Wesley Matthews scored 22 points to lead the Blazers in Saturday's Game 3 loss to the Spurs, and while the Blazers' starters all had big lines, the Spurs led this one wire-to-wire for the easy win.

Damian Lillard hit just 7-of-21 shots and missed all six of his 3-pointers to finish with 21 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge also scored 21 with 12 rebounds, but hit just 9-of-23 shots. Nicolas Batum was solid with 20 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers, while Robin Lopez added 13 points and severn rebounds. The Blazers' starters might be running on fumes after playing so many regular-season minutes, and their bench managed just six points tonight. Don't be surprised if the Spurs close this series out with a sweep on Monday night, as they're simply playing at a different level than the weary Blazers.

Wes Matthews played 33 minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday with 10 points, four boards, six assists and two 3-pointers.

He received an IV back on Sunday and he looked healthy tonight. Matthews is one of the biggest warriors in the NBA and has played in every game in four of his five seasons with just 13 DNPs in 2012-13. He's slowed down a bit from his hot start, but is still one of the better wing scorers in the NBA.

Wesley Matthews (flu) received four liters of saline solution via an IV prior to Sunday's game, but he still scored 15 points with two 3-pointers and five assists in 32 minutes.

Owners can be thankful that the illness didn't lead to a sudden DNP, and all signs point to Matthews playing in Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers. He doesn't miss games unless it's absolutely necessary, but we'll keep him on the injury report as a precaution.

Wesley Matthews made just one 3-pointer during Saturday's ugly 124-94 loss to the Bobcats, scoring a total of 15 points with one steal and one turnover.

It's the first time this season in which he's failed to record even one dime or an assist and he hasn't done that since 2012. Matthews was coming off a 28-point game on Friday and he'll look to get back on track on Monday against the Heat. While Miami's defense is solid, they do allow the fourth-most triples per game on the season.

Wesley Matthews matched his season-high 28 points during Thursday's win over the Wizards to go with one board, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He pumped in five treys on Tuesday and his shot has suddenly come back. Matthews' efficiency has dipped a bit since the All-Star break, so his fantasy owners have to be pleased to see him catch fire again. He'll look to keep the party going against the Bobcats on Saturday.

Matthews blew up for 26 points on Friday and Sunday, but had scored 11 or fewer points in his five previous games. The Blazers' starters have played a ton of minutes this season because they don't utilize their bench, and the wear and tear could be catching up to Matthews.

Wes Matthews poured in 26 points vs. the Rockets on Sunday, making four 3-pointers and 12-of-13 free throws with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block.

Matthews has only attempted double-digit free throws two times this season and it was nice to see him in attack-mode, considering he's an 82.9 percent shooter at the charity stripe. His big game couldn't prevent the Blazers from falling in overtime, however, dropping them to 3-2 in OT games this season.

Wesley Matthews left Wednesday's game with an undisclosed injury and went to the locker room, but returned to finish with eight points and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

The Blazers didn't need him in tonight's blowout, but the fact he played so many minutes leads us to believe his injury wasn't a big deal. Watch for an update on Thursday, but for now, we're assuming Matthews will be good to go on Saturday against the Nuggets.

Wesley Matthews hit just 2-of-10 shots for 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in Tuesday's loss.

He was 0-for-4 from downtown and is shooting just 35 percent from the floor over his last five games. He's still averaging 15.6 points over that stretch, but his field goal percentage has been a sore spot for his owners. He's simply in a slump and will hopefully break out of it after the All Star break.
