Jusuf Nurkic fractures leg in Monday's game

Jusuf Nurkic suffered a severe leg injury when he landed after getting fouled grabbing a rebound in the second overtime on Monday against the Nets. He suffered a fractured left leg and will be out the rest of the season.

Fantasy Impact

It is a big blow to the Blazers and will force fantasy owners to scramble for a new big man the last couple of weeks of the season. Enes Kanter figures to be the big winner as he moves into more minutes and fantasy production. Zach Collins should also get some extra run the last couple of weeks.

Jusuf Nurkic has another well-rounded game

Fantasy Impact

Nurkic is a top 50 fantasy player whose salary doesn't always reflect his numbers. He has a nice floor and you can often find him for a discount in daily games. As Portland continues to improve on defense, you can expect his numbers to stay consistent.

Fantasy Impact

Nurkic saw limited minutes as he got into foul trouble early. Still, he is productive enough to warrant a starting stop in most leagues headed into the playoffs. He has the potential for explosive games making him a sneaky tournament play in daily games.
