Nuggets reigning MVP Nikola Jokic left in the second quarter against Utah Jazz to a right knee contusion.
«I really haven’t had a chance to talk to trainers yet but I don’t think it’s anything too too serious» Denver coach Michael Malone said after the game.
«He said he thinks he’s fine – Monte Morris said – He’s a real tough dude. I am sure he will be OK. I hope so».
I’m hopeful this Nikola Jokic injury isn’t anything more than a contusion. Leg wasn’t planted when hit, didn’t see any buckling. pic.twitter.com/liUuQFWYzW
