Danilo Gallinari believes Rudy Gobert was unfairly criticized after his positive coronavirus test.

The center of the Utah Jazz was the first player that was tested positive for the virus, while the NBA was forced to suspend the season after that.

“I think so. Like you said, I’m glad that he’s feeling better and Donovan is feeling better too. But at the beginning, of course. Also, you know, I saw that video where Rudy was touching those microphones in the media room.

But maybe him and all the other players, they didn’t know how bad the coronavirus could be. So yes, I think the critics was too much at the beginning,” Gallinari told Ros Gold-Onwude.
