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.
