Damian Lillard News
Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard finished Saturday's blowout win over the Suns with 19 points and eight assists in 24 minutes of action. He pulled down one rebound and registered two turnovers, while shooting 6-or-11 from the field, 2-for-7 from downtown and 5-for-5 at the line. Lillard has been fairly quiet in the first couple of games this season, with C.J. McCollum leading the team in scoring on both occasions, but he should kick into gear soon. Monday provides him a good matchup to shine as Portland faces the Clippers, whose defense has been shaky so far, especially against guards.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (coach's decision) won't suit up for the upcoming preseason matchup against the visiting Sacramento Kings. CJ McCollum will join him, although neither man is hurt or fatigued. Portland has three exhibitions on the schedule throughout the week, so the veteran is expected back in the lineup on Wednesday against the defending Western Conference Champions, the Phoenix Suns. Nonetheless, with Lillard and McCollum out of the mix on Monday, Anfernee Simons, Ben McLemore, Dennis Smith Jr., and Quinn Cook should all see minutes and be considered for GPP DFS lineups.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard has no immediate plans on parting ways with the team. When asked about a potential departure from Rip City, the multi-time All-Star indicated that he isn't leaving before adding "not right now at least." The 31-year-old has been an elite fantasy option throughout his nine seasons of service in the league, most recently finishing the 2020-21 campaign by averaging 28.8 points, 7.5 assists, 4.2 boards, and shooting 39 percent from deep. Nonetheless, regardless of where he is playing when the regular season begins in October, he is expected to remain a top-10 fantasy option in all formats.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (abdomen) has been playing with an injury during the Olympics. Lillard is currently dealing with an abdomen ailment, which will require further testing once he is back in the United States. Although the multi-time All-Star was able to help Team USA secure a gold medal, it is still unsettling news for both Blazers' fans and fantasy managers alike. While the 31-year-old has been in Portland throughout his entire nine-year career, his name has been floating around as a potential trade target over the last few months. He averaged 28.8 points, 7.5 assists, and shot 39.1 percent from deep during the 2020-21 campaign, but if the injury is significant, he will undoubtedly see his fantasy stock plunge moving ahead.
