The NBA trade deadline is in the rearview mirror, and for teams like the Portland Trail Blazers, that means it's time to see what the young guys are made of. Expect heavy minutes for players such as Scoot Henderson, Jabari Walker and Anfernee Simons - provided they're healthy.

For Ant and Scoot, that's been a relevant qualifier this season. What's their status tonight when Portland hosts the Minnesota Timberwolves?

Is Scoot Henderson playing tonight for the Blazers?

Leading up to tip-off, Scoot is listed as questionable on the team's injury report. That goes for a few other Trail Blazers as well. Expect to see lengthier injury lists as the end of the season gets closer and the team leans toward player development (also known as tanking).

With Shaedon Sharpe and Malcolm Brogdon already out, if Henderson doesn't play, it'll likely mean even more minutes for Ashton Hagans and Delano Banton.

Full injury report for Trail Blazers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

The complete injury report for tonight's game is as follows:

Portland Trail Blazers:

  • Out: Robert Williams III (knee); Malcolm Brogdon (elbow tendinitis); Moses Brown (wrist); Shaedon Sharpe (core surgery)
  • Questionable: Scoot Henderson (foot)
  • Probable: Anfernee Simons (ankle); Duop Reath (knee)
