The Oklahoma City Thunder’s winning streak has reached four games, and they hope to extend it by avenging their previous loss to the Denver Nuggets. But keep in mind that Nikola Jokic is still.
Injury Report Thunder – Nuggets: Will Nikola Jokic continue to shine?
- The Nuggets
Back at the start of the season, the Oklahoma City Thunder lost their second game in Denver, 117-122.
Nikola Jokic delivered his second triple-double in three games with 19 points, 16 rebounds, and 13 assists in a typical MVP performance.
Since that game, the Nuggets have split their next four games, losing to the Blazers and winning one against the Lakers while also defeating the Lakers and Jazz.
Prior to the game, the Nuggets provided an update on the team’s injury situation.
Collin Gillespie is out indefinitely due to leg surgery.
Devon Reed’s (personal) status has been upgraded to probable.
Ish Smith (calf) and Bones Hyland (hip) both questionable?
- The Thunder
The Thunder (4-3) host the Nuggets (4-3) in Denver (4-3). The Thunder have won four straight games, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is playing like one of the best players in the league. In their most recent win over the Orlando Magic, Gilgeous-Alexander scored 34 points on 12-of-18 shooting, earning MVP chants from the home crowd.
Chet Holmgren, who suffered a Lisfranc fracture and subsequent surgery, is the only player on the OKC Thunder injury report.
Josh Giddey returned to the lineup against the Magic, allowing Mark Daigneault to start the four players he prefers.
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Aleksej Pokusevski, or another Thunder big man could fill that spot, given his proclivity for rotating big men.
Thunder Starting Lineup: Josh Giddey, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Luguentz Dort, Jalen Williams, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl
