Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Returns to form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic had 14 points (7-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 13 rebounds and eight assists in 34 minutes during the Nuggets' 113-97 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Nearly nabbing a triple-double, Jokic shot above 50 percent after failing to do so in Denver's previous four contests. He hasn't quite resembled a first-round fantasy asset lately, but Wednesday may have symbolized Jokic's emergence from his slump. The NBA will be entering a period of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 virus. While global safety is clearly the priority, owners will hope that Jokic returns from the delay healthy and hungry.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Takes back seat in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic recorded 10 points (4-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Denver's 109-95 win over the Bucks on Monday.

Jokic had only attempted one shot until midway through the third quarter and was on track for his quietest game of the year prior to some Milwaukee turnovers. The Nuggets have lost games to the Warriors and Cavaliers recently and were unable to pull away from the Bucks sans Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), Eric Bledsoe (knee), Khris Middleton (rest) and Brook Lopez (rest). Jokic has looked timid and is slumping, but he'll have no time to reflect prior to a prime-time matchup Tuesday in Dallas.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Disappointing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic finished with just eight points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 104-102 loss to Cleveland.

Jokic failed to reach double-figures for the first time since early December, turning in one of his worst performances of the season. He has certainly slowed on the offensive end over the past two weeks, a stanza that has seen him fall outside the top-20 in standard formats. This is merely a bump in the road for Jokic and he will look to bounce back in what will be a crucial matchup against the league-leading Bucks on Monday.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Perseveres in face of early fouls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic finished with 14 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 114-112 win over the Hornets.

Jokic picked up his fourth foul early in the third, sentencing himself to the bench for the rest of the quarter (and then some). He also committed six turnovers, but in the end Jokic stepped up in the closing stages of the contest and flirted with a triple-double.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Comes close to triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic notched 16 points (7-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 116-100 loss against the Warriors.

Jokic came just three assists shy of posting back-to-back triple-doubles for the first time this season. One of the most versatile big men in the league, Jokic remains the biggest fantasy asset on the Nuggets roster due to his role as a stat-filling, double-double threat.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Triple-doubles in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic totaled 23 points (8-11 FG, 7-9 FT), 18 rebounds, 11 assists and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 133-118 victory over the Raptors.

Jokic was a monster once again, turning in his 12th triple-double of the season. The Nuggets are locked in as a playoff team; however, seeding is everything in what is a stacked Western Conference. There is very little risk of him missing time and so those who have the big-man rostered should look forward to a fruitful fantasy playoff run.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Posts 21 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic tallied 21 points (9-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Friday's 132-103 loss to the Clippers.

Although the Nuggets have the talent to go far in the playoffs, they were no match for a Clippers team that's finally healthy across the board. The team's dependence on Jokic could prove to be a detriment as they make a playoff run, especially when you consider the quality frontcourts that populate the Western Conference. Friday marks the fourth-straight game where the usually-prolific center failed to record a double-double. He faces another stiff test against the Raptors on Sunday.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Fills stat sheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic went for 16 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and four steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 115-98 win over the Pistons.

Jokic has gone three straight games without a double-double but has compensated with impressive levels of accuracy from the floor. The Serbian big man has converted 75.7 percent of his field-goal attempts in those three games while still averaging 24.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists per contest. He has three double-doubles and two triple-doubles in nine February outings.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Efficient two-way effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic posted 24 points (11-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks across 31 minutes during Sunday's 128-116 victory over the Timberwolves.

Jokic hasn't dipped below 22 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in any of his past three games. Sunday's performance also marked the 12th time in Jokic's career that he's posted at least 20 points, two steals and two blocks, with the Nuggets going 9-3 in those contests. In February, he's averaging 27.3 points, 10.8 rebounds, 8.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.6 blocks while shooting 63.8 percent from the field.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic recirded 22 points (9-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 120-116 overtime loss to the Lakers.

Jokic went toe to toe with Anthony Davis all night, and he finished with his sixth double-double in his last seven games. The big man continues to lead the way for the Nuggets' offense, though he faced some criticism for passing up an open three-pointer late in overtime. Rather than shooting with Alex Caruso closing out, Jokic put the ball on the floor and ultimately committed a turnover while attempting to kick the ball to a shooter in the corner.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Two boards shy of triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic accounted for 19 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 13 assists, eight rebounds and one block in 38 minutes during Monday's 127-120 win over the Spurs.

Jokic continues to play at a stellar level of late, with two triple-doubles and two double-doubles during his last five games. He has delivered first-round value since the beginning of 2020, and the Serbian big man is averaging 24.5 points -- on 54.2 percent shooting -- to go along with 10.7 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game since the start of the New Year.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Special performance Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic tallied 30 points (14-24 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 21 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 98-95 victory over the Jazz.

Jokic was phenomenal in the win, becoming just the 10th player in history to record a 30/20/10 game. The Nuggets ran a tight seven-man rotation after Tuesday night's four-team trade. This resulted in the starters all playing in excess of 36 minutes, leading to some gaudy stat lines. Jokic has been the second-ranked player over the past two weeks, and with the Nuggets pushing for a high playoff seeding, the production should continue all the way through to April.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Monster line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic finished with 29 points (11-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, nine assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 127-99 victory over Portland.

Jokic turned in arguably his best all-around performance of the season, lifting the Nuggets to a comfortable victory. He has been a top-five player in eight-category leagues over the past month, a far cry from where he was earlier in the season. Congratulations if you managed to buy low on him after his slow start to the campaign.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Posts impressive triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic exploded for 39 points (16-23 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 assists, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 40 minutes during Sunday's 128-123 overtime loss at Detroit.

Jokic has posted triple-doubles in three of his last seven games, and he double-doubled in the other four. He's averaged 25.3 points, 10.4 rebounds and 9.0 assists during that stretch. The Serbian big man has been tasked with increased responsibility on offense due to the ongoing absences of both Paul Millsap (knee) and Jamal Murray (ankle), and he's embraced the role thus far. His season scoring average is now 20.2 points, a tick above last season's career-high 20.1.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Seventh straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic managed 25 points (8-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists and one block in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 104-96 loss at Memphis.

Jokic extended his double-digit streak to seven games and has also recorded two triple-doubles during that stretch. He continues to embrace a bigger role offensively due to the absences of Jamal Murray (ankle) and Paul Millsap (knee), and that has all resulted in a sizable spike in his production over the past month. The Serbian big man is averaging 23.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 6.1 assists in 14 January contests.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Posts another triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic piled up 24 points (9-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 12 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Sunday's 117-110 win over the Rockets.

Jokic has embraced extra responsibility on offense in the absence of Paul Millsap (knee) and Jamal Murray (ankle). He's triple-doubled twice in the last three games, and over the last six, he's averaging 23.3 points, 11.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists. Jokic has long since put his slow start in the rear-view mirror and is beginning to provide first-round-level value for his fantasy managers.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Another dominant display
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic compiled 27 points (9-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists, four steals and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 113-106 win over the Pelicans.

Jokic struggled from beyond the arc but otherwise was absolutely sensational, amassing a season high in steals and contributing across every category. He continues to shoulder an even more substantial load than usual, and on both ends of the court, with Paul Millsap (knee), Jamal Murray (ankle) and Mason Plumlee (foot) all sidelined, and Jokic is among the elite options in all formats.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Logs triple-double versus Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic amassed 19 points (8-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 loss to the Rockets.

Jokic struggled from the field and committed six turnovers but produced his eighth triple-double through 44 games this season. While his numbers have dipped a bit compared to last year, including his scoring, assist and rebounding averages, Jokic is actually on pace to eclipse his previous record of 12 triple-doubles, which he accomplished across 80 games in 2018-19.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Double-double in win over Wolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic had 17 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3PT, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds, and five assists in Monday's win over Minnesota.

Jokic committed five turnovers and missed all three of his three-point attempts, but he was still an effective offensive hub, handing out five assists in his 34 minutes of action. He took only 15 shots Monday, but he could be relied upon more in the short term if Gary Harris, Jamal Murray and/or Paul Millsap continue to miss time.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Dials up 30 points, 10 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic amassed 30 points (10-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-12 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 32 minutes during Sunday's 115-107 loss to the Pacers.

Jokic was extremely efficient as a scorer while doing his usual damage on the glass. He finished a couple dimes under his average, but he did swipe at least three steals for the fifth time through 42 appearances. Moreover, Jokic has picked it up after a slow start to 2019-20, gradually getting better month by month.
