The Portland Trail Blazers are coming off back-to-back wins after beginning the 2023-24 NBA season 0-3. Will the team be at full strength as it tries to make it three straight in a home matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies?
Is Scoot Henderson playing for the Trail Blazers tonight?
Scoot Henderson has had a rocky start to his rookie season, especially considering the hype and expectations surrounding the 2023 Draft’s No. 3 pick. He’s scored in single digits in two of Portland’s first five games, is averaging nearly as many turnovers as assists and fouled out of a win against the Toronto Raptors.
To make matters worse, Henderson had 11 points and 7 assists in only 20 minutes against the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 1 – easily his best NBA game – before rolling his ankle and being ruled out for most of the second half.
Will Scoot be back for tonight’s matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies? Unfortunately, the answer is no.
