Rudy Gobert still has smelling issue months after coronavirus diagnosis

The NBA shut down in March when Rudy Gobert became its first player to test positive for coronavirus.

More than three months later, with the league now preparing for a return, the Jazz center is still experiencing its effects.

“The taste has returned, but the smell is still not 100 percent,” Gobert recently told L’Equipe in his native France, as translated by HoopsHype. “I can smell the smells, but not from afar. I spoke to specialists, who told me that it could take up to a year.”

A loss of taste and smell is one of the virus’ symptoms. The 28-year-old Gobert is still expected to play when the NBA resumes its season in Orlando on July 30.

The NBA tested 302 players last Tuesday and 16 tested positive, the league said Friday.
