• Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are ready to move on from their feud
  • Gobert and Mitchell were both infected by COVID-19
  • The Utah Jazz sat at fourth place in the West prior to the NBA suspension

Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell have had an unfortunate falling-out, no thanks to the Coronavirus. But a few weeks after it was said that their relationship is irreconcilable, it seems the emotions have already subsided as the teammates are now reportedly ready to patch things up.

Utah Jazz executive vice president of basketball operations Dennis Lindsey said Gobert and Mitchell are taking into consideration the welfare of the franchise; hence, the teammates are preparing to settle their personal feud, which stemmed from the two All-Stars testing positive for COVID-19.

"They're ready to put this behind them, move forward, act professionally," Lindsey said, per ESPN. "Look, the COVID-19 night of March was really unprecedented. It brought a microscope to our team, and we get it. With that said, we're very pleased with the collective makeup of our group, Donovan and Rudy in particular.

"We look forward to moving forward. They've said their piece to each other. They've both visited at the ownership level, at management level, at the coaches level, at the players level with each other."

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver suspended the 2020 season after Gobert was confirmed to have been infected by the virus. A day after, Mitchell was reported as a positive case, as well.

The French big man issued an apology after he received a backlash for exhibiting actions that were deemed as “reckless” and “insensitive”. However, he insisted that he was not aware of his condition at the time.

Likewise admitting that he and Mitchell were indeed not on good terms, Gobert, though, stressed that the rift should not get in the way of their quest for a championship.

"We're both ready to go out there and try to win a championship for this team," Gobert said on an Instagram live on April 12. "It's not about being unprofessional. You know everyone has got different relationships -- it's never perfect. People that are married, it's never perfect. So you know, me and my teammates, it's far from perfect. But at the end of the day, we both want the same thing -- and it's winning. We're both grown men, and we both are going to do what it takes to win."

Both players have been cleared of the virus and are now prepared to hit the ground running once the NBA gives the go signal to resume training, and eventually the season.

Prior to the hiatus, the Jazz held the fourth-best record in the Western Conference with a 41-23 record as they had significant contributions from Gobert and Mitchell.

The 7’1 center is averaging 15.1 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks while third-year guard out of Louisville tallies 24.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.
