Report: Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard has played through numerous injuries this season

Damian Lillard

The Portland Trail Blazers have been having an underwhelming season thus far.

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard has been quietly battling a multitude of injuries this year.

“Lillard is giving his all to be available and to keep faint championship aspirations alive in Portland, all while fighting a number of injuries,” Haynes wrote. “The 30-year-old has battled a left ankle injury, tender ribs, a lower abdomen strain, and knee soreness from continual screen clashes, league sources told Yahoo Sports.”

Lillard, 30, has started in 57 games for the Blazers this season.

The 6-foot-2 guard is collecting 28.2 points, 7.4 assists and 3.7 rebounds in 35.8 minutes per game this season. He’s leading the team in scoring and assists.

Yet, the Blazers have floundered in their pursuit of being a serious championship contender. The squad is the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference with a 34-28 record.

The team lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs.

Surely, there will be a ton of pressure for them to have a deep playoff run. After all, Lillard is giving it all that he has.
