The Portland Trail Blazers have hit the east coast preparing for their battle with the Brooklyn Nets tomorrow afternoon. While Jabari Walker appears to be edging closer to a return from a left knee complaint, Matisse Thybulle is questionable with a right foot sprain.
INJURY REPORT 1/7 @ BKN:— Trail Blazers PR (@TrailBlazersPR) January 6, 2024
Deandre Ayton (R Knee Tendinitis)
Moses Brown (L Wrist Sprain)
Robert Williams III (R Knee Ligament Tear)
Matisse Thybulle (R Foot Sprain)
Jabari Walker (L Knee Soreness)
Walker suffered his injury during the third quarter of Wednesday’s first of back-to-back games against the Dallas Mavericks. The injury forced him to miss Friday’s rematch.
Thybulle left Friday’s outing during the second half with the foot injury and did not return.
Bigs Deandre Ayton and Moses Brown remain out thanks to their respective knee and wrist injuries while Robert Williams III continues to rehab from knee surgery.
Tomorrow’s midday tip off (Pacific Time) marks the halfway point of the Blazers seven-game road trip. They’re still slated to visit the in form New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder and Minnesota Timberwolves before returning to Portland in mid January.
