The Portland Trail Blazers announced on Thursday that All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge underwent an MRI on his sore right hip. The results were negative and Aldridge is "probable" for Thursday night's game against the New Orleans Hornets.
Mike Tokito of The Oregonian reports that Aldridge was not at the team's Thursday morning shootaround. Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports that interim coach Kaleb Canales wasn't sure how or when Aldridge sustained the injury.
Point guard Raymond Felton is back with the team after missing Tuesday night's game to be with his mother during a heart procedure.
