Aldridge says his groin is just "a little sore" and that he should be fine to play opening night vs. Thunder— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) October 24, 2014
Missing one pre-season game, or even all of them, is not a big deal. Over the course of 7 pre-season games Portland's starting lineup will have played together approximately 120 minutes total, or 17 minutes per game. Does that worry you at all as far as continuity for the start of the season?
