Nikola Jokic became the biggest star to recently test positive for the coronavirus. It would be a big loss to the Denver Nuggets if the Serbian center has to miss the season resumption.

According to Mike Singer of Denver Post, the Nuggets are confident that Jokic, who is asymptomatic, will at least be with them in Orlando. He also revealed that it is unclear when the 25-year-old would be permitted to enter the United States.

This season, Jokic averaged 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game for the Nuggets. It will be a different version of him when he returns to play, having lost weight during the lockdown.
