Utah Jazz's Rudy Gobert Clears NBA's COVID-19 Protocols

Utah Jazz Centre Rudy Gobert and book ahead Rudy Gay have approved the NBA’s health and safety protocols, sources told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon on Friday.

The Jazz went 1-4 with a defensive rating of 120.8 without their All-NBA big man, who tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed in protocols on January 6.

Gobert has averaged 15.5 points, 15.1 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game this season.

Gay, who was placed in protocols on Sunday, averages 9.2 points and 4.6 rebounds.

Utah’s next game is on the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

Gobert also tested positive for the virus on March 11, 2020, the night the NBA was on hiatus for more than four months and finally decided to wrap up the season in a bubble at Walt Disney World in Florida.
