F - POR - OUT
Per the Portland Trailblazers, an MRI has confirmed that forward Nassir Little has a torn labrum in his shoulder. The team has not set an official timeline yet, but Little is looking at an extended absence.
Naz Little had been putting up a solid 9.8 points and 5.6 rebounds so it will be a tough loss for Portland. With Dame Lillard also out indefinitely, it would not be a surprise to see the Blazers be major sellers at the deadline. There should be a lot of shake-up in Portland.
Nassir Little will miss Wednesday's matchup with the Mavericks as he deals with a shoulder injury.
Little has been a consistent part of the Blazers' starting lineup as they deal with injuries to Damian Lillard and Norman Powell. However, with Powell recently returning, he should slide right back into the starting lineup to replace the now-injured Little.
Nassir Little tallied 19 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3PT), seven rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes of Portland's 114-105 win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Little also played a team-high 39 minutes on Sunday, which contributed to his big night from a production standpoint. However, Little needs more consistency to be a reliable fantasy player.
Nassir Little tallied 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3PT), 10 rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes of the Blazers' 98-88 win over Orlando on Monday.
Little had one of his best nights this season on the boards, but he hasn't found much consistency filling up the stat sheet. He does not need to be rostered in fantasy.
Nassir Little scored 18 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3PT) and grabbed one rebound in 29 minutes of the Blazers' 115-110 win over the Wizards on Saturday.
Little provides some scoring upside for fantasy owners, but he doesn't have much consistency when it comes to filling up the stat sheet. He can be left on waivers.
