You might check the joist using the Combined bending and axial loading in the NDS.  I would not use the repetitive increase factor  (Cr) and I would use load duration of of 1.0 (Cd).  I would also hang the joist off the nailer at the top of the wall.  I would strap the bottom of the joist to the CMU wall.  Food for thought.
