Jokic posted seven points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 12 rebounds and eight assists across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 106-96 loss to the Jazz.
On a night where his shot wasn't working, Jokic still showed significant fantasy impact with his rebound and assists totals. He came up on the losing end of the battle in the paint with Rudy Gobert, who kept him contained at short range, leaving Jokic with little choice but to take some shots outside. Although he drilled one shot from beyond the arc, he showed very little offensively and ended up being very effective dishing the ball from the wing underneath to Paul Millsap. DEspite this losing effort, Jokic can't be ignored in any format. He's a top-flite option at center whenever he takes the floor.
Jokic mustered 12 points (5-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists across 23 minutes in Tuesday's 96-86 preseason loss to the Thunder.
The big man posted his first double-double in four preseason tilts to close out the exhibition slate, even as he generated his lowest shooting percentage over that span. Jokic has provided relatively well-rounded stat lines in each contest and appears primed for a potential breakout campaign in what will be his first full season as a clear-cut starter.
Jokic scored 19 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 24 minutes during Sunday's preseason loss to the Spurs.
The elbow injury that sidelined him earlier in the week didn't appear to be an issue for the 22-year-old. Jokic had a breakout 2016-17, but he may have just been scratching the surface of his potential, and his production could continue to rise now that he has Paul Millsap alongside him in the Nuggets frontcourt.
Jokic (elbow) is not listed on the team's injury report in advance of Sunday's preseason contest against the Spurs, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.
Jokic sat out Wednesday's preseason affair against the Lakers with a right elbow strain, but the discomfort has seemingly subsided. As a result, he should be expected to play and start Sunday's contest unless word emerges to the contrary.
Jokic will not play during Wednesday's preseason game against the Lakers due to a right elbow strain, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
It's unclear when Jokic suffered the injury, though it's apparently giving him some discomfort. More word on the severity of the injury should come within the following days. But, for the time being, he'll remain out Wednesday. As a result, Mason Plumlee or Kenneth Faried could see more time at center.
