Trail Blazers stumbled badly Wednesday night against Miami at home. Damian Lillard left the game in the 3rd with a calf strain. He hopes to return for Memphis next week.
Still, Blazer are 4-1.
Pretty, pretty, pretty good.
What’s your evaluation at this point?

Last season, Caleb Martin went on a defensive point guard tour in January on the road trip
Started at the 4, and held Steph Curry to 3 of 17 shooting
Following game played Portland (without Dame)
Now it’s the inverse, with the Curry match up to come tonight
I like it – 12:59 PM

Re: Damian Lillard: Last season the average lost time for a calf strain was 16 days (median= 17, minimum 3 days). Also worth mentioning, Lillard does have a history here having missed two games during the 2017-2018 season with a strain of the same calf. – 10:18 AM

Not great on Dame (calf). Probably going to miss time, but hopefully not for long. Ant Simons obviously in a huge spot, but the Blazers should get Gary Payton II back (he’s who I would pick up in fantasy).

Timing could certainly be worse for Dame’s injury. They’ve got Houston on Friday which should be a winnable game even without him, then four (4) whole days off before their next game next Wednesday against Memphis. – 11:53 PM

Damian Lillard limped off and straight back to the locker room. You’ll probably see it on tv before we do in the arena but I think he stepped on Martin’s foot trying to pass out of a double team. – 11:38 PM

More on this storyline

Damian Lillard left the Portland Trail Blazers’ 119-98 loss to the Miami Heat on Wednesday night because of a strained right calf. Lillard, a six-time All-Star, came up limping with just over five minutes to go in the third quarter and headed straight for the locker room. He did not return. Speaking after the game, Lillard said the calf felt a little tight before tipoff and that the tightness didn’t go away in the first half, leading him to put some compression on it at halftime. He said when he rose up for a shot in the third quarter, it tightened up more, leading to his exit. “It wasn’t nothing that I was overly concerned with,” he told reporters. “I just know that it wouldn’t make sense to try and push through it in the fifth game of the season.” -via ESPN / October 27, 2022
Justin Kubatko: Damian Lillard last night: ✅ 31 PTS ✅ 6 REB ✅ 8 AST It’s the 73rd time Lillard has recorded at least 30p/5r/5a in a game, breaking a tie with Clyde Drexler for the most such games in @Portland Trail Blazers history. The Blazers are 4-0 for the first time since the 1999-2000 season. pic.twitter.com/gGLg0oaTWt -via Twitter @jkubatko / October 25, 2022
