Jokic has maintained relatively good health throughout the season, missing only three games so far. He has been a consistent force on the court, nearly averaging a triple-double per game. On the other hand, Murray has played fewer games than the other starters, but his impact has been significant whenever he’s been on the court, contributing solidly in scoring and assists.

Jokic’s stellar performance has placed him in the MVP conversation once again, leading the Nuggets to a strong position in the Western Conference standings. Despite the uncertainty surrounding Murray’s availability, the Nuggets remain a formidable team heading into the playoffs, drawing on their championship experience. However, coach Mike Malone is likely to prioritize Murray’s full recovery over rushing him back onto the court.
