Damian Lillard won’t play against Hawks


Portland Trail Blazers’ star Damian Lillard won’t see action with the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday (Manila time) due to a knee injury.

Some reports had speculated that the point guard will back on court, but it looks like the soreness in Lillard’s right knee is more serious than what everybody thought.

Without Lillard, CJ McCollum will have more responsibilities on court along with Jusuf Nurkic. Seth Curry will step up from the bench and have more playing time as well.

Lillard is averaging 26.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.2 assists for the Blazers. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
