Desperate not to win any games that might affect their current draft position, the Trail Blazers will have as many as ten players out for this contest via a combination of legitimate and semi-legitimate injuries.

Well, dull for those of us who don’t enjoy the prospect of a completely one-sided game. It’d be a great game to grab tickets for if you’re looking for a guaranteed win though, because this is about as close to a guarantee as you’re likely to see. And due to a scheduling quirk, you can see it two games in a row if you want!
