Jusuf Nurkic took to Instagram and reflected on the serious leg injury he suffered on March 25 2019.

The center of the Portland Trail Blazers got emotional, as he was forced to remain out of action for almost a year.

“I’m so emotional but can’t believe it’s been a year since my injury. It doesn’t matter how deep you fall what really matters is how high you bounce back. In my life I learn to overcome difficulties but everyone has a fate and own destiny. Faith is trusting God even when you don’t understand His plan.

Once again I want to thank everyone. A year ago you guys did something special for me, it meant the world to me after all I’m 100% healthy and can’t wait to play basketball again. Until then, stay safe and healthy…. Love Nurk,” Nurkic wrote.

Nurkic was scheduled to make his season debut 10 days ago, on March 15, yet the NBA suspended the season for at least 30 days, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
