The Portland Trail Blazers have had a lot of breaking news in the last couple of hours.

The first this morning was the trade between the Toronto Raptors to send Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood for shooting guard Normal Powell.

Now, Blazers fans can look forward to seeing an old familiar face back on the court Friday against the Orlando Magic.

As reported by NBC Sports Blazer insider Dwight Jaynes, center Jusuf Nurkic plans to make his return Friday night.

Nurkic has missed the majority of the season after suffering a right wrist fracture on January 14th.

And as the big man tweeted out he was making his return to the court, Rip City fans went crazy with the news breaking.

Here are some reactions:

 

Nurkic has missed 10 weeks of the season after suffering a right wrist fracture on January 14th. Reports initially suggested he would miss two months.

 

So you can understand the excitement from Portland fans that the Bosnian Beast is officially back!
