  • Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Leaves early with bruised hip

    Badji won't return to Friday's game against Minnesota due to a right hip contusion. He finished with two points (1-1 FG), six rebounds and one block in nine minutes.

    Badji has been picking up the backup center minutes behind Duop Reath while Deandre Ayton (knee) has been sidelined. If Badji is forced to miss additional time and if Ayton isn't ready to play in Sunday's game against the Suns, Portland could turn to Jabari Walker as the primary backup to Reath.

  • Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Unavailable Wednesday

    Badji (recently signed) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Badji's absence was to be expected considering he signed a two-way deal with Portland earlier Wednesday. While he won't be ready in time for Wednesday's tilt, he'll have a few days to get acclimated with the Blazers before they take on the Bucks on Sunday.

  • Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Returns to Portland on two-way pact

    Badji agreed to a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Badji previously signed a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers last November, but he didn't make an appearance at the NBA level for the club before undergoing an arthroscopic patellar chondroplasty and debridement surgery on his left knee in March. Portland brought him back on another two-way deal in July, only to waive him in October and give his spot to another player. The 7-foot-1 center will now rejoin Portland after the Trail Blazers waived guard Jamaree Bouyea on Wednesday to reopen one of their three two-way spots.

  • Ibou Badji: Waived by Portland

    Badji was waived by the Trail Blazers on Monday, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.

    Badji joined the Trail Blazers on a two-way contract last November but didn't make his NBA debut and underwent season-ending knee surgery in early March. While he returned to full health during the offseason, he was unable to make the team's final roster and will be let go after Portland signed Duop Reath to a two-way deal Monday.

  • Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Moves past knee issue

    Badji (knee) has played in all four of the Trail Blazers' Las Vegas Summer League games to date, averaging 3.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.3 assists in 19.5 minutes.

    After signing a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers last November, Badji never got the chance to make his NBA debut before he underwent season-ending surgery on his sore left knee March 7. Now healthy four months later, Badji had his two-way contract renewed earlier in July and has put his 7-foot-1, 240-pound frame to good use as a rim protector in Las Vegas. The Trail Blazers are lacking in established frontcourt depth behind starting center Jusuf Nurkic, so Badji could have a shot at cracking the Trail Blazers' rotation to open the season if the front office doesn't elect to bring in any other veteran big men.

  • Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Returns on two-way deal

    The Trail Blazers signed Badji (knee) to a one-year, two-way contract Thursday, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.

    Badji and John Butler will take up two of Portland's three two-way roster spots this season. Badji didn't make any NBA appearances in 2022-23 and underwent season-ending surgery on his left knee in March.

  • Trail Blazers' Ibou Badji: Has surgery, out for regular season

    Portland announced that Badji underwent arthroscopic patellar chondroplasty and debridement surgery on his left knee Monday and is expected to miss at least eight weeks.

    Badji signed a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers in November, but he never made his NBA debut prior to the knee injury cropping up in January. The rookie will now officially miss the rest of the regular season while rehabbing from surgery, and it's unlikely he'll be able to garner a rotational role if Portland were still alive in the playoffs if the eight-week recovery timeline proves accurate.
