On August 12th Nassir Little collapsed during the Blazers’ shoot around with a syncopal episode. Syncopal is the medical term for fainting or sudden loss of consciousness. The Blazers have ruled him out for the next two weeks, which means he may be available in the second round of the playoffs if Portland makes it that far.
Little hasn’t played in the restart, missing the last three games for obvious reasons.
The Blazers bench is a little thinner without both him and Zach Collins.
We’ll keep you updated on his status and health as we hear more.
