Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic enters health and safety protocols
The Nuggets will have to face the Knicks without Nikola Jokic on Wednesday night.
The Denver big man and two-time reigning MVP was placed into the NBA’s health and safety protocols, according to the team’s injury report.
Jokic will need to be cleared under NBA guidelines in order to return or wait 10 day to automatically exit protocol. He joins guard Bones Hyland, who entered the protocol last Friday.
Through 13 games this season, Jokic is averaging 20.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.9 assists while guiding Denver to a 9-4 record — 5-1 in its last six — good for second in the Western Conference.
The Nuggets will travel to Dallas for a two-game set with the Mavericks on Friday and Sunday.
