Jusuf Nurkic (right knee soreness) has been added to the injury report and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
Nurkic has been absolutely smashing teams of late, so this is unfortunate timing for the Blazers and fantasy owners alike. If Nurk can't go, and Portland might be wise to preserve him for the stretch run, we'd probably see Zach Collins start with Meyers Leonard logging backup minutes. They could also opt to go with smaller lineups, which would open the door for more minutes from Al-Farouq Aminu, Moe Harkless, Jake Layman and Caleb Swanigan. Either way, if Nurkic sits it's going to be good news for Rudy Gobert on the other side of this matchup.
