NBA.com Staff

DENVER (AP) — 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.

The 22-year-old Hernangomez sat out Monday’s 109-104 loss to Washington with what was listed as an illness. He’s played a total of 13 minutes in two games and has yet to score.

Hernangomez was taken with the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft. He averaged 4.9 points and 3.0 rebounds last season.

He earned a bronze medal with Spain at the 2017 FIBA EuroBasket.
