  • Trail Blazers' Toumani Camara: Records double-double Tuesday

    Camara totaled 17 points (6-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes before fouling out of Tuesday's 106-96 loss to Miami.

    Camara's point total was third highest on the Blazers and the second highest of his career, trailing just his 18-point performance versus Utah on Dec. 14. The rookie also grabbed 10 boards to record his second double-double of the campaign. This was a very strong bounce-back effort for Camara after he averaged just 3.0 points on 27.3 percent shooting over his previous two games.

  • Trail Blazers' Jerami Grant: Posts well-rounded line in loss

    Grant registered 24 points (7-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 106-96 loss to the Heat.

    Grant finished two points behind Anfernee Simons for the team scoring lead Tuesday despite taking 11 fewer shots. Grant also led the Blazers in assists and steals, with his three thefts falling one short of his season-high mark. The veteran forward has somewhat quietly put up 20-plus points in seven of his past 10 contests, averaging 23.8 points during that stretch.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Pours in 26 points in loss

    Simons finished with 26 points (10-26 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and four assists in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 106-96 loss to the Heat.

    Simons unsurprisingly worked as the focal point on offense for Portland on Tuesday, taking 11 more shots than any other player on the team. However, he wasn't very efficient with those attempts, though he was able to shoot a respectable 4-for-11 from three-point range. Simons should continue to get ample opportunity to hoist up shots, which makes him a viable source of scoring for fantasy managers who are willing to stomach his 42.5 percent field-goal rate on the campaign.

  • Trail Blazers' Deandre Ayton: Won't return against Miami

    Ayton (hand) is out for the remainder of Tuesday's game versus the Heat. He will end the game with 12 points (6-9 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 19 minutes

    Ayton had a dominant first half, posting a double-double before exiting due to a hand he suffered after a hard fall following a Kevin Love charge. Duop Reath will likely receive increased minutes in his absence. With X-Rays on Ayton's hand coming back negative, his next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Memphis.

  • Trail Blazers' Deandre Ayton: Questionable to return Tuesday

    Ayton is questionable to return to Tuesday's game versus the Heat due to a right hand sprain.

    Ayton began the second half in the locker room, with Duop Reath starting in his absence. Ayton likely suffered his injury after falling hard on his hand following a charge attempt by Kevin Love. While the 25-year-old big man returned to action shortly after, it appears that he is still dealing with the pain.

  • Trail Blazers' Rayan Rupert: Available to play

    Rupert (ankle) is available for Tuesday's game versus Miami.

    Rupert has yet to see the floor in February, and he's been held to single-digit minutes in his last three appearances.

  • Trail Blazers' Scoot Henderson: Will miss next three games

    Coach Chauncey Billups said Tuesday that Henderson (adductor) won't play in Portland's upcoming three-game road trip, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.

    Henderson has already been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Miami, marking his third straight absence. However, the rookie guard is now expected to be sidelined at least until March 4 against Minnesota. Ashton Hagans, Kris Murray and Shaedon Sharpe should continue to receive increased minutes in Henderson's absence.

  • Trail Blazers' Moses Brown: Absence to continue Tuesday

    Brown (wrist) will not play Tuesday against Miami.

    Brown's next opportunity to take the court comes Friday versus Memphis, although it's unclear how close the big man is to a return. Duop Reath and Jabari Walker will likely continue stepping up as the relevant contributors off the bench in the frontcourt.

  • Trail Blazers' Rayan Rupert: Probable for Tuesday

    Rupert (ankle) is expected to play Tuesday against the Heat.

    Rupert has missed his team's last three games while dealing with a right ankle sprain, but he's on track to return Tuesday evening. He hasn't been much of a factor for the Blazers so far this season, averaging 2.6 points and 1.3 rebounds in 7.4 minutes (16 appearances). Expect confirmation on Rupert's availability closer to tipoff.

  • Trail Blazers' Scoot Henderson: Won't play Tuesday

    Henderson (adductor) will not play Tuesday against Miami.

    Henderson will miss his third consecutive game due to a left adductor strain, although further testing has ruled out a long-term absence for the rookie. Nonetheless, missing Portland's first three games following the All-Star break is a discouraging development, and his next opportunity to take the court comes Friday versus Memphis.

  • Trail Blazers' Malcolm Brogdon: Progressing, but still no timeline

    The Trail Blazers announced Monday that Brogdon (elbow) is making good progress in his recovery and will continue to ramp up with an anticipated return to action.

    Brogdon hasn't played since Feb. 2 due to right elbow tendinitis. While the Trail Blazers' latest update suggests that Brogdon is on the mend, the team doesn't offer up any sort of concrete timeline for his return. Until he's been confirmed to have resumed practicing in some fashion, Brogdon can probably be viewed as week-to-week rather than day-to-day. He looks unlikely to play in any of the Trail Blazers' three games this week.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Woeful performance Sunday

    Simons ended Sunday's 93-80 loss to the Hornets with 10 points (4-21 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds across 35 minutes.

    Simons was expected to be among the offensive leaders for the Trail Blazers on Sunday, but instead, he made just four of his 21 shots en route to a 10-point effort -- his fourth-worst performance of the campaign. Simons should be good enough to bounce back sooner than later, however, as he has scored at least 20 points in five of his seven February appearances, though he'll have a tough matchup against the Heat on Tuesday.

  • Trail Blazers' Jerami Grant: Struggles with shot Sunday

    Grant contributed 15 points (6-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, five assists and two steals across 32 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 loss to the Hornets.

    Grant might have ended as Portland's second-best scorer in this low-scoring matchup, but there's no question he had a rough outing, as he needed 18 shots to just 15 points while failing to contribute in other categories. There's a strong chance this was nothing more than a wrong step for Grant, however, as the veteran forward is averaging 24.2 points per game across six outings in February.

  • Trail Blazers' Deandre Ayton: Massive double-double Sunday

    Ayton posted 26 points (11-16 FG, 4-4 FT), 19 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 37 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 loss to the Hornets.

    The Trail Blazers struggled badly in this game and scored only 80 points, but Ayton was impressive down low and carried the team, scoring nearly 33.3 percent of the team's total points and grabbing his second-highest rebounding tally of the season. There's no question the team's struggles play a part in a player's upside, but Ayton has been posting solid numbers when available this season. He's averaging 14.4 points and 10.6 rebounds per contest, averaging a double-double for a sixth consecutive campaign.

  • Trail Blazers' Rayan Rupert: Out for Sunday

    Rupert (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Hornets.

    The rookie guard will sit out for a third straight game, and he currently doesn't have a timetable for a return.

  • Trail Blazers' Moses Brown: Out once again

    Brown (wrist) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Brown hasn't played since Jan. 1 after undergoing surgery on his left wrist, and the big man doesn't have a clear date to return to the hardwood. As such, fantasy managers shouldn't target him in any format for the foreseeable future.
