Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard needed to be sharp with both Jusuf Nurkic (calf) and Jerami Grant (concussion) forced to leave the match early on Wednesday.
Although it wasn’t a ‘must-win’ the Blazers are in the parity pack group and feeling a sense of desperation to move upward given they sit outside the play-in seeding with the Thunder and Lakers also fighting to move up.
Portland averages 114.3 points per game ranking 16th while shooting 48.2% from the field and 37.7% from the perimeter ranking seventh and sixth respectively.
The Blazers allow 113.7 points per game (16th) with foes shooting 47.8% from the field (22nd) and 36.3 from deep (20th).
To summarize the injury report…
- Jusuf Nurkic, C (OUT— calf)
- Jerami Grant, SF (Questionable — concussion)
- Justise Winslow, PF (OUT — ankle)
- Ibou Badji, C (OUT— knee)
Presumably, the move to send Rui Hachimura to the Lakers had multiple objectives. First, free up some cap space to re-sign fan favorite Kyle Kuzma who has arguably been the most consistent (and healthy) starter.
Secondly, gain draft stock while moving on from a player who never found his footing in Washington. To wit, although Kendrick Nunn was part of the package the trio of second-round picks was the main desirable of the deal.
Statistically, the Wizards fall in the middle ground to the lower tier in the majority of areas. Also, they score 113.0 points per game (20th) while shooting 48.0% from the field and 35.2% from the perimeter ranking 10th and 20th respectively.
So far, defensively, the Wizards allow 113.0 points per game ranking 14th while opponents shoot 46.2% from the field and 35.5% from deep ranking fifth and 11th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Anthony Gill, PF (Questionable— quarantine)
- Johnny Davis, SG (Out G League – On Assignment)

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
Both teams are fighting to get into the play-in tournament although you have to wonder if the Hachimura trade was an early tip of the hat the Wizards are about to go full-on tank mode.
Portland might be severely shorthanded if Grant doesn’t clear protocols but I trust the Blazers (and Dame) more than I do the Wizards.
