Casey Holdahl reports Jusuf Nurkic will miss Tuesday's matchup between the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers due to knee soreness. Nurkic recently returned to the Trail Blazers' starting rotation after missing more than two months of action due to a fractured wrist, which he suffered during a 111-87 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Jan. 14.

Appearing in 17 games this season, Nurkic has averaged 22 minutes, averaging 9.4 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Expect Enes Kanter to return to the starting rotation because of the injury. Starting in 32 games this season, Kanter has averaged 30 minutes, putting up 12.0 points, 11.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.

Kanter and the Trail Blazers will face a Clippers team who are eighth in scoring this season, averaging 114.3 points per game. With a 30-19 record, the Trail Blazers are +5500 to win the NBA Championship on FanDuel Sportsbook. They are a six-point road underdog on Tuesday in a matchup with a 227-point total.
