• Al-Farouq Aminu will not play on Thursday against the Lakers due to a right ankle injury.

    Aminu rolled his ankle last night and was spotted in a walking boot, so this was expected. It looks like the injury could keep him sidelined for a bit, opening up minutes in a fairly crowded group of power forward types for Portland. Noah Vonleh could start in his place, while Ed Davis should make for a nice rebounding specialist in added minutes. The Blazers could also use Maurice Harkless at the four and play some different small lineups. Aminu is worth holding until we hear about the severity of his injury.
