CJ McCollum and the New Orleans Pelicans (27-36) will travel to Ball Arena to take on the Denver Nuggets (37-26) in part of the NBA Sunday slate. 

Will reigning league MVP Nikola Jokic be in the lineup for this Pelicans vs Nuggets matchup?

Due to a non-COVID-related illness, Nikola Jokic missed the Nuggets’ previous outing but a 31-point outing from DeMarcus Cousins was enough to get a win over the Houston Rockets.

According to the NBA’s official injury report, Jokic is listed as probable to return for the Nuggets vs Pelicans matchup on Sunday. Barring any setback, he should play.
