Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard Arron Afflalo suffered an arm injury during the Blazers' 116-105 loss to the Golden State Warriors last night. The latest update on Afflalo's condition has just come in:
MRI confirms Portland G Arron Afflalo has a right shoulder strain. He's expected to be sidelined for 1-2 weeks. #RipCity— Trail Blazers PR (@TrailBlazersPR) April 10, 2015
An absence of 1 week would keep Afflalo out of Portland's final 3 regular-season games. A 2-week absence would also cut out the first 2-3 games of the playoffs.
Afflalo has averaged 10.6 ppg in 30.1 minutes in his 25 appearances for the Trail Blazers. Though originally acquired as a bench player, Afflalo has started 19 of those 25 games due to Wesley Matthews' season-ending Achilles injury.
