Top Jusuf Nurkic News

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Active Thursday

    Nurkic (thigh) will be active for the Trail Blazers' contest against the Nets on Thursday, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Nurkic was listed as questionable for the Trail Blazers' matchup Tuesday but he ultimately ended up playing and logging 15 minutes. The big man will once again be available but could continue to see limited minutes. Expect Drew Eubanks to see extended minutes if Nurkic faces any setbacks.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Questionable Thursday

    Nurkic (thigh) is questionable for Thursday's game against Brooklyn.

    Nurkic was also tabbed questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, but the center was able to return from a three-game absence and posted nine points and five rebounds in 15 minutes. His status will still be worth monitoring to ensure he's avoided a setback with the thigh issue that previously cost him three games.

    Nurkic supplied nine points (4-9 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes during Tuesday's 117-110 victory over the Spurs.

    Nurkic returned to action Tuesday following a three-game absence due to a thigh injury, but despite drawing the start, the big man played a season-low 15 minutes. He was aggressive during his limited action and should get back to his usual 25-30 minutes per game during Thursday's matchup against Brooklyn.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Deemed probable Wednesday

    Nurkic is considered probable for Wednesday's game against Charlotte because of right adductor soreness.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Posts double-double in loss

    Nurkic finished with 23 points (8-14 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and one steal over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 111-106 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Nurkic was dominant in the first half, posting 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting while corralling six rebounds. He slowed down a bit as a scorer after halftime but finished with his second straight double-double. Nurkic's scoring has been inconsistent this season, but his rebounding hasn't -- he's pulled down at least seven boards in each of Portland's first seven contests and is tied for third in the league with 12.3 rebounds per game.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Prolific production in win

    Nurkic notched 27 points (12-17 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 32 minutes during Friday's 125-111 win over Houston.

    Nurkic put together his best game of the season up against an inexperienced Rockets frontcourt. After a couple of sub-par performances, managers have to be thrilled with the numbers he put up in this one, reminding everyone just what he can do on a basketball court. Unfortunately, the Trail Blazers don't play again until Wednesday, meaning he will have to maintain his momentum away from the court.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Productive despite poor shooting

    Nurkic recorded 13 points (4-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and one block across 35 minutes during Monday's 135-110 victory over the Nuggets.

    Nurkic was more aggressive than usual on offense, putting up a season-high 12 shots. He got only four of those to fall but made up for the poor shooting with a dogged effort on the defensive end, helping to hold reigning MVP Nikola Jokic to just nine points. The big man also dished a season-high six assists and grabbed 12 boards to finish with this third straight double-double. Nurkic's fantasy value is limited by modest scoring and below-average shot-blocking for his position, but he's been a major asset on the boards this season, ranking fifth in the league with 12.3 rebounds per contest.
