The injuries continue to pile on for the Portland Trail Blazers. 

Tuesday morning the team announced ahead of its matchup against the Washington Wizards that forward Nassir Little was questionable due to a left knee sprain.

Little, who is coming off a career night, had been inserted into the starting lineup for two straight games with Derrick Jones Jr. out with a left foot sprain.

As the Blazers get set to tip-off against the Wizards at 5:0p.m. PST on NBCSNW, Little will not suit up after the Blazers announced that he is out for Tuesday’s contest.

Portland is also without CJ McCollum (left midfoot fracture), Jusuf Nurkic (right wrist fracture) and Zach Collins (left ankle stress fracture).

The timing couldn’t be worse for so many reasons, especially after Little said it was nice to have a game like he had where he could showcase his game on both ends.

Little drained five of his seven three-point attempts to help solidify a career night with 30 points in Monday’s loss to the Bucks. He also snagged six rebounds and recorded two blocks. 

Portland will have 10 players on the active roster list against the Wizards.
