LaMarcus Aldridge's wrist X-rays came back negative and he's been diagnosed with a sprain.
Owners can safely exhale. Although the problem is on Aldridge's shooting hand, he is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Heat. We previously blurbed this as just "water under the bridge," but we had second thoughts and will simply advise owners to not panic but to take shooting wrist injuries seriously in general. Aldridge has dealt with chest, ankle, back and this wrist injury throughout the year, but has missed just two games and is averaging 20.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and a career-high 1.3 blocks.
