Wilcox tallied 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt) and two rebounds during Saturday's 126-122 win over the Hustle.
Saturday's performance was a new season high for Wilcox in the G League this season, passing his previous mark set on Feb. 23 with 13 points. Across seven games played this season, the former Washington guard is averaging 11.3 points and 1.7 rebounds per contest with Santa Cruz.
Wilcox (knee) played 15 minutes off the bench for the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors in their 120-113 loss Tuesday over the Salt Lake City Stars. He finished with 10 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two steals and one rebound.
The appearance marked Wilcox's first action in either the NBA or G League since undergoing surgery on his right knee in October. A two-way player for the Trail Blazers, Wilcox won't be counted on to contribute much for the NBA team once he regains full conditioning. Look for Wilcox's minutes gradually pick up in his subsequent outings for Santa Cruz before potentially rejoining the Trail Blazers as a deep reserve at some point in the second half.
Wilcox (knee) was assigned to the G-League on Tuesday.
Wilcox underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee back in August and has been sidelined ever since while going through the recovery process. He's slated for a rehab sting with the Santa Cruz Warriors, which likely means he'll take part in a few practices while attempting to ramp up his activity. It appears Wilcox is nearing a return, though his eventual ability to take the court will depend on how the knee responds to treatment. That said, Wilcox is a two-way player and likely won't have much a role when healthy.
Wilcox (knee) underwent right knee surgery Monday and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
WIlcox, who signed a two-way contract with Portland in August, missed the preseason with a knee injury. The injury won't affect the Blazers rotation, as Wilcox was expected to spend most of the season in the G-League.
Wilcox (knee) is not listed on the team's injury report in advance of Wednesday's season opener against the Suns, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports.
Though healthy, Wilcox may struggle to find minutes on the wing considering the team's established rotation. C.J. McCollum's absence from the opener due to a suspension could be to Wilcox's benefit, however. Regardless, it seems doubtful he'll see enough run to be fantasy relevant.
