Now, Nurkić and the Suns are just two days away from the team’s season opener where he finally gets to play in his first real game with Phoenix. The Suns will play the Warriors and former Sun Chris Paul at Golden State on Tuesday.

Looking back on his time so far with Phoenix, Nurkić said that it’s tough to take anything away from the preseason because not everyone is playing to the best of their abilities, but now Nurkić gets to see the team for real.

Nurkić is more than ready for the season to be underway, as he was seen getting in extra work after practice today.

“I feel like everybody: fans, players, are ready for the season,” Nurkić said.
