According to reports, Mitchell was last with his son when the Jazz visited the New York Knicks on March 4. The NBA had asked all teams that played the Jazz within the last 10 days to self-quarantine. The Mets decision fell within line with those guidelines.
The NBA was the first major league to suspend its season after Mitchell’s Jazz teammate, Rudy Gobert, tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday.
On Thursday, Major League Baseball announced its decision to cancel spring training and delay the regular season at least two weeks. MLB and the MLBPA announced that spring training operations would be suspended on Friday. Players now have the option to stay in the area of the spring training facility, travel to their club’s home city or travel to their off-season home.
No players, coaches or executives connected to MLB have tested positive for the coronavirus. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports one unnamed Arizona Diamondbacks minor-league players is also being test for COVID-19, but those results were not known.
