Damian Lillard (right knee sprain) has been ruled out of Game 5 against the Lakers on Wednesday.
Lillard suffered the injury during their Game 4 loss on Monday and it would appear as though it could be the end of his season, barring an emphatic performance by his teammates. Lillard has basically single-handedly carried the Blazers to this point and his absence is sure to be felt. Picking up the slack will be Gary Trent Jr. and Anfernee Simons, both of whom are worth a look in DFS if you need a cheap source of points.
