Arron Afflalo is planning to opt out of the last year of his deal this summer, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
This is probably good news for the Blazers. Afflalo was a colossal letdown since the Blazers picked him up at the trade deadline. Plus, C.J. McCollum having a post-break explosion as a scorer suggests he's earned a role with 26-30 minutes with a usage rate over 20 next season. There's still two months before free agency starts, so expect several stories to change. May 1 - 2:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) returned to action for Game 3 vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday, but he scored just five points on 2-of-5 shooting before fouling out in 27 minutes.

He did add six boards, one assist and one 3-pointer to his name, but he looked pretty rusty and he was clearly frustrated with himself after picking up so many cheap fouls. Afflalo wasn't playing well before the injury, so he is going to have to step it up if he doesn't want to lose more minutes to C.J. McCollum.

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) will start against the Grizzlies in Game 3 on Saturday.

He said on Friday that he's not 100 percent, but he has been able to go through practice. Afflalo hasn't played well whatsoever, so it should be interesting to see how tight of a leash coach Terry Stotts will have on him. Allen Crabbe will lose a ton of minutes while C.J. McCollum could lose a handful, too.
Apr 25 - 8:58 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is officially listed as probable, but he says he will play in Game 3 on Saturday.

"It's no time to get to 100 percent," Afflalo said. "You just go out there and give it your best." Afflalo isn't expected to have a minutes restriction moving forward and also said that he won't have any problems shooting from distance. It isn't clear what type of role he will have right out of the gate, but it's safe to say that Allen Crabbe and C.J. McCollum should expect to lose some playing time. However, Afflalo wasn't playing well before the injury which makes it tough to trust him in daily leagues.

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is probable to play against the Grizzlies in Game 3 on Saturday.

He was able to do some shooting before Wednesday, but his shoulder looked to be an issue on long-range shots. Afflalo was pushing a weighed sled on Friday, which suggests he's a lot closer to being healthy. C.J. McCollum played 37 minutes in Game 1 and just 29 minutes in Game 2, so maybe he's lost some playing time due to making just 19.0 percent from the field in the playoffs. Expect C.J. and Allen Crabbe to lose more minutes. Afflalo is still not someone fantasy owners can trust due to his lackluster numbers since joining the Blazers.
Apr 24 - 3:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) will not play against the Grizzlies in Game 2 on Wednesday.

He did warm up, but apparently isn't well enough to play. Afflalo has been focusing on his mid-range shots and looked to show pain as he was moving away from the rim, so perhaps his shoulder hurts more on deeper shots. C.J. McCollum will get most of the wing minutes next to Nicolas Batum.
Apr 22 - 6:30 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

"If I can help in any way, whether it be 70 percent, 80 percent… I’m gonna get out there and do it," said Afflalo. He also added that if he can't go on Wednesday, he will almost certainly play in Game 3 on Saturday, and it sounds like he'll be a game-time decision for Game 2. He's not going to be 100 percent, but the Blazers could use all the help they can get right now, especially considering how much C.J. McCollum struggled through Game 1. When Afflalo returns to the lineup, he'll take away minutes from McCollum, and Allen Crabbe may fall out of the rotation entirely.
Apr 21 - 3:56 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) said that his goal is to play in Game 2 against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Afflalo stopped short of saying that he would actually play on Wednesday, but we'll likely get another update on his status following Tuesday's practice. It sounds like he could be headed for the dreaded game-time call on Wednesday, but if he is able to go, he'll take away minutes from C.J. McCollum and Allen Crabbe. Stay tuned.
Apr 21 - 2:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) could return for Game 2 vs. Memphis, according to CSNNW.

"Yeah, I'm good," Afflalo said when asked if he'd be ready for the next contest. All the Blazers have said was that he participated in some portions of practice on Sunday, and with players notoriously optimistic about their recoveries, especially in the playoffs, we're going to need to see harder news before declaring AA ready to return.

Apr 20 - 11:07 AM

Updating a previous report, Arron Afflalo (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Game 1 against the Grizzlies.

Head coach Terry Stotts said that Afflalo is getting better every day, and that he's getting his range of motion back, so it sounds like he's getting close to being available. However, he’ll be forced to spend Game 1 on the sidelines, and it'll be Allen Crabbe and C.J. McCollum being asked to fill the void in his absence, with McCollum offering the most upside.
Apr 19 - 6:34 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) was spotted going through a pregame workout at full speed, and it's looking like he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's Game 1 vs. the Grizzlies.

Afflalo is still being listed as doubtful, but the fact that he's going through a workout at full speed is certainly a positive sign. He's currently in the second week of his initial 1-2 week timetable, so there is a chance he takes the floor tonight, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. If he is able to play, C.J. McCollum's value would take a sizable hit, and Allen Crabbe may fall entirely out of the rotation.
Apr 19 - 6:28 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is listed as doubtful to play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

The good news is that he's getting closer and is even getting his shots up on Friday, but Afflalo might need two weeks to heal from his shoulder strain suffered on Apr. 9. C.J. McCollum will benefit most even if the Blazers opt to go with Allen Crabbe as the starter, which could definitely happen.
Apr 18 - 3:24 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) went through a workout on Friday and attempted some shots.

He was drenched in sweat and taking some shots today bodes well for his chances to play. Still, Afflalo was outplayed by C.J. McCollum, so he might not play more than 32 minutes in the first round. Fantasy owners might want to use someone else in postseason formats or in daily leagues.
Apr 17 - 4:36 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is hoping for a Game 1 to occur on Sunday.

He's unsure about his status for the first day of the postseason and he's out tonight. The Blazers lost Nicolas Batum and C.J. McCollum to leg injuries, so they may need Afflalo more than ever. For now, Allen Crabbe and Alonzo Gee will get most of the minutes on the wing.
Apr 15 - 2:35 PM

Arron Afflalo was diagnosed with a right shoulder strain and will miss the next 1-2 weeks.

It could be worse and at least Afflalo does have a chance to make it back for the postseason. However, Afflalo's regular season is over, averaging 13.3 points, 3.2 boards, 1.7 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.5 treys on 42.4 percent from the field. With Afflalo out, C.J. McCollum is really going to get to show what he can do. He's a must-own player. Expect Allen Crabbe to get more run and possibly Alonzo Gee getting in the rotation.
