Kaman Kaman is questionable for Saturday's game with a leg contusion, but it was also announced that he's been playing with a torn tendon in his right thumb, the Oregonian reports.

Since this is the first we're hearing of the thumb injury, it appears to be something Kaman can adequately play with. He's shooting 49 percent on the season, which is right in line with Kaman's career mark.

Kaman is dealing with a leg contusion and is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Wizards.

Kaman is in store for added minutes on the court moving forward with the extended absence of LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb). However, Kaman will have to be examined after Saturday's morning shootaround to determine if he'll even be available against the Wizards.

Kaman started against the Heat on Thursday and put up 10 points, nine rebounds, and two blocks in 21 minutes.

Kaman also started Monday and is currently averaging 24.5 minutes over the last two contests. Even though he seems to be the new starter with injuries to Robin Lopez (hand) and Joel Freeland (shoulder), Kaman has been given a marginally increased role with the team when considering that he averages 19.2 minutes per game this season. This small promotion will likely continue for as long as either Freeland or Lopez stay sidelined, and at this point it would appear that Kaman likely has around two weeks left before Freeland returns to the court.

Kaman will likely draw the start Thursday against Miami, per coach Terry Stotts.

With Joel Freeland (shoulder) sidelined two weeks and Robin Lopez (hand) still out, Kaman is the next man up in the Portland frontcourt. He started Monday's win over the Lakers and put up eight points and 11 rebounds in 27 minutes. Barring an unforeseen move, Kaman should be the starter for the next several games, so long as Freeland and Lopez remain out.

Kaman got the start at center Monday, scoring eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 FT) with 11 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 27 minutes during a win over the Lakers.

Thomas Robinson saw just 13 minutes, so it looks like Kaman will be the guy in the middle for the Blazers over the next couple of weeks. Don't expect those block numbers every night, but he should be a modest source of points and boards as long as he remains in the starting lineup.

Kaman started at center for Portland on Monday against the Lakers, the Oregonian reports.

There were conflicting reports ahead of Monday's game on whether Kaman or Thomas Robinson would get the start, although Kaman ended up in the starting five which was announced only moments before tipoff. He is currently averaging 18.8 minutes per game and may see a slight increase in that number for Monday's game, albeit limited.

Kaman was believed to sit out of this game due to the birth of his child. However, he ended up playing this game and finished with 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 FT) nine rebounds, two assists, and a steal in 20 minutes.

Kaman came through for his team, despite previously stating that he would miss this game. With few bodies toppled around the rim, Kaman was able to grab a healthy amount of rebounds in a limited amount of time. As long as Lopez and Aldridge miss time he's going to be able to put up good numbers in the short term.

Kaman (personal) will play in Sunday's game against the Knicks, the Oregonian reports.

Kaman had to miss Friday's game due to a family issue as well as Saturday's practice, but will be available for their game against the Knicks on Sunday. He'll most likely see a ton of time with both LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez sidelined, so he could be a solid fantasy option due to that extra increase in playing time. AS soon as they're back, Kaman will lose some of his fantasy value.

Kaman (personal) did not practice Saturday, but could return to the team in time to play Sunday, Erik Gundersen of the Columbian reports.

Normally Kaman's return would not be particularly relevant to fantasy, but with teammates Robin Lopez (hand) and LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) both likely out Sunday, Kaman will have significant fantasy value for that game, and any additional games that Aldridge misses due to his illness.
