Outcomes for all the players you forgot were even eligible for a contract extension or team option… yes, I’m talking about Derrick Williams
Oct 27, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT
He’s going to have to show a much improved game to have a chance to get paid like a former No. 5 pick.

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…

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,…

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…

Portland’s Meyers Leonard and Philadelphia’s Daniel Orton were each suspended one game without pay on Sunday for their roles in the altercation that took place between the two players on Saturday, the league announced. Leonard body-slammed Orton to the floor (that’s the term used in the official release, so it must be true), and then…

This was just frustration, because by this point in the fourth quarter the game itself was all but over — Portland was up 34 and cruising in for a win. Philadelphia’s Daniel Orton was trying to back down Portland’s Meyers Leonard in to the post while the ball was on the other side of the…

UPDATE 8:12 pm: The Trail Blazers are now saying this is not a quadracept injury, not a hip flexor. We’ll assume that is true, but I’m not sure it changes much. LaMarcus Aldridge will be out for a little while but the Trail Blazers need to let this rest because they don’t want this to…

One year ago Thomas Robinson was the No. 5 overall pick, now he enters he second NBA season already on his third team. He was drafted into the mess that was Sacramento, was traded to Houston where he showed some flashes but where he was mostly an asset to be moved in the Rockets’ Dwight…

LAS VEGAS – The overall quality of play in Saturday’s Summer League game between the Suns and the Blazers was among the best we’ve seen over the event’s first couple of days, and a quick look of the rosters makes it easy to understand why. Phoenix started four players that played heavy minutes in the…

LaMarcus Aldridge is a four. A big four, an All-Star four, but he has been forced to play a lot of five — a lot of center — over the course of his career and that can be hit and miss for him. So the trail Blazers are targeting a real center this off-season to…

If the Miami Heat do something like this, we all just kind of expect it. But when the Portland Trail Blazers are doing a bit of showtime it catches your attention — this is Nicolas Batum going off the backboard to Meyers Leonard for the dunk. Pretty impressive. Blazers coach Terry Stotts was less than…
