Both Hassan Whiteside and Pau Gasol will miss the Portland Trail Blazers’ annual Fan Fest scrimmage with injuries, reports team insider Casey Holdahl. Whiteside has been dealing with an ankle injury sustained during practice. Gasol is recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot.
