Nuggets say member of organization tested positive for coronavirus

A member of the Denver Nuggets tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday, the organization said in a statement. It is not immediately clear whether the person is a player, but the team said that person was tested on Monday after “experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19.” The Nuggets added the person “is currently under care of team medical staff and in self-isolation.”

The individual was tested through state healthcare officials as opposed to a private entity, a person familiar with the procedure told USA TODAY Sports. The person was granted anonymity since that individual was not authorized to discuss the tests publicly and added that no one else in the Nuggets’ organization was tested.

Since the NBA suspended the season on March 10 after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus, the Nuggets determined that no one in the organization would get tested unless they exhibited symptoms consistent with COVID-19. The Nuggets are mindful of the country’s limited test supply and have maintained they have followed state protocol.
