Jusuf Nurkic broke his left tibia and fibula on March 25 and estimates are that he could return to the Trail Blazers in early February.
Hassan Whiteside will get plenty of playing time in Portland with Nurkic sidelined. There is no official timetable, but Nurkic could be back in time to help his team make a push for the playoffs. Team president of basketball operations Neil Olshey says that he has met expectations in his rehab effort.
