Just when it seemed like this rebuilding of season of “process” and “growth” couldn’t get any more trying, the Trail Blazers encountered perhaps their most ominous moment of the season Sunday in Miami.

After allowing a more battled-tested team to steal another winnable game away from them, this was the scene in the Blazers’ locker room afterward: All-Star Damian Lillard limped around in noticeable pain with a bout of plantar fasciitis in his left heel.

The Blazers’ best and most reliable player had been dealing with pain heading into Sunday’s game and he aggravated the ailment in the third quarter against the Heat.

Sources: John Beilein Not Expected to Remain Cavaliers Head Coach Beyond Season

Cavaliers coach John Beilein is not expected to remain as head coach beyond the end of the season, league and team sources have told The Athletic. The terms of the separation, and the exact timing of it, are not yet known, but momentum is building toward his exit.

Several factors have come into play around the Cavaliers and Beilein in regard to his job position leading to the potential end of his tenure before the end of the five-year contract he signed in May — including the team’s on- and off-court struggles and the personal toll his son’s resignation at Niagara University has taken on him — league sources said.

Patrick Beilein resigned from Niagara in October under tumultuous circumstances without having coached a single game. That situation has had an impact on John throughout his first season in Cleveland, according to sources. Beilein has never truly adjusted or felt comfortable since making the move to the NBA, according to people with knowledge of the situation.
