Meyers Leonard played 16 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday with eight points, five boards and one assist.

He missed five games due his ankle sprain and returns with the Blazers a bit shorthanded. Joel Freeland and Thomas Robinson are out with knee injuries, so Leonard could see minutes in the teens as a bench big man.

Meyers Leonard (ankle) will return from an ankle injury to play in Saturday night's game vs. the Nuggets.

He's been out for five games due to an ankle sprain and the timing couldn't have been worse for Leonard. His time in the sidelines coincided with LaMarcus Aldridge's time off, so he would have been way more involved in the rotation. He's not guaranteed to play tonight.
Mar 1 - 8:23 PM

The Blazers will update Meyers Leonard (ankle) on Saturday.

He was expected to miss 2-3 weeks back on Feb. 18, so the team should have an idea if he'll be able to return soon. LaMarcus Aldridge (groin) has a good chance to be back on Saturday, so Leonard probably won't have much of an impact upon his return.
Feb 28 - 3:28 PM

Meyers Leonard (ankle) will not travel for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

He has missed the last three games with his left ankle sprain and is expected to miss at least one more week. Leonard has lost playing time to Joel Freeman, so Thomas Robinson's game on Sunday probably won't help his case for minutes either.
Feb 24 - 3:34 PM

Meyers Leonard is expected to miss two to three weeks with a sprained left ankle.

Leonard, Joel Freeland and LaMarcus Aldridge are all out right now, meaning Thomas Robinson is going to be thrust into the lineup and rotation, making him worth a short-term look in all leagues.

Meyers Leonard received praise from coach Terry Stotts after his eight point, four rebound performance in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

Leonard played 13 minutes during the loss as he filled in for the injured Joel Freeland, who will miss the next four-to-eight weeks. "I was very pleased with Meyers," Stotts said. "He contributed in a way that kept him on the court. We went with a kind of shooting lineup, and he finished his opportunities. I thought he was good defensively. He battled. We were a plus when he was on the court." Leonard should see some extra playing time with Freeland out, but remains more of a deep league option for the time being.
Feb 13 - 12:03 PM

Meyers Leonard earned qualified praise from coach Terry Stotts after scoring two points and grabbing four rebounds in 10 minutes on Saturday.

"He did what we needed him to do," Stotts said. "He still needs to rebound better, but I was pleased with the way he played." Leonard's rebound rate has actually improved to 16.4 percent this season, which puts him just behind guys like Pau Gasol, Carlos Boozer and Anderson Varejao, so the Blazers are seeing some progress from Leonard. For what it's worth, starting center Robin Lopez has a rebound rate of just 15.1 percent.

Meyers Leonard was back in the rotation against the Pelicans on Saturday, playing 10 minutes for two points, four boards and one block.

Coach Terry Stotts said he would keep Leonard in the rotation and praised him for his rebounding efforts. He still has a long way to go and is behind Joel Freeland in the pecking order, so he can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.

Meyers Leonard was reinstated from his suspension on Wednesday and played five scoreless minutes in a loss to the Timberwolves.

Nothing to see here, in fantasy or reality.

Meyers Leonard and Daniel Orton were suspended one game for their altercation in Saturday's game.

It occurred in garbage time with the Blazers blowing out the Sixers. Leonard will not play in Sunday's game against the Pistons, but the Blazers won't miss him after his three DNP-CDs before Saturday's game. Joel Freeland will continue to back up Robin Lopez.

Meyers Leonard will not be activated for Monday's game against the Nets.

He is with the team, but the Blazers will keep him out for a little while longer. Leonard had an illness and has become the third-string center even before missing time.

As expected, Meyers Leonard (gastroenteritis) has joined the Blazers in Brooklyn for Monday's game.

He should be in uniform, even if he's regaining his strength after a nasty illness. It's good news for the Blazers but has no impact for fantasy owners given his marginal role behind Robin Lopez and Joel Freeland.
Mon, Nov 18, 2013 11:43:00 AM

Meyers Leonard (gastroenteritis) is feeling better and he's expected to join the Blazers in Brooklyn on Sunday.

Joel Freeland has emerged as Robin Lopez's primary backup, which leaves last year's No. 11 draft pick with a negligible role off the bench.
Sat, Nov 16, 2013 03:57:00 PM

Blazers reserve center Meyers Leonard (gastroenteritis) did not make the trip to Boston for Friday's game.

He was also out on Wednesday, but is hoping to join the team in Brooklyn for Monday's game. Robin Lopez is playing very well and Leonard has nearly fallen out of the rotation, so this has no fantasy implications.
