Joe Ingles admits he would leave the NBA immediately in order to protect his autistic son from the coronavirus.

The sharpshooter of the Utah Jazz is ready to leave the NBA for good if it means it will protect his autistic son from the virus.

“If you had to tell me that you could never play again to protect Jacob from this, I would walk away, fly to Australia and never play another game in my life and be very content with it.

I could walk out of this gym now, in the clothes I’m in, and go to the airport. I would have zero issues (with that choice) because I wouldn’t want to put my family through that.

I don’t want to put Jacob through that. I don’t want to put his sister (Milla) through that, and I definitely don’t want to put his mother through that. So it’s really hard,” Ingles told Sam Amick of The Athletic.
