Trail Blazers forward Nassir Little is entering the NBA’s concussion protocol following a fall in Monday’s practice. During Tuesday morning’s media availability, head coach Terry Stotts revealed that the fall occurred during Monday’s practice.

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.
