The injury report for the Portland Trail Blazers has been updated in preparation for their participation in the In-Season tournament against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Notably, Scoot Henderson has now joined the injured list, alongside Anfernee Simons and Ish Wainwright. On a positive note, Shaedon Sharpe, right thumb sprain, is listed as probable for the upcoming game against Memphis.
Henderson sustained an ankle sprain during their recent matchup with the Pistons, although the severity of the injury remains undisclosed.
Henderson’s next opportunity to take the court will be in a Sunday rematch against Memphis. In the interim, Malcolm Brogdon is expected to step in as the primary point guard.
As for Shaedon Sharpe, his injury pertains to his shooting hand, but the “probable” designation suggests that the issue is not overly serious.
With Scoot Henderson sidelined due to his ankle injury on Friday, it’s likely that Sharpe and Malcolm Brogdon will see an increase in their offensive responsibilities.
The Trail Blazers are set to face the Memphis Grizzlies in back-to-back games as they aim to extend their winning streak, while the Grizzlies are still in search of their first victory after a winless (0-5) start to the season.
