The bad news keeps coming in Denver nuggets and, to the extensive list of injured players, Now there are three casualties due to sanitary protocol, among which the base Facundo Campazzo is presented..
Although the Cordoba appears as in doubt in the latest team report for today’s game against Chicago Bulls, the truth is that it was indicated that this situation is linked to close contact control protocol, which started after the rookie RJ Hampton is considered as a low part of the health protocol. Both Campazzo and Markus Howard they are, for now, the only two affected.
The situation presents itself as a real headache for the coach Michael Malone, who also cannot count on the injured Paul Millsap (left knee), Gary Harris (left adductor) and Jamychal Green (left shoulder).
Thus, with five confirmed casualties and Campazzo’s to be confirmed, the Colorado franchise will be decimated in the face of tonight’s duel against the Bulls at the United Center, from 22.00
What does it mean that Campazzo is included in the NBA’s sanitary protocol
Although it was not confirmed that Facundo Campazzo actually has Covid-19, the truth is that the NBA considers close contact sufficient reason to put the player out of action for a time.
Being considered close contact, the Cordovan will now be subjected to daily tests (which can be more than one per day) until the doubts that you have contracted the virus are completely dispelled.
Although Denver can appeal the decision by the league, the truth is that it is not common for them to do so since the controls have been very successful so far in the NBA, both this season and in the bubble in 2020. It should be clarified that, as long as a team has to eight players available for a match, you cannot request a rescheduling of it.
