Blazers C Chris Kaman (ankle) out Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman will not play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers due to a right ankle sprain, the team announced.

Kaman also missed one game last week while dealing with a back injury. He played a total of 30 minutes in his last two games combined, scoring eight points and grabbing eight rebounds. Kaman has averaged 8.9 points and 6.7 rebounds in 50 games.

The Blazers are 12 1/2-point favorites at home Wednesday.


Blazers C Chris Kaman active Saturday vs. Mavericks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2015) Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman is active for Saturday's matchup with the Mavericks in Dallas.

Kaman was a late scratch from Wednesday's game due to lower back pain. While the team took the step of removing him from the active list, there's no indication of how much playing time the center will see in Saturday's game, if any. He has averaged 9.1 points and 6.8 rebounds in 20.5 minutes per game.

The Blazers are 2 1/2-point underdogs in Dallas Saturday.


Trail Blazers C Chris Kaman questionable Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Trail Blazers announced that Chris Kaman (back) is questionable and Joel Freeland (shoulder) will remain sidelined Saturday night against Dallas, per the team's official website.

Kaman is averaging 9.1 points and 6.8 rebounds through 48 games this season. He was a late scratch Thursday against the Suns due to lower back spasms. Meyers Leonard will see an increased role if the 32-year-old Kaman is unable to play.


Chris Kaman a late scratch for Trail Blazers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) An hour before game time, the Trail Blazers announced that Chris Kaman would not play against the Suns, Thursday night. 

Kaman was a late scratch from the game due to lower back pain. He's averaging 9.1 points and 6.8 rebounds this year. 

Portland is a 4.5 point favorite over the visiting Suns. 


Robin Lopez's return makes Chris Kaman expendable for Fantasy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman is owned in 34 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, a number that should be dropping after Robin Lopez's return from a hand injury Tuesday.

Kaman's production hasn't been terribly impressive overall even with Lopez out, as he averaged just 8.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game over the last 22 games. However, he certainly had some stretches of solid play, including an eight-game stretch where he scored in double figures five times and averaging 9.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

With Lopez back, however, the chances of him being Fantasy relevant are pretty low. He averaged just 19.0 minutes per game prior to Lopez's injury, and was scoreless on three field-goal attempts in Lopez's return. With how many young centers with upside have emerged this season, owning a low-ceiling player like Kaman really doesn't make much sense. 


Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman to play Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman is expected to play Saturday with a sleeve around his leg, reports The Columbian. Kaman, who is also dealing with a reported thumb injury, suffered a leg contusion in Thursday's game.

He is averaging 9.6 points and 6.7 rebounds in 43 games. 

The Blazers are currently 3-point underdogs against the Wizards Saturday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Kaman, who is considered questionable for Saturday's game, has played with a wrap on his thumb/hand for much of the season. It is unclear if this injury will require surgery.

Kaman is averaging 9.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game this season.


Blazers' Chris Kaman questionable, Nicolas Batum doubtful for Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) The Trail Blazers have declared center Chris Kaman as questionable and downgraded forward Nicolas Batum to doubtful for Saturday's game against the Wizards.

Trail Blazers' Chris Kaman goes for double-double on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Trail Blazers rule Lopez, Freeland out of Wednesday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) As expected, the Trail Blazers ruled centers Robin Lopez and Joel Freeland out of Wednesday’s game against the Clippers.

Lopez has been out since mid-December with a fractured right hand. Freeland is dealing with a right shoulder strain, which has kept him out of the last four games.>Freeland told reporters Tuesday he may be out longer than the initial two weeks he was scheduled to be out in early January, reports The Columbian.  Center Chris Kaman has seen his role increase with Freeland and Lopez sidelined.


Blazers' Freeland expected to miss two weeks with shoulder injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2015) An MRI confirmed Trail Blazers center Joel Freeland suffered a right shoulder strain during Saturday’s loss to the Hawks, the team announced.

Freeland is expected to be out of action for the next two weeks. In 31 games, he is averaging 3.5 points and 4.5 rebounds. Center Chris Kaman and forward Thomas Robinson could see an increase in minutes while Freeland is sidelined.


Trail Blazers hopeful Chris Kaman will play Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2014) Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts told reporters he is hopeful center Chris Kaman will be available to play Sunday against the Knicks, reports The Columbian.

Kaman’s wife recently gave birth which caused Kaman to miss Friday’s win over the 76ers. In 19 games, Kaman is averaging 9.8 points and 6.1 rebounds.


Chris Kaman's Fantasy value gets a small boost


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman seems likely to remain in a reserve role for the Blazers even in the wake of Robin Lopez's broken hand, but that doesn't mean his Fantasy value will remain static. At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at Kaman's Fantasy potential for the six weeks while Lopez is expected out:

"However, though the path to a larger role is clearer for him, Kaman still has plenty of questions attached to his value. Specifically, whether he can manage to hold up under the strain of more minutes. Kaman has been notoriously injury-prone in recent years, missing an average of 32 games per season between 2010-11 and 2013-14. He has not averaged more than 21 minutes per game since 2011-12, and might not be able to carry a larger load without setbacks.

Kaman should be productive in a larger role, but hopefully the Blazers are judicious with their usage of him. This team doesn't have the depth to afford losing Kaman as well, so it might be best to cap his minutes around 25 on most nights. Additionally, his production may not increase as much as we might hope, since he's going from anchoring the second unit to playing more with a Blazers' first unit that doesn't leave many shots left over for the fifth option."

Kaman is worth adding in many Fantasy leagues, though he probably shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end top-20 center even in an expanded role. 


Blazers' Robin Lopez indicates he will miss nearly two months


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) After suffering a broken hand Monday against the Spurs, Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez indicated on his twitter account that he’ll miss six to seven weeks.

Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts previously said there was no timetable for Lopez’s return. In 25 games, Lopez is averaging 9.6 points and 7.2 rebounds.

Center Chris Kaman is Lopez’s backup and is averaging 10.0 points and 6.2 rebounds over 19.0 minutes per game.


Weird accident results in stitches in head for Blazers C Kaman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) The availability of Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman for the Wednesday game against the host Lakers is in question after he suffered a head laceration in a bizarre accident Tuesday night.

Kaman received three stitches after being inadvertently bitten by Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov. Kaman backed into Mozgov while attempting to box him out, but as the former pushed the latter, Mozgov fell on Kaman's back and chomped on his head with his teeth.

"I went back pretty hard and I must've hit him in the chest," Kaman explained to The Oregonian. "He kind of folded over and his teeth went down on my head."

Kaman became bloodied and was pulled from the game.


Blazers C Chris Kaman off to flying start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) New center Chris Kaman proved to be a bright light in a Tuesday night of darkness for the Trail Blazers. He hit 5 of 8 shots in 17 minutes for 10 points and added seven rebounds in a 92-73 loss to Utah.

Kaman was effective on midrange jumpers and moves close to the basket, per The Oregonian, which further reported that he rebounded and defended aggressively.

"I'm still trying to feel my way through things," Kaman said. "I know I can score the basketball. I've proven that over 11 years. And if that's what my role needs to be some of the time, I'm OK with that. If it's not, I just have to get to where I'm comfortable with whatever it is. I'm not there yet."


Chris Kaman joins Trail Blazers on two-year deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
