ATLANTA (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers are without leading scorers Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum for their game at Atlanta.

Lillard has plantar fasciitis in his left foot. McCollum has two sprained ankles. Lillard says he has been playing with a sore foot for a few weeks.

The injury ends Lillard’s streak of playing in 275 consecutive games – every game of his career.

There is no timetable for either guard to return.

Lillard leads Portland and is tied for seventh in the NBA with his average of 24.6 points per game. McCollum is averaging 20.1 points.

Tim Frazier and Allen Crabbe are expected to be the fill-in starters in Portland’s backcourt on Monday night.
