Blazers’ LaMarcus Aldridge out at least two games, maybe more

Mar 13, 2014, 2:46 PM EDT

Considering how hard this fall was the Trail Blazers are lucky the injury wasn’t worse. At least nothing is broken.

However, LaMarcus Aldridge will be out at least two games, the team announced Thursday.

Those first two games are at New Orleans on Friday then hosting Golden State on Sunday.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $70,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Thursday night’s games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $8,500. Starts at 7pm ET on Thursday. Here’s the FanDuel link.

In addition, there is this:

Portland has lost four in a row and are 7-9 in their last 16, which has knocked them out of the top four in the West (no home court in the first round). Portland’s offense has slipped in the last month and being without Aldridge and Williams is not going to help matters at all.

    Get well, Lamarcus.

    They played suprisingly well without LMA…

    This could be a blessing in disguise, similar to what happened with CP3 going down and BG going HAM.

    Who will be the BG going HAM on the Blazers though?

      blessing in disguise would be if Aldridge got traded to his hometown Dallas

    That was a dirty play, though a smart one. The Spurs use a bench warmer colliding with other team’s focal player, they use it everytime and it works. Sometimes they hit physically and sometimes they play some mind game by using dirty tricks to piss you off, then you get a T, then another coming soon if you argue hard. In fact the Spurs don’t have anyone on the roster can defend Aldridge and that’s the only way to stop him, get him out of court.
