Jusuf Nurkic made 6-of-12 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line to finish Saturday with 13 points, eight rebounds, three assists and one turnover.
Nurk was listed as day-to-day heading into this one, but obviously, the ankle injury isn’t serious, as he made the start and played through it. He hasn’t quite lived up to the pre-season hype, but he has found a home in Portland and hasn’t been a total bust either. He should continue to provide owners with solid rebounding and block numbers as the season winds down, and he’s even chipping in a couple of assists per game.
