Utah Jazz forward Rudy Gobert is attempting to make amends for his ill-advised behavior before testing positive for the coronavirus with a large donation.

Gobert announced Saturday that a portion of a $500,000 donation will be sent to part-time workers at the Vivint Smart Home Arena, where the Jazz play, while the NBA season is suspended. A second part of this donation will go to families in Utah, Oklahoma and France who are affected by the coronavirus.

“I know there are countless ways that people have been impacted,” Gobert said in a statement. ”These donations are a small token that reflect my appreciation and support for all those impacted and are the first of many steps I will take to try and make a positive difference, while continuing to learn more about COVID-19 and educate others. Much gratitude, RG.”

Gobert fell ill before the Jazz’s contest Wednesday at the Oklahoma City Thunder and later tested positive for the coronavirus. The game was then canceled and shortly thereafter, the NBA suspended basketball operations. News later came out that Gobert’s teammate Donovan Mitchell also tested positive.

At a press conference on Monday, Gobert touched microphones placed on the table where he was sitting, joking about the overreaction of people toward the severity of the coronavirus. It was an action he later described as “careless.”

The 27-year-old said that $200,000 of his donation would benefit part-time workers affected by the NBA season suspension and be made in conjunction with another contribution from Larry H. Miller Sports and entertainment. Additionally, Gobert will make a $100,000 contribution to childcare assistance for healthcare workers and those caring for the elderly.
