For the first time since his left leg injury last March, Jusuf Nurkic went through a full practice, per The Athletic. He was already putting in on-court work for the past month, but took it a step further on Wednesday by participating in the team practice without restrictions.

No timetable is officially set for the Bosnian center and his return. “I guess it’s a milestone, but its part of his progression,” said Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts commenting on the progress of his star player.

In his absence, his team is 19-26 for the 2019-20 NBA Regular Season, two wins outside the playoffs spots of the Western Conference. A potential return could certainly boost the Blazers’ postseason bid.
