The Portland Trail Blazers have been dealing with a shortage of healthy point guards, but head coach Chauncey Billups provided some optimistic news.

According to Billups, Malcolm Brogdon is “really close” to making a comeback after sitting out the last five games due to a strained hamstring.

Additionally, rookie guard Scoot Henderson is nearing his return and could be back in action within the next week, as per Billups.

Henderson has been sidelined for the past eight games due to a sprained ankle, and his return was slightly delayed when a bone bruise was discovered.
