http://www.nba.com/2009/news/12/30/blazers.aldridge.ap/index.html?ls=iref:nbahpt2PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Portland forward LaMarcus Aldridge has left the Trail Blazers' game against the Los Angeles Clippers with a left ankle sprain.
The Blazers say he is doubtful to return.
Aldridge left the court with 5:40 remaining in the first quarter. A short time later, guard Brandon Roy left the court during a timeout, presumably to check on Aldridge.
Aldridge was averaging 16.3 points and eight rebounds going into Wednesday night's game.
The Blazers have been beset by injuries this season. Centers Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla are out for the season, while forwards Nicolas Batum (shoulder), Travis Outlaw (left foot) and Rudy Fernandez (back) are all sitting with injuries.
This is just becoming crazy now. How many more injuries can this team endure? Wow.
