If you’re wondering how this happens, I have no clue but I know this: That wound will smell like Almonds.
The most interesting part of this compound fracture is Jusuf’s left leg looks like it’s a good 6-8 inches shorter than the right which means the tibia/fibula are somewhere around his knee cap.
Nurkic was taken to the hospital immediately where he underwent surgery and is out for the season (at least). In a relatively meaningless game, Nurkic was having a career night with 32 points 16 rebounds 5 assists and 4 blocks.
Shout out to the Leafs and the Raptors. PLEASE rest everyone that matters. I don’t care if John Tavares had 4 goals last night and nor do I care if the Raptors finish the season behind the Bucks. I have visions of this happening to Kawhi or Matthews when there’s nothing to play for over the next couple of weeks and I hope this serves as a healthy reminder to Babcock and Nurse to take the next two weeks off.
T’s and P’s To Nurkic.
Memories Jorge Garbajossa in 2006. Almonds, baby. Almonds.
