X-rays were negative and the big man wasn’t wearing a walking boot but he was walking with a pronounced limp in the locker room after the game. “If it’s up to me, definitely,” Nurkic said when asked if he thought he be able to play in the Blazers’ next game Saturday against the Houston Rockets. “Right now, nah? But I have a still a couple days so we’ll see how it’s going to affect (me) tomorrow and we’ll go from there.” We will go ahead and call him questionable for now as Nurkic has traditionally been a slow healer. Nurk hasn’t been consistent this season, failing to return top-200 value in 9-cat leagues and the Blazers are likely to use a committee approach if he were to miss any time.
