Pistons played Jazz at LCA on Saturday

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Utah Jazz Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Amid the craziest night in NBA history with games being postponed seconds before they were set to begin and eventually the entire season being indefinitely suspended, the Detroit Pistons were asked to self quarantine themselves by the NBA.

The Pistons faced off against the Utah Jazz on Saturday, and Rudy Gobert tested positive for the disease COVID-19 caused by coronavirus on Wednesday night. The results seemingly were delivered seconds before the Jazz were set to tip off against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the game was subsequently postponed. Hours later, the NBA announced the entire season was cancelled indefinitely.

The NBA advised any team that played the Jazz within the past 10 days to self-quarantine, according to ESPN. That includes the Pistons as well as the Cavs, Knicks, Celtics and Raptors.

The CDC recommends self-quarantine to last 14 days and involves separating yourself from any other individuals to limit the potential of spreading the disease. They also recommend you practice social distancing including staying in your home, avoiding public transportation, avoid crowded places and keep about six feet of distance from yourself and others.
