Sources: Nikola Jokic expected to join Nuggets at Disney in next couple of days

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Denver Nuggets expect All-Star center Nikola Jokic to arrive in Orlando from his native Serbia to join the team for the NBA restart in the next couple of days, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Jokic tested positive for COVID-19 in June, but has since tested negative consecutively and is cleared to enter the campus at Walt Disney World.

Earlier in the week, the 7-footer had complications with travel and wasn’t able to make it to Denver to depart with his teammates.

This is a solid step for the organization after the initial shock of its franchise player contracting the virus outside of the United States.

Jokic is in good health, sources said.

Jokic, 25, is averaging a career-high 20.2 points along with 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 65 games for the Nuggets, who are +2200 at BetMGM to win the NBA title.
