The Portland Trail Blazers received some good news recently, as forward Al-Farouq Aminu has been cleared from his minutes restriction. However, he won’t be reinserted to the starting lineup just yet by head coach Terry Stotts, according to Joe Freeman of The Oregonian.

The 27-year-old Wake Forest product missed 13 games last month due to a right ankle sprain. He only returned to action on November 30 versus the Milwaukee Bucks, and has only seen an average of 24 minutes of playing time since coming back.
