Per Jason Quick of The Athletic, Hassan Whiteside is unlikely to lose the starting C job when Jusuf Nurkic returns to game action.
It's going to take some time for Nurkic to get up to speed in addition to the team likely being conservative on back-to-backs. The Blazers are trying hard to get the eighth spot in the west, but won't do it at the expense of their long-term big man. Whiteside has put up first-round value on the year and should be safe heading into the stretch run.
