Gobert was the first NBA player to test positive for coronavirus and was shown being reckless leading up to the days before the NBA shutdown. Mitchell has voiced his displeasure with Gobert and it was reported that the relationship between the two was not salvageable. "It is true we did not speak for a while after this, but we did spoke a few days ago, like I said, we are ready to go win a championship for this team," said Gobert. The two will try to mend their relationship and look for common ground. The NBA is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
