Nurkic (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Friday, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Downgraded to doubtful

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Termed questionable for Friday
Nurkic is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Bulls due to right knee soreness.
Nurkic's injury pops up at an unfortunate time, as the big man is coming off of back-to-back 20-point efforts for Portland. He could still take the floor against the Bulls, but it will be worth monitoring his status ahead of the 10 p.m. ET opening tipoff. Drew Eubanks would presumably draw the start if Nurkic can't play.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: All-around outing not enough
Nurkic closed with 23 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 27 minutes during Sunday's 117-102 loss to the Clippers.
Nurkic posted easily his most combined points, rebounds, assists and blocks since returning from a month-long injury absence on March 8. The talented big man has played at least 25 minutes in three straight contests and appears to be on the final stages of any post-injury restrictions. As the Blazers attempt to hang around for a play-in tournament spot, Nurkic should be busy through the team's upcoming three-game week.... See More ... See Less

Nurkic will have his minutes increased during Friday's matchup against the 76ers, Aaron J. Fentress of The Oregonian reports.
Nurkic started and played 17 minutes in his return from a 14-game absence Wednesday against the Celtics, and the center will get more run against a tough matchup in Joel Embiid on Friday. When seeing minutes in the 20s this season, Nurkic has averaged 13.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steals.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Scores five in return
Nurkic (calf) ended Wednesday's 115-93 loss to Boston with five points (2-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 17 minutes.
After missing about five weeks due to a calf injury, Nurkic returned to the starting five Wednesday but saw only limited run, likely due to a combination of caution on the part of the Trail Blazers as well as the blowout nature of the contest. Expect Nurkic's minutes to pick up gradually in the games to come, but even before his shutdown, the veteran center had failed to eclipse 30 minutes in any of his prior nine outings.... See More ...

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Will make his return Wednesday
Nurkic (calf) will return to the floor for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Chris Haynes of Turner Sports reports.
This will be Nurkic's first game back since Feb. 1, so he'll likely be eased back into things, but he's safe to activate in season-long settings. His return will likely result in Drew Eubanks heading back to the second unit, where he'll lose most of his value. Trendon Watford's minutes could also dip.... See More ... See Less

Nurkic isn't guaranteed to retake the floor against the Celtics, but the questionable designation marks a step in the right direction. Drew Eubanks figures to see his role scaled back a bit once Nurkic is cleared to return.... See More ... See Less

Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Won't play in back-to-back
Nurkic (calf) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
Coming out of the All-Star break last week, head coach Chauncey Billups told Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com that Nurkic is "progressing well," but the veteran center still remains without a definitive target date for a return to the court while he recovers from a left calf strain. Given that Tuesday marks the front end of a back-to-back set, Nurkic appears safe to rule out for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, and he probably won't have a realistic chance at suiting up Friday in Atlanta unless he's able to get in some on-court activity Thursday....
