Plans are being made for the Utah Jazz to stay overnight at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena as the team awaits permission to return home, according to ESPN's Royce Young.

Statement from the Jazz:

"A preliminary positive result came back right before tip-off of the Utah Jazz-Oklahoma City game. Subsequently, the decision was correctly made by the NBA to postpone the game. When it was determined that the individual would be tested, we immediately informed the league office. The health and safety of our players, our organization, those throughout our league, and all those potentially impacted by this situation are paramount in our discussions."

"We are working closely with the CDC, Oklahoma, and Utah state officials and the NBA to determine how to best move forward as we gather more information. The individual is currently in the care of health officials in Oklahoma City. In coordination with the NBA and state officials, we will provide updates at the appropriate time."
