Damian Lillard said he wants to be there when his pregnant girlfriend is in labor. Their son was due March 19. The Blazers leave for a 3-game road trip tonight, facing the Thunder, Pelicans, and Grizzlies.
With his girlfriend experiencing small contractions, Lillard said he will line up private jets to be on standby in Oklahoma, New Orleans, and Memphis so he can take off immediately if his girlfriend goes into labor.
