The Portland Trail Blazers are already riddled with injuries, and it looks like that will be the case again tonight for them. Arron Afflalo, who was a mid-season pick up by the Blazers, won’t play in their first playoff game versus the Grizzlies due to a shoulder injury.
Arron Afflalo will NOT play in Game 1
— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) April 19, 2015
Afflalo was going through pre-game warm-ups for the game, but it was noticeable that he was uncomfortable warming up. Wesley Matthews is also of course out tonight, as he tore his Achilles in March, leaving the Blazers without their main shooting guards tonight.
Afflalo finished the regular season averaging 13.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists per game.
