Injured knee rehab Open link
12/15/2015 2:56 PM
Nurkic will visit his doctor Thursday in the hopes of getting cleared for full-contact practices. If he does get cleared, it would signal a big step in Nurkic's path to playing in games sooner than later, though the Nuggets could still be cautious with him and keep him working exclusively in practices for an indefinite period of time. Nurkic has said he already does everything in practice beside contact work and that he feels good.
