Fantasy Basketball Infirmary: Week 13 Injury Analysis

Little was known about the severity of LaMarcus Aldridge’s thumb injury when he missed Wednesday’s game. I was texting with Razzball’s own JB about the Blazers and JB voiced his concern that Aldridge would “be out a while.” After undergoing another MRI on Thursday, the Trail Blazers announced that Aldridge would be out 6-8 weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb. ...

Which Portland Trail Blazers prospect has the highest upside entering 2014-15 NBA season?

Youth and Potential When you look at the Portland Trail Blazers roster entering the 2014-15 NBA season, it’s clear that there’s a monumental disparity between what the starters have done and what the bench has done in the recent past.

’13 Free Agents: What Did We Miss?

When the 76ers began the 2013 off season, the immediate future looked somewhat positive.  With All-Star point man Jrue Holiday leading the way as well as solid veterans like Thad Young, Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner on the roster, the franchise had a respectable core to build around. Add the #11 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, factor in the removal of the burnt out Doug Collins and...

Portland Trail Blazers Look To Reignite Past The Break

The Trail Blazers have had a tale of two seasons already.  A first quarter of the season where Portland shot threes at a record-breaking pace, and climbed into the top two of a loaded Western Conference.  This magic was followed by a quarter where the bench tapered off and the starters were run ragged into the break.  The Portland starters have played more minutes than any other...
