Jusuf Nurkic appears to have recovered quickly from Monday’s concussion, as he is not on the injury report ahead of Friday’s final preseason contest.
Nurkic is always going to be an injury risk, and even though it’s unfair to pin a concussion on an injury-prone label it just underscores Nurk’s poor luck when it comes to staying healthy. He’s a sound target in the middle-rounds and owners are hoping that he can maintain the momentum he built after the trade deadline last year. Shabazz Napier has also been upgraded to questionable but will only see spot minutes off the bench this season.
