Jokic is making progress despite the fact that his ankle remains pretty swollen and he’s definitely inching closer to a return. As for this current road trip, it ends tomorrow in Boston. The Joker isn’t playing tonight and the report wasn’t overly optimistic, so we’ll consider that a stretch. He could be back by next week, however, and we’ll be keeping a close eye on any updates as Jokic ramps up his activity. Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee will continue to see extra minutes at center in the meantime.
