Scoot Henderson returned to the starting lineup for the Portland Trail Blazers after a hiatus of over a month, and according to head coach Chauncey Billups, this is a trend expected to persist throughout the remainder of the season.

Billups noted that Henderson’s progress during his rookie season has been significant enough to merit the starting point guard position for the Blazers. Before Thursday’s game, Henderson had already started in 15 out of the 42 games he had played.
