October 15, 2020
Duursma (concussion) will play in Friday's preliminary final versus Richmond, Loukas Founten of the Power's official site reports.
There were some concussion concerns with Duursma when he was forced to leave the qualifying final prematurely, but the added week of rest has apparently allotted him enough time to get right. He will remain in an unchanged lineup from the one that dispatched Geelong in the qualifying final.

Taken from field after head knock
FPort Adelaide Power
October 1, 2020
Duursma finished with eight disposals (five kicks, three handballs), three marks and one tackle before being taken from the field during Thursday's 58-42 victory over the Cats.
Duursma was escorted from the field after suffering a serious head knock as the result of a marking contest gone wrong. He lay motionless on the ground for a period of time following the incident but was able to walk off the ground with some assistance. The Power will have two weeks until their next game, giving Duursma a fighting chance to be fit should it only be a concussion.
Scores in loss
FPort Adelaide Power
July 25, 2020
Duursma scored one goal and logged 12 disposals (nine kicks, three handballs) to go with five marks during Saturday's 73-44 loss to Saint Kilda.
Duursma is just beginning to build up some form, but did so in a match when his team underperformed horribly. After scoring three in Round 2, Duursma has the potential to play well, though his production may be more tied to how involved Charlie Dixon is each week.
Included in AFL side
FPort Adelaide Power
July 17, 2020
Duursma (hamstring) will rejoin the lineup for Sunday's match versus Carlton, Loukas Founten of the Power's official site reports.
Duursma posted a solid effort out of the hiatus in Round 2 with three goals, 17 disposals, five marks and three tackles but was unable to follow up the effort next week after suffering a hamstring injury that has left him sidelined the last three rounds. Duursma is listed as an interchange for the contest, so he may not see as much run as others unless the Power put the game away early.
Could return Saturday
FPort Adelaide Power
July 13, 2020
Duursma (hamstring) has resumed training with the Power and could be available Saturday in the team's Round 7 match versus Carlton, Loukas Founten of Port Adelaide's official site reports.
The wingman has yet to suit up for Port Adelaide since straining his hamstring in the Power's Round 3 win over Fremantle. The Power will assess Duursma during their next handful of training sessions before determining his status ahead of Saturday's match.
Facing 3-to-4-week absence
FPort Adelaide Power
June 22, 2020
Duursma was diagnosed with a right hamstring strain after undergoing follow-up scans Monday, Loukas Founten of the Power's official site reports. Port Adelaide expects the wingman to miss 3-to-4 weeks with the injury.
The teenager had already been projected to miss three weeks after picking up the injury in Sunday's win over Fremantle, so his timeline won't be pushed back much further following Monday's diagnosis. He'll miss the team's next three AFL matches, leaving him unavailable until at least Round 6.
