Portland’s Aldridge out indefinitely

Portland, OR (Sports Network) – Portland Trail Blazers center LaMarcus
Aldridge is out indefinitely after experiencing a rapid heartbeat and
dizziness.

Aldridge left during the second quarter of Saturday’s game against the LA
Clippers. He was taken to a local hospital and treated for dehydration.

In a statement on the team’s website, Portland general manager Kevin Pritchard
and head coach Nate McMillan said Aldridge would miss Wednesday’s game against
the Utah Jazz and it out indefinitely.

Aldridge is averaging nine points and five rebounds over 63 games in his
rookie season for the Trail Blazers.
