Jusuf Nurkic played only 21 minutes in Friday’s win but was able to produce a 10-point, 11-rebound double-double.
Nurkic did well to get his work in quickly tonight, though his warts were on display with three turnovers and two missed freebies on two attempts. Those issues hurt him more than they ding most bigs, but Nurkic has worked his way back into late-round value after wallowing about in the top-200 neighborhood for most of the season’s early segments. He won’t deliver on his ADP but owners will take what they can get down the stretch.
