Baldwin was recalled from the G-League on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Baldwin has yet to play a game for the Blazers this season, but has seen a significant role in the G-League. There, he's averaged 18.2 points, 4.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 steals across 33.8 minutes per game.
Baldwin (thumb) has played seven games in the G-League, averaging 19.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.0 steals across 33.5 minutes.
Baldwin is getting his first action of the season in the G-League, as he's currently on a rehab stint after missing the bulk of the year following October thumb surgery. His solid averages indicate the thumb is doing well and there's a chance he's ultimately recalled and available to make his season debut with the Trail Blazers at some point later this month. That said, Baldwin is at the bottom of the depth chart in the backcourt, so even when he's available for the big club, he won't have any fantasy value.
Baldwin (thumb) was assigned to the G-League on Wednesday.
Baldwin has been working his way back from a thumb surgery that was performed on Oct. 25 to repair an ulnar collateral ligament tear. His original timetable for a return was six weeks, so this most recent update falls in line with when Baldwin was expected to get back on the court. He'll head to the G-League Wednesday and will likely start practicing at some point in the near future, though it's unclear exactly when Baldwin will be cleared for games. That said, Baldwin is on a two-way contract, so he'll remain in the G-League most of the season and shouldn't have much of a fantasy impact with the Trail Blazers, even when at full strength.
Baldwin underwent successful surgery to repair an ulnar collateral ligament tear in his right thumb Wednesday and is expected to miss six weeks.
It's unclear exactly when Baldwin suffered the injury, but he's in store for around a six-week absence, which would put a return at the start of December. Even when at full strength, Baldwin is merely a two-way player and isn't expected to get much playing time with the Blazers this season, so he can be avoided in fantasy leagues. Baldwin will spend most of his time in the G-League once he returns.
Baldwin was surprisingly waived by the Grizzlies during roster cuts, as the team was unable to find a willing trade partner. However, the former 17th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft is still just 21 years old and has some upside left, so the Trail Blazers will bring him in on a two-way deal. Baldwin will be allowed to spend up to 45 days with the Trail Blazers during the upcoming season, while playing in the G-League the rest of the time. Baldwin should provide emergency depth in the backcourt if an injury were to occur to a guy like Damian Lillard or C.J. McCollum, though he won't be fantasy relevant in the majority of leagues.
