With one week to go until Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic (fibular fracture) is reevaluated, he was able to join his teammates for pregame shootaround at the Moda Center. He seems to be doing alright, according to various members of the Portland media. See for yourself!

If the Trail Blazers are able to secure a playoff spot in his absence, it is beginning to look like Nurkic could be available to play in the post-season.
