    Lillard hit 5-of-10 shots from 3-point range and aded five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks to the box in 40 minutes. Top-10 Lillard is officially back and ready to rock it ROS.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum scored 19 points with four rebounds, six assists and two steals in a 123-111 loss to the Kings on Saturday.

    McCollum attempted to carry the scoring load with Damian Lillard slumping (12 points on 4-of-15 shooting), but the Blazers still fell to the Kings. McCollum and Lillard will be locked and loaded for big minutes and heavy usage as the Blazers fight for the final playoff spot in the West.

    C.J. McCollum scored 25 points (10-for-20 FG, 3-for-8 3PT) to go along with eight assists, three rebounds, three triples, one steal and one block across 39 minutes on Friday.

    McCollum led the Blazers in scoring by one over Damian Lillard who finished with 24 points, six assists, three rebounds and three triples. Look for these two to get heavy minutes down the stretch as the Blazers fight for a playoff spot.

    Damian Lillard did a bit of everything in his return to action on Wednesday night, picking up 22 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3PT), four rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.

    Lillard picked up where he left off, putting up elite production as a top fantasy option. He's been a top-5 player over the last two months and didn't skip a beat in his first game back. Backcourt mate C.J. McCollum also had 22 points with six rebounds, five assists and block tonight.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will play Wednesday vs. the Wizards with no minutes restriction.

    Lillard hasn't played since the All-Star break but is coming back in full force to help the Blazers fight for the last playoff spot in the West. He should have a big night vs. the 30th ranked defense in the NBA even if he is rusty. Make sure he is in your lineups.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) is probable and on track to make his return to the starting lineup for the Blazers on Wednesday against the Wizards.

    Lillard has been sidelined since the All-Star break and his return has been highly anticipated, both for the Blazers and for fantasy owners. They continue to battle with the Grizzlies and Pelicans for the final playoff spot in the West. Plug him back into your lineups as long as there are no further updates indicating that he will remain sidelined for longer.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum was on fire on Monday in Orlando, leading the Blazers to an easy 130-107 win over the Magic on Monday with 41 points (14-of-24 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), six 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and a steal in 36 minutes.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) is targeting a return from a six-game absence in the Blazers' next game, which is on Wednesday, so the party is likely over for those that roster McCollum. He's been on an incredible tear over that six-game stretch, easily putting up early-round value. It may lead his owners to dream of a Blazers' backcourt breakup, something Lillard fans wouldn't mind either. However, the pair is probably sticking together for quite a while.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) is aiming to return to the lineup on Wednesday, per Shams Charania.

    The Blazers are in the thick of a fight for their playoff lives and Dame's return would be a massive boost to the team. He's been sidelined since the All-Star break but is pretty much on track with the initial expectation of 1-2 weeks missed.

    Damian Lillard (groin strain) will not play on Monday.

    That means Lillard will miss at least one more game beyond tonight. Luckily for him and the Blazers, the Grizzlies have slowed down a bit and Portland is well within striking distance for the final playoff spot in the West. Lillard might be dicey for next week but he should hopefully be returning relatively soon.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum's 28 points on 11-of-27 shooting and eight assists wasn't enough as the Blazers' rally came up short on Thursday night.

    McCollum is the primary scorer for this team without Damian Lillard, and he's going to continue to shoot at high volume. We like the scoring numbers, assists and the three triples, but 27 shots is a few too many to be comfortable with. Hopefully Lillard returns soon to take some pressure off of McCollum in these upcoming must-win games.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will not travel with the Blazers to face the Pacers on Thursday.

    This isn't a major surprise, as he was already expected to miss the next couple of games. However, he could rejoin the team later on the road trip. C.J. McCollum owners should have some big numbers on the way while Lillard is out.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will be with the Blazers on their upcoming 3-game trip, but he is expected to miss "a couple more games", according to Jason Quick of the Athletic.

    Lillard was expected to miss at least 3-4 games so there is a chance he returns at some point during the current trip. C.J. McCollum has been the biggest beneficiary in his absence with Gary Trent Jr. and Anfernee Simons also getting an extended run.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will miss Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    This will be game number three of Lillard's absence, which was expected. Thursday's game at Indianapolis will be his next chance to return. C.J. McCollum came up huge on Sunday in his place. Watch for young guards Gary Trent Jr. and Anfernee Simons to get a few extra minutes.

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) is officially out for Sunday's game.

    Lillard was projected to miss at least 3-4 games, so this comes as no surprise. Until he returns, expect big games from C.J. McCollum and some deep-league value coming from Gary Trent Jr.

    Gary Trent Jr. is in the starting lineup for Friday's home clash with the Pelicans.

    He is starting for an injured Damian Lillard. Lillard's injury is not expected to be serious, but if he is forced to miss more time, Trent Jr. would be one of the primary beneficiaries in his stead.
