Injuries have opened up another opportunity for Luke Babbitt in Portland.
The Blazers have recalled the former Wolf Pack star from the NBA D-League.
Babbitt will be active for Saturday night's game against the Warriors.
The Galena graduate averaged 18 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 41 percent in four games with the Idaho Stampede.
The Blazers intended to send Babbitt to the D-League for six games, but injuries have led them to call on his services earlier than expected.
