Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge with sprained right ankle

With injured star forward Kawhi Leonard sitting on the bench, the Spurs suffered another blow Wednesday night, as LaMarcus Aldridge sprained his right ankle in the first quarter against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Aldridge landed awkwardly after defending Rajon Rondo’s driving layup with 7:17 remaining in the quarter. He tried to play through the pain before leaving the game at the 3:02 mark of the quarter with Spurs head athletic trainer Will Sevening to head to the locker room.

Aldridge re-entered the contest with 7:39 left in the first half before leaving to the locker room again with 3:17 remaining until intermission.

Depending on how bad the ankle sprain is, the injury could be awful news to a Spurs team that has already lost Kawhi Leonard to a lingering quad injury. Leonard, though, is expected to return from his injury in the coming weeks. It will be much tougher for San Antonio to work him into the rotation if Aldridge’s injury keeps him off the court for some time.

There is reason to believe this is only a minor ankle sprain. He played through the injury for a few possessions before exiting the game during a timeout.

Aldridge finished with eight points, snapping a 59-game streak of scoring in double figures.

The team did not immediately disclose how long Aldridge will be out.

To say the Spurs have had their share of injuries this season would be quite an understatement. In addition to Kawhi Leonard’s lengthy absence, Danny Green, Rudy Gay, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have each missed at least 12 games.
