Trail Blazers FaceTime with Jusuf Nurkic in Chicago

The injured center may be away from the team, but that didn’t keep him out of the locker room entirely.

Jusuf Nurkic’s 2018-19 season ended on Monday with a leg injury that will keep him out of action indefinitely, but his Trail Blazers teammates are carrying him with them anyway. Before their Wednesday night contest with the Chicago Bulls, the Blazers talked with Nurkic via FaceTime in the locker room. Multiple Portland media outlets reported the reunion.

The Blazers beat the Bulls 118-98.
