Here are Freeman’s tweets:
Damian Lillard was limping around the Blazers' postgame locker room, revealing the affects of that nasty and awkward fall in the 1st Q. He said he tweaked his right knee and was "kind of limited" the rest of the night vs. the Celtics.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) November 12, 2018
Damian Lillard said he didn't expect the spill to cause him to miss any games, but it'll be worth monitoring. The Blazers' training staff fitted him with a compression wrap after the game and, he said, "I know it’s going to be sore as hell tomorrow."— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) November 12, 2018
Lillard’s “limited” night consisted of 19 points on 7-15 shooting with 12 assists and 5 rebounds. He did shoot 2-7 from the three-point arc.
The Blazers are off until Wednesday night when they will face the Los Angeles Lakers in L.A.
