|Damian Lillard: Picks up ab injury in Olympics|
Lillard played through an abdominal injury during the United States’ run to the gold medal at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo and is scheduled to undergo further testing once he returns stateside, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Scoop: The injury didn't prevent Lillard from playing in the United States' 87-82 win over France on Friday to secure the gold medal, as the point guard logged 27 minutes and finished with 11 points. Abdominal concerns are nothing new for Lillard, who missed a Trail Blazers game in February due to the same issue. Lillard's upcoming tests will shed more light on the severity of the injury, but at this time, the 31-year-old is fully expected to be ready to go for the start of the 2021-22 NBA season.
