MLB is reportedly set to announce it has announced that due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, exhibition games are being suspended until further notice. The start of the season is expected to be delayed.

The NBA announced last night that all games were being suspended until further notice after Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert tested positive for Coronavirus. After testing all other Jazz players and personnel, Donovan Mitchell also tested positive.

The MLS has suspended play, the NHL is expected to announce today that play has been suspended, F-1 has canceled its upcoming race, the PGA Tour is not allowing fans for the foreseeable future at its events and multiple college conferences have suspended play for baseball and basketball.

So no sports for a while, guys.

UPDATE — MLB has officially suspended spring training games and will delay the start of the season by at least two weeks.
