Jusuf Nurkic is questionable for Monday’s game against the Heat after he came up limping due to a knee injury late in Saturday’s win.
During Michael Malone’s post-game interview on Saturday, he said “Obviously Nurk got hit in the (left) knee, we don’t think it’s anything serious.” This is great news because Nurkic was a beast on Saturday night. “He is a force to be reckoned with,” Malone later said. “I am hoping we can expect a lot more of that moving forward in these last 16 games.”
Seemingly in Malone’s doghouse for the last few weeks, Nurkic seems to be finally given an opportunity to play his way back into the rotation. When given the opportunity, Nurkic has always produced throughout his career. With Joffrey Lauvergne’s status up in the air, Nurkic is definitely worth an add in deeper leagues based on his potential alone.
