The Trail Blazers have announced that LaMarcus Aldridge will miss the remainder of the season and will undergo surgery on his right hip.
Via Trail Blazers:
Portland Trail Blazers forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right hip to repair a labral tear and will miss the remainder of the season, it was announced today by the team.
“In his most recent MRI, and following further evaluation, it’s been determined that LaMarcus has a slight labral tear and will require arthroscopic surgery,” said Acting General Manager Chad Buchanan. “LaMarcus’ priority is that he’s 100-percent healthy going into training camp this fall and we all feel this is the best course. He’s had an All-Star year and his long-term health is the most important thing to consider.”
Aldridge led the Blazers in points per game with 21.7 and averaged 8.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists. The Blazers are currently 11th (28-31) in the West and are trying to make a late run for the eighth playoff spot.
