NIKOLA Jokić was and remains the main star of the Denver Nuggets, but that team’s campaign for the NBA title is experiencing setbacks these days.
The most gruesome part of those events was reported to you by “Novosti” yesterday, in the form of a story about how one of the three most important players of the team from Colorado, Michael Porter Jr., is out of the team until further notice because his younger brother – killed one person, under the influence of alcohol.
New bad news then befell the nagets:
As reported by Mike Singer, a reporter for the “Denver Post”, a reserve and very important playmaker for the team until the “second star of the club”, Jamal Murray, “Bones” Hyland, is fully recovered – experienced a lot of bad luck.
In Sunday’s loss to Oklahoma, the first after nine consecutive victories, he went to the bench early in the fourth quarter because he “felt discomfort.” That’s what the assistant coach and acting head of the professional staff in the absence of the sick Michael Malone, David Adelman, said at the time.
However, in this morning’s warm-up in New Orleans, Highland did not participate. It turns out he injured his finger and the question is when he will be able to play again.
“Bones” not only likes to give three-pointers from eight, nine meters, or to attractively play his teammates…
… and he is no stranger to alley-up passes from half the court either…
… out of all NBA players drafted last year, he was selected as the 26th pick, currently second in three-pointers made, second in percentage of long-range shots, eighth in points, and ninth in assists.
However, after two not-so-good news for the Denver Nuggets, it is encouraging that Nikola Jokic attended shooting practice on Tuesday morning local time in New Orleans, and that practice was also attended by coach Malone.
There is still no official notification from the Colorado club whether the Serbian ace will be able to play against the pesky Pelicans, who are fourth in the Western Conference with only six losses at home this season.
