Kaman recorded 12 points (6-7 FG), seven boards, and one block in 16 minutes during Monday's demolition of the Suns.

Since missing three games last week due to a sprained shoulder, Kaman has appeared revitalized the past three outings, averaging 10 points (on 56 percent shooting), nine rebounds, and one block in 17 minutes. Such efficiency is imperative when the defensive-minded Robin Lopez requires a rest, especially with a prime seed possible in the staunch Western Conference.

Kaman has missed three games since spraining his shoulder against the Magic last Friday.

Kaman (shoulder) will not play Wednesday against the Jazz.

Kaman will sit out a third consecutive game since spraining his shoulder against Orlando on Friday. With LaMarcus Aldridge considered questionable, the Blazers could again be shorthanded in the frontcourt, as was the case Tuesday night. That means Joel Freeland, who played 23 minutes Tuesday, and Meyers Leonard (15 minutes) could again see increased workloads.

Kaman (shoulder) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's game versus Golden State, The Oregonian reports.

Kaman injured his shoulder last Friday, causing him to miss Saturday's subsequent contest versus the Grizzlies. Now, as the center works his way back to the court, Tuesday's game may be too soon for a return. In his absence, which coincides with LaMarcus Aldridge (hand) also being doubtful Tuesday, Meyers Leonard should see a significant increase in playing time.

Kaman put up 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds during Monday's defeat at Washington.

Kaman matched the total scoring output of the rest of the Blazers' reserves, which marked his second occasion surpassing 10 points in the last three games. Since the break, he's shot at least 60 percent from the field nine times in 12 appearances, meaning his reduction in workload (20 to 17 minutes) has yielded fruit. During that span, he's averaging 8.1 points (on 58 percent shooting), 5.8 boards, and 0.8 assists.

However, he's used his limited workload efficiently in the meantime, averaging 7.5 points (on 59 percent shooting), 5.7 boards, and 0.7 assists in 18 minutes. His minutes could be cut somewhat as Joel Freeland works himself into game shape, but the latter has logged two and zero minutes in two games since missing two months due to a shoulder strain.
