Nassir Little Details 'Super-Rigorous' Rehab and Return From Hip Fracture
Little is set to play after missing the Trail Blazers' last 21 games.
PORTLAND, Ore. — On Sunday night, the Trail Blazers are getting one key reinforcement back. Nassir Little, who has missed the last six weeks and 21 games after suffering a femoral head impaction fracture in his right hip, has been activated and is set to make his return.
Head coach Chauncey Billups said pregame that Little will be on a minutes restriction as he ramps up. He was cleared for contact earlier this week but has not gone through a full practice yet.
In the locker room before the game, Little and I discussed his rehab from the hip injury and his process for getting back on the court. That conversation is below.
