    Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard won't play again this season: Sources

    If it wasn't already obvious, the Portland Trail Blazers franchise has no intentions of doing whatever they can to win another game this season. Multiple NBA sources have confirmed to The Oregonian/OregonLive that the Blazers will not play Lillard again this season. The Blazers (32-43) have seven games remaining, three at the Moda Center including two this week against the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday and Friday. Bleacher Report's Chris Haynes first reported that the Blazers have shut down Lillard, however, it has been more than obvious since he didn't play in the games following the team's win March 22 at Utah.
