Per the Spurs, Aldridge had the surgery in April, so they’ll have been prepared for this eventuality for quite some time.
The 34-year-old had started 53 games for San Antonio in 2019-20, averaging 18.9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. The Spurs will be one of the teams pushing for the final playoff spot, and Aldridge’s absence is certain to make that task tougher.
