Jusuf Nurkic said he expects his leg to be fully healed in 2-3 months. Nurkic has plenty of time to get himself ready for the 2017-18 season, and we'll be sure to track his progress every step of the way. The Portland players universally praised Nurkic at their exit interviews for his impressive play as a member of the Trail Blazers, and he could be in a for a big year next season as their full-time starter. Nurkic put in averages of 15.2 points, 7.1 boards, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.9 blocks through 20 games with the Blazers, and he said he'll be working on his 3-point shot this offseason, so he could take another big leap in Year-3.

Jusuf Nurkic (leg) has been ruled out for Monday's Game 4 against the Warriors. Nurkic experienced some soreness in his leg after playing 17 minutes on Saturday, and with Portland falling into a 0-3 hole, there's not much incentive for him to risk suffering a setback with this series pretty much over. Noah Vonleh should be back in the starting lineup on Monday with Meyers Leonard, Moe Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu all spending some minutes at the five-spot.

Jusuf Nurkic returned to the lineup during a loss to the Warriors on Saturday, scoring two points with 11 rebounds, four assists and one block in 17 minutes. He made a big impact in the paint but Nurkic was not quite up to snuff on the conditioning side of things. He didn't have much life in his legs and he wasn't really doing much as a scorer. He'll have a couple days to get in better shape and should be in the 20s for minutes on Monday.

Jusuf Nurkic (leg) will start and play limited minutes in Game 3 against the Warriors on Saturday. He's back. Nurkic went through warmups without an issue and will be out there to kick off his first playoff game. Coach Terry Stotts said Nurkic's minutes will depend on how he's feeling, so he doesn't have a specific cap on his playing time. Moe Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh will lose playing time.

Jusuf Nurkic's status for Game 3 against the Warriors will be determined after he tests leg in pregame work on the court, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. He has gone through some non-contact portion of practice and is doubtful to play. Nurkic has said before he has super strength and he isn't feeling pain, so he does have a chance to play. Plus, the Blazers being in an 0-2 hole may help his chances to be out there. If he is cleared, he'll almost certainly have a minutes cap.

Jusuf Nurkic (leg) has gone through non-contact portions of practice in the past two days. He is still doubtful to play and not going through contact isn't the best sign. Pain tolerance was expected to be the biggest hurdle for Nurkic, so it's possible he can play on Saturday. If he is a go, he'll almost certainly have a minutes cap.
