The San Antonio Spurs are currently banged up, with a handful of players out due to injuries and they just received some painful news on the LaMarcus Aldridge front to add insult to it.
L.A. will not be playing in the foreseeable future after experiencing a minor heart arrhythmia.
The Spurs organization did not delve into further detail about the status of their big man but they care about Aldridge’s health and safety, which is why they are making this decision. They do not want to risk any complications and know that the stuff on the court is only secondary to what’s really important: his life.
LaMarcus was diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome back in his rookie year, which causes an abnormality that can cause a rapid heartbeat. He missed games at the end of that season and once again at the beginning of the 2011-12 season, due to his condition.
Tonight’s matchup with the Golden State Warriors will be All-Star-less, because Klay Thompson, Steph Curry, Andre Iguodala, Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker will not be playing.
