The Portland Trail Blazers reported on the 3rd (Korean time) that Yusuf Nurkic (28, 211cm) will be away 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.
Portland, which had a rather sluggish record last January with a record of 6 wins and 9 losses, recently started 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. 메이저사이트
In addition, the center of the backcourt of the Boston Celtics, Marcus Smart (28, 190cm), is recovering from a right ankle injury and is delaying his return to the court. 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.
