Path Blazers hopeful about Damian Lillard foot damage

Path Blazers guard Damian Lillard is battling a foot damage, however coach Terry Stotts believes the difficulty is nothing severe.

Lillard sat out the Path Blazers’ scrimmage towards the reigning NBA champion Raptors on Sunday.

The Path Blazers, ninth within the Western Convention, are scheduled to restart their season towards the Grizzlies on Friday.

Stotts is hopeful Lillard will likely be prepared for Tuesday’s scrimmage towards the Thunder.

“He did have an X-ray. The X-ray was adverse. He simply has some irritation,” Stotts stated, via Yahoo Sports. “I do not anticipate it to be a long-term deal. Hopefully he’ll have the ability to play our final scrimmage.

“I believe it is somewhat bit on the underside of his foot, however I am not fairly positive about that, however I believe it’s.”

Lillard was averaging 28.9 factors, 7.eight assists and 4.three rebounds earlier than the season was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
