Damian Lillard Out For Remainder Of Season
Damian Lillard has been shut down for the remainder of the season, sources tell Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report.
The Portland Trail Blazers have faded from the play-in picture with a disappointing second half.
With Lillard out for the season, the Blazers could finish with as low as the fifth pick in the draft. Portland sits on 32 wins along with the Orlando Magic, while the Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards each have 33 wins.
Shams Charania of The Athletic reported earlier on Tuesday that Lillard and the Blazers will have “serious conversations about what’s next” after yet another disappointing season.
