The Trail Blazers are back in action in Orlando and Jusuf Nurkic looks like he is ready to pick up where he left off.

The Trail Blazers have arrived in Orlando and glimpses of their practice emerged on Saturday evening. Located in a ballroom on the Disney property, Portland got to work prior to the NBA’s restart.

Jusuf Nurkic, who has yet to take the floor this season, found Damian Lillard streaking to the basket in the clip from today’s practice.

Along with his passing, Nurkic showed off his strength in post. In this clip, he works through a double team to finish over Zach Collins.

On the lighter side, forward Mario Hezonja displayed some slick soccer moves while getting loose at practice. Hezonja’s routine earned praise from the Timbers’ social media team after the video posted.

The Blazers will play in three scrimmages against other teams before resuming the season against the Grizzlies on July 31. You can view Portland’s entire restart schedule by clicking here.
