Jokic will miss his second consecutive game since entering the protocols. Aaron Gordon also will be out a second straight game with a non-COVID-19 illness.
The Nuggets are playing the first of consecutive games in Dallas, with Mavericks star Luka Doncic returning after missing a loss to lowly Houston for rest on the second night of a back-to-back. The Dallas-Denver rematch is Sunday night.
Murray and Bones Hyland, who had just returned from COVID-19 protocols, led the Nuggets with 21 points apiece in a 106-103 home loss to the New York Knicks on Wednesday.
Jokic, Murray and Gordon weren't with the team during the morning shootaround Friday.
