Portland will play in Minneapolis tomorrow night and again on Monday as it continues its road-heavy late season schedule.
The 26-year-old Hart has been one of the few veteran Blazers to take the court since last month’s NBA trade deadline. He arrived in Portland as part of the deal that sent CJ McCollum to the New Orleans Pelicans on February 8.
As a Blazer, Hart has averaged 17.5 points on 33 percent three point shooting, as well as 5.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals.
He joins Damian Lillard, Eric Bledsoe, Jusuf Nurkic, Joe Ingles, Nassir Little, Justise Winslow and Didi Louzada on the sidelines.
Available players include Anfernee Simons, Keon Johnson, CJ Elleby, Drew Eubanks, Ben McLemore, Trendon Watford, Greg Brown III, Elijah Hughes and Keljin Blevins. Brandon Williams is also probable to play.
