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

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge did not play on Sunday against the Brooklyn Nets because of back spasms. In a CSNNW.com 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.
