Portland Trail Blazers forward Trevor Ariza is opting out of participation in the NBA’s Orlando restart of the season, committing instead to a one-month visitation window with his young son, sources tell ESPN.
Ariza, a starter, has been involved in a custody case over his 12-year-old son, and the mother’s decision to grant a court-ordered one-month visitation period during the league’s quarantine of teams in Orlando led Ariza to choose his parenting responsibilities over competing with the Blazers in the 22-team restart, sources said.
