#Blazers practice report: Bulls will 'try to wear you out on both ends,' Aldridge is over draft day trade & more bit.ly/1yvE13J

Kamenetzky Brothers

Yes, because Aldridge is hurting for a great point guard. AK AlRT @addzeeferrari: small market vs LA? Say pair him with Rondo?

Kamenetzky Brothers

Among many reasons I don’t see LaMarcus Aldridge coming to the Lakers? He’s not big on spotlight and media. POR market a good fit. AK

Emiliano Carchia

Is he from our Earth? Anthony Davis blocks Aldridge and Matthews in two seconds sportando.com/en/usa/nba/141… http://t.co/nS3VjPeSsu

Michael Pointer

Chris Holtmann said #Butler trainers hoping Jackson Aldridge return for Saturday's game against Loyola (Md.) No guarantees, however.

Chris Herring

LaMarcus Aldridge, Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant have each taken more midrange jumpers than the Rockets have as a team this season.

Erik Gundersen

FINAL: 102-93 Blazers. Lillard with 24, 7 ast, 4 rebounds. Aldridge with 22 and 9. Davis had 25 after 3. Finishes w/ 31, 11 rebs, 3 blocks.

Sean Highkin

LaMarcus Aldridge secures the Chalupas with Luke Babbitt sitting on the Pelicans' bench.

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca needs to get back in game, Ryan Anderson having problems against Aldridge defensively

Erik Gundersen

20 and 6 for Aldridge now. One-point Pels lead.

Kevin Pelton

The Pelicans have defensive problems any time Ryan Anderson ends up on LaMarcus Aldridge with the Brow on Robin Lopez.

Mike Richman

Five point game? LaMarcus hitting mid-range jumpers? What is this?

Erik Gundersen

Stotts isn't messing around. Aldridge-Matthews-Lopez checking in…and then so does The Brow. 83-73 Pels with 9:13 left.

Kerry Eggers

25 pts on 12-15 shooting, 7 boards, 3 stls, 3 blcks RT @mikea775: @Kerry Eggers Davis is already on completely different level then Aldridge

Kerry Eggers

' @Damian Lillard has had a couple of beautiful passes off the pick-and-roll tonight, the latest one to @LaMarcus Aldridge

Erik Gundersen

Half: Pelicans 49, Blazers 42. Lillard leads the Blazers with 10. Anthony Davis has 11, 6 rebs, 3 blocks. Aldridge w/ 6 on 3-for-8, 2 rebs.

Erik Gundersen

Also, FWIW, that was not the first time he's done that. Did it it multiple times last year against Aldridge. Nobody guards LA like AD.

Andrew Sharp

Anthony Davis is like a drunk fantasy that people used to have for Lamarcus Aldridge

Paul Flannery

No one blocks LaMarcus Aldridge fadeaways. (Every statement of fact will now include an Anthony Davis disclaimer).

Jim Eichenhofer

Stop it Anthony Davis. He just blocked a LaMarcus Aldridge 19-footer that no one blocks, then gets Wes Matthews seconds later on 2nd jumper

Kevin Pelton

I can't conceive of anyone else in the league blocking LaMarcus Aldridge's fadeaway like Anthony Davis just did.

Erik Gundersen

Anthony Davis just blocked an Aldridge fadeaway then blocked a Matthews shot and it led to two FTs. What a terror.

Mike Richman

Pelicans doubling (from the baseline) off the weak side corner when Aldridge catches. Someone is going to be open in that spot all night.

Dwight Jaynes

As soon as Aldridge got up so did Davis. Both in now

Erik Gundersen

Seems like LaMarcus is really forcing the issue in the early going. Shots and passes. Looks like he's trying to get his rhythm back.

Mike Richman

Allen Crabbe getting his fourth straight start alongside Lillard, Matthews, Aldridge and Lopez.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans starters: PG Holiday, SG Gordon, SF Evans, PF Davis, C Ajinca, Portland: PG Lillard, SG Matthews, SF Crabbe, PF Aldridge, C Lopez.

Jonathan Feigen

That's preseason question that remains. What happens when Rockets face Z-Bo, Aldridge, Griffin, Davis, Nowitzki or Duncan in playoff series?

Lenn Robbins

Losing at P-land, when the Blazers didn't have Aldridge, Batun , not awful, losing at home to Heat w-out Wade and Deng unacceptable #Nets

Jim Eichenhofer

Omer Asik (lower back pain) won't play; Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge expected to play. More: on.nba.com/1xyzfFv http://t.co/NQQLC1oxZf

Mike Richman

Terry Stotts confirms that Aldridge will play tonight but Batum is still out vs. New Orleans. Victor Claver moves back to inactive list

Nakia Hogan

Portland will be without SF Nikolas Batum (knee) but will have PF LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) tonight.

Erik Gundersen

Aldridge in, Batum out for Blazers tonight per Stotts.

Joe Freeman

LaMarcus Aldridge (upper respiratory illness) will play and Nicolas Batum (right knee contusion) will not play vs. NO.

Stefan Bondy

Nets should win tonight at home against a Miami team without Wade. But I also thought they should beat Portland without Aldridge and Batum.

Jim Eichenhofer

Omer Asik (questionable, lower back pain) hopes to play. LaMarcus Aldridge also questionable: on.nba.com/1xfw97P http://t.co/2leyduwKbR

Mike Tokito

It's the first POW honor for Lillard. Teammate LaMarcus Aldridge has won it 6 times, including 3 last season

Joe Freeman

For those asking about status of Aldridge/Batum vs. NO. Won't know for sure until about 5:15. Now, LA is questionable, Batum is doubtful.

Tim Bontemps

No Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge just made Saturday's loss to Portland a more painful one: nypost.com/2014/11/16/net…

Mike Richman

#Blazers make it official Nicolas Batum (right knee) is doubtful and LaMarcus Aldridge (respiratory illness) is questionable vs. New Orleans

Erik Gundersen

Blazers officially make Batum (right knee contusion) doubtful for tomorrow and say Aldridge (illness) is questionable for Monday vs. Pels.

Mike Richman

Practice Report: LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum questionable to return for #Blazers Monday vs. New Orleans bit.ly/1sZDSRs

Mike Richman

Did Meyers Leonard get Aldridge sick on purpose? LA: "He probably did so he can start, I get it now. No new friends, man, no new friends"

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge (respiratory illness) said he "felt like death" three days ago but is feeling better now. Still questionable for tomorrow

Erik Gundersen

LaMarcus Aldridge said he's unsure whether he will go tomorrow. About his illness he said, "I felt like death."

Erik Gundersen

Blazers practice: Nicolas Batum attempting to kick a ball with that right knee that's kept him out. LaMarcus taking jumpers with PFs.

Mike Richman

Not sure how much, but both Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge are going through some of today's practice.

Dwight Jaynes

No Aldridge, Batum vs. Nets? No problem for Blazers! csnnw.com/blazers/no-ald…

Tim Bontemps

The Nets seemed to catch a break with no LaMarcus Aldridge or Nicolas Batum, but instead just suffered a painful loss nyp.st/11aqlQG

Tim Bontemps

Instead of taking advantage of LaMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum's absences, the Nets suffered a painful loss: nyp.st/11aqlQG
