In the series with the Lakers, he was putting up 28.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per contest.

The knee issues is just the latest injury Dame has been dealing with. He left game two after dislocating his left index finger.

Should Dame not be able to go or at a diminished level, the Blazers will need increased offensive contributions from C. J. McCollum, Jusef Nurkic and Carmelo Anthony.

The team also announced a second MRI would occur Tuesday afternoon.
