Short-handed Blazers look to bounce back vs. Hawks

The Portland Trail Blazers will again be without their main man in the middle when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.

Jusuf Nurkic is sidelined indefinitely after fracturing his right wrist Thursday in Portland's loss to the Indiana Pacers. The 7-footer sustained the injury when he swiped at the ball as Indiana's Malcolm Brogdon drove toward the hoop.

The injury setback saddened players and coaches alike due to how valiantly Nurkic battled back from a badly broken left leg that occurred in March 2019.
