Nikola Jokic tested positive for coronavirus
Denver Nuggets all-star Nikola Jokic was positive in the Serbia coronavirus test.
His return to the United States to participate in NBA games in Orland has been temporarily delayed.
Jokic was asymptomatic last week and tested positive and is expected to return to Denver within a week.
Under the league agreement, the Nuggets big men will need to perform two negative tests in Serbia within 24 hours before being allowed to return to the United States.
When he arrives in Denver, he will undergo a cardiac examination and perform a negative test on the virus.
Jokic has spent time in Belgrade at the latest event of the Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic.
On Tuesday, Djokovic also confirmed that his coronavirus test was positive.
During the interruption, the “clown” lost 40 pounds and changed his body.
Jokic averaged 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game, while leading the Denver Nuggets to a 43-22 record, enough to lag behind the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers.
Like many other NBA teams, the Nuggets returned to the team’s facility on Tuesday to begin testing agreements for all players and staff who formally started training camps in Orlando between July 7 and 9.
Nikola Jokic is not the only member of the Nuggets to announce that he has tested positive for the virus
Head coach Michael Malone also recently stated that he had tested the virus positively during the interruption.
