Lillard, 32, has appeared in five games already this season, compiling averages of 31.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists, shooting just about 50 percent from the field.

The Blazers have managed to stay afloat in his absence, compiling a 6-3 record heading into Monday’s road game against the Heat.

It’s part of a six-game road trip that started with two games in Phoenix, and will also include stops against the Hornets, Pelicans and Mavericks, respectively.

Along with Lillard, guard Anfernee Simons has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable with left foot soreness.

The Trail Blazers are the only team this season to beat the Suns, having down it twice.
