LaMarcus Aldridge’s wrist injury something to watch

Against Indiana Monday night LaMarcus Aldridge fell, put his hands out to break the fall and tweaked his wrist.

It got worse over the next 24 hours. How much worse? Look what he told Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com before the game.

 

Aldridge played against the Hawks but was not himself, shooting 5-of-14 from the floor (although still getting 19 points) in a game Damian Lillard had to take over.

Aldridge said the wrist didn’t loosen up during the game, Haynes reports.

“Nah, it didn’t,” Aldridge said. “But I was so cautious with it that it didn’t get any worse. I think all my free throws tonight, I didn’t have a follow through because it still hurts. I was kind of shot-putting it tonight, but hopefully I can ice it tomorrow and I should be better by (Friday).”

The Blazers are off until Friday when they host the Rockets. Doesn’t sound like Aldridge will miss time, but it’s something to watch.
