Relocating shower drain - floor joist in way

I need to relocate a shower drain. Unfortunately, the required location is near a floor joist. This joist is running in between two regular spaced (16" oc) joists, and was probably put there for added support for the two bathrooms that are next to each other on this side of the house.

Can I cut into the upper side of this joist to make room for the drain? What about code?
