  2. Blazers’ Robin Lopez fractures hand, will be out “a while”

    This will mean more minutes for Chris Kaman.

    Why salary-cap math says Indiana should keep Lance Stephenson – and maybe even rebuild a leaner roster around him

  5. Dwight Howard should not have fouled out against Trail Blazers, NBA says

    Dwight Howard

    Instead, Rockets center should have attempted potentially game-winning free throws

  6. Blazers’ Thomas Robinson has left patella strain, is day-to-day

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:57 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Portland Trail Blazers

    Thomas Robinson has been getting extra run with the rash of Blazers injuries up front — including All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge — but now he is joining their ranks. Robinson suffered a left patella strain during the first half of Portland’s win in Denver Tuesday night, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com. He is listed as is…

  7. Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge out at least a week with a groin strain

    Feb 18, 2014, 10:39 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    For the first time this season a Portland Trail Blazer starter is going to miss a game due to injury (one of the real secrets of their success this season). All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge will be out at least a week with a left groin strain, the team announced. After a week he will be re-evaluated,…

  8. Blazers’ reserve big man Joel Freeland out at least a month with sprained knee

    Feb 12, 2014, 8:46 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    When it happened it looked like something worse. Portland reserve big man Joel Freeland was battling for rebounding position in the first quarter Tuesday night when it looks like Nicolas Batum is pushed back and his foot hits Freeland’s right knee, which buckled and gave way. You can see a gif of the injury here…

  9. Dwight Howard drives for impressive reverse dunk vs. Blazers (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2014, 10:12 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    At first glance, this is a play more suited to Kevin Durant than Dwight Howard, mainly because we’re just not used to seeing seven-footers put the ball on the floor and blow by their defenders so quickly, and then elevate for the slam. But Howard showed he has this skill set during Monday’s win over…

  10. Anthony Davis with alley-oop poster on Joel Freeland (VIDEO)

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Pelicans’ Anthony Davis can throw it down with the best of them. Just ask Portland’s Joel Freeland, who gets caught in the middle trying to take away the Jrue Holiday driving lane and not really watching his roll man Davis, and by the time Freeland reacts to the alley-oop pass it is entirely to…

  11. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut, Blazers Mo Williams suspended for altercation, others fined

    Nov 25, 2013, 3:18 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    It was an odd “fight” (all NBA fights have to have that word in parenthesis as a “West Side Story” dance fight generally is more intimidating). Andrew Bogot and Joel Freeland got tangled up under the basket, then in his effort to get away Bogut throws a forearm at Freeland’s head. Mo Williams jumped in…

  12. Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors scrap on the court (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Well, that escalated quickly. No one threw a trident (Anchorman references are acceptable again, right?), but there were big ramifications from the on-court scuffle between the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors. The tussle started when Andrew Bogut and Joel Freeland got tied up in the paint, and things went to another level once…

  14. Blazers center Leonard out a couple weeks with ankle sprain

    Jan 7, 2013, 5:48 PM EST

    Meyers Leonard

    Rookie Meyers Leonard, who has played solidly for the Trail Blazers this season, will be out at least a couple more weeks with a sprained ankle. Leonard rolled his ankle on Dec. 29. Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com spoke with Leonard who said it would take a couple weeks for him to get back. “I would…

  15. Blazers coach Stotts calls out Meyers Leonard

    Nov 22, 2012, 2:02 PM EST

    Meyers Leonard

    The Suns had no problem with the Blazers on Wednesday, and Portland’s front line defense, or lack thereof, was the main reason why. Marcin Gortat and Jermaine O’Neal combined for 39 points on 18-of-23 shooting, and a lot of those buckets came at the expense of Meyers Leonard. Leonard is a rookie who now has…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  17. Blazers to start Hickson at center. They open against Lakers.

    Oct 23, 2012, 8:22 PM EST

    J.J.Hickson

    It’s looked more and more through the preseason like this was the direction things were headed. At 6’9” J.J. Hickson is not a traditional center by any means, but he is going to get the starting five job in Portland this season. At least on opening night. New coach Terry Stotts announced his decision Tuesday…

  18. NBA season preview: Portland Trail Blazers

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:42 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Last season: Nothing will push you toward rebuilding like disappointment, and their 28-38 record was that. This was a 48 win team a couple seasons ago, but last season a team that should be playing fast and pressuring teams was average in pace and threatening nobody. Point guard Raymond Felton took the blame from fans…

  19. Here are all 39 NBA players taking part in Olympics

    The Olympic basketball tournament is loaded with NBA players. Loaded. There are 39, and that is just guys currently on rosters (there are a couple not on now that likely will be by the time camp opens. Here is a list of all the NBA players in the Olympic tournament. Not a coincidence that the…

  20. Report: Blazers, Bucks, Mavericks going after Przybilla

    Jul 23, 2012, 3:14 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    Looks like next season will be lucky No. 13 in the NBA for Joel Przybilla. A couple years ago he was going to retire, but came out of that to play with the Blazers. Now his agent says there are three teams in the running for him, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com. According to his agent,…
