Up to this point, the Blazers have stood out as one of a few teams that have avoided potential injuries since arriving in Orlando. Portland is scheduled to open its three-game scrimmage schedule on Thursday against Indiana.
With Trevor Ariza out of the rotation, Little could receive an uptick in minutes if he remains healthy. The Blazers start their eight-game restart schedule with a crucial matchup against the Grizzlies on July 31.
