Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge Discusses His Back Injury

Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge provides an update on his back injury.


Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge did not play on Sunday against the Brooklyn Nets because of back spasms. In a video interview, Aldridge said he is "probable" for Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons and offered a few specifics regarding his back.

What's wrong?

Muscle spasms in my back and kind of an alignment issue. I got the alignment fixed, I've been getting massages the last two days so I should be good tomorrow.

Happen on a specific play?

Nope, no play, no fall, no nothing. After the game I started to feel it and it got worse as the night went on.

How did it feel on Saturday?

Yesterday I couldn't walk. It was horrible. Today I'm actually walking normal and I feel a lot better today. It's like night and day.
