The Portland Trail Blazers will have Damian Lillard when they face the Philadelphia 76ers in Oregon on Saturday evening. 

The All-Star point guard had been questionable with an abdominal injury, but will be active and play in the game. 

The status of Lillard for the game can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from the Twitter account of FantasyLabs NBA. 

Coming into the game, the Trail Blazers have had a slow start to the 2021-22 NBA season. 

Sure, they are .500 with an 8-8 record through the first 16 games, but they do not look anything close to a contender in a deep Western Conference. 

After losing in the first round of the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, this year will be a pivotal one for the franchise going forward. 

The 76ers come into the game with a 9-7 record.
