Avoids ACL tear, scans coming
FPort Adelaide Power
April 9, 2021
Duursma departed Thursday's game versus Richmond with a knee injury but has avoided an ACL tear, Jon Ralph of the Herald Sun reports.
Duursma went down following an awkward landing that led to fear the injury could be a major one. While it appears he's escaped the worst-case scenario, it seems likely he's set to miss at least a little time. More information on his status should be forthcoming.
Available for preliminary final

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

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

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.
