The Denver Nuggets are closing their team facilities for several days after members of the traveling party to Orlando test positive for Covid-19, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday afternoon.

There haven’t been any reports of Nuggets players testing positive for Covid-19 recently. We know that C Nikola Jokic tested positive for coronavirus in Serbia, but has not returned to the United States. He also is asymptomatic and was feeling fine as of last week. Denver has locked the facility since last Saturday, so it’s unclear when things will reopen. Testing needs to take place before anyone returns, per Woj.
