Trail Blazers big man LaMarcus Aldridge had X-rays taken of his wrist just before Tuesday night’s game. He played with the sore wrist, hitting 5-of-14 shots and contributing 19 points.
He reportedly did not take any shots during warm-ups and became “scared” for his wrist. The X-rays came back negative, but the soreness is persisting and affected his shooting on Tuesday night. It’s a good sign that he managed to play after injuring it in Monday’s game, but there’s a chance the Trail Blazers will run more tests on the wrist in the next few days.
Aldridge is the team’s leading scorer and is officially listed as day-to-day for the time being.
