Nurkic has posted 13 points (3-8 FG, 7-9 FT), 14 rebounds, eight assists and one block across 31 minutes in Sunday's 119-109 win over the Wizards.
The bulk of Nurkic's fantasy value still comes in the points, rebounds and blocks he provides, but the center's improvement as a distributor and with his shooting efficiency has helped raise his overall ceiling. The eight dimes were a season high and have propped up his average to a career-best 2.1 per game. Meanwhile, after another credible showing from the charity stripe, Nurkic is at 80 percent for the season, 17 points above his 2017-18 mark.
Nurkic finished with 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, and one block in 23 minutes during Friday's 112-96 loss to the Timberwolves.
Nurkic recorded his third consecutive double-double but offered very little else outside of scoring and rebounding. This was simply not the best night for Nurkic or any of his teammates for that matter, and those who have him on their roster will just have to be happy with the double-double and move on, He will get the night off Saturday before traveling to Washington to face Dwight Howard and the Wizards on Sunday.
Nurkic tallied 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-8 FT), 14 rebounds, four blocks and three steals and one assist across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 126-117 loss to the Lakers.
The block and steal totals were both season highs for Nurkic, who supplemented the strong defensive production with another strong showing from the free-throw line. Nurkic's improvement from the charity stripe has been an early boon to his fantasy value, as the Bosnian big man is currently converting at an 80.6 percent rate for the season, nearly 18 points above his career mark. Even if some slight regression comes with his efficiency from the line and the field -- where he's also converting at a career-best 52.5 percent clip -- Nurkic would remain on track to deliver the best fantasy season of his five-year career.
Nurkic dominated the boards throughout the contest, working around some foul trouble to post his second-highest rebounding figure of the season. The 24-year-old already has a trio of double-doubles over his first six November games, and after a couple of single-digit point tallies in October, he's remained consistent on the scoring front thus far in the current month. Factoring in Sunday's production, Nurkic is averaging an impressive 16.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 blocks over his last six contests.
Nurkic finished with 16 points (4-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in 23 minutes during Thursday's 116-105 victory over the Clippers.
Nurkic fouled out in just 23 minutes Thursday but still managed to come within a single rebound of a double-double. He has now recorded six straight double-digit scoring efforts while also contributing at least 10 rebounds in three of those. After a mini-slump, he appears to be back to what owners had been hoping for when he was drafted. His minutes do fluctuate from game-to-game but he has the ability to produce in limited playing time and so needs to be owned in leagues everywhere.
