Comparing Notes: Tre Mann and Anfernee Simons

Tre Mann’s game this season has been, in one word, smooth. Mann has dazzled with his elite shot creation and separation skills, as well as large scoring outbursts. Mann’s best game of the season came last week against Boston, as his potential was on full display when he dropped a career high 35 points. That night he drilled seven triples and notched a 20 point quarter.

Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Officially done for season

Portland announced Monday that Simons will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to patellar tendinopathy in his left knee. In addition to Simons, Jusuf Nurkic (foot) and Eric Bledsoe (Achilles) have also been shut down for what's left of the season. It's an unceremonious end to the campaign for Simons, who stepped into a larger role with Damian Lillard (abdomen) missing extensive time and CJ McCollum getting shipped to New Orleans at the deadline. The 2018 first-round pick will close his fourth NBA season with averages of 17.3 points, 3.9 assists, 3.1 three-pointers and 2.6 rebounds per game. He's on pace to lead the Blazers in total points, three-pointers and assists for the season.

Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons: Still out Monday

Simons (quad) remains out Monday against the Thunder. Simons hasn't played in nearly a month as he deals with tendinopathy in his left knee. As a young player on a developmental roster, he's not the type of player who would typically be sat for tanking purposes, but it's possible the Blazers simply exercise caution and continue holding Simons out down the stretch.
