  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Returns with 20 points in loss

    Simons logged 20 points (6-19 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, five assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Tuesday's 121-109 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Simons was a welcome addition to the starting lineup amid the rash of backcourt injuries. Although Simons converted four three-pointers, he shot only 31.5 percent from the floor and may need a game or two to get back on track. Simons and the rest of the backcourt will get extra time to heal during the All-Star break.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Should return Tuesday

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Sitting out Saturday

    Simons (ankle) won't play in Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

    Simons sprained his left ankle in Thursday's overtime loss to the Pistons and wasn't able to return to the game. The severity of the sprain hasn't been disclosed, but with Simons out for at least one contest, the Trail Blazers will turn to Scoot Henderson (foot) and Malcolm Brogdon (illness) as their primary creators out of the backcourt if both are available to play through their own health concerns. If one or both of Henderson and Brogdon join Simons in street clothes, Portland would likely give 10-day signee Ashton Hagans another extended look as the team's point guard.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Exits early with ankle sprain

    Simons didn't return to Thursday's 128-122 overtime loss to the Pistons due to a left ankle sprain. He finished with 29 points (9-19 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes.

    Simons was seen with ice wrapped around his ankle in the fourth quarter of Thursday's matchup, and he was unavailable down the stretch. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available Saturday against the Pelicans.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Questionable to return Thursday

    Simons is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Pistons due to a left ankle sprain.

    It's unclear when Simons suffered the injury, but he was spotted on the bench during the fourth quarter with ice wrapped around his ankle, so the chances of him returning are slim. Losing Simons would represent a huge blow for the Blazers on offense, and if he doesn't return Thursday, then his next chance to play would come against the Pelicans on Saturday.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Volume scoring continues

    Simons provided 26 points (8-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Nuggets. He also had four turnovers.

    Simons punished Denver in a road back-to-back, accumulating 55 points on 19-for-41 shooting across the set, although the Nuggets emerged victorious in both games. Simons has knocked down four triples in three straight games, bringing his season average to 39.1 percent on 8.7 threes per game.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Pours in 29 points during loss

    Simons notched 29 points (11-23 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals over 37 minutes during Friday's 120-108 loss to the Nuggets.

    Portlands's backcourt shifted into high gear to account for Jerami Grant's absence due to a back injury, as Simons and Scoot Henderson had excellent showings in the defeat. The Trail Blazers utilized a three-guard combo anchored by Deandre Ayton for most of the game, and Simons took a seat only twice over 37 minutes. Although his numbers have jumped around a bit, he's averaged 23.5 points, 5.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds since a one-game absence two weeks ago.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Scores team-high 24 points in win

    Simons ended with 24 points (10-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt), three rebounds and five assists over 38 minutes during Wednesday's 119-116 victory over Milwaukee.

    Simons enjoyed a productive night as he faced off against Damian Lillard, who was greeted with much fanfare during his first game in Portland since the trade to Milwaukee. Lillard's departure has led to a backcourt rebuild, but Simons is the remaining vestige of the old roster at the off-guard spot and despite dealing with injuries to begin the 2023-24 campaign, his results have been remarkably similar to last year, although he's averaging about one point higher in points, rebounds and assists.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Salvages poor shooting with dimes

    Simons ended Sunday's 104-96 loss to Chicago with 11 points (4-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and eight assists over 35 minutes.

    Simons was downright awful from the field, but he salvaged his fantasy performance by putting up solid numbers in both the rebounding and passing categories. Simons has struggled with consistency and efficiency of late, but he's still finding a way to put up decent numbers when called upon duty. Even including Sunday's poor outing, he's averaging 19.9 points, 4.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game across his last 10 appearances.

    Simons joins Malcolm Brogdon (knee), Jerami Grant (back), Jabari Walker (knee) and Scoot Henderson (quad) as questionable for the first leg of the Trail Blazers back-to-back set.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Ruled out Friday

    Simons (illness) will not play in Friday's game against the Pacers, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Simons played through an illness Wednesday and a saw a whopping 39 minutes, but he won't be able to take the floor against Indiana. In his place, the Trail Blazers will start Matisse Thybulle, with Malcolm Brogdon running the point. Simons should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Listed as questionable

    Simons (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Simons is in jeopardy of missing his second straight contest after sitting out Friday's game against the Pacers. Portland could potentially be very shorthanded, as Scoot Henderson (nasal contusion) is also questionable. Malcolm Brogdon could be looking at a significant workload as a result.

  • Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Still dealing with illness

    Simons is questionable for Friday's game against Indiana due to an illness.

    Simons was questionable for Wednesday's game against Brooklyn due to a "general illness," but he suited up and played 39 minutes in the two-point win, posting 20 points (8-20 FG), four rebounds and four assists. He wasn't included on Portland's initial injury report for Friday's game, so his late addition is concerning, though it'd be surprising if he didn't suit up again.
