After missing a half-dozen games with a groin strain, Portland’s All-Star seems poised to take the floor again.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is probable to return to the court on Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards. Lillard has been out for Portland’s last six games with a groin injury suffered in the closing moments of Portland’s 104-111 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on February 12th, just prior to the NBA All-Star break. The news was released by the Blazers this evening.

The Blazers have gone 2-4 so far in Lillard’s absence. He is averaging 29.5 points and 7.9 assists in a league-leading 37.0 minutes per game over 54 appearances this season.
