While the Blazers did acquire Aaron Afflalo from the Nuggets at the trade deadline, the combination of Lillard and Matthews was one of the better guard combos in the NBA.
Despite the tough injury, Matthews is still going all out for his support of the Blazers.
While watching his Blazers from home, Matthews suited up in his uniform, arm sleeves included.
While Matthews can’t move around with the giant cast on his leg and the lengthy recovery time, that didn’t stop him from displaying his team pride.
Getting through the Western Conference without Matthews won’t be easy for Portland, but even from home, he’s supporting the team as if he is out there on the court.
