Great players have a way of coming through for fantasy owners even when things aren't going well, and that was certainly the case for Lillard tonight. Look for him to get some redemption on Saturday against the Lakers. Nov 25 - 1:13 AM

Damian Lillard dropped 30 points and a career-high 13 assists in Sunday's win over the Lakers, while chipping in three 3-pointers, six rebounds, two steals and one block.

He shot 12-of-25 from the field and only turned the ball over twice in 37 minutes, getting anywhere he wanted to vs. the Lakers' perimeter defenders. The Blazers have now won a franchise-best five straight road games in L.A., and they held on tonight thanks to a combined 49 points from Lillard and C.J. McCollum.

Damian Lillard scored 27 points during a 102-91 win over the Clippers on Friday, adding four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It was Lillard Time. He killed the Clippers late with 11 points in the fourth quarter. Lillard hit a pullup trey to give the Blazers a boost and he pointed to his wrist and looked at the Clippers to let them know what time it was. He's putting up second-round value on the season despite a prolonged shooting slump. You can check out a video of Dame's celebration in the link below.

Damian Lillard made 10-of-21 from the field for 27 points against the Spurs during a 93-80 loss on Monday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

The bandage on his thumb has not worked out well for him, making just 2-of-18 from deep in his last three games. On the bright side, Lillard has been very good on his two-pointers this season, making 45.7 percent on his mid-range shots. Hopefully that bandage comes off soon and he doesn't have to deal with numbness in his fingers.

Damian Lillard said his thumb is beginning to feel better.

Lillard had to remove the nail on his thumb after it was partially torn off, and he's since been using numbing ointment which makes it difficult to feel the ball coming out of his hand when shooting. "It felt a lot better than it did against Memphis,’’ Lillard said. "It’s just a little bit weird … my shot is going to the left. It’s just unfortunate. I have to play through it." We don't expect Lillard, one of the NBA's most durable players, to even think about missing time.

Damian Lillard (thumb) shot 9-of-25 from the field to finish Sunday's game with 23 points, eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and five turnovers.

Lillard's thumb is very tender and it's doing his shooting no favors -- he's just 35.0 percent from the field in his past two games, including a 1-of-14 mark from downtown. His owners should be pleased that he's playing through the injury, and with any luck he'll get going vs. the Spurs on Monday -- opposing PGs are shooting 45.3 percent vs. San Antonio this year, the fifth-highest mark in the league.

Damian Lillard made 5-of-15 from the field for 11 points during a 101-100 loss to the Grizzlies on Friday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and no 3-pointers.

He had his thumb heavily wrapped with the outer layer having some stick to it. Lillard had a streak of at least three 3-pointers in eight straight games snapped, which was just one game shy of Kyle Korver's record. Hopefully that bandage comes off soon.
Nov 14 - 2:37 AM

Damian Lillard (thumb) will play against the Grizzlies on Friday with a heavily bandaged thumb.

He has most of his thumbnail gone and hopefully it shouldn't affect his shot much. Lillard will be ready to roll and should hoist plenty of shots.
Nov 13 - 6:19 PM

Damian Lillard (thumbnail) is probable for Friday's game against Memphis.

"It’s just sore, it’s tender," Lillard said. "When I dribble the ball with my right hand, it’s tender. When I try to shoot it’s real tender. I’m going to have to just try to warm it up and shoot through the pain, I guess." Lillard had most of his right thumbnail removed after Wednesday's loss to the Spurs, but it sounds like he will definitely give it a go tonight. We'll have confirmation of his status prior to tip-off, but he can be plugged into active lineups.

Damian Lillard had most of his right thumbnail removed.

Anyone who's had a nail issue knows that a partially broken nail is more painful than almost no nail at all. This should help Lillard's pain tolerance and he'll be all good for the weekend. He's going to be one of the highest scoring players on the season and will look to keep putting up big numbers against the Grizzlies on Friday.
Nov 12 - 7:41 PM

Damian Lillard said he isn't worried about the loss of his right thumbnail being anything serious.

Lillard lost his right thumbnail during Wednesday's loss to the Spurs, but the Blazers star isn't worried about any long-term effects. "From 3, it felt good," Lillard said. "A lot of the 2s were at the rim. Some of them just rolled out. It's irritating. I'll treat it and try to get it in the best condition I can." We'll keep an eye on Lillard's status, but it doesn't look like he'll miss any time with this injury.
Nov 12 - 10:25 AM

Damian Lillard said he lost part of his right thumbnail on Wednesday.

He said he'll try to treat it and try to ignore it for Friday's game against the Grizzlies. Lillard had a decent game on Wednesday, scoring 22 points with six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and five 3-pointers. He's putting up top-10 value this season. He probably won't be losing his consecutive games played streak over this thumb issue.
Nov 12 - 2:10 AM

Damian Lillard hit 9-of-22 shots and three more 3-pointers for 30 points, three boards, seven assist and a steal, also hitting 9-of-9 free throws in Monday's loss to the Nuggets.

Emmanuel Mudiay hung tough with Lillard tonight and the Blazers couldn't eek out a win. Lillard, behind Steph Curry and (maybe) Russell Westbrook has become one of the most exciting point guards to own in the NBA.
Nov 9 - 11:44 PM

Damian Lillard needed only 15 shots to score 26 points vs. Detroit on Sunday, making four 3-pointers with four rebounds, 11 assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

The Blazers are fourth in the league in points per possession and their backcourt is the driving force, combining for 44 points tonight. The bad news is that Portland is in the bottom-third for points allowed to point guards (24.7) and FG percentage for opposing point guards (44.6 percent). None of that detracts from Lillard's fantasy appeal, of course, and he gets a delectable matchup vs. the Nuggets on Monday.

Nov 8 - 11:52 PM

Damian Lillard stayed hot against the Grizzlies during a 115-96 win on Thursday, making 9-of-18 from the field for 27 points with one rebound, five assists, one block and seven 3-pointers.

Lillard is on pace for 314 treys this season, which would break Stephen Curry's record from last season of 286 -- Curry is likely going to shatter that, though. Still, Lillard is putting up a very special start as a scorer, increasing his efficiency to a pristine 59.2 true shooting percentage. He's one of the best guards in the NBA and is a first-round asset in fantasy.
