Anfernee Simons News
Portland Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons (ankle) is available ahead of Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Simons will make his return to the court after sitting out of Saturday's game due to a left ankle sprain. He'll immediately slide into the starting five and will push Ashton Hagans to the second unit. The expectation is that Simons will see his full workload during this game. Fantasy managers can feel safe plugging Simons back into their lineups on Tuesday.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons (ankle) has been listed as probable for their Tuesday night game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Fortunately, Simons' ankle injury should only force him to miss one game after he was forced to exit their game on Thursday with an ankle sprain. The 24-year-old has only played 29 out of a possible 52 games so far, so it would have been a big hit if he had to miss extended time again. Ashton Hagans got the start in his place during their last game, so he'll likely head back to the bench and take a big hit to his fantasy value. Simons should regain his normal starting role and is a must-start in all fantasy formats.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons (ankle) was forced to leave the game against the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night with a left ankle sprain. He officially checked out of the game with a little less than half of the third quarter left to go and was deemed questionable to return at the time. He never did return and finished the game with 29 points, five assists, two rebounds, and two turnovers while shooting 9-for-19 from the floor and 4-for-12 from deep. Simons posted the best plus/minus on the team, by far, after the Trail Blazers gave up a 23-point lead. With Simons injury history, combined with the Blazers not competing for much, fantasy managers will want to stay tuned for an update on his ankle because he may miss some more time depending on the severity.
Portland Trail Blazers guards Anfernee Simons (rib) and Scoot Henderson (quad) have both been listed as questionable for the Sunday night matchup against the Chicago Bulls. Simons has only missed one game so far since the turn of the new year, but he did play 40 minutes in back-to-back games and took a combined 47 shot attempts. This could become a rest day for the 24-year-old who has a bit of an injury history in his short career so far. Henderson, on the other hand, is dealing with a left quad contusion and only saw the court for six minutes in their Friday night game. If they're both unable to play, Matisse Thybulle, Jabari Walker, and Justin Minaya will likely see heavy minutes since there are eight players on the injury report.
