Jusuf Nurkic (leg) went through a 90-minute workout on Tuesday morning. Nurkic stated back in April that he expected his right leg to be fully healed in 2-3 months, so he has to be pretty close to 100 percent at this point considering he's going through hard, 90-minute workouts. Nurkic was fantastic in his 20 games with the Trail Blazers this past season, flirting with top-40 value behind averages of 15.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals, 1.9 blocks and 3.1 turnovers per game, so he could be in for a huge Year-3 as Portland's unquestioned starting center.

Jusuf Nurkic (leg) has withdrawn from the World Championship pre-qualfication. In a post on Instragram, Nurkic said he's still rehabbing his leg injury. "An assessment by my club's medical team that injuries in this condition require a careful approach and a special work program, in order to be ready to welcome a new season in a few months," Nurkic said (via Google Translate). He should be ready for camp and is a very interesting target in fantasy drafts.

Trail Blazers' GM Neil Olshey said that Jusuf Nurkic (leg), Ed Davis (shoulder) and Allen Crabbe (foot) are all expected to be good to go for training camp. Nurkic's 2016-17 campaign was cut short after he sustained a non-displaced fibular fracture in late-March, but he was pretty fantastic in the 20 games he played for Portland this past season, pumping out averages of 15.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals, 1.9 blocks and 3.1 turnovers per game on 50.8 percent shooting from the field, which was good enough for top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. Nurkic will be in a contract year next season, so he could be in for a monster Year-3.

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.
