Portland Trail Blazers guard Shaedon Sharpe will miss at least two weeks with a lower abdominal strain, the team announced on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Sharpe will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
The second-year guard sustained the injury against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Jan. 11, exiting the game late in the third quarter. Further imaging demonstrated the strain.

Sharpe missed five games this season from Dec. 21-29 due to a right adductor strain, returning on a minutes restriction to play against the Phoenix Suns on Jan. 1. He has missed Portland’s last two games due to this latest injury.
Over the next two weeks, Portland is scheduled to play eight games, closing the stretch against the Philadelphia 76ers on Jan. 29. That likely means that at the earliest, Sharpe could return to the lineup against the Milwaukee Bucks on Jan. 31.
In 32 appearances this season, Sharpe has averaged 15.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 33.1 minutes per game, while shooting 40.6% from the field.
