Nikola Jokic ruled out against Los Angeles Lakers

The Nuggets originally drafted Jokic in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft, allowing him to develop overseas for a season before coming over to the U.S. He has helped Denver off to a 12-9 start in 2017-18, which now has the Nuggets in sixth place in the Western Conference.

Gary Harris added 21 points, and Kenneth Faried had 14 points and 13 rebounds for Denver.

Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic is expected to miss several games with a left ankle sprain, but an MRI on Friday revealed no further damage, league sources tell ESPN.

While driving toward the basket in the second quarter against Chicago, he stepped on Jerian Grant's foot and rolled the ankle. The Bulls have won at least four games in every other National Basketball Association city since that time, making their present struggles in Denver quite remarkable. Barton and the Nuggets host the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday in another plus matchup.

The 22-year-old center was averaging 15.5 points and 10.6 rebounds per game this season.

While that move has allowed Jokic to continue blossoming, it also hurt Denver's center depth.

Jokic is so versatile that it will take more than one player to step up, but the main beneficiaries in terms of playing time would likely be Mason Plumlee and Juan Hernangomez. The sooner he's healthy, the better off the Millsap-less Nuggets will be.
