Aldridge (foot) could play Wednesday against the Mavericks, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

Aldridge has been ruled out for Monday's game, but coach Terry Stotts said he hopes to have his star back for the regular season finale. That said, the Blazers won't force Aldridge into action if he's less than 100 percent, as the goal, of course, is to have him ready to go when the playoffs begin this weekend.

Aldridge (foot) won't play Monday against the Thunder.

Aldridge has missed games sporadically as he continues to prepare for the playoffs. He'll sit for a second straight game Monday, and his status for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks appears to be up in the air at this point. However, the Trailblazers ultimate goal is to have him healthy for the playoffs, so it wouldn't be surprising if he rests for the regular season finale as well. Meyers Leonard started the last game in his place, so he's probably the leading candidate for another start Monday.

Aldridge has a left foot sprain and will not play Saturday against the Jazz, the Oregonian reports.

There's been no explanation offered as to when Aldridge suffered the injury, so it's possible the team is just finding a reason to rest their All-Star heading into the playoffs. Meyers Leonard earned the start in Aldridge's place for Monday's game against the Nets, but Chris Kaman was also sitting out that game, so it's unclear who will get the starting nod Saturday.
