Joe Ingles spoke about the experience of taking the coronavirus test, which he described as ‘horrible’.

Ingles and his teammates in the Utah Jazz had to take the coronavirus test in Oklahoma City after Utah center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus.

“It’s horrible. It’s 10 seconds…with a swab up your nose that literally goes so far up your nose that it feels like it’s about to pop out the top of your head. It’s one of the most uncomfortable feelings I’ve ever felt in my life.

Every guy when they finished was like teary-eyed, because it’s that feeling. And then they back it up with a swab down your throat as well,” Ingles said of the test, via Sam Amick of The Athletic.

Gobert and Donovan Mitchell were the only Jazz players that were tested positive for the virus. The league decided to suspend the season for at least 30 days.
