Jusuf Nurkic filled it up against the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 12 points with nine rebounds, six assists, five blocks and two steals in 32 minutes. That's his sixth game of his career with at least five blocks and three of those have come in his 13 games with the Blazers. Besides the eye-popping stats, Nurkic's screening and passing has been huge and it's a big reason why the Blazers guards aren't missing Mason Plumlee whatsoever. Expect several Nurk Alerts the rest of the season as he continues to flirt with early-round value.

Jusuf Nurkic bounced back vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block in 35 minutes. Nurk started ice cold from the field but he came through when it mattered most tonight. It wasn't an ideal line, with five turnovers and poor shooting (7-of-18 FGs, 2-of-5 FTs), but owners will happily take it after Tuesday's hollow two-point performance.

Jusuf Nurkic hit just 1-of-8 shots for two points, eight rebounds, four turnovers and nothing else in Tuesday's 100-77 loss to the Pelicans. While Nurkic has basically been a beast ever since landing in Portland, he has struggled in two of his last three games. Those two bad games featured 3-of-16 shooting totals, along with nine points and 15 rebounds. But he also had a double-double in between the two bad games and it was less than a week ago that he went off for 28 points, 20 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six blocks. He'll break out of his funk soon.

Jusuf Nurkic had another strong game on Sunday with 12 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and three blocks, making 6-of-9 shots without any FT attempts in 30 minutes. The Suns started Marquese Chriss as a makeshift center and Nurk had his way in the paint tonight, throwing down a few thunderous dunks while roaming the paint unchecked. He's been everything the Blazers could have hoped for when they traded for him, and his fantasy owners have to be delighted.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts said Jusuf Nurkic is making an impact on both sides of the court. "There’s no question he’s had an impact," Stotts said of Nurk Alert. "I don’t want to undersell that. But I do think everybody is playing well off of him. But I think he has infused some energy and a different look. His style of play is obviously different than [Mason Plumlee]. The way he’s been able to integrate with our team on both ends of the court has made a huge difference." Since arriving in Portland, Nurkic is averaging 14.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.6 steals on 54.9 percent shooting. He's been a top-50 player in standard leagues in that span and his owners can look forward to the fact that the Blazers have five games in the next seven days.

Jusuf Nurkic hit 5-of-12 shots and 7-of-8 free throws for 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists and a steal in 25 minutes in Tuesday's tough 126-121 win over the Thunder. Nurkic has been living a dream in Portland and was able to help seal the win with some clutch shots and free throws down the stretch. He was in foul trouble early and it hung over his head throughout the entire game, but in true 'Alert' fashion, Nurk was able to post another solid line for his new team.
