This one hits a little closer to home.

The latest bombshell in the ever-evolving saga of the coronavirus is one that hits close to home for Louisville fans.

Utah Jazz star and former Cardinal Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for COVID-19. This comes less than 24 hours after Jazz teammate Rudy Gobert tested positive, news which resulted in the NBA suspending play across the league.

That’s some solid early work by Gobert in his quest to be the 2019-20 Card Chronicle Least Cool Person of the Year.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Mitchell was the only Jazz player or personnel member to test positive for the coronavirus out of the 58 tests that were administered on Wednesday night. The tests for every other member of the team came back negative.

Obviously our thoughts are with Donovan, who will hopefully be back to 100 percent in no time.

The bigger message/lesson here is don’t be dumb like Rudy Gobert.
