What’s With the Trail Blazers Injury Woes?

The Portland Trail Blazers aren’t just slumping through the end of their 2023-24 season, they’re limping through it. Last night versus the Houston Rockets, Portland started five rookies. Only one of them would have been immediately recognizable when the season started. Veterans Jerami Grant, Deandre Ayton, and Anfernee Simons are down, along with Shaedon Sharpe and—depending on the night—a couple ancillary players.

The litany of injuries has provoked a hornet’s nest of responses in the Blazer’s Edge Mailbag, one of the nicer of which is printed here:

Hi Dave,

Once again Blazer fans are suffering through another season with key players out with injuries for long durations.
