Top Trail Blazers News

  • Trail Blazers' Hassan Whiteside: Out Sunday

    Whiteside (hip) will not play in Sunday's contest against the 76ers, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.

    After missing Saturday's loss to the Clippers, Whiteside will be forced to sit out of a second consecutive contest. As the big man was previously listed as doubtful, it does not come as much of a surprise that he will not participate in Sunday's contest. Whiteside's next opportunity to return to the floor will come on Tuesday against the Mavericks.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Records 13 boards, nine dimes

    Nurkic posted 10 points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 13 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 loss to the Clippers.

    Nurkic's passing helped make up for his lack of scoring Saturday. His nine dimes were one short of tying his career high, which was set last season. Even with that being the case, Saturday's effort was Nurkic's worst of the bubble. He came into the game averaging 22.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.0 blocks and 1.5 steals.

  • Trail Blazers' Carmelo Anthony: Posts 21 points in loss

    Anthony recorded 21 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 loss to the Clippers.

    Anthony had a strong game, but it wasn't enough to secure the victory over the Clippers. It was his second 20-point performance of the bubble and his 16th 20-point performance of the campaign.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Trent: Continues to thrive Saturday

    Trent recorded 22 points (7-13 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 loss to the Clippers.

    Trent has hit another level in the bubble. Across the Blazers' first five games, he's totaled 103 points while going 28-of-45 from long distance. He's doing what he can, at least on offense, to make up for the absence of Trevor Ariza (personal), who has opted out of the restart.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Struggles with efficiency in loss

    Lillard recorded 22 points (10-23 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 39 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 loss to the Clippers.

    Lillard had a tough time knocking shots down Saturday, though he still launched up enough to rack up 22 points. His passing wasn't great, either, as he had three turnovers to five assists. He'll look to bounce back Sunday against the 76ers as the Blazers continue to fight for the postseason in the highly competitive race for eighth in the Western Conference.

  • Trail Blazers' CJ McCollum: Team-high 29 points in loss

    McCollum recorded 29 points (11-21 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists and four rebounds in 38 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 loss to the Clippers.

    Saturday was one of McCollum's better performances of the season. He led the team with an efficient 29 points and handed the ball over twice compared to eight assists. It was his third performance of the season with at least 29 points and eight dimes. He had no such games last season.

  • Trail Blazers' Hassan Whiteside: Ruled out

    Whiteside (hip) has been downgraded to out for Saturday's contest against the Clippers, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    No surprise here, as Whiteside was originally deemed doubtful. The big man has seen his role significantly reduced since the NBA's restart due to Jusuf Nurkic's return, so his absence figures to have less of an impact than earlier in the season. Still, Zach Collins and Nassir Little could potentially see a few extra minutes in his absence.

  • Trail Blazers' Hassan Whiteside: Unlikely to play Saturday

    Whiteside is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Clippers due to a left hip strain, Jay Allen of Rip City Radio 620 reports.

    Whiteside's role has been reduced significantly since Jusuf Nurkic returned, so his potential absence won't be as bad as it once was. Assuming he's out, more minutes could funnel toward Zach Collins, Nassir Little and other frontcourt options.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Trent: Impresses off bench once again

    Trent delivered 27 points (10-15 FG, 7-10 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes off the bench during Thursday's win over the Nuggets.

    Trent might have come off the bench in this one, but he logged the second-most minutes and finished as Portland's second-highest scorer, trailing only Damian Lillard's 45-point performance. The second-year guard sees plenty of minutes off the bench and that alone makes him a valuable fantasy asset, but he's making the most of his opportunities in the bubble, having scored 16 or more points in all four games (including 20-plus twice) since the restart.

  • Trail Blazers' CJ McCollum: Scores 13 points despite struggles

    McCollum registered 13 points (4-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one block in 40 minutes during Thursday's win over the Nuggets.

    McCollum contributed to the win, but the star shooting guard struggled from the field and couldn't find his rhythm throughout the entire contest. This was his lowest-scoring performance since the restart of the league, but McCollum should continue to retain strong value across all formats due to his defined role as Portland's second-best scoring threat behind Damian Lillard.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Ties franchise record in win

    Lillard notched 45 points (13-21 FG, 11-18 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 12 assists, four rebounds and three steals in 41 minutes during Thursday's win over the Nuggets.

    Lillard's 11 three-pointers tied a franchise record that he himself set back on Jan. 20 against the Warriors, when he threw down 61 points. He "only" scored 45 in this one, but the star point guard is making everything he can to keep the Blazers' playoff chances alive. Through four games in the Orlando bubble, Lillard is averaging 31.3 points and 11.3 assists per contest.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Goes for 22 points in win

    Nurkic registered 22 points (9-20 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's win over the Nuggets.

    Nurkic was one of Portland's best players in this game, but he will be remembered for putting Bol Bol on a poster with a thunderous dunk in the second quarter. The Bosnian big man has thrived since the restart of the league, scoring at least 18 points in each of his four games while averaging 11.0 boards per contest.
