Jokic had 23 points in the loss to the Kings
Nikola Jokic Shot 9-for-17 from the field and 4-for-5 from the foul line in Friday's loss to Sacramento for 23 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. The Nuggets were destroyed in Sacramento on Friday.
The good news for Jokic's managers was that he still had a respectable night, shooting better than 50 percent from the field while committing just one turnover. According to a statement from Basketball Monster, the NBA Finals MVP continues to provide elite fantasy value, ranking third in 8- and 9-cat formats. Jokic appeared to tweak something in his back in the first quarter, but returned to the game after a quick trip to the locker room. Denver doesn't play at Milwaukee again until Monday, which should help the health of a few of their guys.
Antetokounmpo Probable vs. Nuggets
Giannis Antetokounmpo (right patellar tendinitis) and Damian Lillard (sprained left ankle) are probable for Monday's game against the Nuggets. Antetokounmpo and Lillard were cleared to play in Friday's win over the Hornets, which should be Monday. Bobby Portis and Patrick Beverley are two players who will face a heavy workload if the Bucks are forced to play without their two stars.
