Nassir Little (protocols) available for Trail Blazers Thursday

Portland Trail Blazers small forward Nassir Little (health and safety protocols) is available to play Thursday versus the Miami Heat.

What It Means:

Little was initially listed out for Thursday but he and Anfernee Simons have both cleared protocols and will return after missing the last contest. Little typically isn't in the rotation but he may find playing time Thursday since the Trail Blazers have agreed to trade away Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood to the Toronto Raptors.

numberFire's models project Little for 26.1 minutes and 17.6 FanDuel points on Thursday. He has a salary of $3,500 on the five-game slate.
