Denver Nuggets veteran Paul Millsap mistakenly skipped his mandatory coronavirus test yesterday and will miss the team’s scrimmage against the New Orleans Pelicans tonight.

The protocol requires him to stay quarantined in his room for a day until he has an additional test come back negative, according to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols.

If a player misses a coronavirus test on a given day, that means that they have to sit out that day’s activities.

Millsap’s next opportunity to play comes on July 27, the Nuggets’ last scrimmage before their first “seeding game” on Aug. 1.
