Late in the fourth quarter, Damian Lillard gingerly limped to the locker room after holding on to his groin area. I thought he might have been kneed in the man region by either Jonas Valanciunus or Brandon Clarke as he drove to the basket. He grabbed his groin and walked to the locker room.
It’s been reported that Lillard has a groin strain and will be getting an MRI in Chicago tomorrow morning. Dame will be sitting out the three-point contest and the All-Star Game.
We’ll keep you updated on his status going forward.
The Blazers need to go to 17-9 to finish with a .500 record. That will be hard if Dame misses any stretch of time.
