Here are the major updates for April 21st regarding the Portland Trail Blazers and their train of injuries.
"I’m definitely progressing for sure, but still definitely taking it day-to-day… Can't give you 100% certainty for tomorrow" — Afflalo— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) April 21, 2015
Arron Afflalo sounded more optimistic about playing in Game 2 than he did before Game 1, but did't sound like it was close to a sure thing— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) April 21, 2015
Afflalo: "I wasn’t brought here to watch. I wasn’t brought here just to play a small role. I felt I could have helped the team (Sunday)."— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) April 21, 2015
Blazers have officially deemed Arron Afflalo questionable for Game 2.— Erik Gundersen (@blazerbanter) April 21, 2015

Portland G Wesley Matthews (L achilles) & F Dorell Wright (L hand) are OUT; G Arron Afflalo (R shoulder) is QUESTIONABLE for Wed @ Memphis.— Trail Blazers PR (@TrailBlazersPR) April 21, 2015
We all know he's done for the season, but Wesley Matthews is still a huge part of the Blazer spirit. I would be remiss if I did not link this Wes interview with Mike Barrett.
