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.
Jusuf Nurkić (right ankle) is OUT, Moe Harkless (left quad) is QUESTIONABLE for Monday’s game vs. Warriors.— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) December 10, 2017
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.
Bear with us for a second, here is the injury report for tomorrow's game: #Blazers list Maurice Harkless as QUESTIONABLE, Jusuf Nurkić is OUT. Warriors say Steph Curry is OUT. Draymond Green is PROBABLE. Zaza Pachulia is DOUBTFUL, Patrick McCaw is QUESTIONABLE. #ripcity— NBC Sports Northwest (@NBCSNorthwest) December 10, 2017
Nurkic is averaging 15.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in 28 minutes for the Trail Blazers this season.
