Nassir Little News
Portland Trail Blazers forward Nassir Little has been one of the biggest standouts during training camp this season. It sounds like Little has been impressing new head coach Chauncey Billups. The organization plans to use a 9-man rotation and eight of the players have already been named. It sounds like Little has a legitimate chance of beating out Tony Snell for the final roster spot. Little could be an interesting late round fantasy option, assuming he's able to secure significant playing time this season.
Portland Trail Blazers forward Nassir Little (back) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Utah Jazz. He exited after five minutes during Monday's game due to back spasms. The Blazers are probably going to let him rest with the playoffs starting next week. Derrick Jones Jr. should see more minutes coming his way, but he still won't be an attractive streaming option.
Portland Trail Blazers point/shooting guard Anfernee Simons and small/power forward Nassir Little have been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Heat as they remain in the league's health and safety protocols. Simons and Little had both been playing key roles as reserves for Portland as of late, with their absence Tuesday forcing the squad to keep their rotation to a tight eight-player group. Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum stand to see an incremental minutes increase without Simons available, while Derrick Jones Jr., Rodney Hood and Gary Trent Jr. all stand to benefit from Little's absence. The next chance that Simons/Little have at returning comes Friday versus Orlando.
Portland Trail Blazers small/power forward Nassir Little (knee) has been given the green light to get back in action on his birthday for Thursday's game versus Philadelphia, but head coach Terry Stotts confirmed that the second-year wing would be facing a minutes restriction. Little's last outing saw him go for a career-high 30 points, but that came with Portland severely short-handed on the wing. While there is room for Little to play his way into fantasy consideration, the combination of his capped minutes limit, along with the return of Derrick Jones Jr., makes Little an avoidable DFS and season-long asset at this stage.
