  • Ish Wainright: Parts ways with Portland

    The Trail Blazers waived Wainright on Saturday.

    Wainright was cut along with guard Skylar Mays on Saturday, opening up two spots on the 15-man roster. The big man averaged 2.9 points and 1.3 rebounds in 6.6 minutes in his seven appearances for the Trail Blazers this season.

  • Trail Blazers' Ish Wainright: Makes late-game cameo

    Wainright played the final 1:56 of Tuesday's 130-113 win over the Kings, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound.

    After missing extensive time with an MCL sprain, Wainright was cleared to return to game action for Portland in mid-December, but it wasn't until the team's last two contests that he went used off the bench. On both occasions, Wainright checked into the game at the tail end of blowouts. He doesn't appear in line to get a look in head coach Chauncey Billups' rotation anytime soon.

  • Trail Blazers' Ish Wainright: Not listed on injury report

    Wainright (knee) isn't listed on Portland's injury report for Saturday's game against Dallas.

    Wainright suffered a left MCL sprain in mid-November and was sidelined for a few weeks before getting sent to the G League to finalize his rehab. He played 24 minutes during the Rip City Remix's loss to the G League Ignite on Thursday, but given Portland is close to full strength again, Wainright may have difficulty carving out playing time with the NBA squad.

  • Trail Blazers' Ish Wainright: Recalled to NBA

    Portland recalled Wainright (knee) from the G League's Rip City Remix on Friday.

    Wainright was sent to the G League on Monday as part of his rehab process and presumably participated in a few practices this week before playing 24 minutes in Thursday's loss to the G League Ignite. The 29-year-old big man was diagnosed with a left MCL sprain in mid-November and was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, so he's right on track. However, even if he's available for Saturday's matchup versus the Mavericks, Wainright isn't guaranteed playing time now that Portland is close to full strength.

  • Trail Blazers' Ish Wainright: Rehabbing in G League

    The Trail Blazers assigned Wainright (knee) to the G League's Rip City Remix on Monday.

    With the Trail Blazers on the road for Monday's game versus the Clippers, Wainright is presumably joining the G League affiliate to participate in practice as he takes the next step forward in his recovery from a left MCL sprain. The injury has kept Wainright sidelined since Nov. 15, but the 29-year-old big man could soon be ready for game action once he gets a few practices under his belt. Once Wainright is deemed fully healthy, however, he may not have a regular spot in coach Chauncey Billups' rotation.

  • Trail Blazers' Ish Wainright: Set for prolonged absence

    Wainright (knee) has been diagnosed with a left MCL sprain and will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Wainright has logged just six minutes for Portland after being acquired from Phoenix alongside Deandre Ayton and Toumani Camara. Wainright is set to miss the Trail Blazers' next 10 games, at minimum, which could yield extra minutes on the active roster for Kris Murray.

  • Trail Blazers' Ish Wainright: Scooped up by Portland

    The Trail Blazers claimed Wainright (calf) off waivers from the Suns on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Wainwright was cut loose by the Suns on Thursday, but he drew interest from a Portland club lacking in much established frontcourt depth beyond Deandre Ayton, Robert Williams and Jerami Grant. Though he would have been on the outside looking in for a rotation spot in Phoenix, Wainright could settle into a light role on the Trail Blazers' second unit.
