Terry Stotts said that he'll likely place Victor Claver and Allen Crabbe on the inactive list for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.
Even if these guys were in uniform, it's highly unlikely either would step on the court. These are simply emergency depth guys and they're not the type of players that have an impact on games. Apr 20 - 12:33 PM

Victor Claver came off the bench for 13 points, five rebounds and a 3-pointer on 5-of-7 shooting in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

Claver was playing heavy minutes tonight for several reasons, including the absence of LaMarcus Aldridge and Thomas Jones, along with the fact the Blazers won 124-80 over a terrible Nets' team. We hadn't blurbed Claver since 2013 and there's a reason for it.

Blazers forward Victor Claver said that he'll consider returning to Europe if he's not earning playing time once his current NBA contract expires.

"I want to feel like I'm part of a team and that I can help the team win. For the moment, this season, I’m not doing it," Claver said. "If I’m still not playing [couple years from now], I will have to think of other options because I’m not going to be on the bench. I’m not a coach. I want to play. That’s what everybody wants to do." He has yet to attempt a field goal this season, as he's buried on Terry Stotts' bench.

Victor Claver will play on Tuesday after missing Sunday's game with a right quad contusion.

Obviously, he should be fine for the start of the real season, but he's going to struggle to see enough minutes to offer fantasy value. Ignore him on draft day, unless he goes nuts in Summer League and preseason.

Victor Claver will not play on Sunday due to a right quad contusion.

He suffered it on Saturday night and did not return to the game. Claver said that he's feeling better, but he's not quite ready. The Blazers added a little more depth during free agency and the draft, so Claver will have an even tougher time getting consistent minutes during the regular season.

Victor Claver did not return to Saturday's game after suffering a right quad contusion.

This could be the end of Claver's brief Summer League experience, but it shouldn't have any lingering effect as he prepares for the Blazers' training camp.

Victor Claver (ankle) scored three points with two boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

He's going to start for Nicolas Batum, but Claver has yet to really make an impact for the Blazers in his rookie season. His upside is too low to be considered as a asset in most fantasy leagues.

Victor Claver suffered a sprained left ankle in the second half of Wednesday's game and went to the locker room.

He rolled his ankle in transition and hobbled back to the locker room after calling for a sub. He was playing well with nine points, but now the Blazers will likely go with a combination of Sasha Pavlovic and Luke Babbitt to replace him.

Victor Claver, starting at SF in place of Nicolas Batum (shoulder), finished Wednesday's rout with seven points and two rebounds in 26 minutes.

Nicolas Batum's shoulder injury opened up plenty of minutes, but Claver didn't do much with them. Batum is day-to-day and we'd continue to avoid Claver, even though Terry Stotts intends to use the final eight games to give his young players "more of a learning experience."

Victor Claver will start in place of the injured Nicolas Batum (shoulder) on Wednesday.

Claver is coming off a solid Monday night that saw him score a career-high 12 points to go along with five rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers. Claver will be one of three rookies starting Wednesday with Meyers Leonard again in for the injured LaMarcus Aldridge. Both Claver and Leonard should be on the radar of teams in deeper leagues.

Victor Claver scored a career-high 12 points to go with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 4-of-5 from the field.

He broke his old career best of 11 points on February 13 and the Blazers have used him as a stretch four to help replace LaMarcus Aldridge. Claver can score a little bit and he's on the radar in deep leagues while LMA is on the mend.

Victor Claver's ankle is not yet at full strength.

Claver played on Wednesday after missing time with a sprained ankle, but the training staff noted he didn't have "a lot of strength," which should be expected. He's not worth owning in any format.

Victor Claver (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Claver was called a game-time decision Tuesday after going through his first practice since suffering the injury March 8. Barring a serious injury to LaMarcus Aldridge, Claver doesn't have a ton of fantasy value even when healthy.

Victor Claver (ankle) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Claver practiced Tuesday for the first time since spraining his ankle on March 8. The slender Spanish import was playing 14.0 minutes per game before going down.

Victor Claver (ankle) is expected to return to practice on Tuesday.

Terry Stotts said that Claver will "probably" return to practice on Tuesday, and that's good news considering he hasn't played since March 8. It's not clear when he might be ready for game action just yet.
