Although Jusuf Nurkic (leg fracture) participated fully during Wednesday's practice, he remains unlikely to return to game action at least until after the all-star break.
This isn't breaking news, as this timeline has been mentioned before, but it does confirm that the big man still has hurdles to climb before the team is ready to let him suit up for games. Nurkic averaged a double-double with defensive numbers last season and is a name to stash away if you can afford to wait for him.
