Alexander (knee) is doubtful to play against New Orleans on Wednesday.

The rookie has missed the Trail Blazers' entire preseason and remains uncertain to play in Portland's season opener against New Orleans. The 19-year-old power forward averaged 6.7 rebounds, 0.3 assists, and 1.5 blocks in 22 minutes per game with Brooklyn's summer league team, but if Alexander recovers, he may not see much playing time as five fellow power forwards, Meyers Leonard, Mason Plumlee, Ed Davis, Noah Vonleh, and Al-Farouq Aminu stand ahead of him in the lineup.
