Injury status: Out for the season

UPDATE (Mar. 29):

According to Chris Haynes of Turner Sports, Damian Lillard will miss the rest of the 2022–23 NBA season due to a calf injury.

After falling five games behind the final play-in spot, the Trail Blazers have decided to shut down the star point guard, Damian Lillard, who has missed the last three games.

UPDATE (Mar. 26):

Damian Lillard, a seven-time All-Star guard, is likely to miss the rest of the season as the Portland Trail Blazers sink deeper into mediocrity.

Lillard has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder, adding fuel to the fire that the Trail Blazers were on the verge of shutting him down for the season. Portland still has nine games to play.

Portland’s seventh loss in eight games came on Friday against the visiting Chicago Bulls, a 124-96 drubbing in which Lillard did not play due to calf tightness.

UPDATE (Mar. 24):

Lillard might be able to play against Chicago on Friday, even though his right calf is tight.

In his last seven games, Lillard has averaged 30.0 points, 9.1 assists, and 7.0 rebounds in 36.6 minutes. He has had three double-doubles. Even though he is having trouble with his calf, he should be able to play against the Bulls.

UPDATE (Mar. 22):

On Wednesday, the Blazers will play the Jazz, and Damian Lillard is prepared to compete.

UPDATE (Mar. 19):

Damian Lillard continued to show out on Friday, despite dealing with a calf injury that could eventually lead to him being shut down for the season.

He amassed 41 points (12-23 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 11-14 FT), four rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 37 minutess.

UPDATE (Mar. 17):

Lillard might play against the Celtics on Friday, even though his right calf is tight.

Lillard has been having trouble with his calf for the past week, which made him miss a game. He came back on Tuesday and scored 38 points in 39 minutes.

The point guard is shooting 46.5 percent from the field and scoring a career-high 32.3 points. He will probably have a chance to add to those numbers Friday.

UPDATE (Mar. 14):

Portland’s All-Star guard Damian Lillard missed Sunday’s loss in New Orleans because of an inflamed right calf, and his status for Tuesday’s game is still uncertain.

UPDATE (Mar. 12):

Despite experiencing right calf tightness, Lillard is still considered a probable starter for Sunday’s game against the Pelicans.

Lillard played 39 minutes and recorded a double-double on Friday against the 76ers, but it appears he may not have come out of the game unscathed physically. The starting point guard has been experiencing some tightness in his right calf, but the team is confident he will be able to play on Sunday in New Orleans.

UPDATE (Mar. 10):

Damian Lillard is ready to play against the 76ers on Friday.
