Assessing LaMarcus Aldridge: How has the injured Blazer big adjusted his game?

LaMarcus Aldridge has a torn ligament in his left thumb and he's playing anyway - quite well, might I add. How is he doing it? When LaMarcus Aldridge announced on Saturday morning that he was forgoing the recommended surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, the typical reaction was one of sudden euphoria mixed with a late twinge of worry. The joy of seeing LMA back in the Portland lineup was one thing, but the long-term fears for the franchise player's health were another.What if Aldridge aggravates the injury? What if he survives playing hurt, but he's not effective? What if he...

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Kyrie Irving Outduels LaMarcus Aldridge

For the third time this week, the Blazers let a game go down to the wire and can't pull it out. Kyrie Irving steals the show putting up 55 points and the game winner. Heat check... Heat check... Heat check! Uh, heat check? But the heat could not be checked I'm a guy who would rather watch highlights of good closeouts and solid swing passes than lobs and blocked shots, appreciating the little things that teammates do for one another and why that makes basketball such a beautiful sport. So I'm reticent to reduce an entire competition between 20 players, 6+ coaches, and two organizations to...

My mind was trying to...

Should LaMarcus Aldridge Be Playing Through His Injury?

The Blazer's Edge Mailbag tackles the question that's on everybody's mind. It's time to answer the Mailbag question that's been on everybody's mind...a hot topic of debate in the comments and a source of worry and joy for Blazers fans. Dave, I'm sure you're already working on this, but I've seen almost nothing in-depth on the wisdom of Aldridge's decision to play through his injury. While I met the decision with unabashed joy and elation, at the same time it troubles me. In some respects this is a decision we'll only know the wisdom of in hindsight, but I'd love to hear your thoughts. ...
