Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic is not expected to return to action until after the All-Star Break, per USA Today.

Per Erik Garcia Gundersen of USA Today, Nurkic will be sidelined for one more month, even though he has returned to practice.

“According to a source familiar with the situation, who spoke to the USA TODAY Sports Media Group on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the matter, Nurkic will be out until after the All-Star break.”

Nurkic has been out of action since March 2019, due to a serious leg injury.
