The Portland Trail Blazers are still on the road tonight, taking on the Philadelphia 76ers. In a non so unlikely turn of events, four out of five starters are injured for tonights game. The Blazers seem to have been injury-ridden a lot in the recent days, and with Damian Lillard out for tonight’s game, it seems to be the unfortunate cherry on top. Anfernee Simons will be on a minutes restriction and limited to 20 minutes of play. There’s lots to talk about tonight but even with all of these injuries, there are sure to be some bright spots in tonight’s game!

We also want to remind you of our Gameday Thread guidelines:

  • Don’t use gifs or videos in Game Day Threads because it slows down the comment section
  • Don’t troll in your comments; create conversation rather than destroying it
  • Remember Blazer’s Edge is basically a non-profanity site
  • Out of respect to broadcast partners who have paid to carry the game, no mentions of “alternative” (read: illegal) viewing methods are allowed in our threads

That’s all! Have fun tonight, and Go Blazers!
