Dave Joerger said injuries on both sides made it hard to prepare for specific matchups. Said he'd play Conley 45 mins of possible

John Canzano

Joerger said of potential Blazers adjustments after 0-4 record this season vs Grizzlies: “We gotta do what we do.”

Memphis coach David Joerger says Mike Conley and Tony Allen are gametime decisions vs. #Blazers.

Memphis coach Dave Joerger said Mike Conley and Tony Allen are “game time decisions.”

Jason Quick

So, based on what I saw pre-game I would not expect Afflalo to play in Game 1. Which isn't a surprise.

Jason Quick

Arron Afflalo going through pre-game shooting drills from close range. Mostly driving layins. Still grabs at the back of right arm.

Suddenly deadly deep threat Corey Brewer and Chandler Parsons' bad wheel a much bigger story lines, in my not very humble opinion.

Mike Richman

Save your Harden FT hot takes. He shot 4 on intentional fouls to end the game. He beat the Mavs mainly on kick outs not cheap FTs.

If there was a no-conference setup w/ 1-16 seeds, #Blazers would be No. 8, play Chicago or Dallas (depending on tiebreakers), w/homecourt.
