Justise Winslow: The best ability is availability
Justise Winslow’s injury history raises significant red flags for the Blazers.
While Winslow has shown flashes of promise during his healthy stretches, he has consistently struggled with durability, missing significant time due to various injuries.
On a team aiming to construct a reliable supporting cast around Lillard, the risk associated with Winslow’s injury-prone nature is simply too high. The Blazers would be better served by pursuing players with more consistent availability and proven durability.
If Winslow were to take a very team-friendly deal to remain with the Blazers, re-signing him could work. But even so, the best ability is availability, and the team needs players it can count on to provide depth to make a playoff run.
