Troy Daniels told the media that the Nuggets currently only have 8-10 players in Orlando which infers that 7-9 players are yet to join the squad for the NBA restart.
This news comes as a bit of a shock as it was previously reported that only three players (Gary Harris, Michael Porter Jr. and Torrey Craig) were not in Orlando due to positive Covid-19 tests. If Daniels was accurate with his estimation, this means that there are an additional two-four players that are also away from the team and it is unclear as to why. This is definitely a situation to monitor as the NBA looks to get up and running by the end of the month. Everyone is hopeful that the league can resume in a safe manner in such a difficult time.
