Following yesterday’s shocking news that the NBA has suspended the 2019-20 regular season after Jazz center Rudy Gobert (and now Donovan Mitchell) tested positive for the Coronavirus, Spurs S&E CEO R.C. Buford has released a statement showing the Spurs support of the decision.

“The health and well-being of our fans, partners, staff, and players will always be our number one priority. All of us at Spurs Sports & Entertainment fully support the NBA’s decision to suspend the season.

We remain in constant contact with a wide range of local and national experts and will continue to make informed decisions based on their research, data, and input. Because this is a situation that changes hour-by-hour we don’t have a lot of answers at this point. We will continue to share information as it becomes available.

We thank our entire Spurs Family for your continued support, patience, and understanding during this time.”

We will continue to keep you informed here at PtR as more information comes out.
