On Wednesday night in the game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Portland Trail Blazers, there was a rather scary moment when Blazers’ LaMarcus Aldridge took a nasty fall to the hardwood, was taken to the back and did not return to the game.
Aldridge was going in for what should have been an easy floater, and the play ended up ending his night. Immediately following being taken to the locker room, Aldridge had an x-ray on the injury, and thankfully, everything came back negative.
Team reports that x-rays on @aldridge_12‘s back are negative

He has already missed five games this season while dealing with a groin injury, and there’s no word yet on how much time this injury is going to take away from he and the team as they fight to get the season back on track.
The Blazers have cooled down significantly in the second half of the season here, and will need a healthy Aldridge to put it all back together.
