Portland Trail Blazers power forward Cliff Alexander suffered a bone bruise in his left knee, according to Casey Holdahl. Coach Terry Stotts indicated that he would miss "a couple weeks".  Stotts did say that Alexander could still make the team despite the injury.

Alexander was one of the top freshman recruits in the country, playing at the University of Kansas.  Despite that, he went undrafted and signed with Portland in July.
