According to Joe Freeman, head coach Terry Stotts would only say the injury is "nothing major," and Layman added, "[I hope to return] by next week."

The Blazers acquired the rights to Layman on draft night from the Orlando Magic for a reported $1.2 million and a 2019 second-round pick.

Layman averaged 11.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists last season at Maryland.
