A hamstring injury will not keep Damian Lillard out any longer as the star point guard will return Thursday vs. the Sixers.
Lillard will play Thursday after missing two games with a hamstring strain. This seems a bit early to come back from a hamstring injury so their is a chance of re-injury. The Blazers would be wise to keep his minutes limited in this one. Shabazz Napier will return to the bench, but could still see a large workload.
Damian Lillard says there is still some tightness in his hamstring but he plans on playing vs. 76ers after missing last two games. He practiced today.
