PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard has returned to the starting lineup Monday night against the Memphis Grizzlies after missing seven games with a sore left foot.
Lillard was averaging 24.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.8 assists before he was sidelined with plantar fasciitis. CJ McCollum slid over to point guard during Lillard's absence and the Blazers went 4-3.
Lillard, a two-time All-Star, had not missed a game in his NBA career (275 games) before his injury.
