Al-Farouq Aminu Will Return from Injury as Trail Blazers Face Bucks

Mike Richman of the Oregonian quotes the defensive-minded forward saying he’ll play, but come off the bench.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Portland Trail Blazers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Al-Farouq Aminu will return from an month-long hiatus due to injury on Thursday as the Portland Trail Blazers face the Milwaukee Bucks. Mike Richman of OregonLive posted the injury update on Twitter:

The Blazers have posted a 9-4 record in Aminu’s absence, holding opponents to just 98.8 points per game, but they’ll be grateful for his defensive presence as they contend with MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo.
