Top Nassir Little News

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: To miss at least a week

    Little (ankle) will miss at least a week as he deals with a sprained left ankle, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Little was held out of Tuesday's win over Detroit, and if this timetable holds up, he'll be set to miss at least three more contests, beginning with Thursday's home matchup against the Spurs. Norman Powell (quad) is currently questionable for that contest, so if both he and Little sit out, the Blazers -- who will be without Damian Lillard (abdomen) for at least 10 days -- could be quite shorthanded on the wing.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Out Tuesday

    Little (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against the Pistons, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Little will miss his first game of the season Tuesday. The backup forward is averaging 8.3 points and 5.3 rebounds across 22.4 minutes per game. Tony Snell, Ben McLemore and Larry Nance will likely all see slightly increased roles Tuesday, as the Blazers will be without both Little and starting small forward Norman Powell.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Strong effort off bench

    Little finished with 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 125-121 loss to the Kings.

    Little finished with a season-high point total Wednesday, converting an efficient seven of 10 field-goal attempts. It's the first time this season that the second-year forward has strung together three straight double-digit scoring efforts. Over the three-game stretch, Little is shooting 65.4 percent from the field, and he has gone 4-for-9 from three-point range.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Scores 13 with two steals

    Little ended Sunday's 124-95 loss to the Nuggets with 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals across 29 minutes.

    The North Carolina product has looked good in each of his last two showings after putting up 13 points, 14 boards and two steals in Friday's win at Houston. He's now played at least 22 minutes in each of the last three games and could eventually challenge Robert Covington, who saw only 19 minutes Sunday, for the starting power forward spot.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Puts up double-double

    Little registered 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 28 minutes during Friday's 104-92 win over the Rockets.

    Little isn't known for being a reliable offensive threat in Portland's scheme, and this was just the third time he scored in double digits all season long. This could easily be classified as his best game of the campaign after putting up season-high marks in both points and rebounds, but it would be a stretch to imagine him putting up these kind of figures on a regular basis going forward, especially if he's coming off the bench.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Solid in starting role

    Little totaled 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocked shots over 32 minutes Monday in a loss to the Clippers.

    With Norman Powell sidelined due to a knee injury, Little stepped into the starting lineup and was one of the more productive Blazers in the ugly loss. Though his performance wasn't earth-shattering, Little finished as one of four Portland players with double-digit scoring and converted over half his shot attempts on a night when the team shot only 38.1 percent from the field collectively. Little also chipped in with a pair of steals and blocked shots on the defensive end, which could help him retain a starting role for however long Powell remains out.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Joins starting five

    Little is starting Monday's game against the Clippers, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Little enters the starting lineup in place of Norman Powell, who is out with a knee injury. Through two games this season, Little has scored 18 total points and collected 10 rebounds along with two assists and a steal in 43 minutes.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Will have minutes restriction

    Little will have a minutes restriction for Wednesday's opener against the Kings, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.

    Little was forced to miss Portland's final two preseason games due to a strained left hamstring, so the Blazers will limit his minutes to start the season. The 21-year-old averaged 4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game last season.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Should be available for opener

    Little (hamstring) is expected to be available for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Kings, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Little missed the Blazers' final two exhibition contests, but he should be available for the regular-season opener. The 21-year-old averaged 13.3 minutes per game last season, but with Tony Snell (foot) likely unavailable Wednesday, Little may see an increased role against the Kings.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Out again

    Little (hamstring) will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Warriors, Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl reports.

    A strained left hamstring will keep Little out of a second straight game as the Blazers finish out their preseason schedule. Consider the North Carolina product day-to-day as Wednesday's season-opener approaches.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Ruled out Wednesday

    Little (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Suns.

    Little was initially listed as available for Wednesday's matchup, but he'll miss a second straight game as he deals with a hamstring strain. Patrick Patterson and Ben McLemore (ankle) should see additional run in his absence.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Not on injury report

    Little (hamstring) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's preseason game against Phoenix.

    A strained hamstring kept Little out of Monday's matchup with the Kings, but the Blazers are showing a clean injury report heading into their second-to-last preseason contest. Little is in line to once again provide depth at both forward spots as he enters his third NBA season.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Inactive Monday

    Little (hamstring sprain) is out for Monday's matchup against the Kings, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Portland exercises rookie option

    The Blazers exercised the fourth-year rookie scale option to retain Little on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Little is about to enter his third year of his rookie deal, but the Blazers have elected to retain him for the entire four years of his contract. The 21-year-old appeared in 48 contests for Portland last year and averaged 4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds across 13.3 minutes per game. This year, he will likely compete with Tony Snell and Larry Nance for backup minutes behind Robert Covington and Norman Powell. The 6-foot-5 forward will be due approximately $4.1 million next year.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Off injury report
