  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Has struggles Friday

    Lillard had 16 points (5-18 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, and five assists in 36 minutes during Friday's 112-96 loss to Minnesota.

    Lillard could not get anything going on the offensive end Friday, hitting just 5-of-18 shot attempts. He has alternated good and bad performances over the past two weeks despite the Trail Blazers still sitting at 10-and-5 for the season. The Trail Blazers will face the Wizards on Sunday and Lillard will look to bounce back against the struggling John Wall.

  • Trail Blazers' Evan Turner: Fails to score in 21 minutes Friday

    Turner produced just four assists, two steals, and one rebound in 21 minutes during Friday's 112-96 loss to Minnesota.

    Turner missed all three of his field-goal attempts Friday, struggling mightily in the loss. He continues to get some nice assist numbers but has now failed to score in double-digits in his last four games. Despite Turner going through a hot streak earlier in the season, he remains a deep league option at this stage, or potentially a standard league streamer at best.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Has double-double in loss Friday

    Nurkic finished with 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, and one block in 23 minutes during Friday's 112-96 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Nurkic recorded his third consecutive double-double but offered very little else outside of scoring and rebounding. This was simply not the best night for Nurkic or any of his teammates for that matter, and those who have him on their roster will just have to be happy with the double-double and move on, He will get the night off Saturday before traveling to Washington to face Dwight Howard and the Wizards on Sunday.

  • Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Out again Friday

    Harkless (knee) won't play Friday against the Timberwolves, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Harkless is set to miss his tenth straight contest due to a knee injury. He'll continue to be monitored from day-to-day with his next chance to suit up coming Sunday in Washington.

  • Trail Blazers' Seth Curry: Won't play Friday

    Curry (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's matchup against Minnesota, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Curry has been day-to-day with a lingering knee injury suffered during Wednesday's tilt, and although his MRI results came back negative, he'll be sidelined for at least Friday's contest. Evan Turner and Wade Baldwin could be in line for more minutes as a result. Curry's next chance to take the floor will come Sunday against Washington.

  • Trail Blazers' Seth Curry: Day-to-day with knee injury

    Curry's MRI results on his injured right knee came back nagative and he is considered day-to-day, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Curry left Wednesday's game against the Lakers after banging knees and was unable to return. He should be considered questionable-at-best for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, and should he be held out of the contest, Nik Stauskas would be in line for some extended action off the bench.

  • Trail Blazers' Evan Turner: Stuffs stat sheet on second unit

    Turner managed six points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, six assists and one block across 27 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 126-117 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Turner managed to generate a serviceable final line due to his work on the boards and as a facilitator, but his shooting slump carried over to a second consecutive game. The 30-year-old is just 5-for-17 from the field -- including 0-for-4 from three-point range -- over his last pair of contests, and he' s now posted single-digit scoring tallies in three of his past four contests overall. Irrespective of his current struggles, Turner should nevertheless continue logging a robust allotment of second-unit minutes that typically fall in the mid-20s at minimum, giving him a chance to return to a more consistent level of production on offense.

  • Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Another strong offensive effort in loss

    Aminu produced 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five rebounds and three blocks across 34 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 126-117 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Despite the disappointing team outcome, Aminu generated a third straight strong offensive performance. In fact, the veteran's scoring total served as a season best, and it came on the strength of a new high-water mark of four made threes. The 28-year-old's three swats were also a season high and pushed his November total to six, following seven-game stretch to open the season when he posted just a sole block.

  • Trail Blazers' C.J. McCollum: Eclipses 20 points again in loss

    McCollum tallied 23 points (9-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, one rebound and two steals across 35 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 126-117 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.

    McCollum's efforts were an excellent complement to those of backcourt mate Damian Lillard's, who led the way with a 31-point, 11-assist double-double. The 27-year-old has had a rollercoaster of a month on the scoring front, turning in a trio of sub-20-point efforts, including a season-low eight-point tally. However, McCollum has scored between 23 and 40 points in three of his last four contests, hinting at a return to the level of consistency he typically exhibits.

  • Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Fills up defensive categories

    Nurkic tallied 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-8 FT), 14 rebounds, four blocks and three steals and one assist across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 126-117 loss to the Lakers.

    The block and steal totals were both season highs for Nurkic, who supplemented the strong defensive production with another strong showing from the free-throw line. Nurkic's improvement from the charity stripe has been an early boon to his fantasy value, as the Bosnian big man is currently converting at an 80.6 percent rate for the season, nearly 18 points above his career mark. Even if some slight regression comes with his efficiency from the line and the field -- where he's also converting at a career-best 52.5 percent clip -- Nurkic would remain on track to deliver the best fantasy season of his five-year career.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Shakes off injury to deliver big line

    Lillard (knee) tallied 31 points (8-23 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 12-13 FT), 11 assists, eight rebounds and one block across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 126-117 loss to the Lakers.

    The poor efficiency from the field and downtown notwithstanding, Lillard turned in a stellar all-around performance despite nursing a minor right ankle injury coming into the night. The fact that coach Terry Stotts was comfortable handing Lillard his normal minutes load suggests there shouldn't be much concern about the point guard's health outlook heading into Friday's game in Minnesota. The big outing ended a relative down period for Lillard, who had averaged 18.8 points, 6.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game over the Trail Blazers' prior four contests.

  • Trail Blazers' Seth Curry: Won't return Wednesday

    Curry left Wednesday's game against the Lakers with a right knee injury and will not return, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

    Curry was forced to exit in the first half of Wednesday's game against the Lakers. The severity of his injury is unknown at this time, and more information will likely come out at the conclusion of Wednesday's game. At this time, he should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Set to play Wednesday

    Lillard (knee) said he will play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Lillard has been labeled as probable heading into the night before confirming his availability in a pregame interview. While the Blazers could err on the side of caution and hold Lillard out if he's not quite moving around at 100 percent during warmups, all signs are pointing to him starting and playing his normal minutes Wednesday.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Expected to play Wednesday

    Lillard is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Lillard didn't practice Tuesday due to a right knee injury, but appears to be all good heading into Wednesday's night game. Although this is a good sign, a final decision on Lillard's availability will likely be made closer to tipoff.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Hopeful to play Wednesday

    Lillard didn't practice Tuesday due to a right knee injury and will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports.

    Lillard appeared to suffer a minor knee injury during Sunday's contest, although he managed to play through the issue. He rehabbed his knee for nearly four hours Monday and is optimistic about his chances of taking the court in Portland's upcoming tilt, although a final decision on his availability likely won't come until closer to tipoff.
