PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge had surgery Monday to repair a ligament in his left thumb.
The team said in a statement that Aldridge is expected to be able to return to basketball activity in about eight weeks.
Aldridge, a four-time All-Star, averaged 23.4 points and 10.2 rebounds during the regular season, playing with the injured thumb for part of that time. He averaged 21.8 points and 11.2 rebounds in the playoffs.
