Portland General Manager Neil Olshey said that he is hoping to have Robin Lopez (hand) back before the All-Star Game, but said that he wouldn't push it.
It sounds like we won't see Lopez back out on the court until after the All-Star break, and his owners will have to continue to remain patient. With LaMarcus Aldridge currently nursing a thumb injury, Chris Kaman, Thomas Robinson and Meyers Leonard will continue to pick up some extra minutes in the frontcourt for Portland in the short-term. Nicolas Batum and Dorell Wright will also see an uptick in shot attempts and minutes as well. Jan 22 - 4:44 PM

Robin Lopez said he is no longer wearing a cast on his right hand.

He's still expected to be out until next month, but he's making progress. Chris Kaman has benefitted the most and is worth a look in standard leagues. It'll probably be about time to stash Lopez in two weeks.

Robin Lopez said on Twitter Tuesday that he's going to miss six to seven weeks, and not just a month as originally reported.

If you were on the fence about dropping Ro-Lo, this should push you on over to the other side. Seven weeks puts us flirting with the All-Star break, and it's just too long to hold a non-dominant center in standard leagues. But if you can stash him on an IR, or the bench, without hurting the strength of your team, do it.

Robin Lopez (hand) is expected to miss one month with his broken right hand.

He is going to visit a specialist on Tuesday, but he did say he has two breaks in his hand after a collision with Aron Baynes. Lopez hasn't missed a game since 2012, so this comes as a shock. His owners should probably stash him. Chris Kaman will likely start while Joel Freeland gets some run, as well.

Robin Lopez suffered a fracture to his right hand and will be out "a while," according to coach Terry Stotts.

He has a fracture in two places, so that doesn't sound too promising. For what it's worth, a finger or metacarpal fracture usually results in a 4-6 week timetable. Lopez was putting up top-75 value before his injury, so his fantasy owners will probably want to at least consider stashing him. Meanwhile, Chris Kaman makes sense as a pickup in all standard leagues.

Robin Lopez suffered a right hand injury and will not return on Monday.

There is no word of an X-ray or an MRI for Lopez, but he'll likely get at least one of those tests. He's been remarkably durable in his career and hopefully is fine. Chris Kaman would get a sizable bump, so give him a look if you need a big man.

Robin Lopez scored four points on 2-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in Friday's loss.

Lopez's numbers are a bit down in a number of categories and he's returning just top 90-100 value so far this year, but we'd expect him to pick up the pace a little bit and solidify his value higher into the middle rounds.

Robin Lopez scored the game-winning basket on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets and ended up with 11 points on perfect 5-of-5 shooting, with three rebounds and one assist in 31 minutes.

While it wasn't that impressive in terms of fantasy value, Lopez was big for Portland in this one on both ends of the court. The addition of Chris Kaman this season has dented RoLo's value slightly but he remains a must-own player in standard leagues and is returning mid-round value.

Robin Lopez played just 23 minutes in Friday's home loss to the Grizzlies, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds and one assist.

Lopez did not record a steal or block but he's been fine in fantasy leagues so there's no need to panic. Chris Kaman simply got hot in the second half and Terry Stotts rode the hot hand.

Robin Lopez notched his third double-double of the season on Wednesday, scoring 15 points and grabbing 10 rebounds with two assists and three blocks in 31 minutes.

He made 6-of-10 field goals and is reminding fantasy owners why they drafted him. Perhaps no player consistently returns mid-round value with less fanfare than Lopez, who hasn't missed a beat despite the arrival of Chris Kaman (12 points, seven rebounds) as Portland's new backup center.

Robin Lopez fired back at his brother Brook Lopez during a recent interview.

"I usually let my game do the talking. If anything, I just have to warn him to not to come to the [Moda Center]," said Robin. "Just don't even bother stepping foot in there because it's going to be an embarrassment from start to finish... My mom's already rooting for me." The verbal sparing started when Brook was asked to describe his brother in 25 words or less, to which Brook simply stated, "He's an idiot." The two will square off Saturday night in Portland, in what should be a fun battle to watch. Robin is currently putting up mid-round value on the season with 12.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game.

Robin Lopez had 19 points and five rebounds on 8-of-11 shooting in just 21 minutes on Wednesday.

It was a blowout and Ro-Lo has scored exactly 19 points in three of his last six games. And just like his brother, he hasn't had 10 rebounds in any of them.
Thu, Nov 13, 2014 12:43:00 AM

Robin Lopez played a season-low 23 minutes vs. the Hornets on Tuesday, finishing with four points, four rebounds and one block.

RoLo has played 30+ minutes just twice through the Blazers' first eight games so this isn't particularly surprising, but his fantasy owners can't be thrilled. Chris Kaman was on fire off the bench and Joel Freeland earned minutes down the stretch with aggressive rebounding and defense vs. Al Jefferson, so hopefully this will light a fire under Lopez.

Robin Lopez scored 19 points with seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes on Saturday against the Clippers.

He had some kind of start with a 17 points in the first half thanks to not missing any of his six field goal and free throw attempts. Lopez was getting a lot of open looks and is no longer the major offensive liability he once was. Ro-Lo is very good for percentages and should have mid-round value all season.

Robin Lopez scored 19 points in a win vs. Cleveland on Tuesday while adding six boards, two assists, three steals, and one block in 29 minutes.

He shot an impressive 8-of-11 from the field and has been consistently solid early on for Portland this season. The big man will rarely blow you away, but owners have to love what they are seeing from Lopez so far.
