Jokic accumulated 21 points (9-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 16 minutes during Sunday's 132-116 loss to the Blazers. The 26-year-old produced a quality stat line in limited minutes Monday. Jokic had an MVP-type season, averaging a career-high 26.4 points, 8.3 assists and 1.3 three-pointers along with 10.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks while shooting 56.6 percent from the field. The sixth-year center will look to parlay his incredibly strong season into the NBA playoffs for the third-seeded Nuggets.
Jokic scored 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-7 FT) while adding 15 rebounds and 11 assists in 26 minutes during Friday's win over the Pistons. The big man might have posted even better numbers in a more competitive contest, but Jokic saw his smallest workload of the season and was rested for the entire fourth quarter with the game well in hand. He still delivered his 16th triple-double of the year, adding to his new career high, while scoring at least 20 points for the eighth straight game.
Jokic totaled 31 points (14-21 FG, 3-3 FT, 0-3 3Pt), 14 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Thursday's 114-103 win over the Timberwolves. Jokic continued his MVP campaign with yet another 30-point double-double, led by outstanding shooting from inside the arc (14-of-18). It was the big man's second 30-point double-double in as many games, and his fourth in his last seven games (averaging 29.7 points, 10.9 rebounds and 6.7 assists during this stretch). Despite the gaudy numbers, the 26-year-old hasn't made a three in the last three games, but he has gone 28-of-29 from the free-throw line during that span.
Jokic (toe) will play Thursday against the Timberwolves, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Jokic will be available, as expected, after he had been listed as probable with a toe injury. The 26-year-old should see his usual workload of about 35 minutes per game.
Jokic (toe) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against Minnesota. Jokic miraculously hasn't missed a single game this season, and that trend looks likely to continue Thursday despite the fact that he popped up on the injury report. Denver has a back-to-back Thursday and Friday before closing out the season Sunday against Portland. Over the last five games, the MVP candidate is averaging 29.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks per game.
