Damian Lillard told beat writer Casey Holdahl that there were times toward the end of last season in which is foot hurt so bad that the only time he could play was during games.
Lillard didn’t look quite right at times and being banged up was one reason the team featured C.J. McCollum so much. As durable as they come to start his career, like many players before him the nicks and dings start to add up and he’ll be somebody to consider for a normal ‘games played’ workload going forward. Unless we hear more about this it’s safe for owners to assume he’ll be healthy for the start of next season.
