    Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum (rest) will sit out of Thursday's preseason finale.

    No need to think too hard about this one — both Dame and C.J. are good for the end of the first round and the middle rounds, respectively, as we get closer to opening night.

    Damian Lillard scored 18 points on 5-of-10 shooting adding two rebounds, four assists and five turnovers in Saturday's loss.

    After sitting out Thursday's game, Lillard played a large portion of the game picking up where he left off in the postseason. He continues to serve as a great source for points, 3PTs, assist and elite FT%.

    Damian Lillard (rest), C.J. McCollum (rest) and Hassan Whiteside (rest) are all sitting out Thursday's preseason game against Maccabi Haifa for rest purposes, while Pau Gasol (foot) is out as well.

    Nothing to see here as the Blazers just elected to rest their critical players against an International team in an exhibition game. Draft each as you normally would.

    Damian Lillard did not practice Friday due to a hamstring injury.

    The Blazers are most likely just playing it safe with their franchise player. Lillard is one of the most durable players in the NBA, missing just two games last season. He averaged 25.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game while shooting 44.4 percent from the field, 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 91.2 percent from the free-throw line. He is one of the safest first round picks.

    Damian Lillard expects to play for Team USA during next year's Summer Olympics.

    Lillard skipped this year's World Cup but is planning to play in Tokyo. He should be a late first-round or early second-round fantasy pick this year.

    Damian Lillard has withdrawn from Team USA training camp and will not play in this summer's World Cup.

    Lillard is the latest star to sit this one out, and we can't imagine that USA Basketball will hold it against him when it comes time to pick the Olympic roster. Dame's locked in as a first-round fantasy talent as usual, and the extra time off should ensure that he's fully fresh to kick off the season.

    Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, Damian Lillard's Blazers extension is for six years and $258M, an annual salary of $43M.

    Wow. Lillard has been the face of the franchise since the Blazers drafted him, and he has proven to be a top-tier player in the league. The extension is well deserved for all he has done.

    The Blazers and Damian Lillard are working towards an agreement on a four-year supermax contract extension worth $196 million.

    Lillard is the cornerstone of the franchise, and his play last year firmly planted him among the league's upper echelon. It's a well-deserved extension for Lillard, and given his desire to stay in Portland it's hardly a surprising development.

    Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Damian Lillard and the Blazers are expected to come to terms over the summer on a four-year, $191 million supermax contract extension.

    Lillard would officially qualify for the supermax if he’s voted to one of the three All-NBA Teams, which is virtually a lock after a magnificent season. Dame has two years and approximately $62 million remaining on his current deal. The extension would put him under contract for the next six years, and he’d be 35 years old by the time the deal expires, perhaps solidifying his status as arguably the greatest player in franchise history.

    Damian Lillard had his best game this series in Monday's 117-119 Game 4 loss to the Warriors with 28 points and 12 assists to go with four rebounds and four 3-pointers.

    Lillard went 11-for-24 from the field and hit a signature logo 3-pointer, but in the end he couldn't convert on his layup or his 3-pointer in OT to keep the Blazers' season alive. He's been playing through a rib injury which explains why he's been a bit off on offense. Tonight he brought it all in an attempt to survive, but it just wasn't enough against the juggernaut Warriors.

    Damian Lillard, who is dealing with separated ribs, is not on the injury report and is expected to give it a go for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Lillard is a true competitor and while he admitted that he is dealing with the painful injury, he said that he's not going to use it as an excuse. The Blazers are pretty much in do-or-die mode right now and will need every little bit that Lillard can offer, 100 percent healthy or otherwise.

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that Damian Lillard has been playing through separated ribs in the Western Conference Finals.

    Charania and Sam Amick have since reported that the injury occurred in Game 2 when Kevon Looney landed on Lillard's ribs. To this point he's playing with a pad on his torso, though his current run of poor shooting extends back into the second round before the injury was sustained. The Blazers are facing a deep hole down 0-3 to the Warriors, and Lillard will surely be finishing out the series despite his injury. Between the ailment and Golden State selling out to stop him, Lillard has had to battle through quite a bit in the WCF.

    Damian Lillard shot 3-for-9 from behind the arc on 5-for-18 overall on Saturday, resulting in just 19 points with six rebounds, six assists, two steals and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Lillard’s shooting woes continue into Game 3. He and CJ McCollum shot a combined 12-for-38 from the field, 5-for-19 on 3-pointers and 13-for-20 from the free throw line in the loss. Three games into Western Conference Finals, Dame has shot 15-for-46 from the field. The Blazers will lean on Lillard to find his shot going into Game 4 where they host the Warriors in hopes of extending the series.
