Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Overcomes litany of injuries Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic (calf, back, oblique) managed 17 points (7-14 FG, 3-6 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 123-117 win over the Warriors.

Nurkic toughed out multiple ailments to bounce back from a pair of rough outings in the prior two games. The fourth-year big man's level of involvement on the offensive end was encouraging, considering that teammates Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum put up a combined 51 shot attempts. Nurkic has generally rewarded fantasy owners this season with strong scoring and rebounding numbers, but his occasional unexpected downturns in production are something they undoubtedly hope to see less of following the All-Star break.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic (calf, back, oblique) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Joe Freeman of the Oregonian reports.

Nurkic is dealing with a plethora of injuries heading into Wednesday's contest, but felt healthy enough following pregame warmups to give it a go. The big man himself indicated he didn't think any of the three injuries were long-term issues and if he finishes Wednesday's contest without any sort of aggravation, he'll have another week off during the All-Star break to get back to full strength. Look for Nurkic to take on his typical spot in the starting lineup at center, though he may be someone to avoid for DFS purposes considering the injury risk.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Likely to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic will most likely play Wednesday against the Warriors as he deals with lower back soreness, a right calf strain, and a right oblique strain, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

Nurkic was unable to finish Sunday's game against the Jazz, leaving in the first half, however according to coach Terry Stotts, he will "most likely" play on Wednesday. While it's not clear whether or not he will play, his coach's confidence indicates that things are trending in the right direction for Nurkic. More information should come out closer to tip-off, as he will be a game-time decision.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Questionable with three injuries Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurkic -- who is nursing lower back soreness, a right calf strain and a right oblique strain -- is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Warriors, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Nurkic exited Sunday's 115-96 loss to the Jazz due to lower back soreness after just 14 minutes of playing time, though it appears he picked up some other injuries along the way as well. More word on his status should arrive following Wednesday's morning shootaround. If he's held out of the contest, Ed Davis and Zach Collins would be in line for increased run.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: No update on condition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts didn't have an update Monday regarding the condition of Nurkic, who exited Sunday's 115-96 loss to the Jazz early with lower-back soreness, NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Nurkic played 14 minutes and finished with zero points (0-4 FG), three rebounds, two assists and one block before departing in the second half. Per Joe Freeman of The Oregonian, Nurkic was also nursing pain in his right hip upon exiting the contest, but Stotts suggested that team trainers relayed the center is only dealing with the lower-back injury at this juncture. With the All-Star break around the corner, the Trail Blazers could exercise caution and hold Nurkic out Wednesday against the Warriors if he's not fully healthy by then.
