Trail Blazers star Jusuf Nurkic is the team’s leader in the frontcourt, and it will be tough for Portland to make a run in the playoffs this season, given that he recently suffered a brutal, season-ending leg injury.
Nurkic was arguably the toughest and most physical player on the roster, and he was also a monster on the glass. He averaged 15.6 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. Not only that, he’s a great two-way player, as a rim protector who challenges shots in the lane.
He’s also a star off the court, dating the beautiful Emina Duric. Check out some photos of the two of them below.
