Damian Lillard scored an easy 17 points against the 76ers on Monday with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.
He was on fire coming into last week, but these last two games are somewhat underwhelming lines from the former rookie of the year. Lillard will get another nice matchup on Monday against the Hornets, who have just given up huge lines to Chris Paul and Mario Chalmers in their last two games. Nov 25 - 12:48 AM

Damian Lillard is starting on Monday night against the 76ers.

He had a minor knee injury and there was never much of a concern. Lillard is one of the hottest guards on the planet and he plays the 76ers, so you can imagine what is possible tonight. Start him and hope it doesn't get to garbage time before the third quarter.

Damian Lillard banged his knee early in Sunday's game but it didn't limit him, and he wrote afterward that he's "fine."

A concerned fan asked him about the injury on Twitter and Lillard replied, "I'm fine thanks." He finished with 12 points, five assists and a career-high nine rebounds, so there's no reason to think he'll miss Monday's game vs. the winless 76ers.
Nov 24 - 1:25 AM

Damian Lillard secured a career-high nine rebounds on Sunday, adding 12 points, two 3-pointers, five assists and four steals in a six-point road win in Boston.

It wasn't a perfect night for Lillard's fantasy owners, as he was also 4-of-14 from the field with five turnovers, but we'll live with that result against Rajon Rondo's defense. Lillard has been sensational through the Blazers' first 13 games, and he looks like a steal for lucky fantasy owners.
Nov 23 - 8:27 PM

Damian Lillard torched the Bulls for his best game of the season during Friday's 105-87 win, making 7-of-9 from the field for 21 points with six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in just 26 minutes.

That's good for a 100.0 effective field goal percentage. Lillard is playing some of the best ball of his life in his last five with a true shooting percentage of 73.6, a usage of 28.8 and an offensive efficiency rating of 117.9. Those advanced stats translate to averages of 25.8 points, 4.8 boards, 8.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 4.0 triples. He's been a top-three player over the past two weeks in standard leagues.
Nov 22 - 2:33 AM

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 28 points against the Nets during a 97-87 win on Saturday, adding five rebounds, 10 assists, four turnovers and four 3-pointers.

Well, the slow start is behind him. Lillard is raining treys with 4.0 per game over his last five to go with averages of 24.0 points, 5.2 boards, 8.2 dimes and 1.2 steals. Sure he's had a few easy matchups, but Lillard looks like he's ready to roll as a top-10 fantasy guard.
Nov 16 - 2:30 AM

Damian Lillard hit 10-of-16 shots and five 3-pointers for 27 points, five rebounds, a season-high nine assists and two steals in an easy win over the Nuggets.

Lillard has scored 25 or more points in four of his last six games, making his slow start a distant memory. He's also hit five 3-pointers in each of his last two games, and would have done more tonight if the Blazers didn't crush the Nuggets. Lillard tied his season-low with 30 minutes in the 130-113 win. Portland also became the first team to score 84 points in a half on the road since the Rockets did it in January of 1991.
Nov 13 - 12:46 AM

Damian Lillard poured in a season-high 29 points as the Blazers stormed back to defeat the Hornets on Tuesday, making 12-of-21 shots including five 3-pointers.

Portland fell into a big early hole, but Lillard's big night vs. Kemba Walker helped the Blazers improve to 5-3 on the season (5-1 at home). Lillard added four rebounds, seven assists and two steals, though he turned the ball over six times and unusually didn't attempt a single free throw. The 24-year-old star has yet to miss a game during his NBA career, and he's returning top-20 fantasy value at this early stage in the season.
Nov 12 - 12:45 AM

Damian Lillard scored 11 points and handed out seven assists as the Blazers defeated the Nuggets on Sunday, but it was a game tinged with sadness after the death of a local fan.

The Trail Blazers had a minute of silence before the game to honor Sandy Zickefoose, a 67-year-old fan who collapsed during Thursday's game and later died at a local hospital. "I didn’t know how to recover from it," LaMarcus Aldridge said before the game. "I’m glad I wasn’t in the game because I was kind of shook after the fact, just to see that type of scene going on on the court." Sandy's family was in attendance, hopefully finding some solace in the Blazers' respects.
Nov 9 - 11:40 PM

Damian Lillard had his best game of the season agains the Clippers on Saturday with 25 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and four 3-pointers on 9-of-14 from the field.

He absolutely needed an efficient game like this one, entering today with a field goal percentage of just 34.3 percent. Lillard has been dreadful on two-point shots, but he was 5-of-6 from that range tonight. He gets a friendly matchup against the Nuggets on Sunday.
Nov 8 - 6:04 PM

Damian Lillard hit 6-of-13 shots and 1-of-6 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, six assists and a steal in 32 minutes on Thursday.

Lillard made a lot of big plays late, before being shut down in a blowout, and is on track for a hot streak. He's off to a slow start this season, but it shouldn't last much longer.
Nov 7 - 1:21 AM

Damian Lillard torched the Cavaliers with 27 points on 6-of-13 shooting during Tuesday's home win, and he chipped in six boards, seven assists, five 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

It was quite a night for the young star, who was dealing with an abdominal strain coming into the game Tuesday. His shooting slump looks like it is finally over and the buy-low window is closing real quick. Lillard said post-game that his abdominal strain is not serious and that it's just "nagging" him. Keep him deployed in all lineups.
Nov 5 - 12:45 AM

Damian Lillard (abdominal strain) will play in Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

He is off to a slow start this season but this injury could be a reason why. However, Lillard is fully expected to turn it on at anytime which means that this is an excellent time to buy low. Deploy him as usual and check back for updates after the game.
Nov 4 - 8:22 PM

Damian Lillard (abdominal strain) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

This came out of nowhere from the Blazers PR Twitter account and perhaps it's a reason behind Lillard's slow start. This is a tremendous time to buy low on the young star, as we'd need to see significantly more smoke to downgrade preseason expectations.
Nov 3 - 7:29 PM

Damian Lillard took a step forward in Friday's loss to the Kings, scoring 20 points on 4-of-13 shooting (4-of-8 3PTs, 8-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, two assists and one block.

Lillard and his teammates looked like they were sleepwalking in Sacramento, but he managed to get things moving in the right direction tonight. Once he gets rolling he'll be among the safer, more consistent top-25 values in the NBA.
