(Reuters) - Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge will miss at least a week with a left groin strain, the team announced on Tuesday.

Aldridge sat out during the fourth quarter of a February 8 game against Minnesota because of the injury but has been playing through it and was featured sparingly in Sunday's All-Star Game.

The Blazers said he would be re-evaluated in a week and could miss more time.

Aldridge and the Blazers are enjoying a breakout season, with the 6ft-11in player averaging a career best 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds per game.

Portland (36-17) has surprised many by their strong start to the campaign and are fifth in the Western Conference.

The Blazers's post-season credentials will now be put to the test, however, as they face five games in the next eight days without their leading player.

Not that anytime is a good time to get injuries but they are locked in a tight battle for third out West.

Unfortunate,  but at least there is still a long time left in the season so I doubt it has any long last effects.

He was a late game inclusion, when they played against OKC just before the All star break.

You could tell he was struggling, shooting 5-22 and 4 turnovers.
