An MRI taken Saturday night after the team’s game against Utah revealed the extent of the injury. Lillard will be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks.
Lillard missed four games earlier this season due to a calf strain. He sat out a majority of last season due to a core muscle issue.
Lillard’s calf tightened up in the third quarter Saturday while taking a jump shot.
He’s averaging 26.3 points and 7.0 assists for Portland, which is off to a 10-6 start this season despite losing three of its last four games.
