    I just think these guys need and deserve our support right now. They've had a fantastic season and they don't get to take a break as they play tomorrow night.

    If your friend's wife died would you stop talking to them for awhile because it's sad or would you be there for your friend?

    For whatever it's worth, I am still planning to go to a game at the end of the year and I'm excited to go. I'll still watch every game I can, I'll want them to win all of them. My hopes and expectations kind of got kicked in the groin though.

    My friend and my friends wife aren’t there for my entertainment. There is a give and take relationship. Dame and Nurk don’t know that I exist. It doesn’t hurt them if I don’t watch the game on tv.

    They don’t get to take a break because they’re getting paid to do it.

    I hope he recovers well. All good luck to the big guy. Now is the time this team should rally and make a statement, especially the Big men. #27 should be sewed on their uniforms.

    I haven't been on twitter in over a year, but I would like to get the hashtag going #NurkStrong

    Kudos to Nurk for shaking off the questions about his maturity and really focusing on balling like a beast this season.

    All the best for a speedy recovery Jusuf!

    The season is months away and I already miss Nurk. I just had to get that off my chest.

    I feel you bruh. I'm worried about how he's going to play when he does come back. I think most of his fight is going to be mental rather than physical. Paul George had the same problem until he made peace with himself.

    A couple of videos, to lighten the mood:
