Blazers’ Aldridge injures left hip

All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge has a hip flexor strain and
is day-to-day.

The 6-foot-11 Aldridge sustained the injury during Wednesday
night’s practice and did not participate in practice on Thursday.
His return is uncertain.

The Blazers opened training camp on Tuesday in preparation for
the coming season.

Aldridge, a seven-year NBA veteran who was named an All-Star for
the second straight year, averaged 21.1 points and 9.1 rebounds per
game last season.

The Blazers also say guard Will Barton sustained a
concussion.
