    UPDATE as of 4pm on 1-25-11:

     LaMarcus Aldridge MRI is negative for tear or cartilage damage.  He does have a hip contusion and is listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. Boston.
    courtesy of OregonLive.com

    Jason Quick of the Oregonian reported late last night after the home loss to the Sacramento Kings that Blazers PF and 2011 All-Star candidate LaMarcus Aldridge had X-Rays for a sore right hip following the game.

     

    Aldridge had surgery on his left hip in 2005 as a freshman at Texas to repair torn cartilage suffered during a January 15 game against Nebraska.

    Cho said it is unlikely the team will find out the results until Tuesday morning. 

    In Quick's article, he quoted LA as saying "it's nothing", referring to the sore hip.  That is good enough for me, as I'm sure we can all agree, this team has endured enough already.  However, that said, even in a best case scenario with X-Rays coming back negative, this story serves as a not-so-gentle reminder that the Blazers can ill afford to lose their starting PF for any amount of time.  The Chris Johnson signing, adding depth to Portland's frontcourt, should help with the load Aldridge has been having to carry...even if only for a few minutes a game.

    LaMarcus is being over-played!
    His minutes should be reduced.

    Hope it is just a sore hip- nothing major we can not afford to loose LA

    Ok, so we all had a scare that LA was going to be out for awhile, and I hope all the players were freaking out as well.  Now that he is ok, lets go out there on thursday and kick some ass!  Daniette

    but is there a reason to why he had an MRI?
    i dont know what happened, did he fall during a game?
    Or has this been on his schedule, can anyone fill me in?

    As stated in the post, it was just sore. He's been playing alot of minutes and his body just isn't quite used to it. I think taking a couple of minutes off of his playing time each game with help to losen his body up a bit. But no. No fall or anything significant to make him have to have a MRI.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
