LaMarcus Aldridge to undergo further testing Monday

Aldridge began feeling symptoms again during Thursday’s loss at Oklahoma City, coach Gregg Popovich said. Though Aldridge’s latest incident is suspected to be related to those previous episodes, Spurs officials said it was too early to know for sure. Aldridge is expected to undergo further testing Monday. “Based on what they do and see, we’ll know better what we are really looking at,” coach Gregg Popovich said. “But we don’t know right now.”

LaMarcus Aldridge has been ruled out indefinitely after an occurrence of a minor heart arrhythmia, the team announced. The news stunned Aldridge’s teammates, who were already preparing to face the Warriors without leading scorer Kawhi Leonard, who is unavailable until he completes the NBA’s concussion protocol. “It’s a sensitive issue,” Ginobili said of Aldridge’s condition. “We want to make sure he is fine, so they are running some tests. The most important thing is to have him healthy. We will wait as long as necessary to make sure.”

Rick Carlisle on Pacers veterans: They were disappointed with how things have gone

What’s the message the veterans are giving you about the last two years? Rick Carlisle: They were disappointed with how things have gone. We’ve got to work at developing a style of play so we can maximize what we have here. Exactly what that means as far as number of wins or the playoffs, I don’t know. I’m reluctant to get into that kind of stuff, because sometimes you can set goals that are too low.
