Blazers News: Trevor Ariza Opting Out of Participation in NBA’s Bubble Restart

Trevor Ariza Portland Trail Blazers

Portland Trail Blazers forward Trevor Ariza has decided to sit out for the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.

Ariza, 34, was traded to the Trail Blazers from the Sacramento Kings midway through the season.

In 21 games with the Blazers this season, the journeyman put up 11.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

Without Ariza, the Blazers’ chances of making the postseason get even harder.

The Blazers are the No. 9 seed in the Western Conference standings. They are 3 1/2 games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the final playoff spot.

Blazers superstar Damian Lillard will have to bear on a ton on his shoulders. The point guard is putting up 28.9 points, 7.8 assists and 4.3 boards per game this season.

The Blazers went to the Western Conference Finals last season.
