Damian Lillard (sprained left ankle) did not practice on Tuesday and is doubtful for Wednesday’s game against the Kings.
The Blazers’ backs are against the walls and a game against the Kings actually matters in late December as they could both be competing for the eight slot in the West. That said, Lillard said this was the worst sprain of his career and we’re not sure he’s coming back this week, let alone on Wednesday. Evan Turner was the best beneficiary on Monday even as he recovers from an ankle injury, and Allen Crabbe might fare better when not going against one of the league’s best backcourts as he did on Monday. The Kings are a plus matchup for fantasy purposes.
