Blazers forward will be out of action as the playoffs start.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers updated the injury status of forward Dorell Wright this morning. The news isn't great.

Portland's regular season ends on Wednesday, April 15th, 12 days from now. Even the lower end of Wright's recovery estimate would keep him out of the first round. It's another blow for a team that lost Wesley Matthews to an Achilles injury on March 5th.

Wright averaged 4.6 points in 12.4 minutes per game for the Trail Blazers this season but his averages rose to 5.9 in 15.1 minutes in March as he assumed greater responsibility following the Matthews injury.
