Aldridge (shoulder) notched 24 points (10-23 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four blocks, three steals, two rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Mavericks. Aldridge returned from a six-game absence and looked impressive, filling out the stat sheet and posting 20-plus points for the third time in his last five outings dating back to last month. The veteran power forward looked healthy, and he should return to be one of San Antonio's most reliable scoring threats now that he's available again.
Aldridge (shoulder) will play and start Tuesday against the Mavericks, Evan Closky of KENS 5 reports. As expected, Aldridge will make his return Tuesday from a shoulder strain that cost him six consecutive games. He'll re-join the starting five, and it's possible fewer minutes will be given to Trey Lyles.
Aldridge (shoulder) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Mavs, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. This comes as a surprise, as the Spurs indicated as recently as Monday night that Aldridge would likely miss another game. His sprained right shoulder is apparently feeling better, however, so as of Tuesday afternoon, the expectation is that he'll return after missing the previous six contests.
Aldridge (shoulder) is expected to sit out Tuesday's game against Dallas, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. The Spurs initially hoped Aldridge would only miss a few games, but assuming he sits Tuesday, it will be his seventh consecutive absence. Expect Drew Eubanks and Trey Lyles to continue handling most of the center minutes.
Aldridge (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's game against Cleveland, Matthew R. Tynan of The Athletic reports. Aldridge wasn't included in the Spurs' travel plans for this weekend, effectively ruling him out Sunday. The veteran center's streak of missed games will reach six with his next opportunity to return coming Tuesday against the Mavericks.
