LaMarcus Aldridge to miss a week

Updated: February 19, 2014, 1:44 AM ET news services

All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge of the Portland Trail Blazers will be out at least a week with a left groin strain, the team announced Tuesday.

Aldridge is averaging 23.9 points, 11.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists through 53 games this season.

The Blazers also announced that backup center Meyers Leonard is out two to three weeks with a left ankle sprain. That leaves the team thin up front with Joel Freeland currently sidelined with a sprained MCL in his right knee.

Without Aldridge and Leonard, the Blazers will have only starting center Robin Lopez and backup forward Thomas Robinson available in the frontcourt.
