Question about iTunes playlists with ROCK/HDD

I am using a ROCK with an HDD containing my music, attached to the NUC. I’d like to be able to import my iTunes playlists, but my iTunes library (which I keep synched with the HDD on the NUC) is on a NAS. I do this so that Roon doesn’t have to search the NAS, which I have found leads to very slow updates.

I’d like to be able to use my iTunes playlists in Roon. Is there a way to do this with my setup?
