During his rookie season, Aldridge was diagnosed with the heart condition Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which causes an accelerated heartbeat. He missed a few games that season and had a procedure prior to his sixth season in the league to again address the problem. Here’s hoping this current heart condition is one Aldridge can return to full health sooner rather than later from.
