Nuggets center Nikola Jokic will reportedly miss several games after suffering a left ankle sprain Thursday night against the Bulls, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 

An MRI from Friday revealed no further damage, Wojnarowski added. 

Jokic was going up for a shot when he appeared to roll his ankle late in the second quarter. 

He was fouled, and he had to shoot his free throws before he could go to the locker room or he could not return to the game later.

As he walked to the locker room with a limp after shooting, he looked to be in a lot of pain.

He reportedly received X-rays, and he was not on the bench when the second half started. 

Jokic had eight points and four assists in the 16 minutes he played. He's averaged 15.5 points, 10.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists for Denver this season.
