LaMarcus Aldridge will have an MRI on his injured left knee, with the San Antonio Spurs hoping they won’t be forced to try to make the playoffs without another star player.
Aldridge left the Spurs’ 116-106 loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night with a bruised left knee, the latest blow in a season that has included Kawhi Leonard being limited to nine games with a nagging quadriceps injury. Aldridge is the biggest reason San Antonio’s season hasn’t been derailed by Leonard’s absence — and a tough schedule ahead makes the matchup-nightmare center’s status worth watching.

Ty Lue has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Clippers and Lue’s representative in the contract talks, Andy Miller, completed negotiations on a deal Thursday afternoon, sources said.
The Clippers’ search landed on Lue based upon a confidence that his championship pedigree and playoff successes as a head coach in Cleveland, as well as his strong ability to communicate with players, will resonate within a franchise that underachieved in the 2019-2020 season.
