Jusuf Nurkic left Wednesday’s game late during the fourth quarter of a tight game against the Sixers due to shortness of breath.
That’s better than his knee acting up as long as it’s nothing serious and we don’t get any indication that it was since he is expected to play on Friday against the Lakers. Nurkic was great in limited minutes on Wednesday with two steals and four blocks in just 16 minutes and the only way you’re not adding him is if you’re all set with your bigs. He should be in most lineups on Friday. To sweeten the pot he is staring at another four-game week.
