Jusuf Nurkic collects 13 rebounds in loss to the Nuggets

Jusuf Nurkic totaled seven points (2-8 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), thirteen rebounds, one assist, and one block in the Trailblazers' 128-109 loss to the Nuggets on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Nurkic collected 13.0 rebounds in the Trailblazers loss to the Nuggets but put together an overall underwhelming fantasy performance when compared to his previous effort. The big man found himself in foul trouble eventually fouling out, which contributed to the inefficiencies the Trailblazers experienced in this one. Nurkic is popular given his upside, price-point, and role, but he could be more of a risk to your lineup, especially if the true level of his upside for this series is all smoke and mirrors. He will look to turn things around in Game 3.

Fantasy Impact

Nurkic double-doubled in the Trailblazers’ win over the Nuggets, as he scored 16.0 points and collected 12.0 rebounds. He has a tall order going up against MVP Finalist Nikola Jokic. Still, He should be able to pull together friendly value efforts to help support the efficiency of your DFS lineups, as evident by his first go against the Nuggets. He is certainly worth considering for your roster, given his upside, opportunity, and price point.
