Mike Malone told the media that he didn’t think Nikola Jokic was ready for Wednesday’s game despite being available.
“They might say he was ready but for myself and talking with him, it’s not just is the ankle ready, it’s is his head ready? And I didn’t think he was ready to play tonight so I made that decision.” Interesting. Either way, the mental side of things won’t be a huge hurdle for Jokic to get over and he appears set to return later this week, possibly as soon as the team’s next game. Owners should feel very good about using him next week.
