Nikola Jokic Won’t Be Suspended for Incident With Suns Owner
Denver Nuggets superstar Nikole Jokic will not be suspended by the league for his sideline incident with Phoenix Suns owner Mat Ibisha during Game 4 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals against the Suns.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the league officially announced that they have fined Jokic $25,000 for his slight push of Ishbia during Game 4 action while trying to retrieve the ball in the crowd, but he’ll be available to play Tuesday night in Game 5 in Denver.
Jokic was assessed a technical foul during the game.
“Great win for the Suns last night in an amazing series so far! That should be and is the only story,” Ishbia during a tweet. “Suspending or fining anyone over last nights incident would not be right. I have alot of respect for Jokic and don’t want to see anything like that. Excited for game 5! Go Suns!”
The Suns and Nuggets play Game 5 tonight in Denver with the series tied 2-2.
