for the second-consecutive season. Aldridge, who is averaging 20.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals a game, joins Tim Duncan, James Harden, David Lee, Tony Parker, Zach Randolph and Russell Westbrook as Western Conference reserves.
With the selection, Aldridge becomes the tenth Trail Blazer to be selected to play in the midseason exhibition at least twice.
