Lillard missed the past 4 games and is questionable Wednesday. He'll go through Wednesday morning's shootaround and then determine his status. Coach Stotts said that if there was a game Tuesday, Lillard probably wouldn't play, which obviously doesn't sound good for his chances of playing Wednesday. However, Lillard also told reporters that his foot is pain-free, so he is improving.

Out plantar fasciitis Open link
12/21/2015 6:34 PM
Lillard is out for Monday's game (plantar fasciitis). He said that he doesn't think the injury will keep him out long. Plantar fasciitis lingers. He might have it for a considerable amount of time going forward, so it's possible Lillard will just play through the injury most nights moving forward, or the team could ask him to sit out and rest it for a couple games to see how it heals. Monday's game is the first regular season game Lillard has missed in his career, so there's a good chance he tries to play through the injury as long as he can moving forward.

Damian shooting great so far in the pre-season. Can we expect to see a bump in efficiency after his output so far? He is shooting over 50% so far
We do monitor that when making adjustments, but a players A/TO rate won't stay constant during his career, it will fluctuate like many other stats, but it is something we look at closely.
Cases I noticed on A/T (not saying they are necessarily wrong): Matthews's A/T is the lowest in the last 4 years; Melo's A/T is projected to be highest (by a somewhat clear margin) in his career; Smart's A/T got a significant bump after remaining constant for past 2 years; Similarly for Beverley.
For example, after the assist number of a player is set, it may make sense to set the turnover number by projecting a A/T rate, instead of looking at the TO numbers from the past years and this year’s changes and try to project.

Thanks Josh! Those changes made sense. In general, it would be greatly appreciated if the A/T rates could be monitored a bit more when adjusting the projections for assists, as more leagues now chose to include A/T as a category.

We did drop the TO rate of both McCollum and Lillard over last season, and I've gone in and had a look at Aminu as well and made some adjustments. You bring up a good point, the changes in A/To for CJ is not huge, in fact with the adjustment made, Dame's rises, but it's fairly similar to last season
100% (2) agree 
Regarding the impact of adding Evan Turner to Blazer's players, it made sense that the assists number of Lillard, CJ, and Aminu all decreased as a result, but should their A/T numbers all decrease as well? It did not seem to happen to the Boston players when Turner went there.

Thanks everyone on the BBM team to make the site even better than before!
