Portland’s center injured his ankle last week against Washington.

The Portland Trail Blazers have announced that center Jusuf Nurkic will not play against the Golden State Warriors Monday night. Nurkic suffered an ankle injury in Portland’s loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. X-rays were negative but apparently he is not yet fit for duty. SF Moe Harkless is also questionable.

This is Nurkic’s second consecutive missed game, after Saturday’s game against the Rockets. He will join a long list of injured players for Monday’s game. NBC Sports Northwest was kind enough to collect a full list.

Nurkic is averaging 15.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in 28 minutes for the Trail Blazers this season.
