NBA: Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic out indefinitely after broken wrist

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic will be out indefinitely after suffering a broken wrist injury Thursday in their game against the Indiana Pacers.

Nurkic attempted a swipe in the 3rd quarter of the game, and held onto his right wrist after. He also fell down after contesting a shot around the rim.

The 7-0 Bosnian center immediately went to the locker room and never returned. The Pacers won, 111-87.

Nurkic’s teammate Damian Lillard was quick to voice out his frustration over what happened.

Their big man missed a lot of games last season due to a broken leg before returning in the bubble to help the Blazers make the playoffs.

The Blazers are currently 6th with a 7-5 record in the Western Conference.
