Aldridge Dislocates Finger in Loss to Warriors


San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge wasn’t feeling his shot against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night. That was kind of hard to do when one of his fingers was bent back in the wrong direction.

Aldridge attempted a reverse layup with 3:18 left in the first quarter of the Spurs’ 112-101 loss to the Warriors, but Andrew Bogut blocked his shot and Aldridge dislocated his right pinkie finger on the play. Aldridge tried to re-enter the game quickly after Spurs trainer Will Sevening popped the dislocated finger back in place. But as soon as Aldridge touched the ball, the finger again popped out.
