Nikola Jokic won't be suspended for incident with Suns owner

The NBA isn't suspending Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic for Game 5 against the Phoenix Suns.

The league announced Monday that it fined Jokic $25,000 for his slight push of Suns owner Mat Ishbia in Game 4 while trying to retrieve the ball in the crowd, but he'll be available to play Tuesday night in Denver with the series tied 2-2.

Jokic was assessed a technical foul in the second quarter of Game 4 on Sunday night when he tried to snatch the ball from Ishbia, who was sitting courtside, and hit the Suns' owner with an elbow.
