Nuggets' Nikola Jokic will not be suspended for Game 5 Tuesday

Adrian Wojnarowksi reports that the league will not suspend Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic for Game 5 of the team's series against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Jokic was assessed a technical foul for pushing Suns owner Mat Ishbia on the sidelines during Sunday's game between the Nuggets and the Suns, but the star center will not be suspended for Tuesday's game according to Wojnarowski. It was an odd scene during the game and Jokic's culpability is a matter of debate, but the league has decided to fine the center $25,000.

Jokic has scored over 70 fantasy points in each game of the series so far, and is currently projected to score 56 on Tuesday. Our models have him notching 24.4 points, 13.1 rebounds, and 8.4 assists.
