Portland Trail Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard recalled guard Steve Blake looking pale and ghost-like.

Blazers guard Brandon Roy said Blake appeared tired and worn down.

And Portland coach Nate McMillan stated that, while he knew Blake was sick, he nor anyone else on the team initially had any idea just how ill Blake really was.

But many Blazers thought for weeks that something was wrong with Portland’s back-up point guard. And the notion was confirmed Friday, when Blake was admitted to a local-area hospital with pneumonia. He is expected to miss at least a few days, and is out indefinitely.

Someone check on the record amount of games missed in a season and I believe it was 250 games. We should crush that record.

That doesn't take in account of losing our head coach to a rupture tendon while practicing because we didn't have enough body's for 5 on 5 in practice. Plus Lucas a assistant coach has a recurrence of bladder cancer and PA has cancer as well. It's like we are cursed.

But we keep on winning! That's what is incredible. In the last game against the Clippers we had basically our summer league team in at one point. 3 of the 5 anyway. Nate should get coach of the year if this keeps up.

If Aldridge doesn't play tonite, and he's questionable with a sprain ankle, here's our available players for tonites game.

Jerryd Bayless
Martell Webster
Brandon Roy
Juwan Howard
Jeff Pendergraph
Andre Miller
Dante Cunningham
Shavlik Randolph
