Game Time Decision

Jokic is questionable to play on Saturday against Philadelphia due to a hamstring injury.

The Nuggets star has been sidelined by a hamstring injury for the last three of the team’s last four contests, but it is anticipated that he will return for Saturday’s game.

He has recorded a triple-double in six of his last seven games, averaging 24.6 points, 12.6 rebounds, 11.7 assists, and 1.3 steals per game while playing 33.4 minutes per contest on average.

  • Jamal Murray – Questionable

Due to a sprained left hip, Murray is being evaluated to determine whether or not he will be able to play in Saturday’s game against the 76ers.

As Murray’s status for Wednesday’s game in Milwaukee was listed as “managing a knee injury,” it was clear that he was most likely just resting rather than actively participating in the game. On the other hand, the fact that he has a sprained left hip adds to the sense of ambiguity that surrounds his status in the days leading up to Saturday. On the day of the game, the squad ought to provide additional details regarding his condition.

Bruce Brown (knee), who was also listed on the injury report prior to Saturday’s game as questionable, has a chance to start again if Murray is unable to play. If Brown is unable to play, Murray will start for the team.


Joel Embiid Fri, Jan 27 Foot
Game Time Decision
  • Joel Embiid – Questionable

Embiid’s status for Saturday’s game against the Nuggets is in doubt due to a foot injury.

Embiid recently had to sit out a game because of discomfort in his left foot, but on Wednesday he made his return to the court and recorded a double-double consisting of 26 points and 10 rebounds.

It would appear that the problem is still bothering him, which could keep him out of action for another competition; however, there have been no reports about the candidate for MVP suffering a setback, which suggests that the injury is not serious.

On the other hand, if Philadelphia chooses to play it safe and keeps Embiid out of the lineup, then Montrezl Harrell and Paul Reed are candidates for increased playing time again.
