Portland Trail Blazers

Western Northwest

Damian Lillard put in 14 points, eight dimes and four rebounds in 39 minutes of game action on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Lillard went just 3-for-14 from the field on the night, a performance that Dame cannot give in the playoffs with his top two sidekicks out for the time-being. The Blazers seem locked into a 4-5 matchup with the Jazz, who gets home-court between the two is still up for grabs though.

Mo Harkless put in 10 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks, two dimes and a steal in 26 minutes of floor time on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Harkless' first double-double in over a month and the veteran was able to stuff the stat sheet too, swiping a steal for the seventh straight contest. The St. John's product also has four blocks in his last two games.

Enes Kanter put in 20 points, 15 rebounds and a pair of steals in 34 minutes of game action on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Kanter has stepped in as the main threat in Portland's front-court after the devastating injury Jusuf Nurkic suffered earlier this week. If he's still available, scoop him up because he'll be having a big April with Nurkic out indefinitely.

Seth Curry pours in 20 again

Seth Curry contributed 20 points, three rebounds and two dimes in 24 minutes of floor time on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Curry has now dropped 20 points in three of his past four outings and is showing that he can definitely be a solid replacement for CJ McCollum while the latter remains out. Curry is worth an add right now while he's hot.

Zach Collins put in 13 points, three rebounds, two dimes and two blocks in 25 minutes of game action on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Collins has now scored in double-digits in back-to-back games. He may be in line for a few more opportunities with Nurkic out indefinitely but don't pull the trigger on Collins just yet.

Rodney Hood put in 15 points, two rebounds, two dimes and one block in 24 minutes of game action on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Hood has played well over his past couple of outings but he didn't play so well the previous two. He relies heavily on his scoring and he hasn't been consistent enough in that regard to warrant an add.

Al-Farouq Aminu put in 12 points, 11 rebounds, one dime and one steal in 23 minutes of game action on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Aminu's first double-double in over a month, though his defensive stats have been lacking lately. Aminu should be left on the wire for now.

Jusuf Nurkic suffered a severe leg injury when he landed after getting fouled grabbing a rebound in the second overtime on Monday against the Nets. He suffered a fractured left leg and will be out the rest of the season. (Source: Joe Freeman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is a big blow to the Blazers and will force fantasy owners to scramble for a new big man the last couple of weeks of the season. Enes Kanter figures to be the big winner as he moves into more minutes and fantasy production. Zach Collins should also get some extra run the last couple of weeks.

CJ McCollum (knee) will not join his teammates on Portland's upcoming four-game roadie. (Source: Casey Holdahl on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McCollum will be out for at least a week and a half and there is talk he may not even be ready by the time the playoffs jump off. Also no reason for the Blazers to rush him back with Seth Curry subbing in capably. The lesser Curry is worth a look while CJ is out.

Evan Turner had three rebounds, two assists and one steal against the Pistons on Saturday, but he did not score.

Fantasy Impact: Turner played 13 minutes and did not attempt a shot. Turner should be left on the wire indefinitely.

In 13 minutes of play, Jake Layman had just two points on 2-of-4 free-throws against the Pistons on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Layman missed his lone shot from the field during a disappointing night. Seth Curry contributed 16 points off the bench, and it will be interesting to see if the slumping Layman draws the next start should CJ McCollum (knee) continue to miss time.

Anfernee Simons had five points and hit the first three-pointer of his career against the Suns on Saturday. Damian Lillard assisted on the memorable three-point shot.

Fantasy Impact: Simons played nine minutes and shot 2-of-5 from the floor. He connected on 1-of-3 shots from behind the arc. Trail Blazers fans hope that the athletic 19-year-old from Florida develops into a special player.

Meyers Leonard grabbed one rebound in his lone minute of play against the Thunder on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Leonard has fallen out of the rotation as of late. He should not be owned for fantasy purposes.

Nik Stauskas has been traded to the Cavaliers in the Rodney Hood deal. Stauskas and Wade Baldwin will go to Cleveland in exchange for Hood while the Blazers also send two future second-round picks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Stauskas joins a crowded backcourt in Cleveland with Alec Burks, Jordan Clarkson, David Nwaba, Cedi Osman, and Kobi Simmons. Stauskas should be left on the waiver wire.

Wade Baldwin has been traded to the Cavaliers in exchange for F Rodney Hood. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Baldwin will be playing behind Collie Sexton and Matt Dellevadova in Cleveland so he could be a DNP-CD more often than not.
