Marc Stein, ESPN.com: Blazers are No. 20

Wish I had something smart/comforting to say to Blazer-maniacs after a season that began with Brandon Roy's injury-hastened retirement and yet another health setback to ultimately end Greg Oden's time in Portland is wrapping up with hip surgery for LaMarcus Aldridge. But I don't.

John Hollinger, ESPN.com: Blazers are No. 20

John Schuhmann, NBA.com: Blazers are No. 20

Wesley Matthews has taken advantage of LaMarcus Aldridge's absence, hoisting 47 shots and averaging 22 points in the last three games. Jamal Crawford was actually more efficient, scoring 52 points on 35 shots in the first two games, before sitting out Sunday's loss to the Kings.

Chris Sheridan, SheridanHoops.com: Blazers are No. 20

Memo to those hoping Paul Allen sells the team: He gets rejuvenated on draft night, and Blazers will likely have two lottery picks (their own, and New Jersey's).

Kurt Helin, Pro Basketball Talk: Blazers are No. 20

Wes Mathews has played well with more minutes. So, there's that for a bright side.

Jeff Sagarin, USA Today: Blazers are No. 19
