Analysis: Nurkic started, but was on a minutes restriction and he finished the night playing 25 after missing the last three games with a sprained ankle. It will be interesting to see how many minutes Nurkic gets Saturday at Charlotte on the second of a back-to-back.
Dec. 7 12:47 PM PT1:47 PM MT2:47 PM CT3:47 PM ET20:47 GMT4:47 1:47 PM MST3:47 PM EST0:47 UAE (+1)21:4715:47 ET2:47 PM CTNaN:� - Nurkic (sprained right ankle) will return to start Friday's game in Orlando.
Analysis: Nurkic, Portland's top rebounder and third-leading scorer, had missed the last three contests.

Analysis: Nurkic appeared in considerable discomfort as he walked to the locker room, but the good news is the Blazers have three days off before hitting the court Saturday against Houston. As of now, consider Portland's starting center and third-leading scorer highly questionable for that one.
Dec. 3 9:25 PM PT10:25 PM MT11:25 PM CT12:25 AM ET5:25 GMT13:25 10:25 PM MST12:25 AM EST9:25 UAE06:250:25 ET11:25 PM CTNaN:� - Jusuf Nurkic scored eight points Saturday on 4-of-11 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers fell to the New Orleans Pelicans 123-116.

Analysis: Nurkic stepped up on a night where both Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum didn't shoot well, and he's on a strong five-game run in which he's averaged 19.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and two blocks. Owners can live with his prolonged turnover issues if he keeps putting up those kind of numbers.
