Previous reports surfaced that Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles is ready to retire and be with his family, protecting them from COVID-19 virus.

According to Yahoo Sports Australia, the Australian baller said that he will “never play another game in my life” to protect his family from the virus.

However, Ingles made it clear that he said that when coronavirus was not at its peak and made a promise that he will still play alongside with his Jazz teammate.

“For context, I said this over 2 months ago when we knew nothing about the virus & what it could do,” he tweeted.

“I know the Jazz/NBA would only have us play if they were confident that everyone’s health has been put first. When it’s safe to go back and play, I will not let my teammates down!”
