Top Nikola Jokic News

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Out Wednesday

    Jokic (hamstring) is out for Wednesday's game at Milwaukee, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    On the second night of a back-to-back, the Nuggets are rolling out a skeleton crew against the Bucks. Without Jokic in the frontcourt, more minutes should be available for Zeke Nnaji, DeAndre Jordan, Jeff Green and Vlatko Cancar.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Questionable Wednesday

    Jokic (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Jokic returned from a two-game absence Tuesday against the Pelicans and posted 25 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and a steal in 36 minutes. However, he's still dealing with a tight left hamstring ahead of the second half of the back-to-back set. Zeke Nnaji would likely see increased run Wednesday if Jokic is unavailable, but the two-time MVP's role against the Pelicans suggests that he's unlikely to have many limitations if he's given the green light to play against Milwaukee.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Triple-doubles in return

    Jokic (hamstring) chipped in 25 points (11-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal across 36 minutes during Tuesday's 99-98 victory over the Pelicans.

    After sitting out the Nuggets' last two games, Jokic picked right up where he left off in his return to the lineup Tuesday, recording his 15th triple-double of the season. While the two-time MVP could get some more rest as the season progresses, neither the hamstring injury or a prior wrist issue that cost him time appear to be anything serious. With Tuesday's victory, the Nuggets now sit just one win behind the Celtics for the best record in the league.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Available Tuesday

    Jokic (hamstring) will play Tuesday against the Pelicans, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Jokic had been trending in the right direction leading up to tipoff, and the team has since confirmed his availability. He figures to see his name in the starting lineup after missing Denver's last two contests due to a left hamstring injury.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Trending toward playing Tuesday

    Head coach Michael Malone suggested Tuesday that Jokic (hamstring) is "trending toward probable" for the evening's contest versus the Pelicans, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Jokic seems to be in line for his return from a two-game absence due to right hamstring tightness and will likely resume his usual starring role in the Nuggets' frontcourt. Jokic's return should send Zeke Nnaji back to a bench role and should mean far fewer added minutes are available in Denver's frontcourt for the reserves who have added some extra work over the past two games.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Questionable Tuesday

    Jokic (hamstring) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Jokic has missed the last two games due to left hamstring tightness, and it's not yet clear whether he'll suit up against New Orleans. He was on a tear prior to his absence, averaging 24.5 points, 12.8 rebounds and 12.0 assists in 33.0 minutes per game over his last six appearances. If he's sidelined once again, Zeke Nnaji and Jeff Green should continue to see increased run.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Ruled out Sunday

    Jokic (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Jokic continues to deal with a hamstring issue, and he'll be unavailable for a second consecutive game. Zeke Nnaji, DeAndre Jordan and Jeff Green will likely see increased run in the frontcourt once again Sunday, while Jokic's next chance to suit up will be Tuesday against the Pelicans.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Questionable for Sunday

    Jokic (hamstring) has been termed questionable to don the uniform Sunday versus the Thunder.

    Jokic skipped Friday's affair against the Pacers due to hamstring tightness, and it's unclear if the issue will subside enough for the star big man to give it a go. The coaching and medical staff will likely take every precaution with Jokic to ensure his hamstring issue doesn't turn into something that will cost him extended time. Zeke Nnaji would likely receive another starting nod Sunday if Jokic is unable to suit up.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Out Friday

    Jokic (hamstring) will not play in Friday's game against the Pacers.

    Jokic was a late addition to Friday's injury report with a hamstring issue, and it is severe enough to keep him sidelined. He will now have a few days to recover before Sunday's matchup with the Thunder. In his absence, Zeke Nnaji and DeAndre Jordan are candidates to see more minutes in the frontcourt.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Dealing with hamstring tightness

    Jokic is questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers due to left hamstring tightness.

    Jokic was a late addition to the injury report Friday and is now in danger of missing his fifth contest of the season. The MVP candidate has posted three straight triple-doubles and five over his past six appearances, but it appears he's dealing with hamstring tightness following Wednesday's win over Minnesota. Denver will presumably be extremely cautious with its star player, so fantasy managers must monitor Jokic's status closely ahead of Friday's 9:00 PM EST tip.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Goes off with another triple-double

    Jokic posted 31 points (12-20 FG, 7-7 FT), 11 rebounds, 13 assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Wednesday's 122-118 victory over Minnesota.

    Incredibly, Jokic has rattled off six consecutive triple-double performances, and although his competition during the run has been soft, the feat is impressive nonetheless. Jokic's dime-dropping ability is the key to achieving the milestone, and the All-Star has recorded double-digit assist totals in 21 games this season.
