Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard will not play in Friday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs because of right hamstring tendinopathy.

It will mark just the third game Lillard has missed this season and just his second since Feb. 6.

The 30-year-old is averaging 28.7 points on 44 percent shooting and 7.7 assists for the 31-23 Blazers, who are sixth in the Western Conference.

Lillard, who has led Portland to the playoffs in each of the last seven seasons, is in his ninth NBA campaign after the Blazers selected him sixth overall out of Weber State in 2012.

The five-time All-Star and five-time All-NBA player has evaded missing extended time because of injury for much of his career, notably playing and starting all 82 games in each of his first three seasons. He has never missed more than nine games in a single year.
