PORTLAND: GUARDS: DAMIAN LILLARD is for real, an elite shooter and a natural running the pick-and-roll. Though we're a little worried about what will happen if pick-and-pop partner LaMarcus Aldridge is dealt sometime this season . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS will be battling for playing time with Portland loading up on wings . . . C.J. MCCOLLUM can play either guard spot, but primarily he's a scorer and a potentially elite shooter. He is, however, out a few months with a foot fracture. . . MO WILLIAMS will provide the Blazers with a veteran guard presence who is more than capable of lighting it up on any given night. He is, however, a major defensive liability'If he straightens out his jumper, WILL BARTON could end up being a solid second-unit player . . . EARL WATSON gives them a much more reliable back-up point guard than Ronnie Price was . . . Sharpshooter ALLEN CRABBE will likely find himself in the D-League early on. FORWARDS: LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE's name will be in trade rumors all season, but it won't affect his role as this team's No. 1 option . . . NICOLAS BATUM will continue to do a little bit of everything, playing point forward to allow Lillard to play off the ball at times, and serving as a dangerous three-point shooter . . . DORELL WRIGHT can lock opponents down when he wants to. He'll push Wesley Matthews for minutes . . . Portland will be the next team to try to squeeze production out of 2012 No. 5 pick THOMAS ROBINSON. After Sacramento and Houston both gave up on him almost immediately, Robinson in danger of falling off the NBA map . . . VICTOR CLAVER provides some energy as a second-unit bit player . . . JOEL FREELAND has six fouls to give. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ will be a better fit alongside Aldridge than J.J. Hickson was. Lopez isn't skilled, but he can take some defensive responsibilities away from Aldridge . . . MEYERS LEONARD is, as expected, still a work in progress. He's enormous and there's some raw talent, but he too often looks lost.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: It was a rocky offseason for JEFF TEAGUE, who looked like a goner at one point. Instead, he'll be the focal point of Atlanta's offense . . . Coming off a torn ACL, resident gunner LOUIS WILLIAMS is a question mark entering the season, especially as a guy who relied so much on quickness and explosiveness. He may not be right again until 2014-15 . . . JOHN JENKINS was rock solid as a rookie and should see a bump in playing time with DeShawn Stevenson gone. Jenkins is a legit shooter who can hold his own defensively . . . Rookie DENNIS SCHRODER is a year or two away from consistent minutes, but the penniless man's Rajon Rondo comparisons aren't off . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM is a middling talent destined for a minor role. FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was lost in the shuffle in Utah last year, but he'll be a significant part of this offense in Atlanta. He's a well-rounded power forward and may prove to be a better fit than Josh Smith was for the Hawks . . . KYLE KORVER is coming off a huge year and will play major minutes at both wing spots again . . . A shadow of his former self, ELTON BRAND will rotate in at power forward and center . . . This generation's junkyard dog, DEMARRE CARROLL gives Atlanta some defensive options on the wing and energy off the bench. Outside of some transition baskets, he's a non-factor on offense . . . Euro veteran PERO ANTIC is a finesse stretch four who provides frontcourt depth. CENTERS: After playing a lot of power forward alongside Zaza Pachulia last year, AL HORFORD will spend most of this season at center. With Josh Smith gone, he's poised to have his biggest offensive numbers ever . . . GUSTAVO AYON has proven capable of eating up some space on the second unit. He'll be the second big off the bench after Elton Brand.

*Trail Blazers-Hawks Preview* =============================


Portland (45-27) at Atlanta (31-38), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Help could be on the way for the slumping Portland Trail Blazers, who haven't been able to stop the bleeding.

The Atlanta Hawks also appear to be falling apart down the stretch.

The Trail Blazers hope to get LaMarcus Aldridge back as they go for their first season sweep of the Hawks in six years Thursday night.

It's been a rough three weeks for Portland (45-27), which has dropped eight of 11 to put its playoff hopes at risk. The Blazers are just ahead of Golden State, Memphis, Phoenix and Dallas, who are battling for the Western Conference's final three postseason berths.

Portland's woes continued in Tuesday's 95-85 loss at last-place Orlando, dropping to 0-3 on a five-game road trip. Robin Lopez had a season-best 20 points and 13 rebounds against the Magic, who snapped a nine-game losing streak.

"This is a very, extremely disappointing loss and in fact it was a game we needed to have," coach Terry Stotts said. "We've got 10 games left. There's got to be a sense of urgency every game. Playoff race is tight. We'd like to look forward, but we've got four teams that are right on our heels, and every game has a new sense of urgency."

Damian Lillard is averaging 18.7 points while shooting 29.4 percent during the trek, down from his season marks of 21.1 and 42.3. The Blazers have lost 13 of 17 on the road.

"I think we are just in a new territory for some guys," Lopez told the team's official website. "It is late in the season, and the playoffs haven't started but essentially the playoffs have started. We need to realize that."

With his team struggling, Aldridge is eager to get back on the court. The All-Star forward, averaging team highs of 23.4 points and 11.1 rebounds, has missed the last seven games with back trouble.

"Makes me want to play even worse? Yes it does. But it's not about me, it's about the medical staff and them saying I can play," said Aldridge, who is a game-time decision. "I've been wanting to play but obviously if you can't move then you can't play."

Portland held the Hawks to a season-low 33.0 percent shooting in this season's first matchup, easily winning 102-78 on March 5 behind 14 points and a career high-tying 18 rebounds from Nicolas Batum. Aldridge finished with 10 points while shooting a season-worst 1 of 13.

The Blazers haven't swept Atlanta since taking both meetings in 2007-08.

The Hawks (31-39) had dropped 14 of 15 before putting together a season-best five-game winning streak, but their struggles have resumed over the last week. Atlanta is coming off its fourth straight defeat, 107-83 at Minnesota on Wednesday.

Mike Scott had a team-high 15 points as the Hawks were outscored 42-28 in the paint and 26-13 in transition. Atlanta is clinging to the East's final playoff spot.

"We're a close team," Scott said. "We've been through a slump before. It's not good at all. But we know how to do good things, we're professionals and we're going to stick together."

Hawks forward Kyle Korver hasn't played during the skid due to back spasms, leaving his status for Thursday in doubt. Korver scored five points while shooting 1 of 9 - including 0 for 5 from long distance - against the Blazers earlier this month as his NBA record of 127 consecutive games with a made 3-pointer was snapped.
