Portland Trail Blazers’ big man Jusuf Nurkic will miss at least eight weeks with a fractured wrist.

Fantasy Impact

We knew the wrist injury was going to keep Nurkic out for an extended period of time. With him out, Enes Kanter is likely to start now which gives him a huge boost in fantasy and he’s well worth rostering given what he’s already produced for the Blazers in limited minutes.
