The injury bug has struck the Portland Trail Blazers during Game 2 of their series against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Center Jusuf Nurkic suffered an apparent leg contusion midway through the third quarter and Evan Turner suffered an toe injury shortly after.
Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune detailed the situation:
‘@bosnianbeast27 has returned to the floor with a big ice pack on his left leg. @thekidet also retreated to the locker room.— kerry eggers (@kerryeggers) April 18, 2018
Nurkic later returned to the bench and will return, as several sources have reported, including former Blazers beat writer Mike Richman:
