The Trail Blazers and Jusuf Nurkic will not agree on a contract extension prior to Monday's deadline, according to the Oregonian's Mike Richman. Portland reportedly views Nurkic as a long-term building block and he feels the same, saying, "I want to be here, and I'll let my agent handle the other things." That said, the team wants a larger on-court sample size before making a huge financial commitment -- he played just 20 games for the Blazers last year before a fractured fibula shut him down. The lack of an extension could give him extra motivation, and he's a very nice target once the elite centers are gone.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 13 points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes against Haifa Maccabi on Friday. The Blazers rested almost all of their key players, so Nurk Fever was in full effect for his 12 minutes. There's no doubt he'll be a monster on the stat sheet when he's active and his jumper looks great, but the list of injuries makes him tough to target in the early rounds. He's worth it around 50-60 or so, though.

Jusuf Nurkic (head) is not on the injury report for Friday night against Haifa. That's great news for Nurk Alert, but the Blazers may still choose to hold him out of the preseason finale. He suffered a concussion on Monday and did not play on Wednesday. His style of play could lead to more injuries, but maybe Nurkic taking more jumpers can help him avoid contact He'll be a risk-reward target in the early middle rounds.

Jusuf Nurkic suffered a concussion against the Kings on Monday and has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game at Phoenix. Uh oh. This is not the type of Nurk Alert we enjoy sharing, but it further reinforces that he tends to struggle to stay healthy. We don't know how long he'll be out at this point, but you have to think he's questionable for the season opener, at best. Zach Collins, Meyers Leonard and Ed Davis will try to pick up Nurkic's slack while he's out, but that won't be easy to do. Hopefully it won't keep him out for more than a week or so, so we're not going to alter our stance on drafting Nurkic in fantasy right now. He should still have a fine season as long as he's able to bounce back quickly from this setback.

Jusuf Nurkic scored a team-high 16 points on 5-of-13 shooting vs. the Kings on Monday. It was good to see Nurk Alert out there after banging his knee back on Sunday.

Through four preseason games, Nurk has averaged 14.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.3 steals on 48.9 percent shooting in just under 22 minutes per game.
