More on LaMarcus Aldridge Injury

The Spurs announced at halftime that Aldridge had an ankle sprain and would not return to action. The Spurs did not offer an update on Aldridge following Wednesday's 121-116 loss. Teammate Rudy Gay was optimistic Aldridge will be OK. "I think he'll be fine. I'm hoping he'll be fine," Gay said after the game. "We obviously need our big dog. He's a soldier. He'll play."
The Spurs have grown accustomed to living the rocky life of missing Kawhi Leonard for much of this injury plagued season.

Aldridge will not play in either of the Spurs' final two games leading into the break, tonight in Utah or Tuesday at Denver.
Tom Orsborn: Aldridge (sore right knee) is out for tomorrow night at Utah, per #Spurs. Murray (ankle), Parker (back) are questionable. Leonard, Gay remain out.
Kawhi Leonard (concussion protocol) is questionable for tomorrow night's Spurs-Hawks game. LaMarcus Aldridge, Dejounte Murray (left groin) and Tony Parker (back stiffness) remain out.
Spurs power forward LaMarcus Aldridge will not play against the Philadelphia 76ers because of a sore right knee. San Antonio is already without Pau Gasol, its starting center, who underwent surgery Jan. 20 to repair a broken left ring finger. Gasol broke his fourth metacarpal Jan. 19 while warming up before the Spurs' home game against Denver. The 7-footer was expected to miss four to six weeks due to the injury.
