A person with knowledge of the situation says All-Star forward Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets has tested positive for the coronavirus and is quarantining in his native Serbia.

The person talked to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the player nor the team acknowledged the positive test publicly.

Jokic is expected to be back in Denver long before the team leaves for the Disney complex for the restart of the NBA season next month. ESPN and The Denver Post previously reported Jokic's positive test result.
