Aminu (ankle) will be sidelined two-to-three weeks, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite his X-rays coming back clean, Aminu's right ankle sprain is apparently serious enough to keep him sidelined up to three weeks. He's been a significant member of the team's rotation this season, garnering 30.1 minutes per game and producing 9.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 blocks. While he was out Thursday against the Lakers, Noah Vonleh saw 15 minutes, Caleb Swanigan saw 14 and Zach Collins received 11. At this point, it appears his workload may be absorbed by committee.

Aminu (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aminu sprained his ankle during Wednesday's game against the Jazz and with the Trail Blazers heading into the second game of a back-to-back set, they'll avoid bringing their forward back too soon. He'll sit out Thursday's contest, with his next opportunity to take the floor coming Sunday against the Thunder. With Aminu out, Evan Turner, Maurice Harkless and Ed Davis should all be in line for expanded roles in the frontcourt.

X-rays on Aminu's wrist and ankle came back negative, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aminu got banged up pretty good in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz, tweaking his left wrist and spraining his right ankle. Thankfully, neither injury appears to be anything overly serious, though he'll still be considered questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers. Look his status to clear up closer to tip.

Aminu suffered a sprained right ankle during Wednesday's game against the Jazz and will not return, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aminu exited the game after turning his ankle late in the fourth quarter while going for an offensive rebound. He had eight points and six rebounds in 26 minutes of action before injuring himself. Aminu will sit out the rest of Wednesday's contest -- which is headed to overtime -- and can tentatively be considered questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers.

Aminu provided 19 points (6-11 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block across 33 minutes in Thursday's 104-103 loss to the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Aminu was impressive across the board Thursday and served as a valuable source of complementary scoring alongside Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. The outing served as Aminu's second double-digit scoring effort over the first five games, while his respective success rates of 54.5 percent and 62.5 percent from the field and three-point range were each high-water marks on the season. Despite some offensive inconsistency, Aminu's ability to offer robust production other categories keeps him viable in the majority of fantasy formats.

Aminu scored 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt) while adding 16 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 35 minutes during Friday's 114-96 win over the Pacers.

EDGE Analysis

With C.J. McCollum back in the starting lineup, it was Aminu who stayed in the starting five while Evan Turner moved to the bench, and the 27-year-old forward responded with the kind of robust multi-category performance Blazers fans were used to seeing from Nic Batum a few years ago. Aminu's track record suggests he won't be able to maintain this level of production, but he's now pulled down double-digit boards in back-to-back games to begin the season, which could make him an early waiver-wire darling in many fantasy leagues.

Aminu tallied six points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-7 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists across 20 minutes during Sunday's 134-106 win over the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

While Aminu has shown some promise as a rebounder and defender this preseason -- grabbing 15 boards, swiping four steals and blocking two shots across 51 total minutes -- his shot has been off. Through three games, he's shot a combined 4-for-11 from the field and 1-for-6 from beyond the arc. Aminu is likely a better real-life than fantasy player due to his defense on the wing, though it would be encouraging to see signs that he may improve over last year's averages of 8.7 points, 7.4 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.1 threes and 1.0 steals per game. That has yet to happen.

Aminu provided five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and eight rebounds across 17 minutes in Thursday's 106-101 preseason win over the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

Aminu drew the start at power forward Thursday after fellow veteran Ed Davis took his turn with the first unit in Tuesday's exhibition opener. Aminu provided his typically solid work on the boards during his time on the floor, reprising his role from last season when he posted the second-highest rebounding average (7.4) of his seven-year career. While he's likely to open the coming campaign on the second unit, Aminu's ability to play either forward spot and provide scoring from anywhere on the court is highly likely to afford him plenty of playing time.

Aminu will draw the start during Thursday's preseason game against the Raptors, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ed Davis drew the start at power forward during the team's preseason opener, but it's Aminu who gets the nod Thursday. Coach Terry Stotts stated that no member of the team will play more than 24 minutes Thursday.

Aminu contributed 25 points (7-12 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 35 minutes during a 128-103 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Aminu was just one point shy of his season high in scoring as he finished with 25 points and matched a season high with five three-pointers made. He was the only player on the team other than Damian Lillard to score more than 14 points. Aminu had an up and down season, and this performance came in a somewhat meaningless game, as the team was getting blown out for the entire game.
