Except for a few games, "Is guard X playing for the Portland Trail Blazers tonight?" has been a constant question for head coach Chauncey Billups.
Anfernee Simons, Malcolm Brogdon, Scoot Henderson and now Shaedon Sharpe - Portland's entire backcourt rotation - have missed portions of the season. And we haven't even hit Christmas yet.
Sharpe is the latest member of that quartet to miss time as he deals with an adductor injury.
Will Shaedon Sharpe be in the lineup for the Trail Blazers tonight?
Sharpe is set to miss his second straight game, his third unless you count the eight minutes and change he was on the floor for against the Phoenix Suns.
Once again, it will be Malcolm Brogdon and Scoot Henderson soaking up the majority of Shaedon's minutes. Matisse Thybulle will get more run against Steph Curry and Co. tonight as well - but, unfortunately, maybe not just because of Sharpe's status.
Full injury report for Trail Blazers vs. Warriors
Along with Sharpe, Toumani Camara may miss tonight's game against Golden State as he deals with a right thumb strain. Camara is expected to play, but if he's held out, Billups will be down two starters.
Here's the complete injury report for tonight's matchup:
Portland Trail Blazers:
- Out: Shaedon Sharpe (adductor); Robert Williams III (knee)
- Probable: Toumani Camara (thumb)
Golden State Warriors:
- Out: Gary Payton II (calf)
