The Portland Trail Blazers secured a win on the road against the Detroit Pistons with a final score of 110-101, extending their winning streak after a challenging start to the season, losing the initial three games.
Unfortunately, the game didn’t end well for Scoot Henderson, who had to exit the court due to an ankle sprain injury with 5 minutes and 35 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
The rookie guard had accumulated 11 points and seven assists before his departure. The uncertainty surrounds his availability for the upcoming game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Should fans be worried at this point?
That hinges on the official update from the team, which will shed light on the injury’s severity and whether it will keep him out of action or if he’ll make a comeback in the Blazers’ upcoming matches.
Typically, recovery from ankle sprains can span from a few days to several weeks, contingent on the injury’s seriousness.
Adding to their concerns, the Blazers already have Ish Wainwright and Anfernee Simons on the injury list, with Simons expected to be out for six weeks due to thumb surgery.
Should Scoot Henderson join the injury list, it would present a significant challenge for the Blazers, given the tough matchups that await them.
Portland (2-3) will take on the Memphis Grizzlies (0-5) in back-to-back games on Friday and Sunday, as they look forward to getting more wins.
