    this was the post he replied to
    We could sign a minimum contract big if we moved a couple 3rd stringers though or even Watford, Brown, Johnson or Louzada....not sure that's the trend in the league though because teams seem to be getting younger and faster.....that's why all those bigs are without contracts so far. I'd sign a G leaguer to a two way and stand pat roster wise

    He didn't break anything in 2018... as you can see he missed a total of 10 games that season mostly because of a sore lower back. He broke his wrist in 2021 hacking down to try and get a steal but the gruesome tibia and fibula fracture is the only significant lower body injury he's had. He did miss a few games with knee soreness towards the end of 2021 and then this season we shut him down for something I'm sure he would have played through if we were playing for something.

    Folks need to stop predicting injuries to players....lot of great players had Nurk like injuries...Paul George for one...Antonio McDyess...Grant Hill...on and on. Good thing is Nurk was young enough to fully recover....he looked great last season. given his leg fell off like Paul George's and covid happened and we tanked....his playing record isn't indicative of where he's at now.

    Yes, I was aware of the post he replied to. It was the one I quoted a portion of to isolate the statements which created the confusion.

    If he plays a full season without breaking a bone. At least 62 games this year I’ll apologize to the entire board and admit I’m wrong.
    As it stands Nurk has been an injury waiting to happen.

    Cut Didi and sign Whiteside for the minimum as backup or 3rd string big. We need more length, both might not see the court but I rather to have a vet. big than D league player.

    I think of him as "low mileage" when I think of games he's missed.....he's like a classic car that has been parked a lot so the age is deceiving!

    Luke Babbitt was ,by far, the MVP of that team.
