In the interest of preventing future infections, the league announced Wednesday that it would suspend the season indefinitely, but that does little for players and team personnel who might already be infected. In the interest of protecting others, players on teams that have played against the Utah Jazz in the past 10 days have been asked to self-quarantine, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. Those teams are the Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors.
“The safety of our players, staff, fans and the media who cover our team is paramount,” the Raptors said in a statement on Thursday. With so little known about the virus, it’s better for the leagues, teams and players to be safe than sorry
