Portland Down Two More Starters, Again, Versus Dallas

PORTLAND -- The Trail Blazers were severely limited due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols the last time they hosted the Dallas Mavericks. But while the team is currently COVID-free (knock on wood), they won’t have many more available players for their second meeting at Moda Center versus the Mavericks.

Due to various injuries, the Trail Blazers could have as few as 10 players available for the second night of an all-home back-to-back versus Dallas Wednesday night at Moda Center.

Both Damian Lillard (core muscle recovery) and Cody Zeller (right patellar fracture) are out for Wednesday’s game, and the foreseeable future, as they recover from recent surgeries, so those absences come as no surprise.
