Damian Lillard ruled out for Trail Blazers on Tuesday with back spasms

Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard (back spasms) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game versus the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Lillard has apparently been bothered by back trouble since last Wednesday. That explains why he's only shot 21.7 from the field and 18.2 percent on triples in the last three games. Look for C.J. McCollum to shoulder the bulk of the offensive load on Tuesday. Anfernee Simons is a candidate to replace Lillard in the starting lineup.

Dame is averaging 47.6 FanDuel points through 14 games. numberFire's models project him for 24.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 3.0 3-pointers per game over the rest of the season.
