Nurkic is recovering from surgeries to repair compact fractures in both his left tibula and fibula. It is unknown as to when he will return to action.
The Blazers have been a great bet at home over the past few seasons.
They are 31-15 ATS in their last 46 home games. And this is a pretty
low number here against a Hornets team that is just 1-5 ATS in their
last six road games.
Damian Lillard (elbow) being listed as questionable is somewhat
worrisome, but this is a great spot for the Blazers. They are 17-7 at
home while the Hornets are just 5-13 on the road.
