Portland Trail Blazers Damian Lilliards said he will not participate in Saturday’s Three-Point Contest or Sunday’s All-Star Game after suffering a groin injury in Wednesday’s 111-104 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, according to The Athletic’s Jason Quick.

The 29-year-old added that Devin Booker would be a deserving replacement for All-Star Weekend. The Phoenix Suns guard was notably snubbed in January despite averaging 27.1 points and 6.4 assists per game leading up to the announcement of the All-Star reserves.

Lillard currently leads the Trail Blazers with 29.7 points and 7.9 assists per contest – both career highs. With Wednesday’s loss dropping Portland to 25-31 (.446) – four games behind Memphis for the eighth and final playoff seed in the Western Conference – the Trail Blazers will hope for a speedy recovery for their franchise player.

Lillard would have appeared in his fifth All-Star Game.
