Nikola Jokic News
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic was unstoppable against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, leading his team to a 119-103 win with a big triple-double. He posted 32 points with 16 rebounds and 16 assists. In 37 minutes on the court, Jokic also collected a nice amount of defensive stats by tallying four steals and one block. He shot 13-for-24 from the field with a 2-for-6 record from deep. This was Jokic's third career triple-double with at least 30 points, 15 rebounds, and 15 assists -- only Oscar Robertson has managed more (11). Based on his standards, Jokic has had a couple of quiet weeks this month, but it's safe to say he's on the roll again, with the former MVP posting three consecutive triple-doubles since returning from the All-Star break.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic returned to practice on Wednesday after head coach Michael Malone excused him from Tuesday's practice due to his All-Star responsibilities. The MVP favorite played 23 minutes in the All-Star game, contributing 13 points, four rebounds, and nine assists in the West's 211-186 loss to the East on Sunday. Jokic is expected to be fully prepared for the stretch run of the year, set to return at home against the Wizards tomorrow. He's maintaining impressive averages of 26.1 points, 12.0 rebounds, and 8.9 assists in 33.8 minutes per game this season.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (back) drew another questionable tag on Friday while he deals with lingering effects from lower back pain. The two-time MVP was forced to miss their last game on Wednesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder and had to watch a five-point loss. Now, the Nuggets will take on a team at the opposite end of the standings in the Portland Trail Blazers. It wouldn't be surprising if the team just played it cautiously with Jokic, but he also hasn't had to miss much time throughout his career. If he remains on the sidelines for another game, Peyton Watson or DeAndre Jordan will enter the starting five. Jordan did not play in their last contest, so Watson, Christian Braun, and Zeke Nnaji saw some extra opportunities.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (back) is listed as out for Wednesday's matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Lower back pain will cause a rare absence for Jokic, who hasn't sat out since late November. The 28-year-old two-time MVP sounds to be day-to-day and hopes to return when the Nuggets host the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday. Veteran DeAndre Jordan put on a vintage performance in a spot start when Jokic was out on Nov. 27 against the Los Angeles Clippers, posting 21 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one block. Jordan sets up as a strong plug-and-play option as Denver's probable starting center in both DFS and season-long formats despite Chet Holmgren (ankle) suiting up for the Thunder.
