Aldridge has a torn ligament in his left thumb. Now a right thumb sprain is keeping him out tonight.

Erik Gundersen

Ahem. That's the left one. Now on his right thumb. The Portland Thumbs

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge (right thumb sprain) will not play tonight vs. Memphis. He was just warming up, too.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers announce that LaMarcus Aldridge (right thumb sprain) will NOT play vs. the Grizzlies tonight.

Erik Gundersen

LaMarcus Aldridge is OUT tonight with a right thumb sprain.

No. Talent shortage RT @pweaverm: @Kerry Eggers @waynetinkle @OregonStateMBB why are you writing them off? Because they lose a game?

Kerry Eggers

In last 3 games with Denver, Arron Affalo averaged 6.0 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.3 minutes: 8-24 from field, 0-9 from 3

You’d take Winston over Mariota on that basis? RT @rystar7: @Kerry Eggers except he has never ran an offense like he will have to in the NFL.

Such a big win for Oregon over Utah. Ducks played with terrific intensity.

If scouts need NFL Combine results to pick Marcus Mariota over Jameis Winston, they’re dumber than they look #nobrainer

Blazers face the Durant-less Thunder on Friday, Feb. 27. Portland is 2-0 vs. OKC and 6.5 games up in the Northwest Division.

Erik Gundersen

Per LRT, looks like Kevin Durant's won't play vs. Portland on Friday.

Dorell Wright

Thx RT @HuskyBlazerFan: @Kerry Eggers Great Article. I always loved how he would challenge centers at the jumpball at the start of games.

The #Blazers' 16-point loss to the Jazz is their most lopsided loss of the season, eclipsing 15-point loss to Houston in Dec.

Joe Freeman

It's a wrap: Jazz beat #Blazers 92-76. Lowest-scoring game of season for Portland. Next up: Grizzlies Sunday at the Moda Center.

Mike Richman

Before this white flag last 2:20 -- Blazers bench had 9 points on 4-for-17 shooting. 0 second half field goals.

Joe Freeman

With 2:36, Stotts waves the white flag, inserts Crabbe, Blake, Leonard, CJ and Dorell to finish game.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers flirting with their lowest-scoring output this season. With 3:30 left, they have 69 points. Lowest came at Minny (82) in Dec.

Joe Freeman

LA has been block three times tonight. Gobert, who has 2 of them, has 5 blocks in the game.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers are 24-63 from the field, 4-20 from deep. Since the 1st Q, they're 15-47 from the field, 2-16 from deep. #ouch

Joe Freeman

Batum ends a 15-0 Jazz run with a rebound layup with 8:24 left. Jazz lead by 19.

Erik Gundersen

On preps duty tonight for Camas-Battle Ground boys. Will watch tonight's game and write about it after.

Joe Freeman

The Jazz open the 4th Q with a 10-0 run to take a 75-59 lead over #Blazers. Stotts calls a timeout to stop bleeding with 9:43 left.

Mike Richman

That kinda game for Portland. Joe Ingles gets caught in the air and basically just drops the ball...Derrick Favors picks it up and scores.

Joe Freeman

End of 3rd: Jazz lead #Blazers 65-59. LA has 13pts, 8rbs, Matthews has 11pts, 7rbs, Port scored 35pts combined in 2nd/3rd Q's.

Mike Richman

Jazz up 65-59 after 3. Blazers look like a team trying to find a rhythm after nine days off.

Mike Tokito

One little odd thing about post-All-Star: Memphis' first game back is Sunday in Portland. Griz got an 11-day All-Star break.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers can't be blowing this. If they come back & win, then beat Memphis Sunday, they would be 1½ games behind Griz for 2nd place in West

Joe Freeman

The #Blazers have scored just 29 points in the 2nd/3rd Q's combined with 2:37 left in the 3rd. Jazz lead 61-53.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers bench being outscored 20-8. They need to make a trade to bolster the second unit.

Joe Freeman

Uh-oh. Batum and Booker collide in the open court ... and Batum grimaces as he gets up.

Joe Freeman

Sloppy? Boring? Bad? "Words one might use to describe this game, Alex." Correct.

Mike Richman

Aldridge had missed 8 straight before knocking down that jumper. Blazers up 1.

Mike Richman

Blazers closed the half on 9-2 run to take a 43-39 halftime lead. They started the 2nd quarter 5-for-17 and 0-4 from deep.

Joe Freeman

Halftime: #Blazers lead Jazz 43-39. Dame has 10pts, 3rbs, LA has 8pts, 6rbs, Matthews has 7pts, 5rbs. Favors/Burke have 10pts for Utah.

Mike Richman

Narrowly avoids viral GIF RT @CHold: Wes got to give thanks tonight for Ingles not making that jumper.
