Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Gets second straight double-double Wednesday
Jokic posted 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 106-98 loss to the Heat.
Jokic didn't see a noticeable surge in playing time, but still came through with his second straight double-double, sending his fantasy stock back on the rise again. Meanwhile, starting center Jusuf Nurkic has started to slump again, turning in single-digit points in four straight games while topping 20 minutes just once in that span. Jokic could begin to cut further into Nurkic's workload, even if he continues to slot in on the second unit.
