LaMarcus Aldridge Aggravates Back Injury
LaMarcus Aldridge ($8100) aggravated his existing back injury during Wednesday’s game against the Wizards. He managed to play through it and log 41 minutes, but may have done more damage than good in the 84-82 loss. The back issue already caused him to miss a game this past Sunday and the Blazers could rest him again if it acts up more. Back injuries are really tricky to deal with and are one of the biggest things that cause surprise scratches at gametime. Keep this in mind if you are thinking of using him in daily fantasy games, especially given his lofty $8100 salary.
If Aldridge does miss time, Meyers Leonard ($5000) will likly pick up a few starts at PF.
