LaMarcus Aldridge back in Blazers lineup for matchup with Hawks

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Bad news: The Portland Trail Blazers are on a three-game losing streak and have won only three times since March 5, going 3-8 during that span.

Good news: All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge is back.

The Blazers announced Aldridge would return to the lineup Thursday when Portland takes on the Atlanta Hawks.

Aldridge missed seven games in a row with a lower back contusion.

Despite their losing streak, the Blazers are still in fifth place in the Western Conference standings, meaning they would face the Houston Rockets in a first-round playoff series if the playoffs started today.

Tipoff for the Blazers-Hawks game is 4:30 p.m. Thursday on Comcast SportsNet Northwest.
