Damian Lillard (left ankle) is doubtful for Monday’s game against the Raptors.
Lillard was optimistic but players often do that and anything that required an X-ray was going to be iffy in terms of an immediate return. If Evan Turner (ankle) can return then he’d be the biggest beneficiary, and yes C.J. McCollum will take more shots because of course he will, but Allen Crabbe also might push ahead of top-150 threshold, too. On a team full of those types of guys, there would be a ‘rising tide to lift all boats’ effect for the entire team.
#Blazers list Aminu (back contusion) and Turner (left ankle) as PROBABLE, Lillard (left ankle) as DOUBTFUL for Monday's game vs. Toronto
