Won't play in 'meaningless' games
Lillard told Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports that he will not play again in 2019-20 unless the Trail Blazers have a chance to qualify for the postseason. "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."
