Damian Lillard (abdominal surgery) out for Trail Blazers 6-8 weeks

Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard is planning to have surgery in the near future for a lingering abdominal injury, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

What It Means:

Lillard, who hasn't played since the end of December, will be re-evaluated in 6-8 weeks. Anfernee Simons should continue to start and play an expanded role while Lillard is out. C.J. McCollum (lung) is also in line for a larger usage rate whenever he returns.

Simons is averaging 32.4 minutes and 34.1 FanDuel points per game without Lillard this season.
