The NBA has suspended its season “until further notice" after Utah Jazz players tested positive Wednesday for the coronavirus. 

NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced on Thursday that the league shutdown because of the coronavirus pandemic is likely to last "at least 30 days".

That would see the league shuttered through what would have been about the last month of its regular season.

The NBA suspended play on Wednesday after Utah Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for COVID-19.

The regular season was scheduled to end on April 15 with the playoffs to begin on April 18.
