Nuggets coach Michael Malone, in detailing his own coronavirus recovery, indicated other members of the team also contracted coronavirus.

Apparently, Denver star Nikola Jokic did.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

The United States exempted foreign NBA players from travel restrictions. But that obviously gets more complicated when someone has an active case of coronavirus.

Thankfully, Jokic is asymptomatic. Hopefully, he stays that way and fully recovers. And hopefully Jokic – who was recently seen at a basketball game in close contact with others, including tennis star Novak Djokovic, who also tested positive – didn’t spread it further.
