Nikola Jokic was phenomenal in Game 2, but it might have come at a cost. Jokic found his way on the Nuggets injury report ahead of Game 3 on Monday night.

It’s hard to envision Jokic not being available for Game 3, but it also was a surprise to see him pop up on the injury report. If the Nuggets don’t have Jokic on Monday night, it will certainly hurt their chances of trying to take a 2-1 series lead on the Clippers.

After an okay first game, Jokic was incredible in Game 2 scoring 26 points to go along with 18 rebounds. Los Angeles had no answer for Jokic, who dominated for the entirety of the game.

We will continue to keep you updated here at Denver Stiffs when more information on Jokic and his status for Game 3 comes available.
