The Trail Blazers on Monday returned from a five-day All-Star break with renewed enthusiasm, purpose and resolve.

They also returned to the same ominous reality they faced before the break: A five-game losing streak, a challenging 29-game season-ending schedule and the questionable status of starting shooting guard Wesley Matthews.

The Blazers went through a roughly 90-minute workout Monday night at the practice facility in Tualatin, but they did so without Matthews, who instead opted for treatment on his balky left elbow and left leg.

Matthews is listed as a game-time decision for the Blazers’ Tuesday night meeting with the Phoenix Suns at the Rose Garden and his immediate — and long-term status — could determine how long the Blazers’ fleeting playoff hopes remain alive.

“I’m doing everything — I’ve done everything — to possibly put myself in position to play,” Matthews said. “I feel optimistic about it.”
