Mario Hezonja News
Portland Trail Blazers small/power forward Mario Hezonja (ankle) has been ruled out for Sundays game versus the Detroit Pistons. The left ankle sprain has hampered Hezonja for two weeks, paving the way for Trevor Ariza to continue seeing a significant workload on the wing, in addition to Nassir Little getting additional run off the bench. Hezonja would be particularly valuable without Damian Lillard (groin) available for the time being, but his offensive infusion will be sidelined until at least Tuesday against the Celtics.
Portland Trail Blazers forward Mario Hezonja (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. It's the second game of a back-to-back set, so the Blazers will elect to let Hezonja rest up with the All-Star break approaching. Trevor Ariza, Caleb Swanigan, and Gary Trent Jr. should see more playing time with Hezonja sidelined. Ariza and Trent are worth looking at as streaming options or possibly cheap DFS picks for Wednesday's slate.
The Portland Trail Blazers will have both point guard Damian Lillard and small/power forward Mario Hezonja at their disposal for Fridays contest versus the Dallas Mavericks. Lillard picked up a questionable designation earlier in the day due to an illness, while Hezonja has missed the previous two games due to a back ailment. There has been no word of a minutes restriction for either, so owners can feel confident deploying Lillard in traditional fashion, while Hezonja should factor in for his traditional minutes allotment off the bench.
Portland Trail Blazers small/power forward Mario Hezonja has been listed as questionable to play in Wednesdays game versus the Houston Rockets due to a lower back contusion. Injuries have given Hezonja a start and stop campaign this year as he has averaged 16.1 minutes per contest primarily coming off the bench. Carmelo Anthony and Anthony Tolliver would once again likely see an increased workload should Hezonja sit out Wednesday, so owners will want to check back prior to tip-off to confirm his status.
