“Physically, I’m good. I had a calf strain recently, which is normal for the injury I had. I’ve been pleased with where my rehab is going. I never doubted I’d be back, but I had to make sure I was 100 percent. I can’t wait for [March 15],” Nurkic said to Yahoo Sports.
Nurkic, 25, hasn’t played a game since he suffered a left tibia compound fracture vs. the Brooklyn Nets on March 25, 2019. The Bosnian center underwent surgery to repair the injury on March 26 and just returned to practices in January.
Before his injury, Nurkic was averaging career-highs 15.6 points, 10.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists.
