This season, players are no longer regularly tested for COVID-19. However, they have to be checked when they exhibit symptoms, or any of their relatives are diagnosed with the virus. Entering the protocols does not automatically mean that the player has the virus.

Jokic is currently averaging 20.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 8.9 assists per game.

With a record of 9-4, the Nuggets are currently second in the Western Conference.
