Damian Lillard Injury Update: Latest on Bucks superstar's status ahead of road game against Denver Nuggets (February 12)

Milwaukee Bucks v Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard injury update for February 12, 2024.

Damian Lillard has only missed five games in his first season with the Milwaukee Bucks. He has been relatively healthy compared to his last two years with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he missed 77 regular-season games. So, what's the latest on the All-Star starter's injury?

Lillard has been fabulous for the Bucks, averaging 25.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game. The team has been off to a rough start under new coach Doc Rivers, but a veteran like Lillard is likely capable of leading Milwaukee to another surge along Giannis Antetokounmpo.

According to the latest Bucks' injury report, Lillard is available to play after being listed as questionable with a left ankle sprain. He has been dealing with the injury over the last week, missing games on Feb. 6 and 8. He returned on Friday in the win over the Charlotte Hornets, scoring 26 points.

What happened to Damian Lillard?

Damian Lillard has missed two of the last three games for the Milwaukee Bucks due to a left ankle sprain.

He suffered the injury in the Bucks' win over the Dallas Mavericks on Feb. 2. It was a minor injury, and he played through it the next game two days later against the Utah Jazz.

However, the ankle did not feel alright in the next two games, so the Bucks gave him much-needed time to recover. Lillard returned on Saturday and showed no effects of the left ankle problem. He's likely to play against the defending champions but should be considered a game-time decision.
