    Gary Trent Jr. had the game of his young career on Saturday, dropping a career-best 30 points on 12-of-18 shooting with a full stat line.

    Trent Jr. hit 5-of-9 shots from downtown and chipped in five rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 36 minutes of action. The Blazers ran an eight-man rotation and without C.J. McCollum (sprained left ankle), Trent Jr. splashed his way to a stellar explosion. He's worth a speculative add for short-term value.

    C.J. McCollum will not return vs. the Mavs on Friday after spraining his left ankle.

    McCollum rolled his ankle after stepping on Maxi Kleber's foot. Check back for an update on McCollum in the next couple of days. Anfernee Simons and Gary Trent Jr. are likely to see increased minutes and are two names to watch in 16-team leagues while McCollum is out. Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony and Hassan Whiteside will see a boost in value with McCollum out.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum appeared to roll his left ankle on Friday and headed to the locker room with the trainers.

    McCollum stepped on Maxi Kleber's foot and hopped around until the Blazers could call a timeout. He then headed straight to the locker room. Anfernee Simons and Gary Trent Jr. could see extra minutes if McCollum misses time, but they probably won't be an impact in standard-leagues. Most of McCollum's value would be absorbed by Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony and Hassan Whiteside if he misses time.

    Gary Trent Jr. is starting for C.J. McCollum in Sunday's game versus the Heat.

    McCollum is dealing with an illness, so Trent is not a longterm add. With that being said, he is minimum salary across the industry in DFS and is worth a flier for tonight.

    Gary Trent Jr. (right hamstring strain) is questionable to play on Sunday against the Thunder.

    Trent has missed the last six games but could be looking at a nice chunk of minutes when he does return in the wake of Rodney Hood's season-ending injury. We're not super excited about his outlook but Trent is definitely someone to keep a close eye on in deeper leagues.

    Gary Trent Jr. has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings as he continues to nurse a right hamstring strain.

    Trent Jr. has not played in the Blazers' last four contests and has only seen over 20 minutes one time this season. He is currently off the fantasy radar. However, there is a possibility that he earns a spot in the rotation as the season progresses as the Blazers are off to a disappointing 8-13 start.

    Gary Trent Jr. (right hamstring strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Trent Jr. has been off the fantasy radar for some time now, given the Blazers' depth on the wing.

    The Blazers are listing Gary Trent as probable to face the Clippers on Tuesday.

    The addition of Carmelo Anthony has eliminated the possibility of Trent joining the rotation so he is only a stash in dynasty leagues.

    Gary Trent (right hamstring strain) is probable to face the Bulls on Friday.

    Trent was probable to play on Wednesday but didn't leave the bench, so he might not be in the rotation with Portland pretty close to full strength.

    The Blazers have listed Gary Trent Jr. (right hamstring strain) as probable vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Trent Jr. is not on any fantasy radars right now. And a healthy starting Blazers backcourt means there will be little left on the table for Trent to produce any value.

    Gary Trent Jr. has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls with a right hamstring strain.

    Trent Jr. has played more this season than many have expected due to injuries but as the Blazers continue to get healthy, Trent Jr. will likely see his minutes evaporate.

    Gary Trent (right hamstring strain) is being listed as questionable for Monday.

    Trent popped with a 13-point game last week when Portland was shorthanded, but had not exceeded seven minutes in three of his last four, and was a DNP for two games before that. There's handcuff potential in the deepest of formats but Trent's status shouldn't affect many fantasy managers.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (back spasms) said that he will be a game-time decision for Saturday's contest against the Cavs.

    Lillard was originally listed as probable after a two-game absence but said that his back tightened up after a 30-minute workout and lifting session on Friday and remained tight during Saturday morning's shootaround although he did mention that he may play through it. The Blazers went with Gary Trent over Anfernee Simons last game as Trent finished with 13 points, three triples, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes as Simons saw only 17 minutes after playing 36 the previous game. It would be risky to go with either player if Lillard sits out another game.

    Gary Trent Jr. started his first game of the season on Thursday, playing 21 minutes, scoring 13 points and adding three defensive counters.

    Trent Jr. had his first impactful game of the year in this loss with his first double-digit scoring outing. He's not worth a look at this point, but if there were a bevy of injuries on top of what the Blazers are dealing with now, he may be a streaming option.

    Gary Trent Jr. scored 28 points on 11-for-24 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, four threes and a steal in Friday night's win over the Bucks.

    Despite struggling at times with his efficiency, Trent Jr. showed enough for the Blazers in Summer League to be someone to watch as we head toward training camp. The Blazers rotation will be in flux with Mo Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu and Seth Curry all gone and there's an outside chance Trent Jr. could factor into that discussion.
