Jusuf Nurkic announced at a press conference this morning that he will not play in the second game of the Portland Trail Blazers’ playoff series against the Golden State Warriors.

Nurkic has been out since the end of March with a right fibula fracture. The Blazers originally announced that Nurkic would miss two weeks and then be re-evaluated. He has been seen warming up and shooting around with the team, but no timetable for a return has been announced.
