Portland Trail Blazers
With the Blazers trading CJ McCollum, Norman Powell, and Robert Covington (among others) many assumed Portland was raising the white flag on the season.
If that was the front office’s goal they forgot to tell the players who’ve registered three consecutive wins. And while the Blazers season hasn’t gone according to plan there have been pleasant surprises rising out of their misfortune.
Anfernee Simons leaped at his opportunity to play more when Damian Lillard was initially sidelined and in my opinion, his ascent made it easy for Portland to trade McCollum and Powell because he could fill one of those two starting spots when Dame returns.
He led the way in the victory versus the Bucks scoring 31 points with all five starters reaching double-digits as well while Jusuf Nurkic posted a double-double of 23 points and 16 rebounds along with four assists.
Eric Bledsoe (Achilles) Dennis Smith Jr. (elbow), and Keon Johnson (ankle) were all downgraded to out Wednesday. Didi Louzada Silva (knee) and Damian Lillard (abdominal) are out indefinitely. Joe Ingles (ACL) and Nassir Little (shoulder) are out for the season.
As Ja Morant prepares for his first start at an All-Star Game he does so nursing an ankle sprain. Memphis sat him out on Tuesday but as the Grizzlies have done all season the next man stepped up.
Six players scored in double-figures led by Morant’s starting replacement Tyus Jones who collected 27 points, nine assists, a rebound, and a steal.
The Grizzlies bigs all had a solid showing with Steven Adams posting a double-double of 14 points and 13 rebounds, Jaren Jackson Jr. offering 23 points and seven rebounds while Brandon Clarke delivered 18 points and eight rebounds.
Ja Morant (ankle), Yves Pons (thigh), and Xavier Tillman (thigh) are all questionable to play Wednesday versus the Blazers. Dillon Brooks (ankle) remains out.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies can’t afford to take the Blazers for granted especially since they are the team who played the night prior.
Although Morant is listed as questionable it won’t be surprising if Memphis elects to give him a few more days off so he can excel in the big game – after all, you only get to make your All-Star starting debut once!
I think the Grizzlies get their 42nd win but I’ll take the Blazers and the points.
