According to NBA insider Chris Haynes, All-Star guard Damian Lillard (right calf strain) is reportedly set to come back and play as soon as Dec. 4 against the Indiana Pacers.

Haynes reported on Lillard’s injury timetable while Portland took on the Los Angeles Clippers on national TV. The Trail Blazers lost that game, 118-112, dropping their record to 11-10, good for seventh in the Western Conference. Lillard has been missing in action since he aggravated his troublesome calf on Nov. 19.

Dame Time first injured his calf on Oct. 27 while warming up to play against the Miami Heat. The muscle tightened up so much that it forced the six-time All-Star to leave the game for good in the third quarter.

Lillard is averaging 26.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 7.0 assists per game on 42.2 percent shooting from the field and 33.3 percent from beyond the arc. When he returns, the Weber State product will look to make up for lost time by helping Portland advance up the standings going into December.
