Interpolating within time series

Edited: Stephen23 on 20 Apr 2017
I need to replace NaNs in a long time series that has consecutive (varying lengths) and non-consecutive NaNs. I tried the solution in this link https://au.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/160575-replacing-nan-values-with-average-values-of-the-nearest-numbers but it doesn't seem to work for all my NaNs (not familiar with the bsxfun @(x,y)). Thanks for your help,

See my answer for a simpler solution (just two simple lines of code).
