Pop, unprompted postgame went out of his way to praise Damian Lillard for the sacrifice he made to join Team USA last summer. Pop feels a genuine debt of gratitude to those guys, and says so often. – 12:26 AM

The problem with “it’s time to blow it up” takes is that it’ll go the opposite way with the current president of basketball operations. Dame being out an extended period of time is his built-in excuse for why it’s (still) not the roster and nothing needs to change. – 12:17 AM

Zeller-Nance DHO into a Dennis Smith Jr. off the dribble 3.
Blazers with Lillard and Simons both injured might have some shot creation issues. – 11:57 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
With Lillard out, feels like Portland needs C.J. McCollum to be special in order to hang in games.
Related: McCollum is 3 of 10 in the first half. – 10:59 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
The vibes of the no-Dame Blazers (on the court and in the size of the crowds) are BLEAK. – 10:18 PM

Chauncey Billups says Damian Lillard will be spending a lot of time resting over these 10 days but he “hopes” they’ll be able to get him a little bit of basketball activity. There’s been no talk of surgery at this point. – 8:20 PM

Dame and CJ are magic on offense but tragic on defense. Now is the time for the Blazers to break them up. #TheVoidNBA pic.twitter.com/LMwqeGZi7Z7:22 PM

Think about the West’s injured All-Star team right now…
Kawhi, LeBron, Klay, Dame, Zion, Ja, Murray, Booker, KAT… sheesh – 9:24 AM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Blazers are favored by 3.5 tonight over the Spurs.
The Blazers make 10.9 threes per game without Dame.
The Spurs make 9.6 threes per game. – 7:53 AM

Damian Lillard out at least 10 days with lower abdominal isuue nba.nbcsports.com/2021/12/01/dam…9:21 PM

More on this storyline

Aaron J. Fentress: Damian Lillard (abdomen) and Nassir Little (ankle) will each miss several games. Lillard is out at least 10 days while Little is out at least a week. All of those days of “no injuries to report” or having one guy down screamed that bad luck was around the corner for #RipCity -via Twitter @AaronJFentress / December 1, 2021
