Damian Lillard has returned home after attending Team USA minicamp.
He had other summer commitments, so it was understood that he would only attend the first portion. Lillard is healthy, so his early departure is likely related to his newborn son. Lillard will be in his high-volume role again as he comes off his first All-NBA team at age 28. Coach Terry Stotts has emphasized that the Blazers need to shoot more 3-pointers, so Dame should be in the top five for 3-pointers again and perhaps assisting on more treys, too. He's easily a top-eight pick in standard leagues. Jul 27 - 3:52 PM

Damian Lillard said on Sunday that he's "not unhappy" with the Blazers' offseason moves.

"I love where I live, I love the organization, I love our coaching staff, I love who I am," Lillard said, adding that he wants the front office to "[go] all out to make it happen." He was understandably upset with the Blazers being swept from the postseason, and reportedly asked for a meeting with owner Paul Allen to discuss acquiring a big-name free agent. He wasn't thrilled with Ed Davis leaving for Brooklyn, either, but for now he's still toeing the company line.

Damian Lillard is reportedly requesting a follow-up meeting with Blazer owner Paul Allen.

"I hear that he is asking for another meeting," an NBA front-office source told John Canzano of the Oregonian. Lillard was recently named to the All-NBA First Team, and is looking for a follow-up meeting with Allen to discuss the possibility of bringing in high profile free agents to prime the Blazers for a deep playoff run. After a great regular season, followed by a season-ending sweep at the hands of the six-seed Pelicans, you can't blame him.

Damian Lillard, James Harden, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis were named to the 2017-18 All-NBA First Team.

Harden, LeBron and AD were absolute locks to make the First Team with Harden and LeBron being unanimous, but Dame over Russell Westbrook and KD getting in there over someone like Giannis Antetokounmpo were the questions we needed answered today. Lillard's Blazers held the No. 3 see in the Western Conference, which no doubt affected the voters. Lillard did have a wonderful year with a career high in dimes at 6.6 and with his 59.4 TS%. Dame Dolla will be going platinum in fantasy drafts as a top-eight pick next year.

Damian Lillard shot down the idea of Portland trading C.J. McCollum.

"I mean, I don't agree with it. I think it's that simple," Lillard said. "That's the easiest thing to say, but I don't agree with it." The Lillard and McCollum duo had a net rating of 4.8 during the regular season, but that number dropped to -12.7 during the playoffs and they were outplayed by Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo. Lillard still believes that the Blazers can turn things around and become a contender just like the Warriors did after their first round loss to the Clippers in 2014. "I honestly feel like our team is capable of something like that," Lillard said.

Damian Lillard scored 19 points with five rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer during a 131-123 loss to the Pelicans on Saturday.

He's almost certainly going to finish in the top five for MVP and he has an excellent shot to be First Team All-NBA, but he couldn't handle all the traps and doubles he saw in this series. Simply put, Lillard and C.J. McCollum need some help on the wing to help prevent teams from doing this routinely next season. Additionally, this isn't a coach Terry Stotts issue because of the lack of roster balance. Whatever happens, Dame will be a top-10 fantasy pick next year.
Apr 21 - 7:52 PM

Damian Lillard made 5-of-14 from the field for 20 points with three rebounds, two assists, eight turnovers and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes during a loss to the Pelicans on Thursday.

Yeah, the Blazers are about done and a lot of it is on Dame. He keeps dribbling into double teams and Jrue Holiday has dominated him in basically every facet. Since Game 1, coach Terry Stotts has needed to find a way to get Dame off Jrue and it still hasn't happened yet. The Blazers are down 0-3 and will have to start a miracle comeback in New Orleans on Saturday.
Apr 19 - 11:33 PM

Damian Lillard hit 7-of-18 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and seven turnovers in Tuesday's Game 2 111-102 loss to the Pelicans.

Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo appear to be motivated by playing against Lillard and C.J. McCollum, and Holiday now looks like one of the best two-way guards in these playoffs, as his defense has helped to stifle Lillard. Lillard was triple teamed at times tonight, but still managed to hit a big three-point and four-point play, the latter of which tied the game with 7:31 left in the fourth. Lillard started out 4-of-13 from the field tonight and the Blazers will have to find a way to free him up from the relentless New Orleans D that has held him to 13-of-41 shooting through the first two games. Game 3 is at New Orleans on Thursday.
Apr 18 - 1:09 AM

Damian Lillard scored 18 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes during a 97-95 Game 1 loss to the Pelicans on Saturday.

Jrue Holiday locked him down all night with Dame making just 6-of-23 from the field. Both Dame and C.J. were ice cold with just three points combined in the first half while having their worst shooting half since they have started playing together. The Blazers almost pulled off a comeback with a 32-22 edge in the fourth, but late-play mistakes cost them. Coach Terry Stotts will have to figure out ways to get Jrue switched off Dame in Game 2.
Apr 15 - 1:05 AM

Blazers snapped their four-game losing streak on Wednesday, led by Damian Lillard's 36 points (13-of-25 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), 10 assists, four 3-pointers, one rebound and one steal in 37 minutes.

He was mired in a slump recently, but he'll head into the postseason with some momentum after this stellar effort that helped the Blazers clinch the No. 3 seed in the West. Lillard did take a hard spill with a few minutes left in the fourth quarter, but he's one of the toughest guys in the league and should be ready for Game 1 vs. the Pelicans.
Apr 12 - 1:22 AM

Damian Lillard went for a game-high 33 points over 35 minutes in Saturday's 116-105 loss in San Antonio.

Lillard was doing everything in his power to will his team to a victory, but the Spurs were able to gain separation in the final stanza. He ended up 11-of-22 from the field, including 6-of-12 from behind the 3-point line, and perhaps the only thing fantasy owners could be angry about were his seven turnovers. Lillard is going to be a handful for opposing defenders going into the postseason.
Apr 8 - 12:07 AM

Damian Lillard (ankle) will play on Saturday against the Spurs.

Huge positive news for his fantasy owners here. He has said he wanted to play for a few days now, but the training staff had a big say. He talked to the trainers just now and apparently they're happy with how his ankle responded to warmups. Shabazz Napier will be moving to the bench.
Apr 7 - 7:48 PM

Damian Lillard is a game-time decision against the Spurs on Saturday.

Dame said he is going to play and coach Terry Stotts hinted that he'll play, too. For now, we're fully expecting Lillard to play and play his normal minutes. Wade Baldwin was very good in he last game, so maybe he leapfrogs Shabazz Napier.
Apr 7 - 7:00 PM

Damian Lillard (ankle) is probable for Saturday against the Spurs.

Dolla back, y'all? Lillard said he is planning to play, so the probable tag from the team is excellent news here. This game is in San Antonio and the Blazers likely want the No. 3 seed, so Lillard could be a full go after getting Thursday off.
Apr 6 - 5:50 PM

Dame Lillard (ankle) plans to play on Saturday against the Spurs.

Coach Terry Stotts also said he "would hope so" that Dame will play before the season ends. The Blazers are losing their grasp on the No. 3 seed with the Jazz getting another win, and going against the Spurs in San Antonio could be a factor. Lillard's ankle injury was never really considered serious, but the Blazers ruled him out after shootaround. This would obviously be great news for Lillard's fantasy owners while Shabazz Napier would take a hit.
