LaMarcus Aldridge Hospitalized With ‘Deadly Blood Virus’

While recovering from his recent hip surgery, LaMarcus Aldridge wrote on Blazers.com blog that he was hospitalized this Friday with a potentially deadly blood virus but didn’t mention what the virus was: “On Saturday I came down with a blood virus. I quickly became sick and had to be rushed to the hospital. I thought it was a case of bad food or a bad cold, but I was wrong. It turned out to be a very serious virus that if not treated quickly could actually be deadly! One thing I know for sure is that I’ve never felt worse in my life and there were times I wasn’t really sure where I was going. Thankfully I had a lot of family support and great medical care that helped me fight through it and now I’ve turned the corner and I’m feeling much better.”

    Was this “virus” a result of his hip surgery? Lawyer up dude.

  • Rustler

    no one should have to go through that kind of experience, hope u get better man

  • LAguneroFan

    It was probably the result of a loss of blood during the surgery, thus requiring a blood transfusion. As a result he probably picked up the virus off of an infected blood packet. Bloodless surgery is the way to go nowadays by far.

    The source of the virus is reportedly the word “TRAILBLAZERS” on Aldridge’s jersey, which also emits dangerous levels of radiation and attracts swarms of locusts…

    For real though, I’m prayin Lamarcus would be back to his regular self quickly. Being sick is no joke and I hope he feels better.

    I hope he gets better. What is it with Portland’s luck/injuries?

  • ASDD

    Hopefully it’s not a virus that leads him to go ZOMBIE.

    Of all the team owners wanting to move their teams to another city surely the Trailblazers owners must be considering moving the hell away from Portland and all of the bad luck that seems to fester there. If I was a player I’d never ever take a trade to Portland even if they offered me the Moon.

    yep definitely the water LOL

    As much as LA would love to stay in POR. Dude needs to get outta there asap. Roy and Oden are just examples of the negative stuff going on there. Now he has a blood virus? Not saying he couldnt have gotten it anywhere else. But I know im not the only one that thinks its ALWAYS something going on with the POR team. LA could come to LA for Pau or Bynum. Put Pau in the post where he is most effective and give LA that mid range jumper that he can hit much better than Pau. Same thing with Bynum. But I do think they could play better together as opposed to Bynum and Pau.
