The Denver Nuggets are facing the Golden State Warriors as they look to get back on track. The Western Conference’s top seed has stumbled a bit and is trying to return to its winning ways. Ahead of a huge matchup against Stephen Curry and the Dubs, there is a massive question to ask: Is Nikola Jokic playing tonight vs. the Warriors?
Nikola Jokic injury status for Nuggets vs. Warriors
Jokic is listed as questionable with right calf tightness on the NBA injury report. The MVP candidate has missed the last two games, both of which resulted in losses for Denver. Fortunately for the Nuggets, the Warriors are very bad on the road, so securing a win at Ball Arena is still possible without the big man.
As Jokic receives MVP love in some corners of the basketball world and scorn in others, he is looking to finish the regular season healthy and potentially snatch the award from Joel Embiid in a neck-and-neck race. In games this season, he is averaging 24.9 points, 11.9 rebounds and 9.9 assists per game while shooting 63.4 percent from the field.
Many other Nuggets are listed on the injury report. Collin Gillespie is out, Zeke Nnaji is listed as questionable and Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr. and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are listed as probable. For the Warriors, Andrew Wiggins, Andre Iguodala and Ryan Rollins are out.
The question of if Nikola Jokic is playing tonight vs. the Warriors remains uncertain. What is clear, though, is that Denver needs him back in the lineup as soon as possible.
