The Portland Trail Blazers have announced that center Jusuf Nurkic will not play against the Golden State Warriors Monday night. Nurkic suffered an ankle injury in Portland’s loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. X-rays were negative but apparently he is not yet fit for duty. SF Moe Harkless is also questionable.
This is Nurkic’s second consecutive missed game, after Saturday’s game against the Rockets. He will join a long list of injured players for Monday’s game. NBC Sports Northwest was kind enough to collect a full list.
That’s beautiful,” Golden State forward Draymond Green said of the upcoming schedule. “We earned ourself this homestand. We have to continue to allow ourselves some more practice time, which is what I think we need. We’ll continue to get better
Golden State won its last two games of the trip without Curry, thanks in large part to Durant, who totaled 71 points, 21 rebounds, 17 assists and seven blocked shots in the victories at Charlotte and Detroit.
