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. Dec 20 - 9:12 AM

Damian Lillard was outstanding in the Blazers' triple-overtime win in San Antonio on Friday, scoring a career-high 43 points on 16-of-29 shooting (4-of-9 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in 53 minutes.

Lillard stole the show late and his mid first-round value is a solid return on his second round ADP. LaMarcus Aldridge went for 32 and 16 with five steals, two blocks, and a three, and Wesley Matthews scored 16 points on 5-of-19 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and two threes for the shorthanded Blazers.
Dec 20 - 1:57 AM

Damian Lillard made 10-of-18 from the field for 29 points with three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes during a 104-97 victory over the Bucks.

After a brief slump, Lillard is getting hot again. Over his last four games, he's averaged 26.3 points, 5.3 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.0 triples on 48.1 percent from the field and 89.5 percent from the line. Lillard still hasn't missed a single game in his NBA career and is averaging 2.5 treys per game in his career, too. He's a No. 1 fantasy point guard.

Damian Lillard scored 23 points on 8-of-18 shooting with a career-high 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one three and 6-of-6 makes from the foul line in Monday's 108-95 win over the Spurs on Monday.

Lillard is crushing first round value and turning a nice profit for owners that picked him in the second round on draft day.
Dec 16 - 2:47 AM

Damian Lillard set season-highs for scoring (35 points) and 3-pointers (seven) in Friday's loss to the Bulls, hitting 13-of-21 shots with five rebounds and six assists.

Lillard is rocking a No. 7 ranking in 8-cat leagues after this gem and he's a top-30 play in 9-cat formats. LaMarcus Aldridge was the story early in the game with a 21-point first quarter, and he finished with 35 and nine in the loss.
Dec 12 - 10:13 PM

Damian Lillard finished Tuesday's road victory with 14 points, five rebounds, six assists and two steals, while committing two turnovers in 35 minutes vs. the Pistons.

Lillard made 6-of-14 field goals and doesn't seem overly bothered by the splint that protects his two injured fingers, though he admitted he's still adjusting to playing with it. Fantasy owners can simply keep him active while hoping that his hand heals quickly.
Dec 9 - 10:12 PM

Damian Lillard (fingers) said he's adjusting to wearing a splint/wrap on his two sprained fingers.

"When I shoot the ball, I roll the ball off my fingertips," Lillard said. "So with the splints and it being wrapped up, I kind of couldn't feel the ball until it got to my fingertips. So it was hard to shoot a forceful shot and to shoot a shot with somebody really guarding me. It was kind of tough to gather it and get a quality shot as far as how it felt." Lillard said his fingers were fine, but the splint is awkward and he's attempting to adjust. If Lillard puts up a few more sub-standard shooting displays like the 5-of-16 on Sunday, you'll know why. "I think it's going to take a little bit of adjusting, a little bit of time," Lillard said.
Dec 8 - 1:47 PM

Damian Lillard (fingers) shot 5-of-16 from the field on Sunday but he made two 3-pointers and went 8-of-9 at the FT line to finish with 20 points.

Lillard is wearing a protective cover on his right hand to avoid further damage and it may have affected his shooting, but he isn't in danger of missing any games. He added five rebounds, two assists, one steal and only one turnover in Portland's road win, improving their record to an impressive 16-4.
Dec 7 - 10:48 PM

Damian Lillard will wear covers on his two injured fingers for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

Well, at least something is going to cover him today. Lillard should have success against Jose Calderon, so make sure he's in your lineup.
Dec 7 - 6:00 PM

Damian Lillard (fingers) will play in Sunday's game against the Knicks.

He has a couple of sprained fingers, and should be fine moving forward. It will be interesting to see if his shooting will be affected, but he does have a favorable matchup against Jose Calderon and the Knicks. It wouldn't hurt to check back prior to tip-off, but it looks like Lillard is all set to play and should be in all lineups.
Dec 7 - 10:37 AM

Damian Lillard was diagnosed with sprains of his right middle and ring finger, but he will play through it against the Knicks on Sunday.

There is no word of a tear and this sounds like good news for the Blazers. Lillard should get a chance to destroy Jose Calderon like how Kyrie Irving did on Thursday, so make sure he's in your lineup for that game.
Dec 5 - 7:42 PM

Damian Lillard is having another right hand examination on Friday.

The X-rays were negative, but Lillard's hand was bent awkwardly and the team may give him an MRI to check on the ligaments. Even if an MRI does bring bad news, players have been able to play in games with torn ligaments, so Lillard owners shouldn't be panicking. We expect him to suit up for Sunday against the Knicks. If something is wrong, Steve Blake would start.
Dec 5 - 3:30 PM

Damian Lillard had his right hand x-rayed following Thursday's game, but they came back clean and Lillard said he'll be "fine."

Lillard has yet to miss a single game throughout his three-year career, so it appears that he'll be fine for Sunday's game vs. New York. Lillard is having another fantastic season this, averaging 19.9 points, 6.5 assists, and 2.6 three-pointers per game, while hitting career-highs in field goal percentage (46.3) and steals (1.5). He's currently putting up first-round value, and his scoring will likely rise as the season goes on. Enjoy the ride.
Dec 5 - 10:53 AM

Damian Lillard had his right hand examined due to a minor injury and he is fine, according to coach Terry Stotts.

His right ring finger looked to be jammed, but Lillard seems to have dodged a bullet. His fantasy owners might want to keep their eyes peeled heading into the weekend, but there's little reason to be concerned about a guy who has yet to miss an NBA game. Lillard played well against the Pacers on Thursday with 23 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
Dec 5 - 12:37 AM

Damian Lillard (illness) finished Sunday's game with 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting, adding eight assists, three steals, one block and just one turnover in a win vs. the visiting Timberwolves.

Minnesota's defense is among the league's worst by almost every metric, so Lillard's illness is likely part of the reason he shot just 6-of-14 from the field and 1-of-7 from downtown. He was also just 4-of-7 from the FT line, which is almost unheard of -- he came in as one of the league's leading FT shooters at 91.4 percent.
