Re: NBA Today - April 4

Celtics coach Doc Rivers pretty much ruled out Paul Pierce (elbow) for tonight, saying he might return Friday.

Rockets Luther Head (shoulder) practiced Tuesday and is expected to play tonight.

Coach Mike Dunleavy said that the MRI on Sam Cassell's back did not reveal damage, but said he's still considered out indefinitely because of back spasms.

76ers Andre Iguodala (sore back) and and Kyle Korver (sore right wrist) sat out practice on Tuesday, but are each expected to suit up tonight.

Warriors Baron Davis is questionable (disciplinary)

Warriors Monta Ellis is probable (back).

Rookie Aldridge out indefinitely
Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland Trail Blazers rookie LaMarcus Aldridge is out indefinitely after experiencing dizziness and a rapid heartbeat.

He played seven minutes in Saturday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers before he was taken to the hospital. After he wore a heart monitor for 24 hours, the team asked for additional tests on Aldridge, initially diagnosed with dehydration.
The nature of the tests was not revealed.

"We are going to run more tests and get a more accurate diagnosis so we can treat it," Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard said. "That's the biggest thing right now. We're in a ruling-out process."

Travis Outlaw was expected to start in Aldridge's place Wednesday night for Portland's game against the Utah Jazz. Aldridge had taken over the starter's job when Joel Przybilla had season-ending knee surgery.

The Blazers also signed center Luke Schenscher for the remainder of the season.

Portland signed the 7-foot-1 Schenscher to a 10-day contract from the development league's Fort Worth Flyers on March 15, and re-signed him to another 10-day contract March 25.
