Known for rarely missing games, even when not at full health, Jokic's ability to power through challenges remains a crucial asset for Denver.

While an official update is anticipated from Nuggets head coach Michael Malone post-game, the initial signs suggest Jokic's injury scare was not as alarming as feared. 

As long as he concludes the game without setbacks, the Nuggets and their fans can breathe a sigh of relief, maintaining their reliance on Jokic's on-court presence. (SOURCE: Sports Illustrated)
