Trail Blazers PF LaMarcus Aldridge undergoes thumb surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) The Trail Blazers have announced that star forward LaMarcus Aldridge has undergone successful thumb surgery. He is expected to return to basketball activity in about two months.

Aldridge played through his issue in the postseason, but struggled with his shot. He hit just 24-of-78 from the field in the final four games of the first-round loss to Memphis.


Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge not ready to discuss free agency


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) After the Trail Blazers were eliminated from playoffs by the Grizzlies on Wednesday, forward LaMarcus Aldridge was not ready to discuss his plans for free agency, reports The Oregonian.

"I will cross that bridge later on," Aldridge said. "Right now, I want to be with my teammates and reflect on the good season we had."

Aldridge will become a free agent in the offseason unless he signs an extension with the Blazers. Numerous teams including the Knicks, Mavericks and Spurs are reportedly interested in signing Aldridge in the offseason.

"I've had a great nine years here that's always going have more weight than anything else," Aldridge said, per the team. 


Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge fine with not having surgery


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/29/2015) LaMarcus Aldridge has been dealing with a sprained thumb for most of the season, but the forward said he had no regrets about delaying surgery on the injury in order to play for the Trail Blazers, per ESPN.com. 

Aldridge, who is averaging 23.8 points and 11.8 rebounds in the Blazers' playoff series against the Grizzlies heading into Wednesday's Game 5, still doesn't feel as if he's at full strength. 

"If feeling great is 10, I'm about a 5, 6," Aldridge said. 


Report: Knicks to strongly pursue Aldridge in free agency


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Knicks will be going hard after Trail Blazers star forward LaMarcus Aldridge in free agency, according to NJ.com, which is speculating that he would give the team a much-needed scoring option along with Carmelo Anthony.

That duo, along with a possible draft pick such as University of Kentucky center Karl-Anthony Towns, would team up to create a potentially fine frontcourt.

The Knicks, however, must convince Aldridge to join what is now one of the worst teams in the NBA. ESPN is reporting that current title contenders San Antonio and Dallas will be chief contenders to land Aldridge.


Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge doubles up in Game 2 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge scored a team-high 24 points on 7 of 20 shooting while hauling in 14 rebounds Wednesday, but his team still fell 97-82 to the Grizzlies to fall behind 2-0 in the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Aldridge and the Blazers took a 21-19 lead into the second quarter before struggling, falling behind double digits before halftime, and the team was unable to climb out of the hole. The foward added four blocks, two steals and one assist in 42 minutes Wednesday.

The Blazers will be looking for their first win when the series heads to Portland Saturday.


Allen Crabbe could get start for Trail Blazers in Game 1


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Shooting guard Allen Crabbe could get the call to start the first game of the Trail Blazers' playoff series against Memphis, per Oregon Live.

Assuming Arron Afflalo remains out with a shoulder injury, coach Terry Stotts likes Crabbe's fit in the lineup better than C.J. McCollum, who started the last three games of the season. 

"I think Allen complements Damian (Lillard) and (LaMarcus Aldridge)," Stotts said, "as far as being defensive minded, not needing shots, not needing the ball."

"We need to be good at both ends of the court and it needs to mesh at both ends of the court," Stotts added. "And Allen brings a defensive mindset. And I think you've seen he's shooting the ball with confidence. It's not like he can't play offense. There are players in the league who come in and they're strictly defenders. But he was a scorer in college and he can help us at the offensive end. I think he plays off the ball a little bit more, whereas CJ plays with the ball. I think it's all about trying to maximize what each guy can bring."
