At Woodman's Markets in Madison, Wisconsin, sisters Christy Bemis and Cherrie Spencer were among the dozens of weekend shoppers who paid for their groceries and loaded up carts before joining the line at the lottery counter to purchase their shot at the prize.They said they almost never buy lottery tickets, but they were lured in by the size of the jackpot.

Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard suffered a right calf injury in Saturday night’s loss to the Utah Jazz.

The Portland Trail Blazers have been a pleasant surprise early on during the 20202-23 NBA season, as All-Star guard Damian Lillard has his group contending at the very top of the Western Conference right now.

However, Lillard’s presence matters a lot to the Blazers and now they could once again be without him because of a calf injury.

Already missing time earlier this month due to a right calf strain, Lillard left Saturday night’s game against the Utah Jazz early because of what the team called a “right calf injury.”

  Tyron Smith at Practice; Cowboys New Signings Include 6-9 Lineman Updated by the minute, our Cowboys NFL Moves, Free Agency and Trade Tracker: News and views on the roster-building effort NOV 9 O-LINE STUFF The Cowboys had some high-profile O-line fun on Wednesday here at The Star - and engaged in some under-the-radar O-line stuff as well.Dallas signed two offensive tackles, George Moore and Alex Taylor, to the practice squad. Moore (6-6, 325) is from Oregon and went undrafted this year. He was recently with the Packers. Taylor, 25 and undrafted in 2020 after finishing at South Carolina State, is an especially intriguing guy due to his 6-9, 300-pound frame.

Prior to exiting the game, the Trail Blazers’ star had 13 points on 2-14 shooting, 1-12 from three-point range and 7 assists in about 29 minutes of play. Throughout his time on the floor against the Jazz, Lillard did not look right and his exit due to this calf injury made his struggles understandable.

While the extent and severity of Lillard’s injury is unknown at this time, The Oregonian’s Aaron Fentress reported after the game that Damian Lillard was visibly limping, something he was not doing after he injured this same calf against the Miami Heat on October 26.

Trail Blazers reporter Sean Highkin reported after the game that Lillard does not believe this injury is as bad as the first calf injury he suffered, but that missing a couple of games on the team’s upcoming four-game road trip is certainly a possibility.

This is certainly concerning for Trail Blazers fans, as Damian Lillard is the heart-and-soul of the team. Not to mention, he is one of the best scorers in the league and last season without him on the floor, Portland really struggled to remain relevant in the Western Conference.

The Blazers need Lillard healthy and on the floor to have a chance to be a contending team in this league and right now, his health could wind up having major effects on this team yet again.

Their next game will be on the road Monday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, who currently have the third-most wins in the league as of Sunday morning. Further updates on Damian Lillard’s status will be provided by the Trail Blazers sometime over the next 24 hours.
