Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone says he had coronavirus in March

Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone says he had the coronavirus in March but wasn’t informed of it until months later, he told CBS Denver 4 in an interview Monday.

“I’d say around March 20, I started not feeling well, and we began reaching out to team doctors to see if I could get a test,” Malone said. “Unfortunately, at that time, there was no testing available.

“So, I only found out after the fact. I was able to get an anitbody test probably right around Memorial Day weekend. And not surprisingly, our team doctor called up and said, ‘listen, you tested positive.'”

Malone, sporting a fuller head of hair opposed to the traditional buzz cut he dons on the sidelines, maintained a sense of humor through it all.

“I like to say that I got coronavirus, and I kicked its butt,” he said. “I was able to survive, thank goodness.”

The Nuggets, 43-22 at the time of the league’s pause, will be among the teams in Orlando, Florida, when the league resumes — another bit of optimism for Malone.

“I hope that going down to Orlando will be a safe environment,” he said, “and we can limit the amount of people that actually get (COVID-19).”
