Jokic is dealing with a sprained right ankle, but is considered probable for Thursday's game against the Spurs, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Jokic likely picked up the injury during Tuesday's victory over the Lakers, but it appears to be just a minor ailment, as he's already being listed as probable. As long as he doesn't feel any significant residual soreness following Thursday's morning shootaround, he should take on his usual place in the starting lineup at center against the Spurs. He's coming off a monster performance of 29 points, 15 rebounds, three blocks and an assist over 34 minutes and should be on double-double watch yet again Thursday.
Jokic posted 29 points (12-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 127-121 victory over the Lakers.
Following up a huge double-double on Monday, Jokic repeated the feat by grabbing his highest total of rebounds in nearly a month and coming within two points of a new career high in scoring. Jokic has been outstanding over his last nine games, averaging 22.7 points, 10.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists, and he is quickly becoming one of the premier big men in the NBA in terms of multi-faceted production.
Jokic recorded 30 points (13-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and three steals across 36 minutes during a 125-112 win against the Magic on Monday.
Jokic set a career-high with 30 points in a thoroughly impressive performance. The 36 minutes were the second-most he's received this season. It was his third straight double-double and first 30-point game of the season. He's really rolling over his last five outings, with averages of 22.3 points on 68.6 percent shooting, 9.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 three-pointer per game. Jokic has a good chance to continue his run of extremely good form against the Lakers on Tuesday in the second half of a back-to-back.
Jokic (illness) compiled a game-high 22 points (7-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal across 30 minutes in a 140-112 win over the Pacers on Thursday.
Making his return from a one-game absence due to the illness, Jokic didn't look one bit sluggish, as he led the Nuggets in points, rebounds and assists to stop his team's five-game losing streak in emphatic fashion. Jokic has recorded at least four assists in eight straight appearances, and in 13 of his last 14 outings. His dominance in that category relative to most other starting centers makes him a top-tier fantasy option at his position.
Jokic was held out Saturday against the Thunder because of an illness, but after having four full days in between games to rest up, he'll be ready to go for Thursday's tip off in London. It's fully expected that Jokic, who was listed as probable heading into the day, will start and push for a 25-to-30 minute workload. Jokic's return would result in Jusuf Nurkic moving back to the bench after Nurkic posted a 11-point, 10-rebound double-double Saturday.
