Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard missed Sunday’s practice due to personal reasons, but is expected to join the team for Monday’s contest against the Clippers in Los Angeles. Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl delivered the news in a series of posts on Twitter.

Holdahl followed that initial news with an update from coach Terry Stotts.

Through seven contests in December, Lillard is producing a superb 27.9 points per game. The Blazers will enter Monday’s matchup with the Clippers with a record of 16-13.
