Jokic scored 29 points (11-23 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-10 FT) while adding 18 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 105-102 win over the Mavericks. The points, boards and even the assists were all game highs, as Jokic dominated at both ends of the court until the Nuggets took their foot off the gas in the fourth quarter and let the Mavs back in it. The 22-year-old is now averaging 19.4 points, 11.6 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 three-pointers over his last five games, and there are few players in the NBA who can match his all-around contributions from a frontcourt position when Jokic is locked in.

Nikola Jokic dominated in a 105-102 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday, scoring 29 points with a season-high 18 rebounds, seven assists, one block and two steals in 33 minutes. The matchup was obviously favorable, but the big takeaway from the game was that Jokic didn't log any minutes next to Mason Plumlee -- Jokic's advanced stats are better across the board when Plumlee is off the floor and he's clearly more comfortable playing all his minutes at the five. The Denver offense was running through him even more than usual tonight and he grabbed nine offensive rebounds, finishing 11-of-23 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line. His owners will be hoping that coach Malone sticks with this rotation on Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

Jokic scored 23 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Spurs. Jokic had a decent night overall despite failing to record a double-double for a third straight game. Since returning from injury, JOkic has basically kept pace with his season averages but is distributing the ball a bit more, as he's averaged 16.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists over that 15-game span. His shot has been about 10 percent colder in that span though (44.6 percent) so he'll need more nights like Saturday to boost that average back up.

Nikola Jokic finished with 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's 112-80 loss at San Antonio. Jokic was very productive, hitting 3-of-6 from behind the arc and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line, persevering despite a blowout on the scoreboard. He was one of just two Nuggets (Gary Harris) to go for double-digit point totals, please his fantasy owners. He also chipping in with nine rebounds, seven assists and steals. Jokic and his teammates have just three games on tap in the upcoming week, but favorable home games against the defensively-challenged Mavericks and Suns highlight the slate.

Jokic generated 14 points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds and three assists across 28 minutes in Friday's 87-78 win over the Grizzlies. Jokic improved on what had been a nightmarish 19.0 percent shooting night versus the Hawks on Wednesday, but not by a great deal. The 22-year-old big man still shot under 40.0 percent for the fourth time in the last five games, and he's now gone just 1-for-11 from behind the arc in the last two contests. Jokic's shot attempts were also down Friday, as the eight he put up were his second-fewest over the last 14 games. Despite some ragged offensive efforts recently, Jokic's above-average work on the boards and in assists is keeping his fantasy value at near-elite levels.

Jokic posted nine points (4-21 FG, 0-8 3 Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists, three blocked shots and two steals in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Hawks. Jokic's stat line was excellent with one glaring exception - his dreadful shooting totals. He only shot 19 percent from the floor and missed all eight of his shots from beyond the arc. His inability to find the bottom of the basket was a key factor in the Nugget's struggles on Wednesday, and the outcome might have been different if Jokic had come through. Jokic will look to right the ship against the Grizzlies on Friday.

Nikola Jokic hit just 4-of-21 shots, was 0-of-8 from downtown and hit 1-of-2 free throws for nine points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three blocks in 32 minutes of Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Hawks. Oh, what could have been. If Jokic would have hit half his shots (he's a 54 percent career shooter), his scoring number shoots up to about 25 points, and who knows where his head would have been for the rest of the game. But as it stands, he backed up his triple-double on Monday with a full stat line, and the only thing missing was his shot falling. This was his second highest shot total of the season and the arrow is pointing straight up for Jokic. Hopefully he stays as active and sees more shots fall against the Grizzlies on Friday.

Jokic produced 22 points (9-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one block across 36 minutes in Monday's 124-114 loss to the Warriors. The big man found his shot again Monday after going a combined 6-for-23 over his previous two games. It was Jokic's first triple-double of the season, as well as his third game in the last five with double-digit boards. The 22-year-old continues to provide solid production across the stat sheet on the majority of nights, and even the occasional offensive clunker is typically offset by strong work on the glass and in the assists column.

Nikola Jokic had his first triple-double of the season on Monday, scoring 22 points (9-of-16 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with 12 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes. Jokic collided with Stephen Curry late in the third quarter and briefly exited, but he soon returned and continued his terrific play. He came in shooting 26.1 percent in his previous two games, but coach Mike Malone offered a pre-game vote of confidence, saying, "We’re gonna stay with [Jokic] in his struggles. And I have no doubt he’s gonna find a way to fight through this." If you own Jokic, remember those words the next time he goes through a brief slump.

Jokic registered eight points (3-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists and seven rebounds across 34 minutes in Saturday's 106-98 loss to the Kings. The big man became more of a ball distributor Saturday, while having trouble finding the net himself, particularly from long distance. Jokic's assist total equaled a season high, and factoring in his contributions on the glass, he's now brought down at least seven rebounds in eight consecutive contests. The 22-year-old has actually endured shooting struggles in three of his past four games, posting no better than a 35.7 percent success rate. However, given his typically impressive numbers across the stat sheet and 30-plus minutes per night, he remains a highly valued asset in all formats.
