Al-Farouq Aminu (Hamstring) Doubtful Vs. Lakers

Aminu could miss his second consecutive game as he deals with a hamstring strain.

Al-Farouq Aminu was an unexpected scratch from the Portland Trail Blazers’ preseason game against the Utah Jazz on Sunday. After his teammates secured the 116-111 overtime victory, it was revealed that he strained his left hamstring in practice earlier this week and, according to Terry Stotts, it is not serious.

However, his status for tonight’s matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers remains doubtful.

If Aminu is unable to play tonight, it is likely that Moe Harkless will get his second straight start at small forward. Harkless tallied eight points and nine rebounds in 29 minutes last night, shooting 3-of-5 from the field.
