Lillard (right leg) to be reevaluated in 1-2 weeks


Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard will be reevaluated in one to two weeks because of a Grade 1 strain to the soleus muscle in his right lower leg, the team said on Sunday.

Lillard left Saturday’s 118-113 loss to the Utah Jazz because of tightness in his right calf. He has already missed five games this season with a strained calf, but Lillard said this injury isn’t as bad.

“The last time was worse,” Lillard said Saturday. “When I first strained it, I knew right away. The reason I took myself out is so hopefully this time we can get ahead of it instead of me staying out there and putting myself in a worse position.”

Lillard is averaging 26.3 points and 7.0 assists for the Blazers this season.
