Ruben Patterson still wants out of Portland, and Darius Miles doesn't know whether he'll play for the Trail Blazers again this season.
It was just another day at the bottom of the NBA for the troubled Blazers, who lost to the Warriors, 108-88, Friday night with their roster in disarray and more big questions looming about their future.
The Blazers' dismal season reached another low just one day after a 102-90 home loss to the Dallas Mavericks, both because of the result in Oakland -- Portland's 21st loss in 24 games under interim coach Kevin Pritchard -- and the ongoing controversies surrounding Miles and Patterson.
In a tirade after the Mavs game, Patterson declared himself out for the season with a shoulder injury and also requested a trade. But Patterson was back in the Blazers' starting lineup against the Warriors, playing 40 minutes and scoring 17 points in the loss.
"I was a little frustrated [Thursday] night with a lot of things," Patterson said.
"We get paid a lot of money, man. I'm just going to go ahead and finish it out, and whatever happens in the summer, happens."
Patterson essentially had to play: Portland had the NBA-minimum eight healthy players in uniform against Golden State.
