Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Considered day-to-day
Simons (thumb) practiced Monday and is considered day-to-day, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.
Simons recorded 18 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Portland's regular-season opener. He was then labeled as probable for the team's ensuing game due to a right thumb sprain. However, the injury wound up being more serious than initially anticipated, and he ultimately underwent surgery Oct. 31 to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb. He was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, but it appears he could return closer to the front end of that timeline. Simons' official status for Wednesday's matchup versus the Warriors remains to be determined, but his return to game action appears imminent, barring setbacks.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Jerami Grant: Placed in concussion protocol
Portland placed Grant in the concussion protocol Monday.
Grant took a shot to the head during the fourth quarter of Saturday's game versus the Jazz and never returned. While he hasn't officially been ruled out, Grant should be considered doubtful, at best, for Wednesday's game against the Warriors. Assuming Grant misses time, Portland could give Jabari Walker an extended look.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Scoot Henderson: Logs best game since injury
Henderson totaled 17 points (6-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Saturday's 118-113 overtime loss to the Jazz.
Henderson's shot volume increased dramatically Saturday His return from the ankle injury is coming along, but he'll need to show dramatic improvement to get back into the starting lineup. Malcolm Brogdon's stint with the first unit has yielded superb results, and although the team views Henderson as the point guard of the future, the Trail Blazers also desperately need to string some wins together....

Trail Blazers' Jerami Grant: Sharp regression in OT loss
Grant amassed nine points (1-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds and one block in 26 minutes during Saturday's 118-113 overtime loss to Utah.
Grant turned in his worst scoring performance of the season during Saturday's loss. Although he was perfect from the charity stripe, only one of his nine shot attempts found the bottom of the basket. Solid perimeter shooting is a hallmark of his game, but he shot a goose-egg beyond the arc for only the second time this season. His value as an offensive engine for the Trail Blazers is unquestioned, but totaling only 22 points over the past two games is concerning.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Malcolm Brogdon: Turns in 25 points
Brogdon finished with 25 points (8-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals across 38 minutes during Saturday's 118-113 overtime loss to the Jazz.
Brogdon matched Shaedon Sharpe with a team-high 25-point effort, and his wealth of experience is currently giving him the edge over Scoot Henderson, who continues to work his way back from injury. Although the team handed Henderson the keys to begin the season, Brogdon was added to provide much-needed experience during the rebuild. His acquisition has paid off, as the loss of Henderson and Anfernee Simons (thumb) opened the door for the former Boston standout. Simons' return will reshuffle the lineup somewhat, but Brogdon's fantasy value should remain high through mid-December.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Scoot Henderson: Comes off bench again in win
Henderson put up two points (1-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt), seven assists and one rebound in 22 minutes during Thursday's 103-95 win over the Cavaliers.
In his four appearances since returning to action from his nine-game absence, Henderson has come off the bench, averaging 22.0 minutes, 7.8 points, 4.0 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 0.3 steals while shooting a paltry 31.4 percent from the floor. The highly touted rookie has certainly endured some inconsistency to start the season, but it's possible the Trail Blazers could insert him back into the starting lineup as they prioritize their future....

Trail Blazers' Jabari Walker: Big night on glass
Walker supplied six points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes during Thursday's 103-95 win over Cleveland.
The dozen boards were a career high for Walker, but it's just the second time in 18 games this season he's reached double digits in that category. The 2022 second-round pick isn't supplying consistent production yet, but he's played at least 14 minutes off the bench in 12 straight games as he helps fill in for Robert Williams (knee), averaging 8.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.7 threes in just 19.2 minutes per game. Should anything happen to remove Jerami Grant from the frontcourt picture, Walker's fantasy value could skyrocket.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Duop Reath: Pops for 13 in Thursday's win
Reath provided 13 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 18 minutes during Thursday's 103-95 win over the Cavaliers.
The 27-year-old rookie seems to enjoy playing against Cleveland -- the two biggest scoring performances of his NBA career have come versus the Cavs, as he dropped 16 points on them back on Nov. 15. Reath has seen consistent minutes in the Blazers' frontcourt rotation since Robert Williams (knee) was lost for the season, but Reath hasn't yet supplied much fantasy value beyond his three-point shooting....

Trail Blazers' Shaedon Sharpe: Big double-double against Cavs
Sharpe chipped in 29 points (11-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 39 minutes during Thursday's 103-95 victory over the Cavaliers.
The second-year guard led all scorers on the night as he tied his season highs in points and made three-pointers while delivering his first double-double. Sharpe has only failed to score in double digits once so far in 2023-24, and the 20-year-old has taken full advantage of Damian Lillard's departure and a thumb injury to Anfernee Simons. Simons is aiming for a mid-December return, which could cut into Sharpe's usage, but having some reliable help in the backcourt aside from Malcolm Brogdon -- rookie Scoot Henderson is shooting just 33.3 percent from the floor -- might also boost his efficiency....

Trail Blazers' Jerami Grant: Dominates in narrow win
Grant finished Monday's 114-110 win over the Pacers with 34 points (12-18 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks over 38 minutes.
Grant was efficient from the field and scored at least 30 points for the third time this season. He also tied his season high with three blocks and notched his third-highest rebound total. Over the past four matchups, Grant has averaged 28.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks in 36.3 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Shaedon Sharpe: Season-high three steals
Sharpe produced 11 points (4-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, six assists and three steals across 35 minutes during Monday's 114-110 victory over the Pacers.
Sharpe produced a season-high three steals in the win while scoring in double figures for a fourth straight game. Despite continuing to be a somewhat reliable source of points, Sharpe's efficiency remains an issue. He is shooting 39.1 percent for the season, but over the past two weeks, that is down to 32.4 percent. He remains a viable standard league asset as long as his poor shooting can be swallowed....

Trail Blazers' Matisse Thybulle: Fails to score in win
Thybulle produced zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, one block and one steal across 29 minutes during Monday's 114-110 win over Indiana.
Thybulle missed both of his shot attempts, failing to score despite playing 29 minutes. While he did manage to add a steal and a block, this has to be chalked up as another underwhelming night. As has been the case for the past few years, Thybulle should be viewed as nothing more than a defensive stream option.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Toumani Camara: Limited again despite start
Camara registered five points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds over 17 minutes during Monday's 114-110 victory over the Pacers.
Camara started for the eighth consecutive game, yet struggled to make any sort of real impact. Despite starting, his playing time was under 20 minutes for the third time in the past five games. Since being elevated to the opening unit, Camara has been well outside the top 200 in standard leagues, making him a non-factor outside of very deep formats.... See More ... See Less
