Top Anfernee Simons News

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Remains out Monday

    Simons (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers, Jamie Hudson of KOIN 6 News Portland reports.

    Simons will be sidelined for a second straight game as he continues to deal with a right ankle sprain. Dennis Smith should continue to see increased playing time in the Trail Blazers' backcourt.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Won't play Saturday

    Simons (ankle) is out for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Simons sustained a right ankle sprain in Thursday's loss to the Spurs and will miss at least one game as a result. Damian Lillard (abdomen) will also be unavailable, so Dennis Smith and CJ McCollum should see plenty of work in the backcourt.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Sprains ankle Thursday

    Simons won't return to Thursday's game against the Spurs due to a right ankle sprain. He produced zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and one assist in 11 minutes before exiting in the second quarter.

    Making his second straight start in place of Damian Lillard (abdomen), Simons got off to a slow start before rolling his ankle with about nine minutes remaining in the first half. After evaluating Simons for about 10 minutes in the locker room, he was ruled out for the rest of the night. Dennis Smith is the next man up at point guard with Lillard and Simons nursing injuries, and shooting guard CJ McCollum could also see more time on the ball for the rest of the night.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Scores 12 in spot start

    Simons recorded 12 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists and one block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 110-92 victory over the Pistons.

    Simons got the start in place of Damian Lillard (rest), and while he was far from being effective, he still delivered a decent stat line across the board. If Lillard is able to return to action ahead of Thursday's game against the Spurs, Simons would head back to the bench -- thus limiting his upside.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Starting with Lillard out

    Simons will start Tuesday's game against the Pistons, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.

    With Damian Lillard (rest) out, Simons will get the nod. In eight games this season that he's seen at least 24 minutes, he's averaged 16.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Posts season-best 24 points

    Simons produced 24 points (10-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one block over 29 minutes during Monday's 129-107 loss to Utah.

    In a game that saw superstar teammates Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum both fail to reach the 20-point mark, Simons and Jusuf Nurkic tied for the team lead with 24 points. The performance was Simons' highest-scoring effort of the campaign, and he extended his streak of games with multiple three-pointers to three. Simons has come alive offensively of late, averaging 19.0 points and 3.7 three-pointers over that three-game span.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Cleared Friday

    Simons (illness) will be available for Friday's contest against the Warriors, Jamie Hudson of KOIN 6 News Portland reports.

    Simons was considered questionable heading into the night after missing Wednesday's game. Barring any setbacks, look for him to resume his role providing depth in the Trail Blazers' backcourt.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Considered questionable

    Simons (illness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game at Golden State.

    Simons was one of several players around the league who missed Wednesday's game due to an illness, the Blazers will wait to see how he feels Friday before making a call on his status. In his last appearance Tuesday against Denver, Simons posted 14 points, five rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Out Wednesday

    Simons (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.

    Simons is dealing with an upper respiratory illness and he'll be forced to miss Wednesday's game as a result. Dennis Smith figures to be the primary backup to starting point guard Damian Lillard, but Tony Snell could also be in line for an increased role in Portland's backcourt. Simons' next chance to return will come Friday against the Warriors.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Questionable Wednesday

    Simons is reportedly dealing with an upper respiratory illness and is now questionable for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Simons was a late add to the injury report and could potentially miss Wednesday's game if he doesn't feel better closer to the opening tip. If he's forced to sit, more minutes would likely be available for Dennis Smith as the primary backup to Damian Lillard.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Goes for 16 in start

    Simons notched 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 124-95 loss to the Nuggets.

    Starting in place of Damian Lillard (abdomen), Simons had a solid showing despite struggling from beyond the arc. It's unclear if Lillard will miss any additional time, but if he's ruled out for Monday's game against Toronto on the second half of a back-to-back, Simons would likely be in line for another start.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Will start for Lillard

    Simons will start in place of Damian Lillard (abdomen) on Sunday against the Nuggets, Aaron Fentress of The Oregonian reports.

    With Lillard battling tendinopathy in his lower abdomen, Simons will make at least one start in his place at point guard. At this time, it's unclear if Lillard will miss multiple games, so Simons is a player worth monitoring as a potential streamer for Portland's three-game Week 5. After a hot start, Simons has scored fewer than 10 points in three straight games entering Sunday, but he should see a sizable boost in minutes.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Downward trend continues in loss

    Simons had just two points (1-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 119-109 loss to the Suns.

    Simons put up another stinker Wednesday as he was unable to get anything going on the offensive end of the floor. His value comes from scoring alone and so when his shot is falling, he is going to be a huge negative. He will almost certainly turn this around in the near future but given the lack of overall upside, he should not be viewed as anything more than a streaming option.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Scores 16 off bench

    Simons finished Friday's win over the Pacers with 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block.

    The 2018 first-round pick is off to a hot start as the Blazers' first guard off the bench this season, averaging 14.4 points on 52.1 percent shooting, including 45.5 percent from three. He doesn't add much value in non-scoring categories, but Simons is an attractive option for fantasy managers in need of points and threes (2.8 3PM/G).

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Stays hot in loss

    Simons contributed 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes off the bench Monday in the Trail Blazers' 113-103 loss to the 76ers.

    Going by plus-minus and similar advanced metrics, Simons has been the Blazers' top offensive performer thus far. Simons is still just 22 years old and has blossomed into a strong sixth man in his fourth season. He's beginning to creep onto fantasy radars.
