LaMarcus Aldridge: (Back) Playing Monday Staff

Update: Aldridge (back) said he will play Monday against the Pistons, The Oregonian reports.

Recommendation: After testing out his sore back during warmups, Aldridge said he feels good enough to play. Though he will see the floor, be careful not to assume he'll get his usual amount of minutes as his ailing back is apparently still troubling him a bit.
