Nikola Jokic struggled with early foul trouble in the Nuggets’ 102-101 loss to the Grizzlies on Thursday, finishing with just nine points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 14 minutes.
This actually isn’t the worst line as Jokic hit all five of his free throws and did well on a per-minute basis. The problem is that owners are hoping that he can get some separation from the other bigs. The current late-round production and upside makes him a must-own player in 12-team formats for the time-being. Jusuf Nurkic saw just three minutes tonight in his return from his knee injury.
