"It's hurting pretty bad, can't really walk on it." -- LaMarcus Aldridge on his left ankle sprainFor now, Aldridge is considered "questionable" for Thursday's game against the Denver Nuggets. It will depend on how he is feeling come game day and how his ankle is holding up. For this season, Aldridge is averaging 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game. However, he is playing for a career-high 38.1 minutes per game while shooting at a career-low of 46.5% from the field.
