"Got no fever, no symptoms as of right now and just blessed to be okay," Mitchell says. "Right now, the biggest thing for me is to just stay in isolation and just keep to myself."
"I keep making the joke when people keep asking me that if you were to tell me that I would play in a 7-game series tomorrow, I'd be ready to lace up."
Mitchell says it took a while to "cool off" after Gobert's positive test ... but admits he's just happy his other teammates weren't affected.
Of course, Gobert has apologized for being so careless about COVID-19 before his diagnosis. Remember, he jokingly touched a bunch of mics and recorders during a press conference. Gobert says he now understands he needs to take the matter seriously and has donated more than $500k to relief efforts.
