The Detroit Pistons says its players and staff are self-quarantining out of an abundance of caution. That's after the Pistons played the Utah Jazz on Saturday, March 7.

Two members of the Utah Jazz were diagnosed several days later with COVID-19.

In a statement, the Detroit Pistons said there was no indication that the novel coronavirus was passed to any players or staff, but "out of an abundance of caution," the medical staff recommended they self-quarantine until further notice. 

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan says the health department has visited the hotel where the Jazz were staying. Duggan says the health department was satisfied the hotel was clean and believes there's no risk of infection for future guests.

He did not disclose where the team stayed.
