Spurs F LaMarcus Aldridge underwent an arthroscopic procedure and rotator cuff debridement on his right shoulder on April 24th and will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 NBA season.
Aldridge’s season comes to an end after he underwent multiple procedures on his right shoulder. As they’re just four games back of the eighth-seed Memphis Grizzlies for a playoff spot, San Antonio has been invited to Walt Disney World to partake in the remainder of the regular season. Aldridge’s absence means that F Trey Lyles likely remains in the starting lineup, and an uptick in minutes for guys like Rudy Gay, Lonnie Walker IV, and Jakob Poeltl.
LaMarcus Aldridge supplied 24 points (10-23 FG, 1-4 3PT, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, three steals, and four blocks across 36 minutes of action Tuesday night.

In a wild turn of events, Aldridge has gone from doubtful to play to probable on today’s 1:30 PM EST NBA Injury Report. Aldridge has missed the last six games due to the nagging shoulder issue, but it looks like he’ll be able to take the court tonight against Dallas. No word on if he’ll have a minutes restriction, but if you own Aldridge, you’re starting him, as long as you took him off the IR prior to today’s news. Drew Eubanks would head back to the bench if LMA suits up tonight.
