NBA family sends its love for Jusuf Nurkic after ugly leg injury
It’s the kind of injury that turns your stomach.
Portland’s center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a devastating leg injury during the second overtime of Portland’s eventual win over Brooklyn Monday night. A win that clinched a playoff spot for the Trail Blazers, yet their locker room was silent after the game because a guy who is at the heart of why they are headed to the postseason, a guy having a career year, has an injury that is threatening that career.
After it happened, the love poured out from other NBA players.
