Damian Lillard made 6-of-20 from the field for 13 points with six rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer against the Hawks on Friday.
It was the classic case of him trying to do too much and he's struggled in both of his matchups vs. the Hawks this season. Lillard did match his season high in assists, but this was his just his second game of the year without a free throw attempt. Coach Terry Stotts said he was not happy about Lillard not making the All-Star Team. His usage was plenty high, so expect a big game in a better matchup against the Bucks on Saturday.

Damian Lillard discussed not being selected to the All-Star Team on Friday and said he wanted to "thank the coaches who feel I wasn't good enough, the fans that didn't think I was good enough, and Adam Silver also for not thinking I was good enough."

"It ain't always gone be peaches and cream but somebody has to pay for the reason it's not," Lillard added. Apparently, the league is on notice and it'll start tonight against the red-hot Atlanta Hawks tonight at 7:30 EST. The Blazers have the fourth best record in the NBA, Lillard is 12th in the NBA in scoring and Lillard hasn't missed a game in his career. More importantly for his fantasy owners, he's a top-10 player in standard leagues this season. If you don't have NBA League Pass, tonight might be a reason to reconsider.

Damian Lillard said that he is "definitely" taking the All-Star snub personally.

Lillard still has a chance to make it into the game as Kobe Bryant's replacement, but DeMarcus Cousins may have something to say about that. Regardless, owners of Lillard can expect him to take out his aggressions against the Atlanta Hawks tonight, and he is certainly someone to target in daily leagues.
Jan 30 - 12:07 PM

The Blazers vs. Nets game scheduled for Monday has been postponed due to inclement weather.

With the impending blizzard impacting the New York and surrounding areas, the league is making this call early, and the affair will be rescheduled for April 6. The Kings-Nets game has been postponed, as well. Those in daily formats will want to avoid deploying players from any of those four teams.
Jan 26 - 11:16 AM

Damian Lillard made 8-of-23 from the field for 21 points during a 90-89 loss to the Celtics on Thursday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He's one of the best pull-up shooters in the NBA and chances are his catch-and-shoot shots are going down. Lillard averaged 6.6 field goal attempts per game off passes from Nicolas Batum (wrist) and LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) and catch-and-shoot attempts accounted for over 20.8 percent of his shot total. Fancy stats aside, Lillard is going to be busy and will have plenty of 30-point games on the way in the next 6-8 weeks.
Jan 23 - 2:38 AM

Damian Lillard scored 23 points against the Spurs on Friday during a 110-96 loss with two rebounds and five assists.

He didn't make any 3-pointers and snapped a 10-game streak with multiple treys before tonight. If not for a 34-point game against the hapless Lakers on Sunday, Lillard would be in a slump. In his last five, he's averaged just 20.8 points, 2.6 boards, 4.8 assists, 0.4 steals and 2.4 treys. He'll likely get a Mike Conley-less Grizzlies team on Saturday, so a big game could be on the way.
Jan 17 - 12:43 AM

Damian Lillard (back) took over the fourth quarter of Sunday's game, leading the Blazers to a road win vs. the Lakers with 34 points, four 3-pointers, three rebounds and seven assists.

Lillard shot 13-of-23 from the field and 4-of-5 from the FT line, and this marks his fifth game of the season with 30+ points. The Lakers combine a fast pace with the league's second-worst defensive efficiency, so it's a dream matchup for any point guard, and he even threw down a highlight-reel dunk which you can view via the link below. Lillard is averaging 36.5 points in two games against the Lakers this season, which is worth remembering when they meet again on Feb. 11.

Damian Lillard said that his back is sore after twisting it awkwardly during Thursday's game vs. the Heat, but he doesn't expect to miss any games.

Lillard has not yet missed any games throughout his three-year career, and we wouldn't expect a minor back injury to put him on the sidelines. The Blazers host the Magic on Friday, and it's safe to assume that he'll be active for that one. We'll let you know if anything changes.
Jan 9 - 1:32 PM

Damian Lillard tweaked his back on Thursday and it didn't seem to affect him, scoring 16 points with three rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

If you were watching and were wondering why he was wearing a headband tonight, it was for Throwback Thursday because he used to wear a headband in high school. Useless information aside, Lillard's back injury doesn't seem like a concern and he's not likely to miss his first game because of it. Meanwhile, he's been putting up top-five value in standard leagues on the season.
Jan 9 - 1:42 AM

Damian Lillard scored 39 points on 12-of-21 shooting (11-of-13 FTs) with six rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in Monday's 98-94 win over the Lakers.

It's well past time for Lillard to stop being mentioned on the periphery of the NBA's elite talent. He's a first round fantasy asset and he continues to improve. LaMarcus Aldridge added 21 points with eight rebounds and a three but no steals or blocks in the win.
Jan 6 - 2:18 AM

Damian Lillard dropped 29 points in Tuesday's overtime win over the Raptors, adding nine assists, two boards, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 46 minutes.

It was just another day at the office for him, and it was great to see him swat a season-high two shots to add to this impressive line. Not only is he one of the most durable players in the league, but he is also one of the most consistent and he is as cool as they come when the game is on the line. Lillard has established himself as a top-10 fantasy asset and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Damian Lillard played in his 196th consecutive game on Sunday, finishing an easy win vs. the Knicks with 11 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, six assists and two steals.

In the process, Lillard tied Buck Williams for the third-longest consecutive games streak in Blazers' franchise history. It's a terrific accomplishment under any circumstances, and even more impressive given his enormous workload as the engine of the Blazers' offense. His durability is worth remembering when next year's fantasy drafts occur in the fall.

Damian Lillard carried Portland with 40 points, a career-high eight 3-pointers, six rebounds and 11 assists on Tuesday, helping the Blazers win in overtime in Oklahoma City.

Lillard is the only player in the NBA to record at least 40/11/6 in a game this season and he continues to get better, to the delight of his fortunate fantasy owners. He was 11-of-21 from the field (including 8-of-12 from deep) and 10-of-11 from the FT line, with two steals and only two turnovers in 46 minutes. This is an early favorite for fantasy line of the year, and Lillard has quickly established himself as a top-10 fantasy player in all formats.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 11:48:00 PM

Damian Lillard made just 6-of-16 from the field for 18 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and six turnovers against the Rockets on Monday.

Two words: Patrick Beverley. It's just his second game without a three all year and Lillard finally cooled off after three consecutive games of shooting at least 50 percent from the field. Lillard is rolling and Tuesday's game against the Thunder is must-see TV.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 11:12:00 PM

Damian Lillard drew high praise from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich after his career-high 43 points in the Blazers' triple-overtime win on Friday.

"Damian was unbelievable", coach Popovich said. "He was unguardable. He just took it upon himself and single-handedly did us in. He was amazing." It is rare for Pop to compliment opposing players like this, and it speaks volumes of Lillard's performance. Lillard has been a bargain for his owners this season, and has easily become an elite fantasy asset in all leagues. Keep him locked into all lineups and enjoy the show.
