LaMarcus Aldridge is not playing tonight vs. the Clippers. He has a minor groin injury. Stotts said he expects LA to play opening night.

Mike Tokito

So NBA GMs say LaMarcus Aldridge is co-No. 1 PF, but ESPN's #nbarank has at No. 13, w/four PFs above.

Robin Lopez

Who's house are we egging first @Wesley Matthews @LaMarcus Aldridge http://t.co/FA8f5V4kKq

Erik Gundersen

Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge and LA's Blake Griffin are tied as the league's best power forward, NBA GM's say wp.me/p3CpBY-19I

Mike Tokito

#Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge is tied for best power forward in the NBA, GMs say oregonlive.com/blazers/index.…

Jason Quick

NBA GMs vote LaMarcus Aldridge as the game's best power forward (in a tie with Blake Griffin) nba.com/news/features/…

Joe Freeman

Aldridge takes a seat late in 3rd Q & that could be the end of his night. If so, he finishes w/ 18pts, 8 rbs in 28 mins. Made 7-15 shots.

Chris Dempsey

Ya, LaMarcus Aldridge looks good. to. go. 12 points on 5/7 shooting in 13 minutes

Chris Dempsey

Portland on fire out of the gate, 6 of 8 from the field, up 15-8 at 7:07 in the first. Aldridge with 6 and Lillard with 7

Chris Dempsey

Gonna be a good matchup Faried vs. Aldridge

Adi Joseph

I dreamt last night the Kings, Blazers and Marlins made a three-way trade involving Cousins, Aldridge and Stanton. Seemed fair at the time.

Mike Tokito

Lopez (13 pts, 7 rebs), Aldridge (10 points, 8 rebs, 5 asts) exit and should be done for night.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers have 22 assists. Aldridge has a team-high 5, Matthews 4.

Erik Gundersen

Half: Blazers 54, Haifa 35. RoLo has 9 points & 4 rebounds. Aldridge with 8 points, 4 boards. Lillard with 3 points, 2 ast in 1st game back.

Mike Tokito

Not that it's a huge concern, but Aldridge is 2 for 7 from field after shooting 4 for 13 in last game, vs. Clips.

Joe Freeman

Joel Freeland will be the next sub for the #Blazers, most likely entering for LaMarcus Aldridge. Kaman, Blake, Freeland 1st three subs.

Erik Gundersen

Positional revolution is real RT @Joe Freeman: I just watched Chris Kaman throw an outlet pass to a streaking LaMarcus Aldridge.

Joe Freeman

I just watched Chris Kaman throw an outlet pass to a streaking LaMarcus Aldridge.

Sam Amico

Seventeenth in my NBA 30 Teams in 30 Days preview @FOXSports: Lillard, Aldridge and fun Blazers should stay on rise. foxsports.com/ohio/story/por…

Mike Tokito

At one point, Aldridge saw Blake & said he looked like part of crowd, adding "You're not that tall." Short joke about 6-3 guy. Only in NBA.

Mike Tokito

Aldridge, Robinson, Blake are headed downtown for this #Blazers commercial shoot.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge isn't in favor of shortening the NBA season ... said an 82-game schedule is just right.

Mike Tokito

Accidentally spilled that LaMarcus Aldridge is in today's shoot. Woman wearing No 12 jersey was thrilled.

Mike Tokito

SiriusXM NBA Radio has preview of #Blazers today noon-3 pm. Interviews w/Olshey, Stotts, Aldridge, Kaman, Lillard, McCollum.

Mike Tokito

LaMarcus Aldridge joked that he's glad "Shaqtin a fool" isn't on yet, because his stepping in before inbounding ball would've been on it.

Erik Gundersen

Aldridge has been ice cold from the field but he's going to the line for his 5th and 6th FTA's of the quarter here in the 3rd.

Mike Tokito

Aldridge now 2 for 11 from field, but is 6 for 6 at line, has 10 points.

Mike Tokito

Blake Griffin now with five fouls. I believe Aldridge drew four of them.

Mike Tokito

Aldridge having a poor shooting night until that shot, but he does have three assists.

Mike Tokito

These upcoming FTs by Aldridge will be #Blazers' first attempts of game.

Erik Gundersen

Clippers take the lead at 40-39 back from the Blazers. Aldridge (1-5) not having quite as good of a night vs. LAC as he did on Thursday.

Mike Prada

Watching Clippers-Blazers. DeAndre Jordan doing a great job denying LaMarcus Aldridge so far.

Mary Stevens

Yesterday's top #NBA scorers were: Klay Thompson -25 pts vs. the Lakers LaMarcus Aldridge -22 pts vs. Utah Trey Burke -22 pts vs. Portland

Mike Tokito

Terry Stotts on Aldridge: "He had the rhythm tonight."

Sean Meagher

From @Mike Tokito: LaMarcus Aldridge shows All-Star form, but #Blazers drop another to Utah Jazz: Game Rewind bit.ly/1tIm7XA #ripcity

Erik Gundersen

Final: Jazz 109, Blazers 105. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 22 points. Wesley Matthews scored 13. Meyers Leonard with 9 points, all in the 4th.

Kerry Eggers

Presumably @LaMarcus Aldridge is done for the night with 22 points (10-14 shooting) and 6 boards in 24 minutes

Mike Tokito

Aldridge (22 pts, 6 rebs) and Batum (6 pts, 6 reb, 4 ast) get to 24 min finishing 3rd. Should be done for game as that was Stotts' target.

Erik Gundersen

Jazz get a bucket at the buzzer. Blazers up 81-78 after 3. Aldridge has 22 and 6. Safe to assume his night is over.

Tony Jones

Gobert just had a great sequence there. Blocked an Aldridge shot, finished with an alley-lop on the other end

Mike Tokito

Aldridge abusing Enes Kanter, 20 points, 9 for 12. Jazz not double-teaming, which would be silly in preseason.

Erik Gundersen

LaMarcus Aldridge is looking like LaMarcus Aldridge. 20 points with 5:44 in the 3rd quarter. Blazers up 1.

Tony Jones

Aldridge continues to have his way with the Jazz....He's up to 17 now. He hasn't yet played 17 minutes

Erik Gundersen

Half: Utah 56, Portland 54. Aldridge has 12 for Portland. Gordon Hayward has 14 points, 3 assists and 1 disrespectful dunk.

Tony Jones

LaMarcus Aldridge has 12 points and three rebounds in 12 minutes.

Tony Jones

Jazz up 45-39 as LaMarcus Aldridge has sat the entire second quarter

Mike Tokito

Rolo goes back in for Aldridge, Matthews in for Batum, so #Blazers are doing a rotation tonight.

David Locke

Jazz lead it 28-24 after 1 - Jazz 62% EFG - Blazers with 0 fast break points, Aldridge with 12 but Blazers just 1 for 5 from 3
