  • Napier registered 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-5 3Pt), two assists, three steals and one block across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 99-94 win over the Magic. Napier provided an unexpected offensive boost off the bench and became the first reserve in the NBA this season to make five three-pointers when draining all of his attempts. The 26-year-old scoring total was a season high and extended what has been a strong stretch for the backup guard. Wednesday's effort represented his third double-digit scoring effort over the last four games, a span in which he's seen between 15 and 27 minutes in each contest.

  • Napier scored 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with two rebounds in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 98-97 loss to the Grizzlies. Napier had an efficient scoring line Tuesday as he played at least 20 minutes in a game for only the second time this season. Based on his limited playing time and inability to provide production outside of scoring, don't read too much into Tuesday's performance.

  • Napier (hamstring) is not listed on the team's injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Suns, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports. This is certainly a good sign for the Trail Blazers during the team's season opener, as starting shooting guard C.J. McCollum will be absent due to a suspension by the league. As a result, Napier could see more time on the floor than 9.7 minutes per game he saw last season.

  • Napier (hamstring) is questionable for Friday's preseason finale against Maccabi, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports. Napier has missed five straight exhibitions due to a hamstring injury, making Friday his final opportunity to get some run before the regular season. More information should emerge ahead of tipoff, likely following the team's Friday morning shootaround.

  • Napier (hamstring) will sit out Wednesday's preseason matchup against the Suns, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports. With another absence on Wednesday, Napier will have missed five straight exhibition contests and has yet to be given a timetable for a return. His last opportunity to play in the preseason will be Friday against Maccabi Haifa, though he'd likely have to put in a full practice before getting the go ahead to make his return. Once healthy, Napier is expected to backup Damian Lillard at point guard.
