Jusuf Nurkic has not yet been cleared for on-court work.
According to GM Neil Olshey, Nurkic should be good to go for training camp. The big man did play a game in the playoff series against the Warriors but it was clear he wasn’t ready. We didn’t really get to see the Nurkic that most folks hoped they’d drafted last year until after the trade to the Blazers where he averaged 19 PTS, 11 REB, 1 STL and 3 BLKS per game. The Bosnian Beast is in a contract year and by all reports excited to start the season so he should be able to turn in mid-round value with upside.
