LaMarcus Aldridge had eight points and five rebounds in 20 minutes, but left for the locker room early in the third quarter and did not return.
Team officials said Aldridge experienced soreness in the pinky finger he had dislocated Thursday at Golden State, and coaches opted to keep him out the rest of the game.
Parker later confirmed Aldridge’s finger had been bothering him, but knew nothing of the severity.
“To be honest, I don’t know (the extent),” Parker said. “I know it’s his finger, but I don’t know how bad it is.”
