Analysis: After being held under 10 points in three of his previous four games and going five straight with single-digit boards, Nurkic showed up on this night to register a season high in rebounds and become a factor in all phases. It's still anyone's guess if he'll rise to the occasion in a seemingly favorable matchup Saturday at home against Dallas.

Analysis: Nurkic was getting schooled by Karl-Anthony Towns on the defensive end, which along with the one-sided score resulted in his low minutes count. The inconsistent center continues to be a frustrating player to own. Though he's averaging a solid nine rebounds and shot 50 percent from the field over his last nine games, he's been held to 11 points or less in five of those contests.

Analysis: A perennial fantasy tease, Nurkic appeared set to take off after averaging 17.8 points on 58 percent shooting along with 9.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists over his previous four games. The inconsistent center could be a risky play once more when the Blazers visit New Orleans on Friday, as he's totaled just 20 points and 11 rebounds while shooting 38.9 percent in Portland's two prior meetings with the Pelicans this season.

Nurkic grabbed eight rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +13 in his 23:04 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Analysis: Foul trouble prevented Nurkic from an even bigger night, though this stat line should suffice as the Portland center continues to play very well of late. He's now averaging 15.9 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists over his last seven games.

Analysis: Nurkic recorded his fourth double-double in six games. He had 25 points and eight boards in a win over the Thunder on Nov. 5, and the Blazers are in OKC on Tuesday.

Nurkic grabbed seven rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -11 in his 28:31 on the floor. He added two steals.
Analysis: Nurkic didn't have as many rebounds after averaging 12.7 over his previous three games, but the big man had his way with the Cavs' problematic interior defense to post his highest scoring performance since returning from a sprained ankle in mid-December. Portland next faces the Hawks on Friday, and he'll attempt to atone for a disappointing eight-point, 3-of-11 shooting effort in Atlanta this past Saturday.

Nurkic pulled down 11 rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -7 in his 24:23 on the floor. He added three blocks and one steal.
Analysis: Nurkic's point totals have been all over the map this week, as he produced 21 in Portland's previous contest and had just four in the game before that. The center has been constant in two other areas, however. He's racked up 23 rebounds over the last two games and has struggled to a 10-of-35 performance from the field (28.6 percent) in the past three.
Dec. 29 12:25 AM PT1:25 AM MT2:25 AM CT3:25 AM ET8:25 GMT16:25 1:25 AM MST3:25 AM EST12:25 UAE09:253:25 ET2:25 AM CTNaN:� - Jusuf Nurkic scored 21 points Thursday, going 5 of 13 from the field, as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 114-110. Nurkic grabbed 12 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +10 in his 28:01 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: Possibly fired up over a head-to-head matchup with Joel Embiid on national TV, Nurkic atoned for Saturday's wretched four-point, five-rebound, 2-of-11 shooting performance against the Lakers. The talented center has been quite up-and-down since returning from a sprained ankle, as he had averaged a modest 12 points and 5.8 rebounds over his first six games back from the injury.
Dec. 24 8:33 AM PT9:33 AM MT10:33 AM CT11:33 AM ET16:33 GMT0:33 9:33 AM MST11:33 AM EST20:33 UAE17:3311:33 ET10:33 AM CTNaN:� - Jusuf Nurkic scored four points Saturday on 2-of-11 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers topped the Los Angeles Lakers 95-92.

Nurkic pulled down seven rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -8 in his 28:00 on the floor. He added three blocks.
Analysis: Nurkic did a lot of damage despite still on a minutes count in his third game back from a sprained ankle that sidelined him three games. With this strong outing a good sign that the injury is no longer an issue, the Bosnian center should be counted on to produce numbers like the 15.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and two blocks he's averaged over his last 12 contests.

Nurkic pulled down 11 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 24:35 of playing time. He added two blocks.
Analysis: Nurkic started, but was on a minutes restriction and he finished the night playing 25 after missing the last three games with a sprained ankle. It will be interesting to see how many minutes Nurkic gets Saturday at Charlotte on the second of a back-to-back.
Dec. 7 12:47 PM PT1:47 PM MT2:47 PM CT3:47 PM ET20:47 GMT4:47 1:47 PM MST3:47 PM EST0:47 UAE (+1)21:4715:47 ET2:47 PM CTNaN:� - Nurkic (sprained right ankle) will return to start Friday's game in Orlando.
Analysis: Nurkic, Portland's top rebounder and third-leading scorer, had missed the last three contests.
Dec. 6 9:26 PM PT10:26 PM MT11:26 PM CT12:26 AM ET5:26 GMT13:26 10:26 PM MST12:26 AM EST9:26 UAE06:260:26 ET11:26 PM CTNaN:� - Jusuf Nurkic scored 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting before leaving Tuesday's 106-92 loss to the Wizards in the fourth quarter with a right ankle injury. Nurkic grabbed nine rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 28:35 of playing time. He added three blocks.
Analysis: Nurkic appeared in considerable discomfort as he walked to the locker room, but the good news is the Blazers have three days off before hitting the court Saturday against Houston. As of now, consider Portland's starting center and third-leading scorer highly questionable for that one.
Dec. 3 9:25 PM PT10:25 PM MT11:25 PM CT12:25 AM ET5:25 GMT13:25 10:25 PM MST12:25 AM EST9:25 UAE06:250:25 ET11:25 PM CTNaN:� - Jusuf Nurkic scored eight points Saturday on 4-of-11 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers fell to the New Orleans Pelicans 123-116.

Nurkic pulled down 11 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -8 in his 31:40 of playing time. He added one block and three steals.
Analysis: Nurkic stepped up on a night where both Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum didn't shoot well, and he's on a strong five-game run in which he's averaged 19.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and two blocks. Owners can live with his prolonged turnover issues if he keeps putting up those kind of numbers.
Nov. 27 6:43 PM PT7:43 PM MT8:43 PM CT9:43 PM ET2:43 GMT10:43 7:43 PM MST9:43 PM EST6:43 UAE (+1)03:4321:43 ET8:43 PM CTNaN:� - Jusuf Nurkic scored 12 points Monday on 5-of-12 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the New York Knicks 103-91.

Analysis: Hopefully, this is a turn in the right direction for Nurkic, who had been averaging 10.5 points on 37.8 percent shooting in his previous four games.

Nurkic grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 30:11 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Nurkic, who played for the Nuggets for three seasons before he was traded to Portland in February, was energized by facing his former team. He's scored at least 17 points in five of six games after averaging 12.6 through his first seven.

Analysis: Nurkic tied the second-best scoring performance of his career and fell five points shy of his career high. He's scored in double figures in eight of nine games but this was his first 20-point effort. Nurkic had 13 double-doubles last season so his owners would like to see some more of those soon.
