According to Marc Stein, it seems very likely that Jusuf Nurkic will be moved between now and the trade deadline.
Nurkic started off this year on many sleeper/breakout lists, but has not been given the opportunity due to the Nuggets stacked frontcourt. Stein says that the Nuggets have acknowledged that the Nikola Jokic and Nurkic pairing is not clicking and they are looking to trade Nurkic to a team that would give him the chance he deserves. There is no indication as to which team might trade for him, but he would be worth an immediate add in standard leagues if he does find such a home. While on the Nuggets, Nurkic would need a Jokic or Faried injury to warrant a pickup.
