The Blazers were already shorthanded at wing with Gary Trent Jr. missing his second straight game with a right calf strain.

Blazers starting small forward Derrick Jones Jr. is also playing with four fouls early in the third quarter.  

Portland can go small-ball with Anfernee Simons in the second unit or go with a big lineup and give Harry Giles minutes off the bench.
