Doubtful Rest Open link
Coach Terry Stotts said "we'll see" with regards to the statuses of Aldridge and teammate Mo Williams for the Blazers' season finale on Wednesday vs. the Clippers, but both will probably sit this one out and take the time off to rest up for the playoffs. Dorell Wright, Thomas Robinson and Joel Freeland will all see extended run at power forward in the likely event that Aldridge sits, with Earl Watson and Will Barton picking up Williams' minutes as part of the Blazers' backcourt.

Active Rest (back-to-back) Open link
Aldridge was a bit sore after returning to the Blazers' active roster on Thursday, but that is to be expected and he will be active on Friday vs. the Bulls. Aldridge returned to the lineup in spectacular fashion on Thursday, scoring 25 points and grabbing 16 boards in 32 minutes in the 100-85 win over the Hawks.
3/27/2014 10:45 AM
Active Lower back contusion Open link
Aldridge said he will return to the lineup and play on Thursday vs. the Hawks after missing the past seven games with a lower back contusion. He said he still feels some pain in the back when he runs, but he said it’s just time he plays. "I want to come back because I’ve been out so long," Aldridge said. “I didn’t think it was going to take this long, but backs are a sensitive area to injure. It’s taken longer, and we’ve exhausted every treatment and every option to rehab, so try it out.” Aldridge said he's not sure how many minutes he'll be able to play, and that he'll just go out there and see how it goes. His return will bump Dorell Wright back to the bench in a far more limited reserve role, and marginalize Thomas Robinson's value even further.
3/27/2014 2:01 AM
Questionable Lower back contusion Open link
Aldridge has been upgraded to questionable for Thursday's contest vs. the Hawks and will be a game-time decision. He had said on Tuesday that he'll go through a "contact" workout on Wednesday and if all goes well, he plans to make his return to the lineup Thursday. Aldridge wanted to play on Tuesday, but ended up sitting out because he still had discomfort running. "Trying to stride out and run hasn't felt normal," he said. "The last couple days have been better, so that's been positive." Aldridge has missed the past seven games due to a lower back contusion, and has been ramping up his activity, going through his usual pre-game shooting routine before Tuesday's loss. His return would bump Dorell Wright back to the bench in a far more limited reserve role, and marginalize Thomas Robinson's value even further.

Aldridge said he's going to go through a "contact" workout on Wednesday and if all goes well, he plans to make his return to the lineup on Thursday vs. the Hawks. He said he wanted to play on Tuesday, but didn't because he still has discomfort running at the moment. "Trying to stride out and run hasn't felt normal," he said. "The last couple days have been better, so that's been positive." Aldridge has missed the past seven games due to a lower back contusion, and has been ramping up his activity, going through his usual pre-game shooting routine before Tuesday's loss.

Injured Lower back contusion Open link
Aldridge has been ruled out in advance of Monday's game vs. the Heat, and won't return before he can practice with the team, meaning he's all but certain to be out on Tuesday, as well. Aldridge went through an extended shooting session on Saturday, which is a positive sign that he's made some improvement, and he has a bit of a buffer with the Blazers headed for a five-game week, so he could still be available for three games if he does return to practice on Wednesday and has no issues. Dorell Wright will continue to start at power forward in his place, with Thomas Robinson seeing extended run off the bench. Neither offers much fantasy appeal given their categorical limitations.

Injured Lower back contusion Open link
The Thursday update on Aldridge is that he will travel with the Blazers on their five-game road trip, but there is "no update" on his playing status. He's yet to resume practicing (he just started walking without crutches on Sunday) and his short-term status remains muddled at best. He's got a bit of a buffer with the Blazers headed for a five-game Week 22, so he could still be available for three games if he were to miss even the Monday/Tuesday back-to-back. Dorell Wright will continue to start at power forward in his place, with Thomas Robinson seeing extended run off the bench. Neither offers much fantasy appeal given their categorical limitations.
3/13/2014 1:31 PM
Doubtful Lower back contusion Open link
An MRI confirmed that Aldridge has a lower back contusion, and he's expected to miss the next two games then will be re-evaluated next week. He collided awkwardly with Aron Baynes on a drive to the basket in the third quarter of Wednesday's game and fell hard on his back. He stayed on the ground for a while before being helped off the court by Meyers Leonard and Victor Claver, and looked to be in quite a bit of pain. He did not return. The Blazers will look to Thomas Robinson and Dorell Wright to fill in at power forward for at least the next two games, though neither has much fantasy appeal given their categorical limitations.
3/1/2014 7:17 PM
Active Left groin strain Open link
Aldridge will play and start on Saturday vs. the Nuggets. He has missed the past five games due to a left groin strain. Coach Terry Stotts said Aldridge does not have a specific minutes limit, but he also does not expect to use him for his normal minutes. The Blazers have been extremely limited in the frontcourt with Aldridge, Joel Freeland (knee), and Meyers Leonard (ankle) all sidelined, but they will get both Aldridge and Leonard back on Saturday.
2/11/2014 8:27 PM
Active Soreness Open link
Aldridge confirmed that he will play and start on Tuesday as the Blazers take on the Thunder. He has been dealing with soreness since Saturday's win, when he sat out during a stretch of the game because of it.
