Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Likely out for season
Little will likely miss the remainder of the season after he was diagnosed Thursday with a left shoulder labral tear, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The injury was confirmed Thursday after Little underwent an MRI.

His expected absence for the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign should open up more time at forward for CJ Elleby and Tony Snell, while solidifying Norman Powell as a starter on the wing alongside guards CJ McCollum and Anfernee Simons....

Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Scores team-high despite injury
Little provided 20 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 109-107 loss to Minnesota.
Though Norman Powell (personal) returned from an eight-game absence, Little maintained his spot in the starting five at small forward and made a case to stick on the top unit for at least one more game. Little did, however, pick up a left shoulder strain in the third quarter, though he was able to return for four minutes in the final stanza. He put up a few errant shots in the fourth quarter, so the shoulder injury may have played a role in his ineffectiveness.
