PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ The Portland Trail Blazers placed forward Dontonio Wingfield on the injured list Friday and activated guard-forward Vincent Askew to replace him.
Wingfield has tendinitis in his left hand, the team said. NBA rules require that he be out of action for five games. He’ll be eligible to rejoin the active roster Dec. 12 when the Seattle SuperSonics host the Blazers.
Askew had been placed on the injured list Nov. 19 with a sprained left ankle. He has appeared in six games with the Blazers, averaging 2.3 points and 8.5 minutes per outing with a .385 field goal percentage.
