All five teams that have played the Utah Jazz in the last 10 days are clear of the coronavirus.

The Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors had no players demonstrate symptoms or test positive for the virus.

While that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that any of the teams are safe from infection, it does help lower the level of concern that the virus spread to players who came in contact with the Utah Jazz.

Players from those five teams recently were told to self-quarantine.

The Raptors were told to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Other teams including the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards were told to self-quarantine due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

The 76ers didn’t play the Jazz, but the team still took precaution.

Coaches, players and basketball operations staff of the Wizards are self-quarantined for 3-4 days, as they played the Jazz on Feb. 28.
