Rudy Gobert said that he is still feeling the side effects from COVID-19.
“The taste has returned, but the smell is still not 100%. I can smell the smells, but not from afar. I spoke to specialists, who told me that it could take up to a year," said Gobert in an interview with L'Equipe.
Gobert's positive test on March 11th shut down the NBA season.
Gobert added that he still feels "weird things," though he doesn't necessarily know if they are attributable to the virus.
"I still feel weird things, but I have never been so long in my life without playing a basketball game! I don’t know if that’s the backlash of the virus. ... Today, I wouldn’t say I’m feeling more tired than before. But I had experiences, a month and a half ago, that scared me. I felt like ants in my toes and wondered what it could be. There were quite a few little things like that."
