LaMarcus Aldridge Injury: Trail Blazers All-Star Forward Doubtful Thursday Against Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers will do battle on Thursday in a nationally televised game from the Rose Garden, but the home team may be without their All-Star power forward. LaMarcus Aldridge sprained his left ankle on Tuesday night in Portland's home loss to the Washington Wizards, stepping on the foot of Trevor Booker while coming down from a jump shot.

Aldridge did not make the trip with Portland to Golden State on Wednesday night to face the Warriors, and head coach Nate McMillan said on Wednesday that Aldridge is "doubtful" for Thursday night's game against the Clippers, and merely "hopeful" for Saturday's game against Atlanta.

Thursday will be the third game in as many nights for Portland, which would seemingly give the Clippers an inherent advantage, though they will be playing on the second night of a back-to-back set as well. If Portland is without Aldridge, who is averaging 22.6 points and 8.3 rebounds per game this season, that swings the scale even more in the Clippers' favor.

Thursday is the third of four meetings between the Clippers and Trail Blazers, with each team winning at home once so far this season.

Chauncey Billups Injury: Clippers Guard Undergoes Successful Surgery To Repair Torn Left Achilles

Los Angeles Clippers guard Chauncey Billups underwent successful surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon on Wednesday, the team announced on Wednesday. The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Clanton at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado.

Billups, who injured the ankle on Monday, February 6 in the fourth quarter in the Clippers' 107-102 overtime win in Orlando, is expected to remain in Colorado for roughly four weeks before returning to Los Angeles to begin rehabilitation. He is out for the remainder of the season.

In 20 starts for the Clippers this season, Billups averaged 14.9 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.5 rebounds per game, playing 30.4 minutes per contest. Billups, 35, will be a free agent after the season.

Since stepping into the starting lineup at shooting guard for Billups on February 8, Randy Foye has averaged 10.0 points per game, though Foye had just three points on 0-for-7 shooting in Monday's loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
