Trail Blazers Radio Voice Brian Wheeler to Miss Upcoming Road Trip

Health concerns will force the Blazers play-by-play man to the sidelines.


The Portland Trail Blazers have announced the radio play-by-play broadcaster Brian Wheeler will not make the upcoming four-game road trip with the team. Wheeler will be attending to health concerns, the same that forced him out of the broadcast chair for a 12-game span earlier this season. Veteran radio and television voice Scott Lynn will take over during Wheeler’s absence.

The press release from the Blazers follows:

PORTLAND, Ore. (January 7, 2018) – Portland Trail Blazers radio play-by-play voice Brian Wheeler will be temporarily sidelined during the team’s upcoming four-game road trip, according to team officials. The move will allow Wheeler to further manage a health matter which forced him to miss 12 games earlier this season. Long-time Portland radio and television broadcaster Scott Lynn will again handle radio play-by-play duties for the Trail Blazers, calling the team’s road games this week at Oklahoma City, Houston, New Orleans and Minnesota.
