It might be more trade season than regular season for the Portland Trail Blazers, but the show goes on as head coach Chauncey Billups and the current roster take the Moda Center floor tonight for a game against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Blazers are losers of four straight and eight of their last 10, but Portland's last win did come against the Nets, a 134-127 overtime win in Brooklyn on Jan. 7. Anfernee Simons had a team-high 38 points in that game.

Will Portland have its star scorer available for this matchup?

Is Anfernee Simons playing for the Blazers tonight?

Simons was a late add to Portland's injury report as he deals with an illness that's been running through the Blazers locker room. Considering the backcourt injuries the team is already dealing with, it would be a big blow not to have Simons available for tonight's game.
