Coronavirus in Oklahoma: Jazz center Rudy Gobert updates health status in video
Jazz center Rudy Gobert, in a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, said he's feeling "a little better every single day."
"I’m going to start by saying thank you to all the people that have been supportive and for all the positive energy," Gobert said in the video. "It really means a lot. Thanks to the healthcare people of Utah and Oklahoma City and all the great people around me."
Gobert was the first NBA player to test positive for the coronavirus. Jazz teammate Donovan Mitchell and Pistons forward Christian Wood have also contracted the coronavirus.

There are four confirmed positive cases in Oklahoma.
The Jazz announced Saturday that Gobert will donate $100,000 to families in Oklahoma City who have been affected by the coronavirus.
"I’m just wanting to make sure to remind you guys to keep washing your hands frequently with soap and water," Gobert said. "Try to avoid touching your face, your nose, your eyes and of course try to avoid making any unnecessary contact with people. It’s all about protecting yourself and the people around you. I wish I would have took this thing more seriously and I hope everyone else is going to do so, because we can do it together. Take care and stay safe."
