Update: Damian Lillard (foot) will play Friday against Maccabi Haifa, according to coach Terry Stotts.

Lillard said on Thursday, "I mean, if I practiced, I'm going to play," so yeah, he's going to play on Friday night in Portland's final home preseason game. The third year point guard averaged 20.7 points last season for the Trail Blazers.

Meyers Leonard (neck) will play Friday against Maccabi Haifa, according to coach Terry Stotts.

The big man is dealing with neck issues, but appears to be well enough to play on Friday night. He may see a day or two of rest next week, but he'll be ready to go when the season starts at the end of the month. Leonard will be filling a reserve role once again.

Meyers Leonard (neck) fully practiced on Wednesday.

Neck returned to being a full practice participant, and he seems to be over a thoracic muscle strain. The third-year center should be one of the big men off the bench for Portland in 2014-2015.

Damian Lillard (foot) practiced Wednesday and said he expects to play in Friday's preseason game.

Great news for Lillard owners as their star point guard is fully healthy or at least very close to it. Lillard will look to improve upon his 2013-2014 numbers and once again be one of the top point guards in the game.

Damian Lillard (foot) practiced Tuesday, but was excluded from the team's scrimmage.

Lillard's foot is feeling much better, but the Trail Blazers are playing it safe with their starting point guard. There's a good chance that he will play in Friday's exhibition game.

Meyers Leonard is considered day-to-day with a neck injury.

He is dealing with a thoracic muscle strain and will not play in their third preseason game. He is a back up big man for the Trailblazers and his fantasy relevance is rather now. He did score nine points in only 12 minutes last Thursday.

 Damian Lillard worked out Monday to test his ankle and pronounced himself 100 percent healthy.

He hurt his ankle in game action early last week, and said he was completely healthy after a strenuous workout. This is good news for Portland and Lillard owners, as he is one of the brightest young point guards in the game. Last season, he averaged just over 20 points a game, and shot nearly 40 percent from three.

Portland waived forward James Southerland.

He was a non-guaranteed one year contact signee, so not a huge surprise here.

 Damian Lillard (foot) did not practice Saturday. He's doubtful vs. the Clippers.

If Lillard sits out with his sore ankle, then either Steve Blake or CJ McCollum will get the start at point guard. Portland will give him time to heal, as he is projected as the starting point guard this season.

Damian Lillard (foot) will not play Thursday against the Jazz.

Lillard is one of the games elite point guards and the Blazers will need him healthy if they hope to compete in the always competitive Western Conference.
