After positive tests for the coronavirus within the Orlando traveling party, the Denver Nuggets have closed the team’s practice facility for several days.

Two members of the travel party reportedly tested positive, which prompted the closing of the facility, according to Mike Singer of The Denver Post.

The facility was locked to players and staff starting June 27 and could be open again later this week, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The next few days of testing will help determine when the facility re-opens to players and staff, Wojnarowski also notes.

It’s not clear if Nuggets players in Denver have tested positive, or if the positive tests are from team staff members.

It was reported last week that Nikola Jokic also tested positive for the virus while in Serbia.
