    LMA Out for a Week

    Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge will be out for a week because of a left groin strain.

    The Blazers say their three-time All-Star will be reevaluated at the end of the week. He has been bothered by the injury since Portland's victory over the Timberwolves earlier this month.

    Aldridge is averaging 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds this season.

    I'd almost suggest taking the week off as a team rather than trying to scrape wins and risk fatiguing our other core guys.

    Leave some guys home for at least a few games and play CJ, Barton, Crabbe, Trob and Claver more. Maybe sign a 10 day center too.

    and there's several reasons why that would make sense. without Aldridge and a backup C we are massively undersized so our defense is going to be lacking. Our best bet is to do a face paced offense like Golden state when they played Stephen Jackson as a 4 or 5 sometimes. That can surprise any team and steal a few wins while LA is out. It also could make guys like Barton and T Rob look good which would be huge for us this coming offseason. So not only would it lessen the chance of overworking our core guys, it would also probably increase our chance of winning, and raise the stock of our bench guys for trades in the offseason. It could also even raise CJ and TRob's confidence so they can play better throughout the rest of the season.
