LaMarcus Aldridge made 5-of-15 from the field for 10 points with six rebounds, one assist, four blocks and one steal in 31 minutes on Thursday.
He's in a slump right now. Aldridge lives and dies by the midrange and has made just 32.4 percent from that range over his last five -- those shots also account for 56.7 percent of his shot total. In that five-game span, Aldridge averaged 11.6 points, 6.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals. He's a buy-low option. Dec 9 - 1:13 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge hit just 3-of-8 shots for six points, two rebounds, three steals and no blocks in 30 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Wolves.

Aldridge played pretty well in his previous two games, scoring 18 and 19 points, but had just five points on 2-of-9 shooting last Wednesday. LMA has been hit or miss under Gregg Popovich this season and is fairly unreliable. He's still a solid player to hold and use in season-long leagues, but we simply don't trust him in DFS. And tonight's a good reason as to why.

LaMarcus Aldridge hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 18 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 36 minutes on Monday.

It's been a bumpy right for Aldridge under Gregg Popovich this season, but he's playing well right now, averaging 16.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. And unfortunately, the fact he's played in seven straight means he's probably due for a day of rest soon.

LaMarcus Aldridge flopped on Wednesday with just five points (2-of-9 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), eight rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 32 minutes of action.

The Spurs have scored 21.5 percent of their points this season off mid-range jumpers, which is the highest mark in the league. That's partly due to Kawhi Leonard, but mid-range maestro Aldridge is also a huge reason. Neither of the Spurs' studs found the range tonight, spoiling a golden opportunity against a poor Mavericks' defense, but this random dud shouldn't dissuade fantasy owners.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 16 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block and one triple vs. the Magic on Tuesday.

LA hit 7-of-12 from the field with one turnover, but split a pair of shots at the line. Aldridge picked up a maintenance day the last time the Spurs played the Mavericks, and now they play the Mavs on the second night of a back-to-back set on Wednesday. It's the perfect storm for another "DNP-Pop", so make sure he's active before plugging him into lineups.
Nov 30 - 12:13 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored just 10 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and no turnovers in 32 minutes against the Celtics on Monday.

Excluding his rest day on Monday, Aldridge was on a roll with three consecutive games with at least 21 points. He's getting the ball more and his minutes have jumped to 33.5 in his previous active November games. Keep him rolling, but make sure he's a go on Saturday in Washington D.C.
Nov 25 - 4:31 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge returned on Wednesday with 23 points on 8-of-17 field goals and 7-of-8 free throws, adding seven boards, two assists, two blocks, one steal and one turnover.

He played 37 minutes and his return sent David Bertans back to a bit role off the bench. Aldridge doesn't have many splashy, high-scoring games like he used to in Portland, but he's still a top-40 value this season on the strength of his efficient offense and across-the-board contributions.
Nov 23 - 10:19 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, sending Davis Bertans back to the bench.

Bertans drew the start on Monday night with Aldridge getting Popp'd, but he won't be playing much tonight with LA back on the court. Pau Gasol's value takes a bit of a hit with the return of Aldridge.
Nov 23 - 5:49 PM

The Spurs are resting LaMarcus Aldridge and Tony Parker on Monday vs. Dallas.

They will dress and will be available, but the Spurs are going to give them the night off in a game that they should comfortably win. Expect Aldridge to be back in the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Hornets. David Lee and Kyle Anderson are both candidates to start Monday.
Nov 21 - 7:36 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting in a win over the Lakers on Friday.

He quietly had one of the best lines of the night, adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 36 minutes. Aldridge has now shot 50 percent or higher in three straight games and can now look forward to a cupcake matchup vs. the Mavs on Monday.
Nov 19 - 1:53 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 21 points in a 110-105 win over the Kings on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He's been fairly underwhelming as a scorer with tonight as just his third 20-point game on the season. In his last five, Aldridge averaged 16.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals. He was a slow starter last year, so maybe he's on the same pattern for this season. He's hanging in the fifth-round range and should climb a bit.
Nov 17 - 1:28 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge hit 5-of-13 shots for 16 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in 35 minutes of Saturday's 106-100 win over the Rockets.

After double-doubling in the season opener, LMA hadn't done so until Friday, which means he now has two straight double-doubles. Perhaps no player is safe from Gregg Popovich's bench shenanigans, LMA included. But he's hot right now and is traditionally a slow starter, so it may be time to start counting on Aldridge. But either way, Pop pulling the strings makes us nervous.

After sitting out Sunday, LaMarcus Aldridge is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

The initial reason given for Aldridge missing Sunday's contest was "rest," but Coach Pop raised some eyebrows when he later told reporters that Aldridge was dealing with a little bit of knee soreness. Thus, it is encouraging to see Aldridge back in the lineup and ready to roll on Tuesday.
Nov 1 - 7:10 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge disputed media reports that he is unhappy in San Antonio.

Aldridge swears there’s nothing to the rumors that he and the Spurs aren't on the same page. "That’s just media," Aldridge told USA TODAY Sports. "And that’s why I don’t get into it. The organization is happy with me, and I’m happy with them, and as long as we keep a good relationship then everything is fine."

Gregg Popovich said that LaMarcus Aldridge is dealing with a little bit of knee soreness.

He was listed as out on Sunday for rest purposes, so the Spurs are probably just being cautious here. We'll keep him on the injury report to be safe, but he should be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.
