Nikola Jokic logged 17 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, scoring four points on 2-of-6 shooting with four rebounds and one assist.
Jokic couldn’t do more despite Joffrey Lauvergne (illness) not playing tonight. Owners weren’t using Jokic during the two-game week, but rather hoping he could step into some of the opportunity he has within his grasp. He’s dropable for any mid-level free agent, but waiting one more game seems like a prudent move. In related news, Jusuf Nurkic doesn’t sound like he’s coming back anytime soon and Darrell Arthur left tonight’s game after seven minutes with yet another knee issue.
