The Blazers just announced that Damian Lillard IS OUT vs. the Spurs with a strained right calf.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) January 8, 2018
Folks, there’s something amiss with Damian Lillard tonight. Looks like his left leg is bothering him. He’s meeting with trainer now. Usually ends workout with dunk, he bypassed it today. Will update shortly.— Jason Quick (@jwquick) January 8, 2018
In reference to @jwquick tweet, here is video of Lillard pregame with watchful eyes from team medical personnel. He's also walking a little gingerly, skipping his usual dunk to conclude his warm-up. #RipCity pic.twitter.com/cuJPhZGYtQ— NBC Sports Northwest (@NBCSNorthwest) January 8, 2018
Next, the Spurs are missing lots of people. Kawhi also reportedly suffered a fresh shoulder injury.
Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Rudy Gay are all out for San Antonio tonight vs. the Blazers. Danny Green is doubtful.— Mike Richman (@mikegrich) January 7, 2018
