Labissiere (knee) will remain out for "weeks," Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
A sprained left knee has kept Labissiere out since Dec. 30, and he's not expected to return in the near future. More information on a timetable may emerge when he hits various milestones in his recovery.
Labissiere (knee), who has been ruled out in advance of Sunday's game against the Knicks, won't travel with the Hawks during the team's two-game road trip this week, Ben Ladner of SI.com reports.
Atlanta will wrap up its pre-All-Star break schedule with games Monday in Orlando and Wednesday in Cleveland, but neither Labissiere nor fellow newly acquired center Clint Capela (heel) will accompany the team as both continue their respective rehab processes. In Labissiere's case, he's been sidelined since late December with a left knee chondral injury and likely won't have a clear target date for his return to game action until he's able to take part in full-contact, full-court practices. The 23-year-old isn't likely to hold a prominent role in the Atlanta rotation once he's eventually healthy.
Labissiere (knee) remains out Sunday against the Knicks, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Labissiere continues to miss time due to a sprained knee. He's been out since Dec. 30 and it's unclear when he may return.
The Trail Blazers dealt Labissiere (knee) to the Hawks on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Portland will also send $2 million to the Hawks in the deal, but it's unclear what or who Atlanta might be sending back in return, if anything. Atlanta has been stockpiling bigs of late, as Labissiere joins recent acquisitions Clint Capela (heel) and Dewayne Dedmon in a frontcourt that already features John Collins and Bruno Fernando (calf). Labissiere hasn't played since the end of December due to a knee injury, but he was scheduled to be re-evaluated this week following a month-long shutdown, so another update on his health should arrive soon. When healthy, Labissiere has posted averages of 5.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 17.1 minutes per game over his 33 appearances this season.
Labissiere was diagnosed with a left knee articular cartilage lesion and will be reevaluated in four weeks.
Labissiere suffered the injury at the end of December; while a first MRI came back inconclusive, a second scan confirmed the issue will keep the big man sidelined into February. In his absence, Anthony Tolliver, Carmelo Anthony, Hassan Whiteside and Nassir Little will help fill the void in Portland's frontcourt.
Labissiere (knee) will remain out for the Blazers' upcoming five-game road trip, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.
Labissiere underwent an MRI on his left knee, but the results were deemed inconclusive. He's set for another evaluation next week, at which point we should get a clearer timetable. For now, though, expect Anthony Tolliver, Carmelo Anthony, Hassan Whiteside and Nassir Little to help fill the void in the frontcourt.
Labissiere underwent an MRI on Saturday night but the results are pending according to head coach Terry Stotts, Trailblazers beat reporter Casey Holdahl reports.
There won't be much to dissect of Labissiere's status until Sunday's practice. He exited Saturday's loss to the Lakers only five minutes into the contest, it was his first start of the season. Should he miss extended time, look for Kent Bazemore and Anthony Tolliver to each see more action.
Labissiere (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's contest against the Lakers.
Less than five minutes into his first start of the season, Labissiere was headed to the locker room with a left knee injury. Look for Kent Bazemore to see an uptick in minutes as a result. More specifics on Labissiere's injury will come ahead of Monday's showdown with the Suns.
Labissiere is headed to the locker room Saturday, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
Labissiere was reaching for his left knee/leg as he made his way to the locker room. The 23-year-old was making his first start of the season but now Kent Bazemore, part of the conventional starting rotation, will return to the lineup.
Labissiere is starting Saturday against the Lakers, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.
With Kent Bazemore coming off the bench Saturday, Labissiere will get his first start of the season. When seeing at least 20 minutes this season, Labissiere is averaging 9.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.5 blocks.
Labissiere produced six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), a rebound and a block in a 136-113 defeat to the Lakers on Friday night.
The 23-year-old took advantage of every opportunity shooting from inside the arc but had trouble obtaining rebounds, the category that mainly defines his value in deeper leagues. Labissiere is still grabbing five boards a night (in 16.6 minutes averaged) but will only have stable worth by preventing nights like these.
Labissiere amassed 22 points (10-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 12 rebounds, five blocks, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Thursday's 137-129 loss to Milwaukee.
Labissiere played 28 minutes off the bench, coming through with his best game of the season. Anthony Tolliver moved into the starting lineup, replacing the injured Hassan Whiteside (hip) but it was Labissiere who took advantage. If Whiteside is forced to miss additional time, Labissiere could be worth a speculative pickup in standard leagues. Labissiere has likely done enough to earn himself meaningful minutes on most nights even when Whiteside eventually returns.
Labissiere totaled 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 20 minutes off the bench Monday in the Trail Blazers' 132-108 loss to the Rockets.
The Rockets held a 23-point lead entering the final quarter, so Portland coach Terry Stotts opted to give starting center Hassan Whiteside some more rest late in the contest. As a result, Labissiere was able to pick more playing than usual and capitalized on the extra opportunities. So long as Whiteside remains healthy and the Blazers are consistently competitive, however, Labissiere will likely see his minutes stick in the teens more often than not.
Labissiere (ankle) finished with one point (0-3 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block in 17 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Trail Blazers' 124-113 win over the Hawks in overtime.
A game-time decision leading up to opening tip, Labissiere (ankle) ultimately gained clearance to play and handled a normal minutes load. Labissiere should be locked in as the team's top backup center at least until Pau Gasol (foot) returns, but the 23-year-old won't offer much fantasy upside so long as starter Hassan Whiteside remains healthy and effective.
Labissiere (ankle) has been cleared to play Sunday against the Hawks, Case Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.
Labissiere was initially listed as questionable, and the Blazers then moved him to a game-time call. But after going through a pregame workout, Labissiere will be available off the bench, and he could continue to see increased minutes in the absence of Zach Collins (shoulder).
Labissiere (ankle) will be a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Hawks, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.
Labissiere sprained his ankle Friday night, and the Blazers will wait until closer to tip to make a final call on his status. The good news for Portland is that Hassan Whiteside (foot) will be available after he, too, was initially listed as questionable.
Labissiere (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.
Labissiere suffered an ankle sprain Friday, and it's still giving him some discomfort. If he's ruled out, Anthony Tolliver and Mario Hezonja could see extra run.
Labissiere will not return to Friday's game against the Nets due to a sprained right ankle, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
Labissiere recorded two points and one rebound across nine minutes before exiting the contest. He also racked up five fouls in that timeframe. His status for Sunday's game against the Hawks is uncertain at this time.
Labissiere tallied 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes during Saturday's 129-128 loss to Philadelphia.
Labissiere outplayed Anthony Tolliver once again Saturday, scoring 15 points off the bench. He is putting together a nice little string of performances, capitalizing on the extended absence of Zach Collins (shoulder). With Collins likely to miss multiple games, Labissiere is someone to consider if you are in a deeper format.
Labissiere posted seven points (2-5 FG, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in Wednesday's 102-99 win against the Thunder.
Labissiere has received more playing time due to Zach Collins' (shoulder) injury. Though Collins isn't expected to miss much time, Labissiere has played well in his absence averaging 8.5 points, five rebounds, 1.5 blocks, 0.5 assists, and 0.5 steals per game in the two games Collins has been out. Recent play could help the 23-year-old take away minutes from Anthony Tolliver, who is connecting on just 23.1 percent of his field goals to start the season.
