Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Undergoes season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic underwent surgery on his left leg Tuesday to repair compound fractures, although he avoided any nerve or muscle damage, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

This is great news for Nurkic, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season but will aim to make a full recovery after steering clear of any nerve damage. A timetable for his return has yet to be released this early in his recovery process, although it's reasonable to believe he could be back on the court at some point during the 2019-20 campaign. Enes Kanter and Zach Collins are expected to split the minutes at center while Nurkic is shut down.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Out indefinitely with fractured leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic was diagnosed with compound fractures to the tibia and fibula of his lower left leg after exiting Monday's 148-144 loss to the Nets in double overtime.

Nurkic put up monstrous numbers (32 points, 16 rebounds, five assists, four blocks and two assists in 34 minutes) prior to departing in the second extra period when he came down awkwardly after leaping for a rebound. The injury looked gruesome in real time, with medical personnel immediately rushing to the court with a stretcher to cart Nurkic to the locker room. The diagnosis thus doesn't come as much of a surprise, and almost certainly spells an end to what had been a breakout season for the 24-year-old center. Nurkic, who has averaged 15.4 points and 10.3 rebounds per game for the campaign, will likely be replaced on the top unit by Enes Kanter.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Suffers serious leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic suffered a serious leg injury in Monday's game against the Nets, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

Deflating news for the Trail Blazers as the big man was taken off the court on a stretcher during the second overtime period of Monday's contest. Look for more updates to come as information is made available, but for now it seems like a season-ending injury for Nurkic.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Solid performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic furnished 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 31 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 117-112 win over the Pistons on Saturday.

Nurkic turned in an efficient, well-balanced effort in the ongoing absence of C.J. McCollum (knee), checking in as the third wheel scoring-wise behind Damian Lillard and Al-Farouq Aminu. The big man did see a five-game double-double streak snapped in the tough matchup down low versus Andre Drummond, but he remains a highly dependable asset at center across all formats. Moreover, with McCollum set to also miss Monday's game versus the Nets, Nurkic could make for an especially rewarding play in daily formats against a Brooklyn squad that just surrendered a 33-point, 20-rebound, six-block effort to the Lakers' JaVale McGee on Friday.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Bangs the boards again in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic generated 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one block across 22 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 126-118 win over the Mavericks on Wednesday.

For a change, Nurkic's abbreviated minutes weren't a result of foul trouble. Instead, it was the Trail Blazers' comfortable lead in the second half that provided him some valuable time off after a highly efficient performance. Nurkic has now churned out five consecutive double-doubles, and he should enjoy a boost in usage to some degree as long as C.J. McCollum (knee) remains out. Notably, Nurkic had put up 21 and 15 shots, respectively, in 30-minute-plus workloads over the prior two games, which consisted of the game McCollum exited early and the two-guard's first absence; his reduced playing time Wednesday was the only factor preventing a recurrence of the same.
