Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and the rest of the isolated members of the Utah Jazz have been cleared of coronavirus.

The players and staff no longer pose a risk of infection to others, regardless of prior testing status, according to the Utah Department of Health.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert was the first player to test positive, a diagnosis which sparked the league to suspend play immediately.

Donovan Mitchell was then diagnosed one day later as positive for coronavirus despite reporting no symptoms whatsoever.

The Jazz say their players, coaches and staff will continue to utilize social distancing along with limiting their time outside of their homes for social activities in accordance with recommendations from the NBA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

With more and more news coming out of players and others now having cleared a lot of the hurdles, there is at least some hope league might be able to salvage the season.
