Jusuf Nurkic suffered one nasty injury that was incredibly graphic. If you have the stomach to handle it, press the play button and remember we warned you how graphic this is.
Jason Smith and Mike Harmon were the first to react when the injury occurred. The look on the players' faces when this happened was incredibly somber like the spirit in the whole building was completely sucked out of there. Jason called him one of the best young centers in the NBA. Gordon Hayward who suffered an equally awful injury sent out the following tweet to Nukic wishing him a speedy recovery.
According to NBA.com
Per the Blazers, Nurkic "sustained compound fractures to his left tibia and fibula." The injury was described as "season-ending" and they said there is no current timetable for his return.
