After the NBA has officially suspended the 2019-20 season following reports of Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19, players from all over the league took to Twitter to share their reactions and respond to the unexpected turn of events that have currently gripped the world. American sports writer and analyst Bill Simmons summed up what everyone seems to be thinking:
Single craziest day in NBA history. It’s not even close. Stay safe out there everybody.

Elsewhere, players expressed shock, disbelief, concern, and, in the case of Isaiah Thomas of the Washington Wizards, a bit of humor.
