Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic tests negative for the coronavirus; remain in Serbia

Nikola Jokic has tested negative for the coronavirus, yet he is still in Serbia and has not traveled to the United States.

The star of the Denver Nuggets is healthy, but has to produce two negative coronavirus tests before flying to the States.

The Nuggets departed for Orlando on Tuesday, yet the Serbian center will travel to Florida in the coming days.

Jokic tested positive for the virus a few weeks ago.

“A source said Nikola Jokic is healthy. However, the center had to produce two negative coronavirus tests in Serbia before traveling to the United States. And then he was required to produce two more negative tests before flying to Orlando with the team.

A source said the timing of everything made it difficult and too tight of a fit for Jokic before the team departed on Tuesday,” Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN reports.
