Jusuf Nurkic has been ruled out of Game 4 of the first round playoff series between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors, according to Mike Richman of The Oregonian.

The Bosnian big man was restricted for Game 3, tallying 17 minutes in the 113-119 loss. Down 0-3 to the Warriors, it makes a lot of sense to play it safe with a near-300-pound body recovering from a fibular fracture.

Nurkic recorded two points, 11 rebounds, and four assists in his brief post-season performance.

Game 4 tips off at 7:30 p.m. (Pacific) on Monday night.
