Denver Nuggets forward Juancho Hernangomez will be sidelined for an undetermined amount of time because of mononucleosis. Hernangomez didn’t travel with the Nuggets as they kick off a four-game trip in Charlotte on Wednesday. Hernangomez will remain in Denver “as part of his recovery,” the team announced.
“Then he started coming down with a little bit of a cold, and we did blood work and it came back that he had mononucleosis. … It’s really unfortunate.” Malone said. “He had such a good year for us as a rookie last year. And he could be out for a couple of weeks; that infection obviously is tricky. Hopefully he is able to get the rest he needs to get his body back under control. And then, hopefully when he is healthy, we’ll see that Juancho that we all came to love last year, who was just boundless energy. We haven’t seen that guy yet because of this infection and how hard he worked the whole summer.”
