Tuesday night’s game between the Denver Nuggets and the New Orleans Pelicans is scheduled, and center Nikola Jokic’s health is a concern. The hamstring ailment that has kept the two-time NBA MVP out of action recently is being treated.

According to Forbes’ Joel Rush, Nikola Jokic’s participation in Tuesday’s game is still uncertain, and we might not know for sure until the start of the game.

However, the Nuggets revealed that Jokic will be available to play against the Pelicans only minutes before tip-off.

Another important Nuggets player, Michael Porter Jr., is also listed as questionable for personal reasons.

Nikola Jokic

Jokic could win the MVP award for the third consecutive year as he averages 25.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 9.9 assists per game for the Nuggets. Denver is in first place in the Western Conference, two games ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies, in large part due to his performance.

For the Nuggets over the years, the center has been resilient—to put it mildly—carrying a huge load in Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray’s absence. Over the previous two seasons, the trio didn’t play much together, and this season, their time on the floor together has been spotty. If Jokic is out, expect Aaron Gordon, Jeff Green, and DeAndre Jordan to step up.
