According to coach Terry Stotts, Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard could continue to miss time with a groin injury following the All-Star break. In a conversation with NBC Sports Northwest’s Dan Sheldon, Stotts revealed that he doesn’t expect Lillard to practice with the team on Wednesday.

Lillard, after playing 37 minutes, exited in the final stages of the Blazers’ 111-104 loss to the Grizzlies on Feb. 12. According to comments from the interview on Tuesday, Stotts was under the impression that Lillard would be evaluated upon his return from Chicago. The Blazers return to action on Friday against the Pelicans.
