Top Nassir Little News

  • Suns' Nassir Little: Headed to Phoenix

    Little (core) was traded to the Suns on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal between Phoenix, Portland and Milwaukee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The deal also sends Damian Lillard to Milwaukee, Jusuf Nurkic to the Suns, and Jrue Holiday and Deandre Ayton to Portland.

    Little, Keon Johnson and Grayson Allen all head to Phoenix in the blockbuster deal and will likely compete for depth roles on a top-heavy Suns squad. Little is a proven defender at the NBA level, but his offense has been a mystery. After a career-high year in 2021-22, Little took a step back in 2022-23 from a production standpoint, but he did shoot a career-high 36.7 percent on 2.9 three-point attempts per game. If he can maintain that efficiency from long range, Little could emerge as a quality three-and-D player for Phoenix.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Undergoes surgery

    The Trail Blazers said Thursday that Little underwent a core muscle surgery on his left side, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.

    Little underwent a similar operation on his right side last year. It is currently unclear if the 22-year-old forward will miss any of the 2023-24 season, but Little's surgery will require him to spend a good portion of the offseason recovering.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Sidelined for finale

    Little (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Warriors.

    He'll conclude the season with five consecutive absences on account of a left ankle sprain. Little appeared in 54 games (four starts) during his fourth NBA campaign, averaging 6.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.1 three-pointers and 0.9 assists in 18.1 minutes per contest.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Listed out once again

    Little (ankle) is listed as out for Saturday against the Clippers.

    This will be the fourth missed game in a row for Little, and we wouldn't be surprised to see him miss Sunday's season finale against the Warriors as well. The Blazers will continue to field a skeleton crew in the meantime.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Remains sidelined Thursday

    Little (ankle) is out for Thursday's game versus the Spurs.

    Little will miss his third straight game Thursday due to a left ankle sprain. His next chance to play is Saturday's matchup with the Clippers.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Out Tuesday

    Little (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game in Memphis.

    Little is set to miss his second straight game due to the ankle sprain, and with Portland only playing another three times after Tuesday, it's possible Little has already played his final game of the season. Expect big minutes for Matisse Thybulle and Kevin Knox Tuesday evening.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Ruled out Sunday

    Little (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game versus Minnesota.

    Little won't play Sunday due to a left ankle sprain he suffered against Sacramento. Trendon Watford (ankle), Kevin Knox and Matisse Thybulle will likely receive extended minutes in his absence. Little's next chance to suit up is Tuesday's matchup with Memphis.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Suffers left ankle injury

    Little won't return to Friday's game against the Kings due to a left ankle injury.

    Little played just 12 minutes before going down with the injury, finishing with seven points (2-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one steal. Following a two-game run in the starting five, Little had returned to the bench Friday with Trendon Watford (ankle) back in action. Watford's return coupled with the fact that Little is now dealing with an injury of his own may make it difficult for Little to deliver meaningful fantasy output over Portland's final five games of the campaign.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Moves to bench

    Little isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game versus the Kings, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Trendon Watford will replace Nassir Little in the starting lineup Friday. Little is averaging 6.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 18.6 minutes across his previous 28 games coming off the bench this season.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Plays season-high 40 minutes

    Little ended with 10 points (4-17 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 120-80 loss to the Kings.

    Little struggled with his efficiency in Wednesday's loss. He is now shooting 7-of-27 from the field and 1-of-13 from three over his last two games since being inserted into the starting lineup.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Starting Monday

    Little will move into the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pelicans, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Trendon Watford will be sitting out Monday's game after tweaking his ankle Sunday, so Little will replace him in the first unit and should have plenty of time to shine for a Portland team that is resting most of its main guys. He's coming off a 28-point performance, so Little could be someone to consider as a streamer or low-budget option in daily fantasy leagues.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Erupts for 28 points

    Little supplied 28 points (11-21 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and six rebounds in 31 minutes during Sunday's 118-112 loss to the Thunder.

    Little shocked many with his production Sunday evening by splashing three triples and scoring a season-high 28 points. The North Carolina product had been in the midst of a cold stretch entering Sunday, as he'd been held to eight total points over his previous three matchups. However, he was handed more opportunities with Jerami Grant (quad) and Jusuf Nurkic (knee) out of commission, and Trendon Watford (ankle) also left the matchup early. Fantasy managers should expect Little's playing time to drop back down to the 15-to-20-minute range once Portland shakes the injury bug.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Good to go Friday

    Little (concussion) is available for Friday's game versus the Bulls, Danny Marang of 1080 The Fan Portland reports.

    Little will return to the lineup Friday after being upgraded from probable to available. Little could receive extended minutes with Jerami Grant (quadriceps), Jusuf Nurkic (knee), Anfernee Simons (foot) and Damian Lillard (calf) all out.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Upgraded to probable

    Little (concussion) is probable for Friday's game versus the Bulls.

    Little has been upgraded from questionable to probable after missing the previous game with a concussion. The 22-year-old forward is averaging 3.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18.6 minutes while shooting just 25 percent from the field across his last five appearances.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Questionable vs. Bulls

    Little (concussion) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bulls.

    A concussion kept Little out for Wednesday's win over the Jazz. Little's presence is especially important with the Trail Blazers dealing with a myriad of injuries, including the absence of Jerami Grant (quadriceps).

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Questionable against Utah

    Little is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Jazz due to a concussion.

    It is unclear when Little suffered his concussion, but he still has a chance to play Wednesday. If he's unable to suit up, Keon Johnson, Kevin Knox and Jabari Walker are candidates to see extended minutes against the Jazz.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Out at Utah

    Little (concussion) is unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    This is unfortunate for Little and the Trail Blazers, as the team is shorthanded on the wing with both Jerami Grant (quad) and Anfernee Simons (foot) sidelined. More minutes could be available for Cam Reddish, Matisse Thybulle and Trendon Watford.

  • Trail Blazers' Nassir Little: Cleared to play vs. Clips

    Little (illness) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Clippers.

    Little was held out of Friday's loss to the Celtics, but he'll be back in action and should be set for his usual allotment of minutes -- 17.7 MPG over last 10 games -- off the bench. The 2019 first-round pick hasn't been fantasy relevant in most leagues this season.
