Jusuf Nurkic returned from an ankle injury on Friday night when the Blazers took on the Magic and ended up with nine points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and three turnovers in the win.
Getting Nurk back was a welcome sight for the Blazers. He only played 25 minutes so it would seem he’s being worked back in slowly. He shot 4-11 on Friday night which has actually been pretty standard for him this season as his field goal percentage has slipped to 45 percent. But it’s nice to see the ankle didn’t hamper his rebounds and blocks.
