The Miami Heat and the Denver Nuggets will square off Monday for the first time since Nikola Jokic mixed it up with Markieff Morris.

Jokic appeared to deliver a cheap shot to Morris during their Nov. 8 matchup. It sparked a skirmish on the floor and led to the brothers of the reigning NBA MVP warning Morris and his twin brother, Marcus, on social media. The tweet was eventually deleted.

“I have nothing to do with that, man. We’re going to play a basketball game,” Haslem said, via the Miami Herald. “That’s over with. I don’t have nothing to do with that. I keep hearing about the Jokic brothers buying tickets to come to the game. They better stay in line and don’t come down there and start trouble. Miami is my city. It’s my city.”

Haslem added: “What the hell you buying tickets for? To come do what? That’s my city. Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing. Come enjoy the game and take your [butts] home. Ain’t nobody messing with your brother. We come to play basketball.”

Markieff Morris hasn’t played since the incident. Jokic has been dealing with an injury too.

It’s possible neither player sees the floor Monday night.
