Jusuf Nurkić (left leg compound fracture) said that he plans to practice with a G League team as a last hurdle before potentially making his debut against the Rockets on Sunday.
Nurkić has been sidelined since injuring his leg in March of 2019. If all goes well with in practice, Nurkić could return on Sunday. He will be limited upon his return so don't expect him to impact standard leagues for at least a week upon his return. It is even possible that the Bosnian big doesn't provide enough value for the fantasy playoffs as he hasn't played a game for almost an entire calendar year. With that being said, he is definitely someone to watch moving forward as he produced 4th round per-game value last season.
