Lillard is expected to see his usual minutes load Wednesday against Dallas, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports.

Both Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) are slated to see normal minutes in the regular season finale as the banged-up Blazers prepare for a playoff run. Lillard struggled in his last outing Monday versus Oklahoma City, scoring only 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes. He's still averaging 21.0 points and 5.8 assists for the month, though.

Lillard scored 36 points (14-26 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with four rebounds, two assists and one block in 39 minutes Monday against the Nets.

Lillard carried the offensive load Monday with LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) out of action. He has made at least two three-pointers in four of his last five games and continues to provide fantasy owners with excellent overall production.

Lillard scored 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with seven assists, four rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes during Monday's win over the Suns.

He got the entire fourth quarter off in a blowout win, otherwise Lillard would have been able to pad his line even further. After a couple of weak scoring efforts over the weekend, look for him to get his point total back into the 20s on Wednesday against the Clippers.

Lillard struggled Friday against the Suns, posting just 11 points (4-15 FG, 1-2 FT, 2-6 3Pt) to go with four rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes of action.

Lillard has been shooting just 39 percent from the field over the last five games, and it appears he's in the midst of a slight cold streak in terms of shooting percentage. Still, he's logging 21.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 6.4 assists, and 0.6 steals per game during that span -- resembling his season averages. That being said, owners won't mind a bit of inefficiency from the young guard, who has been fantastic all season.

Lillard had a cold shooting night Friday against the Magic, posting 18 points (6-15 FG, 6-6 FT, 0-5 3Pt) to go with four rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 37 minutes of action.

Lillard has cooled down over recent games, averaging just 16.3 points over the last three contests. He's still seeing plenty of minutes, so he'll continue to have the opportunity to post big numbers. Owners will have to hope he gets out of his slump soon, as the fantasy playoffs is taking way, and Lillard hasn't been producing first-round value recently.

Lillard had his most effective shooting night of the season in a win over the Pistons on Friday, scoring 28 points (9-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and dishing out nine assists in 29 minutes.

This was a great turnaround game for Lillard, who was shooting 39 percent from the floor in his five previous games, including a 1-for-13 night March 3 against the Clippers. Lillard now has at least 14 points in each of his past four games, and has eight or more assists in his past three.

Lillard had a tough outing from the field, going 1-of-13 on field goals to finish with five points. He made up for it with a career-high 18 rebounds and added four assists.

The Clippers keyed on stopping Lillard throughout the game, which partially explains his uncharacteristically bad shooting performance. He did miss several open looks, though. He was a beast on the boards and finished just one rebound behind DeAndre Jordan in the game. Lillard should bounce back in the scoring column Thursday against Dallas

Lillard was named the Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday, the Blazer's Edge reports.

Lillard led the Blazers to three victories over the Spurs, Thunder, and Kings, the latter of which occurred away from the friendly confines of Moda Center.

Lillard posted 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and five turnovers in 35 minutes during Friday's defeat in Utah.After knocking down two treys en route to eight points in the first quarter, Lillard was lackadaisical thereafter, especially with his passes, which were awry more often than not. He's matched his season-low in dimes in back-to-back games, while racking up nine turnovers during that span. Although his shot was on point, he's still hitting threes at a 21-percent clip in February, and 25 percent since the calendar flipped to 2015, meaning his scoring has nowhere to go up over the final 28 games of the season.
