Sources: Blazers' Lillard (hamstring) out next 2

Portland Trail Blazers All-Star guard Damian Lillard is expected to miss the next two games with a hamstring strain, league sources told ESPN on Friday.

Lillard will be sidelined for Friday’s game against the Denver Nuggets and Saturday’s matchup on the road with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The sixth-year guard, who is averaging 25.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game this season, injured his hamstring during Wednesday’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Sources said Lillard is hoping to return for the Blazers’ home game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Dec. 28.

Portland (16-15) has lost five straight home games.
