Aldridge closed Tuesday's 118-105 win over the Rockets with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist over 17 minutes. Aldridge was cleared to play March 27 against the Hornets after missing the Nets' preceding nine games with a right hip impingement, but he registered four straight DNP-CDs following his removal from the injury report. The veteran's return to the rotation was lackluster at best as he was held scoreless across 17 minutes. Before the hip issue, Aldridge had scored in double figures in seven of his last nine appearances, but currently, it appears like Andre Drummond and Nicolas Claxton have a stronghold on the center position.
Aldridge (coach's decision) went unused in Sunday's 122-115 loss to the Hawks. Aldridge was cleared to play March 27 against the Hornets after missing the Nets' preceding nine games with a right hip impingement, but he still has yet to return to the Brooklyn lineup. With four straight games in which he didn't see the court in coach's decisions, Aldridge simply looks to be out of head coach Steve Nash's rotation at the moment. Andre Drummond and Nicolas Claxton look poised to finish the regular season as the Nets' primary centers.
Aldridge (hip) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Hornets. Aldridge is expected to return to action following a nine-game absence due to a hip injury. It's unclear how big of a role the veteran may have, but it's certainly encouraging to see him back in the mix.
Nets coach Steve Nash said Saturday that Aldridge (hip) is lined up to return to game action next week, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. Aldridge has missed each of Brooklyn's last eight contests, and he won't play in either game during the team's back-to-back set this weekend. However, indications are that he's improving and on track to return within the next week. He could realistically take the court as soon as Tuesday against Detroit.
Nets head coach Steve Nash said Sunday that Aldridge (hip) will be sidelined for at least another week as he continue his rehab, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. Aldridge underwent an MRI last week, and while initial scans on his hip don't reveal any structural damage, the veteran big man is still struggling to be cleared for game action. In his absence, Andre Drummond and Nicolas Claxton are expected to handle the majority of the minutes at center.
