Damian Lillard made 5-of-14 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs to score 18 points on Wednesday, adding six assists, three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.
Dame did appear to tweak his right foot/ankle tonight, which was already "a little sore" before he dropped 39 points vs. the Warriors on Monday. He's no stranger to playing hurt and has yet to miss a game this season, but we'll keep an eye on him for Friday's game in Orlando. Barring a pessimistic update, though, he belongs in every active lineup. Dec 14 - 12:28 AM

Damian Lillard scored 39 points in a losing effort on Monday vs. the Warriors, hitting 12-of-28 shots and 10-of-12 free throws.

He was borderline unfair in the second half and almost brought the Blazers back from a massive deficit, forcing the Warriors to guard him with Klay Thompson and even Kevin Durant for stretches. He only handed out two assists, but he hit five 3-pointers with four rebounds and a pair of steals. Portland has lost five straight, but their schedule softens up a bit with games coming up against the Heat, Magic and Hornets.

Damian Lillard said that his right ankle is still "a little sore," but he plans to play Monday vs. Golden State.

Lillard tweaked his ankle during the second half of Sunday's loss to the Rockets but didn't miss any game-time action, and in typical Lillard-fashion he'll just fight through the pain. Feel free to get him active, as he has a history of going off when playing in his hometown of Oakland.
Dec 11 - 3:46 PM

Damian Lillard scored 35 points during a tough 124-117 loss to the Rockets on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal and nine 3-pointers.

This was a tough loss for the Blazers as they were torched in the fourth 40-19. Lillard did suffer a right ankle tweak in the second half and had a big wrap on his ankle, but he didn't miss time. The Rockets smelled blood in the water and had a huge target on him for defense with James Harden and Chris Paul going right at him. There doesn't seem to be too much concern about his ankle after the game, so fully expect him to give it a go in a hometown game against the Warriors on Monday.
Dec 10 - 4:35 AM

Damian Lillard hit 10-of-23 shots and three 3-pointers for 30 points, eight rebounds and nine assists in 43 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Wizards.

Lillard is cooking and looks like one of the league's Top 5 point guards, averaging 27.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 2.4 3-pointers over his last five.
Dec 6 - 12:27 AM

Damian Lillard finished with 29 points, eight assists, five rebounds and a steal while turning it over just once across 40 minutes Saturday.

Lillard hit 11-of-25 field-goal attempts, including 4-of-11 from behind the arc. Dame has knocked down at least one triple in 12 straight outings, averaging 2.83 3-pointers per game during the impressive span. He continues to have a fantastic season, and he is locked in right now and adjusting nicely to playing off Shabazz Napier.
Dec 3 - 1:35 AM

Damian Lillard hit 10-of-20 shots, 1-of-6 3-pointers and 11-of-11 3-pointers on his way to 32 points, five assists and a steal in 38 minutes of Monday's 103-91 win over the Knicks.

Lillard is having a fantastic season and is particularly hot right now, averaging 29.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 2.8 3-pointers on 46 percent shooting over his last five. Just keep rolling him out there until further notice.
Nov 27 - 10:39 PM

Damian Lillard scored 29 points during a thrilling 108-105 win at Washington on Saturday, adding six rebounds, six assists, one block, five turnovers and two 3-pointers.

The Blazers erased a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter with C.J. McCollum also coming up large with his 26 total points. The Blazers continue to lean on three-guard lineups and it may stick based on their success with it. According to the Blazers broadcast, Lillard said he likes to play off Shabazz Napier to help get him going and take some pressure off him. The down side is it has slightly hurt his dimes in some games, but Lillard is hot with 29 points in at least three straight games. He's likely looking at first-round value at the end of the year.
Nov 25 - 9:49 PM

Damian Lillard scored 34 points with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers during a 127-125 Friday matinee win in Brooklyn.

It was almost reverse Lillard time with 30 points in the first three quarters and just four in the fourth in this win. In the last loss to the Nets on Nov. 10, Lillard stressed how the Blazers struggled against the smaller lineups, but this time they were ready to go and crushed the Nets when they went super small, including a 10-0 run in the second quarter. Lillard has also made 10 free throws in two of his last three games and this gem gets him over the 25 points-per-game plateau on the year.
Nov 24 - 3:20 PM

Damian Lillard played through his right ankle injury on Wednesday, posting 30 points with six 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

The injury didn't look good when it happened on Monday, but Lillard received treatment every day and said the ankle responded better than he anticipated. He's a gamer who often plays at less than 100 percent, and the playing time tonight proves he'll be fine going forward. He finished 11-of-27 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line.
Nov 22 - 10:14 PM

Damian Lillard (ankle) said he will play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

After he rolled his ankle on Monday, Lillard said he was going to get treatment and keep his ankle elevated on Monday night. He was not on the injury report coming into this game and it's not a surprise Dame is out there as one of the most durable players in the NBA. Fire him up, but he may have a tough matchup against the size on the 76ers.

Damian Lillard (ankle) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Lillard tweaked his ankle on Monday night, but he said he didn't expect to spend any time on the sidelines and his absence from the injury report suggests that will be the case. Owners can expect official confirmation following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it doesn't look like there's anything to worry about here.

Damian Lillard, who tweaked his ankle on Monday night, predicts that he won't miss any time with the injury.

"I'm playing," he said when asked about his status for Wednesday's game against the Sixers. He was able to start the second half of Monday's game and played well, finishing with 21 points and four assists on 5-of-15 shooting. Unless Lillard suffers a setback on Tuesday or Wednesday, we're guessing he'll be out there on Wednesday night.
