Trail Blazers' Evan Turner: Solid outing in Friday's win
Turner tallied 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and six assists in 22 minutes during Friday's 128-122 victory over Toronto.
Turner was excellent off the bench Friday, helping the Trail Blazers to an impressive victory over Toronto. Turner has been wildly inconsistent this season despite his regular spot in the rotation. He has the ability to put up fringe standard league value but is simply to difficult to trust to warrant a roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Seth Curry: Scores season-high 13 points Friday
Curry totaled 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two assists, and two steals in 18 minutes during Friday's 128-122 victory over Toronto.
Curry dropped a season-high 13 points Friday after being out of the rotation in two of the previous three games. Curry has the ability to score the ball when given the chance but that chance has been basically non-existent this season. He can be ignored in all but the deepest of formats until he can string some solid performances together.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Scores 16 points in impressive win
Collins had 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 21 minutes during Friday's 128-122 victory over the Raptors.
Collins had his highest scoring game since late-October, dropping 16 points in 21 minutes. The Trail Blazers bench was hot down the stretch which gave a number of players some additional playing time. This was just the second time in his last 17 games that Collins has scored in double-figures and so he can be left alone in standard formats.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Has team-high 24 points Friday
Lillard finished with 24 points (8-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during Friday's 128-122 victory over the Raptors.
Lillard attempted just 10 field-goals but his eight of them, including 3-of-3 from beyond the arc, finishing with a team-high 24 points. The Trail Blazers spread the scoring around for this one with the bench popping off for a combined 58 points. Lillard is currently the 13 ranked player across the season which is just about where he was being drafted in standard formats.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Awful shooting in Wednesday's loss
Nurkic had two points (1-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three blocks, two steals, and one assist in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 92-83 loss to the Grizzlies.
Nurkic was downright dreadful offensively, but he salvaged what would've been a miserable statistical performance by providing plenty of boards, steals, and blocks. Marc Gasol is among the top defensive big men in the league and one of the few guys physically capable of going toe-to-toe with Nurkic, who has developed into a dynamite pick-and-roll threat with Damian Lillard....

Trail Blazers' C.J. McCollum: Posts 40 points in Wednesday's loss
McCollum exploded for 40 points (16-27 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 92-83 loss to the Grizzlies.
McCollum matched his season high in scoring while contributing in every category. He isn't known for his defensive abilities, so fantasy owners should be sure to savor the steal, block, and boards. With that being said, he remains one of the top offensive guards in the game, and it's long been clear that Damian Lillard has no problem feeding McCollum when he has the hot hand.... See More ...

Trail Blazers' Jake Layman: Sees 14 minutes in Wednesday's loss
Layman had two points (1-1 FG), four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 92-83 loss to the Grizzlies.
Layman drew the start in place of Maurice Harkless (rest) and posted a decent line, albeit in limited minutes. With that being said, three reserves saw more time than Layman, who earned only the eighth-most minutes on the team. Apart from his 24-point showing in last Thursday's blowout win versus the Suns, Layman hasn't exactly been delivering much in the way of counting stats.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jake Layman: Starting Wednesday
Layman will start Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.
Layman will take the place of Maurice Harkless who's out for rest purposes. Through 22 games this year, Layman is averaging 5.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 15.7 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Out Wednesday
Simons (illness) is out Wednesday against the Grizzlies, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Fighting an upper respiratory infection, Simons will miss a third straight contest. His next chance to take the floor arrives Friday against the Raptors.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Out for rest Wednesday
Harkless is out for rest Wednesday against the Grizzlies, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.
Harkless missed 12 games earlier in the season due to knee soreness, so the Blazers will give him off Wednesday, which is the second half of a back-to-back set. Jake Layman and Evan Turner could see extra run as a result.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' C.J. McCollum: Pours in 22 points Tuesday
McCollum contributed 22 points (10-21 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four assists and three rebounds across 39 minutes in Tuesday's 111-103 loss to the Rockets.
It was a tale of two games for McCollum, who shot extremely well within the arc, but failed to hit one from deep. He'll look to iron out the inconsistencies with his scoring going forward.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Double-doubles Tuesday
Nurkic collected 15 points (3-9 FG, 9-10 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 111-103 loss to the Rockets.
Nurkic continues to be extremely efficient for the Blazers, complementing the team's backcourt players nicely with consistent offensive and defensive production on the interior. His ability to get to the charity stripe only helps his cause, as he is over 75 percent on the year from the line.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Drops team-high 34 points
Lillard tallied 34 points (12-25 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 39 minutes in Tuesday's 111-103 loss to the Rockets.
While Lillard kept the point total inflated Tuesday night, his rebounds and assists fell off from his season averages of 5.2 and 6.4 respectively. He'll look to do more as a teammate to lead his crew to a win next time out.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Double-doubles Tuesday
Aminu totaled 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 15 rebounds and two assists across 37 minutes in Tuesday's 111-103 loss to the Rockets.
Aminu has been anything but consistent on offense, as he has trouble creating points despite being in the starting rotation with ample time to play. After a 15-game stretch of no double-doubles, he now has two in his last four tries and will look to keep it trending up.... See More ... See Less
