Is Nikola Jokic playing tonight against the LA Clippers? Denver Nuggets Latest Injury Update (Oct. 17)

The Denver Nuggets are preparing to defend their title and all eyes are once again on Nikola Jokic to see if he can take another step up among the NBA greats by winning another championship. His team has two more preseason games before the regular season begins, and the Nuggets will face the LA Clippers in both contests.

In all three seasons for the Denver Nuggets, Nikola Jokic has impressed. With the season starting in a few days, it is unlikely that a team’s best player will appear in all their tune-up matches.

The Nuggets’ most recent game was against the Chicago Bulls and they won 116-102. The Serbian center managed to play 23 minutes and chipped in with 15 points, nine rebounds and five assists.


In three preseason games, the Nuggets won twice and lost once (in their first meeting on October 12) to the Chicago Bulls.

Don’t be surprised if the Denver Nuggets rest Jokic for the first time this preseason, given the gap between the regular season and the upcoming contest.
