There was a rather scary incident on Thursday night in the game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Portland Trail Blazers, and it involves LaMarcus Aldridge having to be helped to the back.
Early on in the third quarter, Aldridge was going into the lane against the San Antonio defense for a floater, when he came crashing down hard, straight down on his back.
Aldridge was taken to the locker room and will not return to the game.
He was down on the court for a while, and has dealt with some back injuries in the past, which makes this incident all that much more scary. Let’s all hope that Aldridge can make a speedy recovery.
