Damian Lillard scored 18 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers against the Pacers on Friday.
He's talked about his defense lately and it's helped the Blazers get off to a great start. It's also led to four blocks in his two games and he's been better on the boards, too. Perhaps most impressive of all is how he has 37 shots from the field, seven free throws, 12 assists and zero turnovers all season (26.3 usage rate). Dame Dolla can rap, but he's a better basketball player and looks poised for a career year. Oct 20 - 11:31 PM

Damian Lillard scored 27 points during a 124-76 win in Phoenix on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, five assists, one steal, four 3-pointers and matched his career-high three blocks.

The Blazers set the record for the largest opening night margin of victory in NBA history, and it's also the second-largest win in Blazers history. Lillard didn't need to play at all in the fourth quarter, as his 27-foot jumper with four seconds left at the end of the third gave the Blazers a 98-55 lead. Lillard saw his usage rate and efficiency rise in the second half last year, so he is poised for a monster year at age 27.
Oct 19 - 3:24 AM

Damian Lillard said he's preparing "to play the whole game" if he has to in Portland's season opener on Wednesday with C.J. McCollum (suspension) unavailable.

McCollum typically runs some point for Portland when Lillard subs out, but with his co-star unavailable, it sounds like Lillard is ready for massive minutes in the first game of the season. DFS players should make a note of this quote, and consider throwing Thrillard out there on Wednesday in what should be a favorable and uptempo matchup against the Suns.
Oct 16 - 5:56 PM

Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum, Evan Turner, Al-Farouq Aminu, Moe Harkless and Ed Davis will not play on Friday.

Dame has looked terrific in the preseason and his diet this summer may have made him a half-step faster. Lillard was a top-10 player after the break last year and he should be coming off the board in the first round of a 12-team draft.
Oct 13 - 9:07 PM

Damian Lillard scored 14 points on 3-of-8 shooting vs. the Kings on Monday, adding three boards, three assists, two steals and one triple.

It was a pretty quiet night from Lillard, but it's worth noting that he may have tweaked his left elbow on the final play of the third quarter. Blazers' trainer Geoff Clark was spotted applying an ice bag to the elbow and Lillard never checked back in, but it sounds pretty minor -- he said after the game that he's fine. Even so, he'll likely be rested in Wednesday's preseason finale.
Oct 10 - 12:26 AM

Damian Lillard torched the Clippers for 35 points in 26 minutes on Sunday, making 9-of-17 field goals and 13-of-13 three throws.

Lillard hit four 3-pointers and rounded out his line with three boards, three assists and a pair of steals. He's increased his scoring every year in the league, peaking at 27.0 points per game, and he's yet to miss more than seven games in an NBA season. He's an easy pick near the turn of standard fantasy drafts.
Oct 8 - 7:09 PM

Damian Lillard scored 16 points with five rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

His new album Confirmed just dropped and it turns out Dame Dolla can still flow on the basketball court. He finds himself in basically the same role he was in last year and is coming off a terrific finish after the break. Lillard's change in his diet made him look as quick as ever and he'll have an excellent chance to produce first-round value this year. After playing in 79.2 games per season over his five years in the league, Dame makes a strong case to be a top-10 pick in standard leagues.
Oct 6 - 12:41 AM

Damian Lillard has been giving a vegan diet a try and said he's down to 190 pounds.

That's the weight he played at during his rookie season. Lillard said the disappointing 2016-17 season has made him train harder than ever before, and that's part of the reason his weight is down. Lillard was a fantasy league-winning guy after the break last season as a strong first-round player in that stretch, and he's played a whopping 79.2 games per season with huge minutes over his career. He's on the board at the turn of the first round of fantasy drafts.
Sep 6 - 4:35 PM

Damian Lillard said he is planning to come to training camp lighter.

He's listed at 6'3", 195 pounds and is coming off his second consecutive season with 75 games played. Lillard turned 27 earlier this month and just posted a career-high 27.0 points per game last season. At summer league, coach Terry Stotts said he wants to see Lillard do more than just score and make his teammates better. Regardless, Lillard should be a top-20 fantasy target in just about all formats.
Jul 19 - 4:42 PM

Damian Lillard scored 34 points in a 128-103 blowout loss as the Blazers were swept 4-0 in the first round of the playoffs against the Warriors.

Lillard predicted that the Blazers would win the series in six games, but to his credit, he certainly did his part. He played 42 minutes and shot 12-of-24 from the field with six assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples, outscoring the other four Portland starters 34-15. Lillard finished the regular season as a top-20 player in standard fantasy leagues, averaging 27.0 points, 5.9 assists, 4.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 2.9 triples on 44.4 percent shooting. Barring some roster moves, Portland's core will be intact next season, so expect a similar role for Dame in 2017-18.
Apr 25 - 1:15 AM

Damian Lillard shot 5-of-17 from the field during Wednesday's Game 2 loss, finishing with 12 points, four rebounds, two steals and four turnovers in 30 minutes.

Lillard's struggles were symptomatic of the Blazers' overall offense tonight. They shot 33.3 percent, including a 7-of-34 mark from downtown, and wound up getting crushed by a final score of 110-81. Portland went 25-16 at home this season, as opposed to 16-25 on the road, and they'll look to tie up the series in Games 3 and 4 on Saturday and Monday, respectively.
Apr 20 - 1:36 AM

Damian Lillard scored 34 points on 12-of-26 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Warriors, adding three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and three turnovers.

This was Lillard's eighth consecutive playoff game with 20-plus points, and it was Lillard and C.J. McCollum running the show on offense as they combined for 75 points, which fell just two points shy of a team playoff record amongst Trail Blazers' teammates. Unfortunately, Portland didn't get much help from guys not named Lillard and McCollum, and that will need to change if they hope to have any chance of pulling off an upset against Golden State.
Apr 16 - 7:05 PM

Damian Lillard (foot) is good to go for Game 1 against the Warriors on Sunday.

Lillard sat out Portland's final two regular-season games once they locked up their seeding, but he was never expected to miss any postseason action with the minor foot issue. C.J. McCollum (hand) and Allen Crabbe (foot) should also be back in action on Sunday. Lillard averaged 31.8 points, 5.0 triples, 7.6 dimes, 4.4 boards, 1.6 steals and 3.0 turnovers per game against the Dubs in last year's playoff series, so expect him to churn out some gaudy stat lines during Round 1.
Apr 16 - 2:17 PM

Damian Lillard (foot), C.J. McCollum (hand) and Allen Crabbe (foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It'll be the second game off in a row for this trio. On Monday, Shabazz Napier went off for a career-high 32 points against the Spurs in a thrilling win, so he figures to get around 37 minutes again. Lillard's right foot strain isn't considered serious, so expect him to be ready to face his hometown team in Oakland for Game 1 this weekend.
Apr 12 - 2:42 PM

Damian Lillard (right foot strain) is planning to play on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

He's sitting out with a phantom injury on Monday vs. the Spurs as the Blazers look to get him some extra rest with the No. 8 seed locked up. For what it's worth, he was also on the court warming up tonight with no signs of an injury. Lillard said he wants to get another game under his belt to stay in a rhythm, but his minutes could be limited Wednesday.
