G - POR - OUT
According to Blake Murphy, Damian Lillard is listed as out Sunday vs the Raptors.
Damian Lillard remains out following his abdominal surgery. Anfernee Simons will continue to soak up the minutes in Lillard's absence.
Damian Lillard is planning to have surgery in the near future to address a lingering abdominal injury.
The procedure isn't expected to be season-ending but that is to be determined. In an injury-riddled season, Lillard has missed 11 games so far this year.
Damian Lillard recorded 18 points (5-15 FG, 1-8 3PT), seven assists and four rebounds in 32 minutes of Portland's 139-106 loss to the Lakers on Friday.
Lillard played just three quarters, as the Lakers were blowing out the Trailblazers in the fourth. He is subject to inefficient shooting nights like Friday from time to time, but he can still be started with confidence in fantasy.
Damian Lillard tallied 32 points (10-23 FG, 5-14 3PT), six rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes of Portland's 120-105 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.
Most of Lillard's fantasy production this season has been thanks to the amount of shots that he takes. Lillard shot the ball 23 times on Wednesday, including 14 times from beyond the arc. This opportunity will continue to give him great fantasy value and a massive ceiling going forward.
Damian Lillard recorded 26 points (5-15 FG, 3-8 3PT), five assists and two rebounds in 36 minutes of Portland's 132-117 loss to the Mavericks on Monday.
Lillard will be subject to inefficient shooting nights like this occasionally. but that is to be expected with the amount of shots he takes in this offense. He remains a top option at his position thanks to his upside and high usage rate.
