Baseball won’t be played in Seattle at the end of March. European soccer leagues have already banned fans from the stands. And now, thanks to the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus, the NBA has decided to officially suspend its season.

The player is the Jazz’s Rudy Gobert, sources told ESPN. That led the Jazz’s game at Oklahoma City to be postponed just before tipoff.
