Rudy Gobert, the first NBA player found to have coronavirus, posted an apology Thursday for his “careless” behavior. “I hope my story serves as a warning and causes everyone to take this seriously,” he wrote in a message posted to Instagram. On Monday, Gobert had joked with members of the media by making sure to touch all the microphones and recording devices reporters had placed on the table in front of him as he left a press conference. Two days later he was diagnosed with the virus.
