With injured star forward Kawhi Leonard sitting on the bench, the Spurs suffered another blow Wednesday night, as LaMarcus Aldridge sprained his right ankle in the first quarter against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Aldridge landed awkwardly after defending Rajon Rondo’s driving layup with 7:17 remaining in the quarter. He tried to play through the pain before leaving the game at the 3:02 mark of the quarter with Spurs head athletic trainer Will Sevening to head to the locker room.

Aldridge re-entered the contest with 7:39 left in the first half, before leaving to the locker room again with 3:17 remaining until intermission.

The Spurs announced at halftime that Aldridge had an ankle sprain and would not return to action. The Spurs did not offer an update on Aldridge following Wednesday’s 121-116 loss.
