The Portland Trail Blazers announced today that starting center Jusuf Nurkic will be out at least a month with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

Nurkic averaged 21.5 points and 14 rebounds in Portland’s 4-0 win streak since the trade deadline. The Blazers will elect to rest the big man and give rookie Trendon Watford and new Blazer Drew Eubanks some run.

Jusuf Nurkic could still return before the end of the season. He is free agent this offseason, but the Blazers are looking to resign him.
