LaMarcus Aldridge suffered a left hand injury during the Trail Blazers’ Monday night game against the Kings. He appeared to jam his thumb trying to strip DeMarcus Cousins as Cousins went for a layup.
The Blazers say he won’t return to the game.
LaMarcus Aldridge (left hand) will not return per Blazers.

The Blazers already lost one starter to a hand injury, with Robin Lopez missing the last 17 games. Hopefully Aldridge’s injury isn’t anything serious — he’s having another All-Star caliber season and the Blazers would have a hard time surviving without him for an extended period of time.
