Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard's groin injury, which will keep him out of the All-Star festivities this weekend in Chicago, is facing a one- to two-week recovery period, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
Lillard has dealt with a groin injury and back spasms this season but has been durable for much of his career and played 73 or more games in each of his first seven seasons.
He is averaging 29.5 points, 7.9 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game while shooting 46 percent from the field and 39.3 percent from three-point range this season.
While CJ McCollum is a talented player who can shoulder the responsibility of facilitating the offense, the Trail Blazers are a much less formidable threat when No.
