Injury Update: LaMarcus Aldridge, Mo Williams will play vs. Phoenix

LaMarcus Aldridge (quad) and Mo Williams (ankle) will both play tonight against the Phoenix Suns, albeit in “probably limited minutes,” according to head coach Terry Stotts. Neither played in Fan Fest or in the preseason opener against the Clippers.

Dorell Wright (dislocated right middle finger), Earl Watson (left calf) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) all will not play for the Trail Blazers tonight.

Joel Freeland is “probably a game time decision” as Stotts said he “tweaked his back at the end of the game, last game.”
