Damian Lillard aggravated his left plantar fascia in Sunday’s 116-109 loss to the Miami Heat, as reported by Blazers Beat Writer Casey Holdahl. Lillard was clearly limping in the final minutes.
Lillard says it's his left plantar fascia that's bothering him, not his knee— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) December 20, 2015
Although this injury will likely be a nagging problem for Lillard, he does not appear to be worried. Hodahl indicates that Lillard remains likely to play in tomorrow’s contest against the Atlanta Hawks.
Lillard was also emphatic that he's not particularly worried about the injury, would expect he played tomorrow vs. Hawks— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) December 20, 2015
If at any point this injury becomes too much for Lillard, or Terry Stotts feels it is in his best interest to give him some rest, Lillard’s streak of playing every game will come to an end. He has started 275 consecutive games since entering the league in 2012.
