What The NBA Has Lost Due To Injuries

With 26 games left in the season, it seems like the Portland Trail Blazers are as close to full strength as they have been all year. The big man in the middle, Robin Lopez is back after missing 23 games, and he has changed the team’s defensive mindset. LaMarcus Aldridge decided to tough out a left thumb injury and play the rest of the season despite the recommendation of surgery...

Spurs-Trail Blazers Preview

Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 2/24

If you heard a dull thud near downtown Portland, that was the Portland Trail Blazers after the first two games post-All-Star break. First, they barely reached 70 against the rebuilding Utah Jazz, then they got their hearts ripped out–again–by the Memphis Grizzlies in a close game, gagging away a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter. The common theme in those games is a total lack...

Portland's Aldridge out Sunday against Memphis

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge was out of the Portland Trail Blazers' lineup against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night because of a right thumb sprain.

Trail Blazers-Jazz Preview

Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews are constants on the court for a Portland Trail Blazers team that continues to rely heavily on big minutes from its starting lineup. Portland is hoping the arrival of Arron Afflalo will provide the backcourt duo with more breaks as the rest of that unit hopefully gets healthier. The Blazers seek a fifth victory in six tries while looking to win...

A Plea To All 12s – Support The Portland Trail Blazers

All-Star Week shenanigans proved to be fairly productive and immaterial to the Portland Trail Blazers. Though LaMarcus Aldridge was the first Blazer to start an All-Star Game since Clyde Drexler in 1994, and though he and Damian Lillard both had unusually good games considering the All-Star format (Aldridge in particular looked smooth in the first quarter, draining two three-pointers...

Portland Trail Blazers trade rumors: Potential targets

With three days left until the NBA trade deadline, could the Portland Trail Blazers make a move? The team has a chance to make a deep playoff run if it stays healthy- the key word being healthy. LaMarcus Aldridge has already incurred a thumb injury with half the season left to go, so a hint of worry is natural in Rip City. It doesn’t help that the 2015 Western Conference seems...

Blazers have same record as last year at the All-Star break

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Trail Blazers are 36-17, the same record they had at last year's All-Star break. But the feeling this time is more of relief than congratulation. After a fast start, with just four losses in the first 21 games, Portland was hit by injuries. Its starters have missed a combined 35 games. Still, the Blazers lead the Northwest Division and are tied for third...

Blazers’ Aldridge forgot how to properly inbound the ball

I thought the All-Star game was a collection of the best players in the league, who do everything better than the rest of the players who aren’t playing in the annual event. You know, they score the ball better, rebound better, pass the ball better and oh I don’t know, inbound the ball better. So what happened to the Blazers’ LaMarcus Aldridge when he TRIED to inbound the ball...

The Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Break Award Show Spectacular

At the same time, we’re also in the heart of award season in Hollywood, with the Grammy’s just getting handed out, and the Oscars around the corner. Being Portland...

The Portland Trail Blazers, along with the rest of the NBA, are headed to the NBA All-Star break. This is a great time for the team to regroup – just go home, relax, and see their families.

Portland Trail Blazers Success May Ultimately Hinge On Nicolas Batum’s Health

For years, Nicolas Batum has been part of the Portland Trail Blazers winning ways, but in a quieter fashion than was originally expected of him upon entering the league in 2008. Despite his inability to live up to the lofty projections as a potential All-Star worthy scorer and defensive stopper–I myself thought he had a more than just a little Scottie Pippen in him–it didn...
