Latest Update Lillard struggles in season opener Thu Oct, 30, 08:29 AM
A phenomenal athlete, he has a lanky frame with quick wrists, a great throwing arm and supreme speed. Is an elite center-fielder, above-average base-stealer, decent home-run hitter and patient at the dish.
Flaws: : Has holes in his swing and takes a huge cut, so he piles up tremendous amounts of strikeouts. Can suffer from mental lapses in the field. Generally lacks polish. Can also be a little temperamental.
While Lillard struggled, owners shouldn't look too much into this. Lillard is one of the game's best young point guards and he will bounce back soon. Keep in mind, he was an All-Star last season and averaged 20.7 points, and 5.6 assists per game last season. He will be right around those numbers again this year, so owners shouldn't stress over this outing.Analyst: Colby Conway
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.Analyst: David Kerr
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.Analyst: Colby Conway
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.Analyst: David Kerr
