Wesley Matthews on knee scare: "I'm good"

After starting the same line-up for 53 games, the Trail Blazers have been forced to play short handed since the mythical beginning to the "second half" of the season, coming out of the All-Star break. Freeland (knee), LA (groin), Leonard (ankle), and Robinson (patella tendon) have all missed games, stretching the Blazers lineup to where Victor Claver not only saw extended...

Claver will continue to fight, but when time's right, he'll exhaust all options to receive minutes

When you observe Victor Claver’s game, you’ll notice that he looks the part of an outright basketball stud. At 6-9 he’s quick, athletic, can put the ball on the floor and his shooting form is textbook. The problem is he hasn’t been able to put it all together on the court. In 16 games this season, he has only appeared in three for a total of four minutes after competing...

Portland Trail Blazers Bench Players Logging Valuable Minutes

There has been a lot of discussion about the Portland Trail Blazers bench or lack thereof this season. It was no secret heading into the 2012-13 campaign that this was going to be a sore spot for this Blazer team.

POTD 1/1/13: Amare Stoudemire on Victor Claver

As I pointed out in today’s Starting Lineup post, Amare Stoudemire’s return to the floor could’ve gone better.  That said, it could’ve gone worse, too.  While it would’ve been completely unreasonable to expect a player to sit out 30 consecutive games and come back to dominate, it wouldn’t have been unreasonable to presume STAT would need more than a game or two to regain...

Blazers shore up forward position

The most pressing needs for the Portland Trail Blazers as they move through the summer are at point guard and power forward. The early focus has been on moves to fortify the frontcourt. The Blazers have signed one European forward (Victor Claver) and will soon sign another (Joel Freeland). And there were unsubstantiated reports that J.J Hickson, a restricted free agent who finished...

Claver and Valencia agree on release, moves a step closer to joining the Portland Trail Blazers

As the Portland Trail Blazers wait until July 11 to match Nicolas Batum’s 4-year, $45 million offer from the Minnesota Timberwolves, they continue to consider their options at swing guard and may finally dip into their “draft and stash” pot to get what they need. On Friday, Blazers draftee Victor Claver moved a step closer to joining Portland when it was announced he and Valencia...
