Jokic was injured with 44 seconds left in the first half when he stepped on Jerian Grant's foot on a drive to the basket. He stayed on the floor holding his ankle. He stayed in the game long enough to hit two free throws, and the Nuggets immediately fouled to stop the clock.
Jokic went to the locker room and finished the night with eight points, four rebounds and four assists.
Jokic entered the game leading the Nuggets in scoring (15.9 points per game), rebounding (11.0) and assists (4.6).
