Trent (illness) contributed 19 points (8-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block across 48 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 136-131 win over the Kings on Wednesday.
Trent was one of three players to play all 48 minutes in the stirring comeback that locked in the No. 3 seed for Portland. The 20-year-old hadn't logged more than seven minutes in any contest this season, so Wednesday's full load was quite the leap. Despite his encouraging showing Wednesday, Trent doesn't appear to be candidate for the first-round playoff rotation.
Trent (illness) will start Wednesday's game against Sacramento, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
Trent will return to the lineup and start Wednesday. The rookie guard's averaging 1.5 points and 0.6 rebounds in 4.5 minutes per game this year.
Trent has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Denver due to illness, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Trent won't be available off the bench due to gastroenteritis. This won't be much of a loss for Portland, seeing as Trent isn't a key piece of the rotation even when healthy.
Trent put up a career-high 39 points (14-25 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and added seven boards, three assists and one block across 35 minutes Friday in the G League Texas Legends' 136-133 win over the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
After seeing limited run in Portland through the first three and a half months of his rookie campaign, Trent has been a revelation since making his G League debut Jan. 21. The 2018 second-round pick out of Duke has either tied or established new season highs in scoring in each of his five games since, an impressive accomplishment considering he scored 24 points in his inaugural appearance. Trent needed the full 60 minutes to extend the streak Friday, as his three-pointer in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter gave the Legends the win.
Trent erupted for a career-high 37 points (13-28 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with five rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes Wednesday in the G League Texas Legends' 135-127 loss to the Long Island Nets.
Since making his G League debut Jan. 21, Trent has been one of the top performers on the circuit. He's topped 30 points on all but one occasion, averaging 32.2 per game on 49.5 percent shooting to go with 5.2 boards 4.8 triples, 2.0 steals and 1.6 assists. The Trail Blazers don't have an open rotation spot for Trent, so the rookie second-round pick will presumably see most of his opportunities in the G League for the rest of the season.
