Swanigan is questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans due to a right knee injury, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports. Swanigan has been in the G League since late December, playing three games for the Texas Legends. It appears he picked up a knee injury along the way, however, and is questionable to suit up for the Blazers contest Friday. That said, he hasn't appeared in an NBA game since Dec. 30, and is averaging only 8.4 minutes across 16 games. His absence wouldn't change Portland's rotation significantly.
Swanigan was recalled from the G League on Thursday. Swanigan played three games for the Texas Legends, averaging 8.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 block across 22.6 minutes. He hasn't seen more than 10 minutes of NBA run since Nov. 21.
Swanigan was sent to the Texas Legends on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Swanigan has struggled to see much playing time of late, playing in just five of 14 of Portland's contest in December. He'll head to the G League where he'll see more opportunities for minutes.
Swanigan had zero points (0-1 FG) and one assist in six minutes during Friday's 120-90 loss to the Jazz. Swanigan made his 13th appearance of the season, but he has now been held scoreless seven times. He can be left on waivers.
Swanigan is unavailable for Sunday's game against the Spurs due to personal reasons, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports. Swanigan is away with the team to handle a personal matter, and it's unclear when he'll be ready to take the court. His next chance to play will come Tuesday in Dallas.
