Jusuf Nurkic posted 16 points, three rebounds, a block and a steal in Tuesday’s loss to the Suns.
Nurkic lit the fantasy world on fire last season following his trade to the Blazers. He appears to be in great shape, but the jury is still out on what difference that will make in alleviating concerns around his relatively injury prone career so far. He is going high in drafts, so be aware that you won’t be able to wait long if you are targeting Nurkic. Owners that don’t mind taking a risk could justify drafting him in the early-to-mid rounds on the potential he has flashed.
