SALT LAKE CITY, Utah โ€“ After Portland Trail Blazers center Jusef Nurkic suffered a gruesome injury in his teamโ€™s overtime victory over the Brooklyn Nets, several Utah Jazzmen took to Twitter to offer their support.

Even though the Jazz had just won a 33-point decision against the Phoenix Suns on the Monday, several Utah players voiced their concern and best wishes for Nurkic.


Nurkic is a key player for the Blazers, who are competing with the Jazz for homecourt advantage in the NBA Western Conference playoffs. This season, the Bosnian international is averaging a double-double with 15.4 points and 10.3 rebounds per game.

The Trail Blazers are currently 2.5 games ahead of the Jazz for the fourth spot in the Western Conference playoffs.

Be advised, video of the injury is extremely graphic. Due to the gruesome nature of what happened, KSL Sports has decided to not post a video of the incident into this story.
