Nikola Jokic

One top NBA star has tested positive for the coronavirus with just over a month to go before the league’s planned restart in Orlando.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on Tuesday that Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic tested positive for the disease in his native Serbia, delaying his return to the United States temporarily. Wojnarowski adds that Jokic has been asymptomatic since the positive test last week and is expected to be cleared to travel to Denver within a week.

The two-time All-Star Jokic had been back in the headlines in recent days for his slimmed-down figure during an appearance at an exhibition game in his home country. Reports later emerged however that Jokic may have been exposed to the virus at that game, having been in close proximity to an individual with a confirmed positive test.

Jokic, 25, had been averaging 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game for the Nuggets this season. The team will be the No. 3 seed in the West upon the expected resumption of play at the end of July.
