Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge says that it "felt good" to return from a seven-game absence with a back injury.

LaMarcus Aldridge has said that he "felt good" in his return from a back injury during the Portland Trail Blazers' win over the Atlanta Hawks.

The forward, who missed seven games with a lower back contusion, was the team's leading scorer in the 100-85 win with 25.

The 28-year-old told reporters: "It felt good to be back. I didn't feel 100% but I did what I could do and luckily I made shots.

"[The win was] very important, just for our mental psyche, our confidence, the standings."

Portland face the Chicago Bulls later today.
