Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic has been listed as questionable for Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals series against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Jokic played a huge role in Denver’s equalizing Game 2 win, posting 26 points, 18 rebounds and four assists on 10-17 shooting from the field.
The Nuggets aren’t especially deep at the center position, so if Jokic were to miss the game, it’s likely that rotation-bigs Mason Plumlee and Jerami Grant would see their minutes increased.
It’s still possible that Jokic will be ready to go, and you’d have to assume he’ll do everything possible to be on the floor for an absolutely pivotal playoff game like this one.
The Nuggets are heavy underdogs in this series and will need all they help they can get.
