Aldridge (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Mavericks, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Aldridge recently sat out two games with a sprained left ankle but he'll presumably take over his expected spot in the starting lineup immediately, which likely moves David West back to a limited role off the bench.
The Spurs continue to list Aldridge (ankle) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, but teammate Boris Diaw seemed to hint that the star big man could be available for the contest, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. When McDonald asked Diaw who would be tasked with covering the Mavs' Dirk Nowitzki for the game, Diaw said, "Probably LaMarcus," intimating that Aldridge would be available. That's far from an official declaration that Aldridge will play, however, and more clarity on that front likely won't arrive until the Spurs conduct pregame warmups 30 minutes ahead of the 8:30 ET tip. Because games will already be underway at that day, Aldridge remains a highly risky lineup choice for those playing in daily contests.
Aldridge (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. Aldridge missed the previous two games due to an ankle injury, so it remains to be seen if he will be available against San Antonio's inter-state rival, Dallas, on Wednesday. David West has started the previous two games at power forward in Aldridge's place, so he'll likely get the bump down should the 30-year-old find himself active Wednesday.
Aldridge (ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Suns, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports. Aldridge managed to take part in morning shootaround but apparently his left ankle sprain will require a second consecutive rest day after failing to take the court against Memphis on Saturday. David West is now on tap for the start with the next opportunity for Aldridge to return coming against the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Aldridge was present for the Spurs' morning shooatround, but the team continues to list him as questionable for Monday's tilt with the Suns, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Aldridge was able to practice some free throws during Monday's session, but none of his teammates were willing to offer up confirmation that the star power forward would suit up later in the evening. The injury, which Aldridge first suffered in Friday's game against the Pelicans, kept him out of Saturday night's win over the Grizzlies. The Spurs ended up handing David West the start at power forward for that game, and he'd likely stick in the lineup again Monday if Aldridge is ultimately ruled out.
