LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday, scoring 15 points with 10 rebounds and one steal.
He was 6-of-11 from the field and only played 26 minutes due to the lopsided score. The Spurs coasted through the first round of the playoffs, but they will have a much tougher opponent in the second round (likely the Thunder) which means that Aldridge's minutes and production should both start to trend up -- he only played more than 27 minutes one time in the first round.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He's been a little underwhelming in this series after destroying the Grizzlies in the regular season. Coach Gregg Popovich has been impressed with Aldridge's defense in this series as the Spurs continue to play at slower pace. Expect LMA to put up better numbers in the next round.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 10 points with eight rebounds and four blocks in 27 minutes on Tuesday vs. Memphis.

The Spurs won by 26 points, so that explains the low minutes. Aldridge had 17 points in Game 1 and played just 27 minutes in that one as well, so the Grizzlies' inability to keep these games close has been a buzzkill for his fantasy output. The bright side is that his finger hasn't been an issue, as he's shooting 50.0 percent from the field in this series.
Apr 20 - 12:12 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge said that his finger is doing "okay."

"It’s okay," Aldridge said after practice on Friday. "Just trying to get used to my new tape job. I’ll be okay." Aldridge admitted that his finger is still a little sore, but Manu Ginobili said that the team can't use than as an excuse not to perform. "We need him to be healthy and feeling confident," Ginobili said. "He’s sore and I don’t know how he’s going to feel for the game." Aldridge should be fine and could have a monster series vs. the depleted Grizzlies.
Apr 16 - 11:40 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard will all be rested for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavs.

Aldridge hurt his finger again on Tuesday, so it's far from surprising to see him earn a rest day with the No. 2 seed out West all locked up for San Antonio. David West is also going to be rested Wednesday night, so there will be a ton of minutes available for guys like Boban Marjanovic, Matt Bonner and Boris Diaw.

LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder and is not expected to play on Wednesday vs. Dallas.

He spent most of the second half in the locker room because his finger is reportedly a "little sore." He is going to be held out of Wednesday's game vs. Dallas anyways and there is nothing left to play for, so the Spurs are just being cautious. Expect David West and Boris Diaw (groin) to step up on Wednesday. Aldridge finished with eight points, five boards and one block in 18 minutes.
Apr 12 - 10:31 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) finished Sunday's 92-86 defeat with 24 points on 11-of-18 shooting, 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes.

The Spurs were playing without Tim Duncan (rest) and Boris Diaw (groin), so Aldridge took on an even bigger workload as a go-to scoring option. He fared well but didn't get much help tonight, as Golden State held his teammates to a combined 62 points on 23-of-72 shooting (31.9 percent). With back-to-back games looming on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aldridge is a definite DNP-CD risk.
Apr 10 - 9:39 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) will play on Sunday vs. the Warriors as expected.

Coach Gregg Popovich said that Aldridge's finger is "fine," so he shouldn't be too limited tonight and his owners will want to deploy him in lineups. Apart from Tim Duncan (rest) and Boris Diaw (right adductor), the Spurs are expected to be close to full strength tonight.
Apr 10 - 5:32 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

He was given the night off on Friday vs. Denver as a precaution and should see his normal workload tonight. Coach Gregg Popovich made it clear that Aldridge's finger is fine, so his owners will want to get him back in their lineups.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said that LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) is "fine."

"He just pulled it out of joint and they couldn’t get it back in," Popovich said Friday. "But they finally got it back in. He’s fine." Aldridge finished with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 29 minutes on Thursday vs. the Warriors, but he was given the night off on Friday to rest. "Every time I shot, it just didn’t feel natural," Aldridge said. "I just had to play through it." The good news is that Aldridge is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Warriors, so the Spurs don't seem to be too concerned about his finger.
Apr 9 - 11:33 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge (finger, rest) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

The Spurs didn't mention his finger on the injury report, but he did tweak it on Thursday vs. the Warriors. He did play through it and looked fine, so this is just a night off for the veteran. His owners can expect to have him back for Sunday's rematch with the Warriors. Tim Duncan is surprisingly on the active list, but we could also see Boban Marjanovic get some minutes tonight.
Apr 8 - 1:58 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge hurt his finger on Thursday and returned, finishing with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

It doesn't sound serious and coach Gregg Popovich didn't seem concerned. "It came out, they put it back in, it came out again, they put it back in," Popovich said after the game. Aldridge is almost certainly going to rest on Friday.
Apr 8 - 1:27 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge had 14 points, seven rebounds and four steals in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 88-86 win over the Jazz.

The question becomes, will the Spurs play their studs against the Warriors on Thursday night at Golden State? We're guessing Gregg Popovich gets creative with his lineup for that one, so be sure to watch for news before setting lineups. The Spurs have nothing to play for and Pop may not want to show the Warriors his true lineup prior to the playoffs. Of course, the two teams will meet again on Sunday at San Antonio, and the studs are more likely to play in that one.
Apr 6 - 12:42 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge dominated the Raptors on Saturday with 31 points, 15 boards, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes.

It's his first 30-15 line since December 2014 and third 30-plus scoring game in his last four. Surprisingly, Aldridge had just one 30-plus scoring game with the Spurs before this hot streak. Now that he's clicking in a big way, the Spurs look as dangerous as ever.
Apr 2 - 11:34 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge made 3-of-10 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs to finish Wednesday's 100-92 victory with 11 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

Aldridge didn't have any turnovers in 32 minutes and this isn't a total loss for fantasy purposes, all things considered. He averaged 31.5 minutes in his previous two games but there was a rest day sandwiched in between, and his owners will need to be keenly aware of potential DNPs in the Spurs' final seven games.
