Jusuf Nurkic had 10 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes during a tough loss on Saturday.
Hassan Whiteside wasn't available today due to a strained left hip, which means Nurkic will continue to play as many minutes as possible. He's been racking up fouls in Orlando at 4.6 per game, and he fouled out tonight, but it hasn't been a big issue with 32.3 minutes per game. He came in averaging the fourth-most DFS points in the re-start, and should be busy in a showdown vs. Joel Embiid on Sunday. Aug 08 3:56 pm (EST)
