Portland had initially listed Jusuf Nurkic (left quad contusion) as questionable for Wednesday's game, while Damian Lillard (right ankle sprain) was probable.

Stotts said pregame that the two would go through warm-ups and be a game-time decision. 

The Blazers just announced that both Lillard and Nurkic are available for Wednesday’s contest in Sacramento.

The Trail Blazers starting center received treatment while the team practiced on Tuesday after he had suffered a left quad contusion in Mondays win over the Raptors.


It will be interesting to see if at any point during the Blazers and Kings game, Coach Stotts will decide to go with their small-ball lineup that they used against Toronto after Nurkic suffered the quad injury and did not return to the game.

Portland and Sacramento tip-off at 7:00p.m. on NBCSNW, the official network of Portland Trail Blazers.
