The Nuggets have already ruled Niokla Jokic (ankle) out of Tuesday’s game against the Pistons.
Jokic has now missed six straight games. The last report had him unable to jump off his left leg, so hopefully he’s made some more progress since then. Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee will continue to hold the fort down at center and Trey Lyles, coming off a career-best performance, should see extra time as well. The Nuggets were hoping to have Jokic back before the end of this road trip so we’ll see what happens later in the week.
