Damian Lillard has had a historic season so far. ‘Dame Dolla’ has carried the Blazers to one of the best records in the league on the back of his MVP-caliber performance.

Last night, Lillard and Co faced off against another massive surprise of the season, the Utah Jazz. The Jazz, who were expected to be one of the less impactful teams in the league, currently stand at the top of the Western Conference. In a game that went down to the wire, the Jazz edged out the Blazers in a 118-113 win. Apart from the loss, the Blazers also suffered a massive blow to the roster after an MRI report revealed that Lillard suffered a right calf strain at a different area than the previous injury.

The Trail Blazers will face the Greek Freak and the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. Moreover, they will also meet the Slim Reaper and the Brooklyn Nets a week from now. With star-studded opponents in two of the next four games, Portland will undoubtedly miss their best player. However, Lillard’s absence might also prove to be a massive relief for the Bucks and the struggling Nets.
