📅 On this day in 2015, Nikola Jokic scored two points in his NBA debut with the @Denver Nuggets.
Last season, Jokic became the first player in franchise history to win the NBA MVP Award. He’s also the lowest-drafted player in NBA history to be named MVP. PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Nikola Jokic is questionable for tomorrow vs. Dallas. He didn’t practice today. He’s still sore, but no structural damage. – 2:44 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Media was let into Nuggets practice just now as Denver was wrapping up. Nikola Jokic walked off the floor in slides. Doesn’t seem like he practiced today. – 2:33 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Nikola Jokic just walked off the #Nuggets practice court as the media walked in. He was wearing flip flops, so, safe to say he didn’t do anything today. – 2:29 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Jakob Poeltl’s primary defensive matchups in the last 3 games:
Jokic, Giannis, and Davis

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Confirming what @Michael Singer reported: No structural damage to Nikola Jokic’s knee, which is sore after banging knees with Rudy Gobert. Jokic could possibly be listed as questionable with a knee contusion against Dallas on Friday. Denver will list injury report tomorrow. – 5:04 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Nikola Jokic is sore following his knee-to-knee collision, but there’s nothing structurally wrong, I’m told.
I’d expect him to be questionable with the same diagnosis — a right knee contusion — for Friday. Team is generally conservative, so wouldn’t be surprised if he sat out. – 4:32 PM

More on this storyline

Michael Singer: P.J. Dozier on Jokic: “He’s in good spirits and he’ll be ready to come back.” Said it was a sigh of relief just to see him get up after knocking knees with Gobert. -via Twitter @msinger / October 28, 2021
Ryan Blackburn: P.J. Dozier on who has to step up if Nikola Jokić is out: “We have to be stars in our roles.” Said nobody can replace Nikola by themselves. Just like without Jamal, it takes everybody. -via Twitter @NBABlackburn / October 28, 2021
