Nuggets' Nikola Jokic (COVID-19) reportedly healthy

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic is healthy and recovered from COVID-19, reports Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

What It Means:

Jokic is good to go for the NBA's restart, but he had travel complications coming from Serbia that will keep him off of Tuesday's team flight to Orlando. There's no concern about his availability when the Nuggets return to action on August 1 against the Miami Heat. Jokic averaged 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.7 blocks, 1.1 3-pointers, and 45.2 FanDuel points over 65 games before the lockdown.

numberFire's models project Jokic to average 26.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.9 blocks, and 1.7 3-pointers per game over the rest of the season. In 2103.8 minutes this season, Jokic is averaging 1.4 FanDuel points per minute and has a usage rate of 26.7 percent.
