Trail Blazers Mid-Season Forwards Review: A Sad Trombone Chorus

Portland has been steady at the starting forward positions in 2018-19, but steady what? The Portland Trail Blazers crossed the halfway mark of the 2018-19 regular season this week. Their 26-17 record puts them fourth in the ultra-competitive Western Conference. It’s also four games better than they stood at the same time last season. Before the Blazers head into the second half, we’re going to recap how their players have fared so far. We began with their starting backcourt, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Now we tackle their starting forwards: Al-Farouq Aminu, Jake Layman, and Maurice...

Harkless vs Layman at Starting Forward: Who Do You Have?

Harkless vs Layman at Starting Forward: Who Do You Have?

Has Jake Layman unseated an injury-plagued Moe Harkless as Portland’s starting 3? The Portland Trail Blazers are halfway through the 2018-19 season and, as in recent years, are mired in a middling morass of Western Conference teams tussling for playoff seeding. With four weeks remaining until the February 7th NBA trade deadline, serious decisions will need to be made about the make-up of this team as it prepares for play in late April and perhaps beyond. One of the most topical and perhaps polarizing decisions before President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey, and with him Coach...

Jake Layman Getting Chance in Stauskas’ Place

Jake Layman Getting Chance in Stauskas’ Place

With Nik Stauskas struggling, Terry Stotts has turned to Layman to provide wing bench scoring. Portland Trail Blazers forward Jake Layman has gone from starter, to forgotten man, to somewhere in the middle this season, and we’re not even at the halfway point. As of this week, he is once again getting an opportunity to play meaningful minutes for the Blazers. With Nik Stauskas in a major funk over the last three weeks, Terry Stotts finally pulled the plug - at least for now - and inserted Layman in the rotation for Stauskas this weekend. It wasn’t an altogether surprising move; the bench...
