Aldridge says he will play against Grizzlies
Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge said he will play tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Rose Garden.
Aldridge, who is recovering from a left ankle sprain, missed Portland’s last two games.
In addition, Blazers coach Nate McMillan said Tuesday the team is looking for a fill-in center to take the place of injured centers Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla, who are out for the season. But McMillan added that the team has not found any suitable replacements, and he prefers relying on forwards Jeff Pendergraph, Juwan Howard and Dante Cunningham at this point.
