Rudy Gobert  has been called "patient zero" in the NBA because he was the first player who tested positive for the coronavirus ... before the NBA season was suspended. 

First came the bad news that Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, who also tested positive, were in Detroit Saturday to take on the Detroit Pistons.

Even worse: While Gobert was leaving the court he gave his shooting sleeves to young fans at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

Gobert didn't know at the time he had the virus and I'm sure the fans were very happy to get the sleeves. 

As another site of possible infection, it was reported by WWJ's Charlie Langton the Utah Jazz stayed at the Book Cadillac in Detroit.
