Jokic (ankle) will not play during Sunday's matchup against the Pacers, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports.
Jokic will miss his fifth straight contest Saturday as he continues to recover from a sprained left ankle. Despite optimism that Jokic will return sometime during the six-game road trip, which ends Wednesday against the Celtics, there's been little indication he's close to seeing the floor, as he's often been ruled out for contests a full day in advance. Following Sunday's game, he should be considered day-to-day, with more updates on his status likely emerging as he ramps up his activity. In the meantime, Mason Plumlee and Kenneth Faried will probably continue seeing the bulk of the minutes at center.
Jokic (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports.
Jokic will be missing a fourth straight game Friday, as he continues to work his way back from a sprained left ankle. According to coach Michael Malone, he remains optimistic that Jokic will return at some point during the team's current six-game road trip, which would mean the latest he could be back is next Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics. Look for another update once Jokic is back to practicing in full, though he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. The Wizards went with a small lineup that featured a frontcourt of Will Barton, Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried in their last game, with Mason Plumlee also seeing increased minutes.
Jokic (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Pelicans, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.
As expected, Jokic has not yet progressed enough in his recovery to take the floor. He's still traveling with the team in hopes of playing late on the road trip, however, which ends Dec. 13 against the Celtics. In the meantime, Mason Plumlee and Kenneth Faried will likely continue seeing expanded roles in the frontcourt.
Jokic (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Monday's game against the Mavericks, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports.
Jokic had to sit out Saturday's game with an ankle injury and will now miss his second consecutive contest. He's currently traveling with the team on their current six-game road trip and originally stated he hoped to play near the middle of the trip, so Friday's tilt with the Magic seems like a realistic possibility for a return. Either way, Jokic will continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis despite likely missing the next few games at least. Mason Plumlee should pick up another start after posting 12 points, six rebounds and six assists across 31 minutes Saturday.
Jokic (ankle) is traveling with the team for their upcoming six-game road trip with hopes of playing near the middle of the trip, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
From the sounds of it, Jokic will likely be out until at least Friday's game against Orlando -- the third game of the trip. That said, nothing is set in stone, and he is essentially day-to-day while he works through treatment and recovery. More word on his status and a clearer timeline will likely emerge as he continues rehabbing. In the meantime, Mason Plumlee will seemingly be the main beneficiary of Jokic's absence.
