With 3:14 remaining in the first quarter of Monday's Trail Blazers and Raptors game, Enes Kanter subbed in for Jusuf Nurkic. 

And, Nurkic headed straight to the locker room.  

He looked like he may have been in some pain, but it was hard to tell in the initial moment. Nurkic had not returned to the Blazers’ bench by the start of the second quarter.

The Trail Blazers announced that Nurkic has suffered a left quad contusion and he is questionable to return to game action.  

In his nine minutes of work, Nurkic went 1-of-5 from the field for two points to go along with two rebounds.  


The Trail Blazers were already given up size to the Raptors as Toronto has opened up this game leading by double digits midway through the second quarter.
