Now, they're not so sure. From The Oregonian:
After wearing a heart monitor Monday for 24 hours, the resulting tests were ruled inconclusive. In addition, two doctors had conflicting views of the tests, prompting the Blazers to seek further advice.New GM Kevin Pritchard doesn't "want to get everybody inflated and going crazy over this." Still, wouldn't it be better to get some official word out there rather than have people assuming the worst? Between Eddy Curry, Rony Turiaf, and Fred Hoiberg, it's not like heart problems are absent from the NBA landscape. Whether we're talking Aldridge long-term value, or his fans' genuine concern for him, this air of mystery seems like it could do as much harm as good.
The Blazers would not reveal what the doctors' conclusions were, nor would they comment on possible ailments.
