Trail Blazers' Greg Brown: Assigned to G League
The Trail Blazers assigned Brown to the G League's Ontario Clippers on Thursday.
Brown hasn't had much of a role for Portland early in the year, averaging 1.9 points in 5.9 minutes per game over 15 appearances this season. The Trail Blazers don't have a G League affiliate, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him carve out some playing time with Ontario.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Drew Eubanks: Solid all-around performance
Eubanks notched eight points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two blocks and two steals over 26 minutes during Wednesday's 134-124 victory over Utah.
Eubanks had a strong all-around performance in a game where starter Jusuf Nurkic (calf) exited in the third quarter to injury. Wednesday was just the third time Eubanks played over 25 minutes since the calendar flipped to 2023. He has gone for at least 10 rebounds and two blocks in each instance. If Nurkic misses an extended period of time, Eubanks would have some streaming appeal in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Lights up Jazz with 60 points
Lillard produced 60 points (21-29 FG, 9-15 3Pt, 9-10 FT), seven rebounds, eight assists and three steals over 40 minutes during Wednesday's 134-124 win over the Jazz.
Lillard was unstoppable Wednesday. Through three quarters of play, he had 50 points and was a perfect 9-for-9 from beyond the three-point arc. Wednesday's 60 points is a new season high and marks his fifth career 60-point performance. The Trail Blazers lost Jusuf Nurkic (calf) and Josh Hart (hamstring) to injuries Wednesday, but Lillard was too much for the Jazz to overcome. With the Trail Blazers currently in the 12th seed, Lillard will have to continue to step up if either player misses time.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Exits game with calf issue
Nurkic has been ruled out for the rest of Wednesday's game against the Jazz due to left calf soreness.
Nurkic left the game in the third quarter and will finish the contest with 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 18 minutes. Drew Eubanks is expected to take on an expanded role as the Trail Blazers' top center for the rest of the game. Nurkic's next chance to play will come Saturday against Toronto.... See More ...

Trail Blazers' Josh Hart: Early exit Wendesday
Hart will not return to Wednesday's game against the Jazz due to right hamstring soreness.
Hart left the contest in the first quarter due to the issue and will not return, logging zero points (0-1 FG) two rebounds, one assist and one steal over nine minutes. In his stead, Nassir Little and Keon Johnson will see more action. Hart's next chance to play will come Saturday against the Raptors.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Nursing knee issue
Badji has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Utah due to left knee soreness.
Badji has yet to appear in a game this season for Portland, so his absence shouldn't impact the rotation. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Provides point per minute in win
Simons finished with 26 points (9-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes in Monday's 147-127 win over the Spurs.
Though he saw his fewest minutes since Dec. 16 due to the blowout nature of the contest, Simons still managed to reach the 25-point mark in both ends of the Trail Blazers' back-to-back set after he popped for 31 points on 12-for-20 shooting from the field in Sunday's 121-112 loss to the Lakers. As usual, however, Simons provided little production beyond the points and three-pointers categories, restricting his overall fantasy upside.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Regains three-point stroke in win
Lillard finished Monday's 147-127 win over the Spurs with 37 points (12-19 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 assists, one rebound and one steal in 31 minutes.
A matchup with the 14-33 Spurs was exactly what Lillard needed to get back on track coming off a pair of losses to the 76ers and Lakers in which he went a combined 11-for-38 from the field and 6-for-26 from three-point range. Aside from the poor shooting efforts in those two contests, Lillard has otherwise been magnificent during the past two weeks. In Portland's other seven games during that two-week stretch, Lillard has scored no fewer than 30 points in any contest and has shot no worse than 47.8 percent from the field.... See More ...

Trail Blazers' Jerami Grant: Season-low point output Monday
Grant amassed three points (1-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one block across 28 minutes during Monday's 147-127 victory over the Spurs.
Grant had tallied double digits in every game since Dec. 16, but he couldn't find the bottom of the net Monday, knocking down just one attempt from the field. Even with the subpar effort, Grant is still shooting a career-best 42.7 percent from beyond the arc and has also put forth his best shooting efficiency from the field (48.6 percent) since 2018-19, so this can be viewed as just an off night. Grant has earned a spot in lineups for most leagues thanks primarily to his scoring and three-point abilities, but he's also averaging 1.7 blocks-plus steals and contributes a bit across the board....

Trail Blazers' Shaedon Sharpe: Pops for 19 points Monday
Sharpe amassed 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal over 27 minutes during Monday's 147-127 victory over San Antonio.
Sharpe popped for 19 points in the win, the most he has scored since mid-November. The rookie has had a few promising moments throughout the season, but on the whole, it has been a little disappointing. His lack of peripheral production limits his overall appeal, making him a streaming consideration, at best. He has scored in double digits only three times in the past 10 games, so there are likely more reliable sources of points available, even in competitive formats.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' John Butler: Rare appearance in thumping win
Butler provided no counting stats in one minute during Monday's 147-127 win over the Spurs.
Butler made it onto the court for just the fifth time all season, an impressive feat in itself. He was unable to put the ball in the basket, leaving his career total at just two points. It's always nice to see young guys getting out there, but from a fantasy perspective, we can obviously disregard this news.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Dominates in blowout victory
Nurkic had 25 points (10-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals over 27 minutes during Monday's 147-127 win over the Spurs.
Nurkic was a dominant force in the win, taking advantage of the fact that opposing center Jakob Poeltl was in early foul trouble. The Bosnian big man feasted on the inside while also flashing his playmaking skills, with his seven assists tying a season-high total. It's been an up-and-down past few weeks for Nurkic, with managers riding the waves of some questionable performances, as he's scored eight or fewer points four times in January, including in each of the previous three contests. Fantasy managers will simply have to hope that Monday's strong performance provides a springboard for Nurkic leading into Wednesday's game against the Jazz.... See More ... See Less
