The Blazers are hosting the Houston Rockets at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Moda Center, which means James Harden is in town and expected to play after being quarantined for violating the NBA’s COVID-19 protocols. p>

The Athletic reported Friday that Harden added the blazers to its short list of desired trade destinations, which includes Miami, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and Boston

After a deal, could Harden stay in Portland all weekend and take the Blazers to Los Angeles to play the Lakers on Monday? In theory this could happen, but it doesn’t seem likely

Blazer: Forward Nassir Little (Health and Safety Protocols) is out Striker Zach Collins (ankle) is out He could return in late January

Missiles: Chris Clemons (right Achilles; operation), DeMarcus Cousins ​​(health and safety protocols), Eric Gordon (health and safety protocols), Mason Jones (health and safety protocols), Kenyon Martin Jr (Not with team self-isolating), Ben McLemore (not with team self-isolating), and John Wall (health and safety protocols) and out

After the game on Saturday, the Blazers will start a road trip with four games on Monday at the Los Angeles Lakers (1-1) The trip continues on Wednesday at the Los Angeles Clippers (2-0), followed by two games at the Golden State (0-2) on New Years Day and January 3
