Thomas Robinson underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb Tuesday, but expected to be ready for training camp. 

The former Kansas Jayhawk hasn't done much in the NBA. Even though he's had some good games at the pro level, he is too inconsistent and has been a bust in the NBA. His fantasy value is very limited as long as LaMarcus Aldridge is healthy.

Vegas Summer League Day 7: Will Barton doubled up with 15 points and a game-high 10 rebounds (four offensive) in a losing effort Thursday.

On the surface the stat line looks nice, but the second-year player out of Memphis went a combined 4-of-19 from the field (1-of-7 3-pointers) to get the 15 points. He has now made just four triples in 18 tries over four games in Vegas while shooting under 40% from the field in three of those four games. In addition, his decision making has not been the best as he has 15 turnovers, including 10 over his last two games. Barton flashed some upside at times last season, just as he has this summer, but if he hopes to be a player who can garner consistent minutes he will have to show he can be a more efficient and reliable offensive player.

Thomas Robinson (right thumb ligament tear) will be out for the remainder of the Blazers NBA Summer League.

Robinson was putting up solid numbers in Summer League, so this is a disappointment. He should be ready for the start of the 2014-15 season.

LaMarcus Aldridge withdraws from Team USA, teammate Damian Lillard is still a go.

Aldridge didn't really give a reason for withdrawing his name from the list, but it is assumed that he wants to rest up for the upcoming season. Lillard is still just a 23-year old kid so he's going to stay involved.

Update: Meyers Leonard (shoulder strain) is expected to miss at least Sunday’s Summer League game against the Houston Rockets.

Leonard, who was hurt by his own teammate Joel Freeland, will have to wait a couple games before getting another opportunity to attempt to prove himself worthy of having been selected 11th overall by the Blazers in the 2012 Draft after just two years at the University of Illinois. While many fans are willing to give up on Leonard already, dynasty league owners need to realize that even if healthy the kid was/will take a few years to flash his potential, especially after the team had signed Robin Lopez prior to the start of last season. Regardless, Leonard does not project to be a starting center in the NBA, but could be a valuable asset off the bench, which is not what fantasy owners nor fans want or expect from a lottery pick but will have to learn to expect it seems.

Blazers are calling Meyers Leonard's shoulder injury a strain. 

Leonard was hoping to showcase his skills in the Summer League to demonstrate that he is worth more playing time as a center in non-garbage time. Strain sounds as if he may be able to play once the shoulder feels better.

Portland Trail Blazers have reached an agreement with guard Steve Blake. The deal is reportedly for two-years at $4.2 million with a player option for year two.

The 11-year veteran heads back to Portland where he spent the 2005-2006 season and from 2007-2010. Last season he opened the year with the Lakers and averaged 9.5 points and 7.6 rebounds in 27 starts. He was traded to the Warriors in the second half where he was hardly used. He'll serve as a back-up point guard for the Trail Blazers this year.

LaMarcus Aldridge is not expected to sign a contract extension with the Trail Blazers.

Instead, Aldridge is claiming that he will re-sign after next season. With Chris Bosh supposedly getting an offer of four years, $88 million from Houston, Aldridge would be insane if he didn't at least test the free agent market. After the LeBron drama cools down, we can look forward to Aldridge's choice next summer.
