Blazers injured guard Steve Blake will miss Saturday's game with Utah because of his injured right shoulder. Blake shot the ball during practice on Friday, but afterward said he would not play against the Jazz and doesn't have a timetable for his return to the lineup.

"I'm not sure," said Blake. "I'll just have to evaluate each day."

Blake separated his shoulder two weeks ago at Philadelphia and returned briefly against the Clippers on Monday night in Los Angeles. However, he re-agrivated the injury.

"I don't see it as frustrating," Blake said after practice. "Of course, I'd rather be out playing, but I'm not going to let it get to me."

The Blazers are riding a three game winning streak and are 5-2 since Blake injured his shoulder against the sixers.
