Jusuf Nurkic Suffers Gruesome Injury Against Nets

Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a gruesome leg injury Monday night against the Nets, that required him to be carried off the floor in a stretcher.

The injury occurred in the second overtime of the game, when Nurkic missed a putback attempt off a Moe Harkless miss and came down awkwardly, resulting in his left leg appearing to break in horrific fashion.

Here is video of the injury, but a WARNING that it is very graphic.

There is no word on the specifics of the injury, but Nurkic was taken to a local hospital once he was stretchered off.

The Blazers did win and clinch a playoff spot, but it seems like for the second year in a row, they will be without their big man in the postseason.

Prayers to Nurkic for a full recovery soon.
