Portland Trail Blazers rookie point guard Scoot Henderson is getting closer to returning from injury. The Trail Blazers have assigned Henderson to the Rip City Remix for “return to court conditioning,” the team announced on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Henderson sustained a sprained right ankle, along with a deep bone bruise on the same ankle, in a game against the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 1. He hasn’t played since, missing the last eight games.

In his last injury update on Nov. 11, the Trail Blazers said Henderson would be operating on a “return to play timeline” of an additional 2-3 weeks.

The Remix, the Trail Blazers new G League affiliate, play next on Friday in a home game against the Salt Lake City Stars and then again at home against the Stars on Sunday. Despite news of the assignment, it doesn’t necessarily mean Henderson will appear in those games.

Sean Highkin of The Rose Garden Report said on X he doesn’t expect Henderson to suit up in any Remix games, but will utilize the assignment for training purposes.

Henderson has played in just five of 13 games this regular season, averaging 8.8 points, 4.6 assists and 2.2 rebounds.

The Trail Blazers play tonight against the Phoenix Suns, a game Henderson has already been ruled out for. Then the Trail Blazers play tomorrow against the Utah Jazz before getting three days off ahead of Sunday’s road matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks.

UPDATE: And just like that, Henderson is back from his assignment with the Remix.
