NBA Asks Recovered Players Donate Plasma Toward Treatment Research

The Utah Jazz star duo of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert are back to full health, while Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is slowly but surely recovering from the coronavirus.

According to his head coach Brad Stevens, Smart has remained in “great spirits” throughout the process.

“I’m just happy that when he tested positive he continued to experience no symptoms and has felt great ever since. … I’m proud of how he kinda took the initiative to tell people that he had it and that he felt good and that he got online and just continued to ask people to practice social distancing and self-isolation right now,” said Stevens.

Through the leagues’s NBA Together initiative, the NBA is hopeful that once players and team personnel make full recoveries, they are willing to donate their plasma as research to help doctors and pharmacologists come up with a potential treatment for COVID-19.

The campaign itself looks to keep the community informed on the health risk of coronavirus as well as continue to preach social distancing and healthy lifestyle decisions.
