NBA Finals: Jokic rolls ankle in Game 4
Denver Nuggets fans were given a huge scare on Friday when superstar Nikola Jokic landed awkwardly on his ankle in the first quarter of Game 4 against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.
As Jokic was contesting a rebound, he landed on Max Strus foot, rolling his ankle in the process. Heres how it happened:
Jokic was only able to play through it for a few minutes before he left the court to get the ankle checked out in the locker room at the end of the first quarter. He came back onto the court in the middle of the second quarter when the game was tied, 30-30 and he was not wearing any tape or bandages on the ankle.
