While coach Mike Malone would not commit to whether or not Jokic would play in Game 3 against the Clippers Monday, the Denver Nuggets center went through a full warmup, the team listed him as active and said he would play despite a sprained wrist.
Jokic hurt his wrist on this play early in Game 2 vs. the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.
No update yet on Nikola Jokic's status. He's still questionable with a right wrist sprain. Here's the play it happened on from Game 2. Obviously was able to stay in the game. pic.twitter.com/gaQX3YNKwY

The Clippers vs. Nuggets series is tied 1-1.
