Jerami Grant’s start of the season is being recognized across the league.

The Portland Trail Blazers forward was among the nominees for Western Conference Player of the Week.

The honor was ultimately given to Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards, who averaged 31.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 468 assists per game as his team went 4-0. Reigning league MVP Joel Embiid won the honors in the Eastern Conference.

Other nominees alongside Grant were Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers), Cam Reddish (Lakers), Luka Dončić (Dallas Mavericks), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder), Nikola Jokić (Denver Nuggets) and Alperen Sengun (Houston Rockets).

Grant averaged 30.5 points, seven rebounds and three assists in the two Blazers games this week.

With Malcolm Brogdon and Scoot Henderson out for the foreseeable future, Grant will have to step up both as a leader off and on the court, and it seems like he’s doing just that.
