LaMarcus Aldridge scored 17 points in Friday's 86-83 loss to the Raptors, hitting just 6-of-25 shots and 4-of-5 free throws.
The Raptors switched Jonas Valanciunas onto LMA early into the game and the move paid dividends for Toronto. Pau Gasol said that Aldridge is going to be the "focal point" of the offense going forward with Kawhi Leonard (quad) out indefinitely, but we'll chalk this up as a rare off night for the big man. The good news is that he salvaged his fantasy line in other categories, racking up 14 rebounds with two assists, one steal, two blocks and one triple in 37 minutes. Jan 19 - 9:34 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge feasted against the Nets during a 100-95 win on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 38 minutes.

The Spurs are back to being LMA's team with Kawhi Leonard (quad) out indefinitely. Aldridge gets a massive 7.7 usage rate bump when he's not next to Kawhi this year while he is better on the boards and as an assist man. His fantasy owners should expect him to put up early-round value for the foreseeable future.
Jan 17 - 11:31 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge hit 11-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 25 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 35 minutes.

Aldridge was great again today, while Pau Gasol took a backseat and had a very quiet 21 minutes. Aldridge has clearly become the leader of this team with Kawhi Leonard's lost season in progress, while Gasol has been hit-or-miss all season. The Spurs were 20-2 vs. the Hawks since 2006, but that number went to 20-3 with the loss.
Jan 15 - 5:32 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge posted 15 points, five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot over 27 minutes in Saturday's 112-80 blowout win against the Nuggets.

Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard lasted slightly longer than some of the others in the starting five, but they powered it down for most of the fourth quarter with the team hammering the visitors. It's a favorable upcoming week for Aldridge and the Spurs, as they have a four-game week starting Monday in Atlanta with no back-to-back situations.
Jan 13 - 11:49 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored a game-high 31 points in Monday's 107-100 win over the Kings.

The Spurs have now beaten the Kings 12 straight times including seven in a row in Sacramento. Aldridge's usage rate climbs from 22.0 to 29.6 when Kawhi Leonard (shoulder) is off the floor, so LMA will see a significant bump in value if Leonard's shoulder continues to sideline him. He hit 13-of-20 shots and 5-of-6 free throws with 12 rebounds, one assist and one block and has now scored 30+ points in back-to-back games for the second time this season.
Jan 9 - 12:36 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge posted 30 points and a season-high 14 rebounds in a losing effort vs. his former team on Sunday, hitting 12-of-21 FGs and 5-of-7 FTs in 35 minutes.

Aldridge added one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer without any turnovers tonight, but he bricked a potential game-winner in Portland. The Spurs held him out of Friday's game as a precaution and sporadic DNPs will be an annoyance for his owners down the stretch, especially during busy parts of the schedule -- they play the second of back-to-back games on Monday, so it can't hurt to confirm the status of guys like Aldridge and Pau Gasol prior to tip-off.
Jan 8 - 12:32 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge will not play against the Suns on Friday.

He's been seeing some serious minutes lately and maybe he's being held out as maintenance. The Spurs do not have a back-to-back set and will play again on Sunday, so consider Aldridge questionable for that. The Spurs did add that this was for rest, so he should be fine for Sunday. For tonight, we should see more Kyle Anderson, Davis Bertans, Joffrey Lauvergne and maybe even more Brandon Paul.
Jan 5 - 6:48 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored a game-high 29 points in Tuesday's 100-91 win over the Knicks.

Aldridge's jumper was on tonight, hitting 10-of-23 shots and 8-of-10 free throws with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one triple. The bad news is he played 37 minutes after seeing 33+ minutes in his previous four games, so knowing the Spurs, they may be tempted to rest him on Wednesday vs. Philly on the second night of a back-to-back set, especially with Joel Embiid (hand) not expected to play.
Jan 2 - 10:29 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge hit 8-of-19 shots and 9-of-12 free throws for 25 points, five rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 36 minutes of Thursday's 119-107 win over the Knicks.

He was iffy for this one, as the Spurs considered giving him a rest, but they shelved Kawhi Leonard instead, allowing Aldridge to feast against the Knicks. Aldridge has scored at least 20 points in four of his last five games, but a day off is likely coming, creating a bit of a headache for his fantasy owners.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 11:51:00 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge and Kyle Anderson are listed as starters on Thursday vs. the Knicks.

Barring a late surprise (we never know with Spurs), Aldridge won't be rested, while Anderson will take Kawhi Leonard's (rest) spot in the lineup. Tony Parker, Danny Green and Pau Gasol are also listed in the first unit. Aldridge gets a bump in value every time Leonard sits, so he'll try to take advantage in a tough matchup vs. Kristaps Porzingis.

LaMarcus Aldridge may be rested on Thursday vs. the Knicks.

Gregg Popovich is doing his best to keep us guessing with less than two hours until tipoff vs. the Knicks. If LMA is out, Pau Gasol figures to be the biggest direct beneficiary.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 07:03:00 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge posted 29 points with 10 rebounds and two assists across 39 minutes in Saturday's 108-99 win in Sacramento.

Aldridge was a very efficient 13-of-22 from the field while hitting 2-of-3 from behind the arc. The double-double was his second over the past five games, and the 13 field goals made tied his most on the road this season. After a season-low 11 points last time out in Utah he stayed out of foul trouble in this one and had his most productive game in the month of December.

LaMarcus Aldridge hit 4-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, six rebounds, one steal, one block and four turnovers before fouling out in 28 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Jazz.

His shot wasn't falling early in this one and the foul trouble dogged him all night. The 11 points tied his season low, but owners can take a little solace in the fact that it was foul trouble that got him tonight, and not Gregg Popovich. Look for him to bounce back on Saturday against the Kings, assuming he's not resting for that one.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 01:17:00 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge made 10-of-17 shots to finish Wednesday's game with 22 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 35 minutes.

Kawhi Leonard's return hasn't eroded Aldridge's offensive role too much for a few reasons -- the Spurs have integrated Aldridge as a pillar of the offense, and Kawhi's minutes have been very limited. Despite a healthy usage rate over the previous five games, Aldridge had cooled off with 43.0% shooting and poor supporting stats -- 1.4 assists, 0.8 blocks, 0.2 steals and zero 3-pointers. He may not reclaim top-20 value this season, but he's better than what we've see the past few weeks.

LaMarcus Aldridge was effective against the Celtics during a thrilling 105-102 win on Friday, scoring 27 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He has to have an All-Star nod locked up, right? As we've said for over a month, LMA is likely going to be taking a noticeable usage rate hit when Kawhi Leonard (quad) returns, but his efficiency on almost every play has been elite. Per Synergy, Aldridge is above average for points per possession on every play type with at least 20 possessions (post up, PNR roll man, spot up, offensive rebounding, cutting and transition). Aldridge has been a top-20 player in standard leagues on the year and he may still have a shot as an early-round guy even with Kawhi back. There's a chance he rests on Saturday, so check back to make sure there's no update here.
