Scoot Henderson and the Portland Trail Blazers started the season 0-3 before ripping off three straight wins. That streak came to an end on Nov. 5 with a loss to the Grizzlies in the second game of a home-and-home series with Memphis, but Rip City will look to move back to .500 when it plays on the road at the Sacramento Kings (2-4) tonight.
How healthy will Portland be for its matchup at the Golden 1 Center?
Is Scoot Henderson playing tonight as the Blazers take on the Kings?
Unfortunately, the Trail Blazers will be without the services of their 19-year-old starting point guard for the third straight contest.
Scoot rolled his ankle in the third quarter of a 110-101 win over the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 1. He had 11 points and 7 assists in only 20 minutes before the injury.
The team hasn’t given any official timetable for when Henderson will return.
