Nurkic leaves the team due to injury.
The Portland Trail Blazers reported on the 3rd (Korean time) that Yusuf Nurkic (28, 211cm) will be out for about three weeks due to an injury.
Nurkitch suffered a leg injury two minutes into the game against Memphis on the 2nd and left the court and never returned. According to the Portland team, Nurkitch was diagnosed with a sprained left calf.
The injury forced Nurkic to leave the court for a while. The Portland team has officially announced that they hope to return after the All-Star break.
Nurkitch is a key resource for Portland’s big man team. He recorded 13.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game, and this season, he made an average of 1.0 3-pointers, and also increased his offensive options by installing outside shots. 스포츠토토
Portland, which had a rather sluggish record last January with 6 wins and 9 losses, recently fired a signal of a rebound by winning two games in a row. However, as Nurkitch left the court, he suffered a power leak. Portland is currently in 11th place without a ride with the New Orleans Pelicans in 10th in the West. With Nurkitch out for the time being, the role of backup big man Drew Eubanks (26, 211cm) has become more important.
In addition, Boston Celtics is in a situation where Marcus Smart (28, 190cm), the center of the backcourt, is slow to return to the court due to slow recovery from a right ankle injury. There has been no mention of a specific return schedule yet, and it is predicted that there is a high possibility that he will be absent until the All-Star Break.
Meanwhile, in the game on the 4th, with De’Aaron Pax (25, 190cm) absent due to personal reasons, we had time to take a look at what changes were made to the injured list ahead of the game.
