Skal Labissiere will remain out with left knee inflammation after injuring his knee in the 1st quarter of Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Portland Trail Blazers announced that the first MRI on his knee was “inconclusive” and that Labissiere will undergo a second. It was also announced Skal Labissiere will not join the Blazers on their upcoming 5 game road trip.

The Blazers have been ravaged by injuries this season, especially in the front court. Jusuf Nurkic has been out since last March, healing from a broken leg and won’t likely return till February.

Zach Collins will be re-evaluated in March after separating his shoulder two games into the season. Pau Gasol was waived after his broken foot continued to have issues healing.

Rodney Hood of course is out for the season after tearing his Achilles in the prior game against the Lakers.

The Portland Trail Blazers have recalled Moses Brown from the G league.
