Jusuf Nurkic Will Return When NBA Resumes Play

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic (leg) was expected to make his season debut against the Houston Rockets on March 15. However, the NBA has currently suspended play which means Nurkic will have to wait to take the court. The Blazers were expected to ease him back into action giving him around 15 minutes of play during his first game back. Nurkic will get more time to prepare himself now, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him getting more than 15 minutes when the NBA returns. Hassan Whiteside has been fantastic this season, so it's unlikely that Nurkic takes away many minutes from him. Nurkic could find himself having some fantasy value, but fantasy owners will have to wait and see.

Jusuf Nurkic Will Return Versus Rockets

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic (leg) is set to make his season debut against the Houston Rockets on March 15. He has been doing on-court work and practices over the last few months. He'll be heavily limited since he hasn't played all season, but he should have fantasy value in some formats. Hassan Whiteside could lose some playing time, but it won't be enough to make a significant impact on his value. Nurkic probably won't do enough on the court to warrant owning in standard leagues.

Jusuf Nurkic Remains Without A Timetable

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic (leg, calf) is still without a timetable and it's unclear when or if he'll take the court this season. He returned to practice in late January, but suffered a strained right calf in the process. Nurkic doesn't sound too optimistic about getting on the court anytime soon. There's only 22 games left for Portland, so Nurkic might not have a role in fantasy hoops this season. He's not worth stashing without a timetable, so Hassan Whiteside will continue to hold down the center spot.
