Damian Lillard only back next season? | NBA

Even if, in the standings, the Blazers still have chances to snatch a place for the “play-in”, the departures of CJ McCollum, Norman Powell, Larry Nance Jr and Robert Covington are a clear message on the ambitions of the franchise. by the end of the season.

Therefore, Damian Lillard, currently dismissed to treat his pubalgia, will he come back? Besides, where is he physically?

“He is on time in his rehabilitation”announces the acting GM, Joe Cronin, for The Oregonian. “We are already four weeks after his operation, so everything is fine. He starts doing cardio and he kicks a little. “

The question of his return this season arises since the playmaker had clearly stated that if his team played for “a draft choice”we should no longer count on him for the end of this 2021/2022 financial year.

Without openly saying it, the franchise seems to confirm the idea of ​​a possible end to the season in the infirmary, in order to best prepare for next season and, for “Lady”, to no longer have the worries of pubalgia, which have bothered so much since the Tokyo Olympics last summer.

“For Damian, it’s also a mental break”, continues the GM. “It’s important, especially after nine seasons where he carried our team, especially with the last three seasons which have been very close. We want to make sure he recovers well mentally as well. So, yes, we’re going to take it very slowly with him, with next year in sight. “
