    Nurkic provided nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals over 20 minutes during Sunday's 122-116 loss to the Timberwolves in Game 4 of the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

    Nurkic was very inconsistent in the first round against the Timberwolves, which was the case for most of the team, to be fair. Overall, Nurkic had a solid regular season campaign for Phoenix, averaging 10.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 steals. Nurkic will remain under contract for two more seasons.

  • Suns' Jusuf Nurkic: Ruled out Tuesday

    Nurkic (ankle) is out for Tuesday's game against the Clippers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Nurkic was initially listed as questionable due to a right ankle sprain, and the Suns will not risk him with the playoffs right around the corner. However, his loss could be troublesome, as the Suns have gone 1-4 without Nurkic this season. Expect Drew Eubanks to start in his place.

  • Suns' Jusuf Nurkic: Back in action with double-double

    Nurkic supplied 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 FT), 15 rebounds, six assists, one block and three steals over 26 minutes during Friday's 97-87 victory over Minnesota.

    Nurkic returned to the starting lineup to post a solid result after missing Wednesday's game with a calf injury. He faced a stern test against Rudy Gobert but was very effective in containing him to only four points and six rebounds. Surging play from Bol Bol won't be enough to keep Nurkic from continuing his full-time role, and he's a safe bet to see the most time at the five as the Suns make a final playoff push.

  • Suns' Jusuf Nurkic: Iffy due to calf soreness

    Nurkic is questionable for Friday's game against Minnesota with left calf soreness, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    This is a new issue for Nurkic, but the questionable tag suggests that he's day-to-day. If Nurkic is unable to suit up, the Suns could turn to Drew Eubanks and Bol Bol to soak up some frontcourt minutes.
