Won't play 'meaningless games'
Lillard said Tuesday in an interview with Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports that he doesn't plan to play in regular season games when the NBA season resumes unless the Trail Blazers have an opportunity to qualify for the playoffs. "If we come back and they're just like, 'We're adding a few games to finish the regular season,' and they're throwing us out there for meaningless games and we don't have a true opportunity to get into the playoffs, I'm going to be with my team because I'm a part of the team," Lillard said. "But I'm not going to be participating. I'm telling you that right now. And you can put that in there."
