PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Portland Trail Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge was helped off the floor and taken into the locker room after apparently rolling his ankle in a game Tuesday night.

Aldridge let out a yell and fell to the floor after landing on Trevor Booker's foot less than two minutes into the first quarter of Portland's game with the Washington Wizards. He held onto his left leg while shaking his right.

The crowd in the Rose Garden was silent while Aldridge was lying on the floor, but let out an audible groan as the replay was shown. After a couple minutes Aldridge was helped off the floor by teammates and athletic trainer Jay Jensen.
