Blazers’ Lillard Participates in First Full Practice


Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is getting closer to a return, but just how soon won’t be known until sometime Sunday when they’re scheduled to face the Denver Nuggets in the Mile High City.

The two-time All-Star went through his first full practice Saturday at the Blazers practice facility, participating in all of the same drills his teammates did.

Lillard says he doesn’t anticipate having a minutes restriction upon his return, but he also admitted that the subject hasn’t come up yet.
