The Portland Trail Blazers have released their latest injury updates in advance of tonight's matchup with the Utah Jazz. LaMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum have been upgraded from doubtful to questionable. Chris Kaman will not play.

The Blazers fared well in the first half against the Golden State Warriors last night starting Dorell Wright and Alonzo Gee in place of Aldridge and Batum, but eventually got overwhelmed. Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard saw heavier-than-usual action in Kaman's stead. The quartet provided 22 points and 17 rebounds and 4 assists against a total of 42 points, 23 rebounds, and 8 assists averaged by Aldridge, Batum, and Kaman.
