Jokic, who tested positive last week and has been asymptomatic, is expected to be cleared to travel to Denver within a week, sources said.
Per league protocols, Jokic will need two negative tests within 24 hours in Serbia before he can receive clearance to travel. Once he arrives in Denver, he’ll need to undergo a cardiac screening and test negative once for the virus.
Jokic has lost 40 pounds and transformed his body during the league’s hiatus for the coronavirus pandemic. This season, Jokic has averaged 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists.
NBA teams, including the Nuggets, returned to team facilities Tuesday to begin testing protocols in advance of traveling to Orlando between July 7 and 9 to begin formal training camps.
