Notes 
  After suffering a horrific leg injury in March of 2019, Nurkic didn't get back on the court until the summer of 2020 in the NBA bubble. When he did finally return he was better than ever, averaging 17.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in eight regular-season games. It wasn't much different in the playoffs, where he averaged a double-double in five games against the Lakers. He could be primed for a breakout season with the Blazers in the upcoming season.
