The NBA has suspended the rest of the season due to concerns regarding the coronavirus, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

News of the season being suspended comes after it was announced that Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus. 

Gobert's diagnosis was revealed after the Thunder-Jazz game was postponed. Players and staff on both teams have been quarantined at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The league's decision to suspend games comes after ESPN reported that the NBA's Board of Governors reached a consensus on not having fans attend arenas. 

A short while after confirming that the Pelicans-Kings game would go on as scheduled, the game was canceled. 

In wake of the NBA's cancelations, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has said those who work at American Airlines Center and get paid hourly will be taken care of. 

Cuban also appeared on Get Up on Thursday, and said he can see games resuming, ultimately continuing into August.

He also confirmed that Mavs employees will be paid as though they worked the next four home games. 

Kevin Love also announced that he'll be committing $100,000 from the Kevin Love Fund to help support the Cavs arena and support staff who "had a sudden life shift due to the suspension of the NBA season."

"I hope that during this time of crisis, others will join me in supporting our communities," he wrote. You can read his full message below.

LeBron James responded to the news on social media. "Man we cancelling sporting events, school, office work, etc etc," he wrote on Twitter. "What we really need to cancel is 2020! Damn it’s been a rough 3 months. God bless and stay safe."

On Thursday, the NBA released official protocol for all 30 teams.
