Nuggets center Jusuf Nurkic could be just three days away from establishing a concrete timeline for his return to game action.
On Thursday, Nurkic goes in for his most anticipated doctor’s appointment of the last six months, one that will decide whether he can be cleared for full contact practice. If and when he’s cleared, Nurkic, who has not played this season after undergoing surgery to repair a partially torn patellar tendon in that left knee, would be on the fast track to making his season debut.

Sources: Clippers, Tyronn Lue Agree to Deal
Ty Lue has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Clippers and Lue’s representative in the contract talks, Andy Miller, completed negotiations on a deal Thursday afternoon, sources said.
The Clippers’ search landed on Lue based upon a confidence that his championship pedigree and playoff successes as a head coach in Cleveland, as well as his strong ability to communicate with players, will resonate within a franchise that underachieved in the 2019-2020 season.
