Lillard has missed just two games this season — his most recent absence being March 26 against the Magic. If he sits out Friday, more minutes could go to Anfernee Simons, while CJ McCollum and Norman Powell would likely take on more playmaking responsibilities.

Big night off bench
It’s the veteran forward’s best scoring output in a month; he hit for 26 points against the Timberwolves on March 13. Anthony has seen his role and minutes dwindle in recent weeks, but he’s still capable of delivering a big performance in the right matchup when he gets the opportunity.

Hits for 20 against Celtics
Facing a familiar foe from his Raptors days, Powell finished second in scoring among Blazers starters to Damian Lillard, but the duo couldn’t keep up with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Powell has played 10 games since being traded to Portland and has almost exactly matched his Toronto production, trading a little efficiency for a little more volume. He’s averaging 16.7 points, 3.5 boards, 2.4 threes, 1.6 steals and 1.4 assists as a Blazer.
