Jerami Grant is continuing to be 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 Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker, who averaged 30.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game this past week. The Suns were undefeated in their games this week.

Other nominees alongside Grant were Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers), Anthony Edwards (Minnesota Timberwolves), Paul George (Los Angeles Clippers), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder) and Brandon Ingram (New Orleans Pelicans).

Grant averaged 29.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, four assists and two steals per game this week in the three Blazers’ contests against the Suns, Utah Jazz and Milwaukee Bucks.

Grant and the Blazers are back on the floor again tonight when they face the Indiana Pacers and their No. 1 offense. Tipoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. PT and can be watched on Root Sports.
