Nurkic (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Warriors, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports.
This will be Nurkic's second straight absence after leaving last Tuesday's loss to the Wizards with the sprained right ankle. There still has been no update on the big man's recovery timetable, so he continue to be considered on a game-by-game basis with his next opportunity to play being Wednesday in Miami. Myers Leonard started at center in Nurkic's absence Saturday, so expect him to start once again against Golden State.
Nurkic (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Rockets, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports.
Nurkic is still feeling the effects of a sprained right ankle he suffered from in Tuesday's loss to the Wizards, and after missing Thursday's practice, it's not too surprising to see the Trail Blazers holding the big man out. In his absence, Ed Davis will likely see extended minutes at center Saturday with Noah Vonleh also potentially seeing an expanded role off the bench.
Nurkic (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.
Nurkic was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Wizards early after landing awkwardly on his right ankle. An X-ray following the game came back clean and it appears he's avoided anything overly serious, though the fact that he didn't practice Thursday likely means he's still dealing with some discomfort. Nurkic will have roughly two days for additional rest and rehabilitation prior to Saturday's tilt with the Rockets, but tentatively consider him questionable ahead of that contest for the time being. Ed Davis, Noah Vonleh and Meyers Leonard would all likely benefit if Nurkic sits out.
An X-ray on Nurkic's right ankle came back negative following Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Joe Freeman of the Oregonian reports.
Nurkic sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's contest, though a subsequent X-ray has cleared him of any sort of break. That said, there's a chance Nurkic ends up having an MRI performed as well on Wednesday, so this is still a situation to monitor moving forward. Consider Nurkic questionable for Saturday's game against the Rockets until more information is provided.
Nurkic suffered a right ankle sprain during Tuesday's game against the Wizards and will not return, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.
Nurkic appeared to land awkwardly on the ankle and limped to the locker room after attempting a free throw. With it being late in the fourth quarter, there's no reason for Nurkic to re-enter the game, so his night is officially over. Prior to leaving, Nurkic posted 15 points (5-12 FG, 5-8 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 29 minutes. Look for Nurkic to have more tests performed following the game to make sure there's nothing more serious at hand.
