Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge did not participate in practice on Tuesday because he was sick. The Blazers play the Brooklyn Nets at the Rose Garden on Wednesday. Aldridge's status for that game is not yet known.
Candace Buckner of The Columbian reports on Twitter...
LaMarcus Aldridge did not practice today. "He wasn't feeling well. We sent him to the doctor, he was feeling a little weak." Terry Stotts
Stotts said the sickness and doctor's visit was not related to the migraine issues LMA's been working through.
For the 1st time since the March 8 game when he suffered the left ankle injury, Victor Claver practiced w/ Blazers.
Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports on Twitter...
Stotts says he'll see how LaMarcus feels tomorrow before announcing status for Wed game vs Nets.
Sasha Pavlovic (doubtful)
Victor Claver (questionable)
Claver said before the Blazers' recent five-game trip that he hoped to play on Wednesday night.
Aldridge has played in all but two Blazers games this season and he hasn't missed a game since Dec. 20. Portland is 1-1 without him with a December home win over the Denver Nuggets and a November loss to the Nets in Brooklyn.
Update (Wednesday): Mike Tokito of The Oregonian reports that Aldridge went through shootaround and is "probable" against the Nets.
All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, whose status was up in the air after he missed practice Tuesday with flu-like symptoms, was back with the team this morning.
"He went through shootaround, and he's probable," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said.
