Nuggets delay Summer League mini-camp after positive
COVID-19 test, source says 1

The Nuggets postponed their Summer League mini-camp in Las Vegas due to a positive COVID-19 test and subsequent contact tracing, a league source confirmed to The Denver Post.

The Nuggets were scheduled to have six practices over five days this week starting Tuesday. But the team canceled its first two sessions, citing only “health and safety protocols,” with player and practice availability unknown ahead of its first game Sunday against Miami.

The NBA established separate COVID-19 protocols for vaccinated and unvaccinated players/staff during its Summer League competition.

Fully vaccinated players are not required to quarantine after close contact with an individual who tested positive. Non-vaccinated players must undergo daily testing and are subject to a seven-day quarantine following possible exposure to the virus. It is unclear how many Nuggets players and staff members have received the vaccine or who tested positive for COVID-19.

Denver announced 16 players on its Summer League roster — including Bol Bol, Markus Howard, Bones Hyland and Zeke Nnaji. Nuggets assistant Charles Klask is the team’s head coach.

The Nuggets scheduled four Summer League games: Heat (Aug. 8), Celtics (Aug. 10), Suns (Aug. 12) and Mavericks (Aug. 14). The pair of teams with the best record will play in a championship game Aug. 17. The remaining 28 teams will play a fifth game either Aug. 16 or 17.
