Nurkic out for at least a month


Jusuf Nurkic dives back. The Portland center is expected to miss at least a month of competition due to plantar fasciitis. Specifically, the Bosnian suffers from inflammation of the arch of the foot. With the Blazers’ regular season ending on April 10, Nurkic may not return until next season.

It’s a big blow for the Oregon franchise, which has already lost Damian Lillard to injury. 10th in the Western Conference, Chauncey Billups players are still fighting for the play-in. But with McCollum’s trade hinting at a massive rebuild and the injuries, they could fall quickly. It would then be the first time since 2013 that the Blazers have missed the Playoffs.
