LaMarcus Aldridge has also removed himself from Olympic consideration due to a hand injury.
He was dealing with a finger issue back in April and it may have lingered. Aldridge was grabbing his hand at times even in the second round of the postseason. There is no word of any procedures at this time. After a slow start to his season, Aldridge was awesome after the break with averages of 19.9 points, 8.9 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.2 blocks per game.

Gregg Popovich praised LaMarcus Aldridge's quick acclimation to the Spurs.

"He’s fit in quicker than anybody I think we’ve ever had for a first-year guy," Popovich said. "Especially with such an experienced team, him trying to figure out where his place was. I thought he was phenomenal in that regard." Despite the second-round exit, Aldridge and San Antonio now have a blueprint to work with going forward.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 18 points in Game 6 on Thursday, adding 14 rebounds, two assists and one block in 34 minutes.

He was 9-of-18 from the field, but he really slowed down towards the end of this series after averaging 39.5 points in the first two games. The Spurs have a ton of question marks entering the offseason with veterans such as Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili pondering retirement, so maybe Aldridge will see an uptick in minutes in the 2016-17 campaign after averaging just 30.6 minutes during the regular season.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 20 points on 6-of-21 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists, one block, two steals and two turnovers in Tuesday's Game 5 loss.

His scoring output is on the decline since exploding for 38 points in Game 1 and 41 points in Game 2, but his field goal attempts have remained pretty constant. He's been the obvious focal point of the offense along with Kawhi Leonard, but he just couldn't hit anything tonight. He's the first Spur to have five 20-point games in a series since Tim Duncan in 2007 vs. the Suns, so he probably deserves a little bit of slack. He will have to be much better in Game 6 on Thursday to keep this series alive.
May 10 - 11:32 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge made 8-of-21 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line for 24 points against the Thunder on Friday, adding eight rebounds, one steal and one block.

The Thunder didn't really alter their defensive strategy with Aldridge beating up on Serge Ibaka again. Obviously, this was quite as eye-popping as his 79 points in the first two games. Aldridge did looked to be bothered by his right hip in the third quarter, which is the same hip he needed surgery on back in 2012. He returned and looked just fine.
May 7 - 12:29 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge was on fire during a 98-97 loss to the Thunder in Game 2 on Monday, making 15-of-21 from the field for 41 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

He is lighting it up with his jumper and in the post-up game. Aldridge has scored 79 points in the last two games with an absurd 80.9 true shooting percentage. The Spurs have to give him a touch on basically every possession right now, especially with his teammates not clicking. Expect him to have a huge series.
May 3 - 12:34 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge put on a shooting clinic in a 124-92 win over the Thunder on Saturday, making 18-of-23 for 38 points with six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

It's his third-best scoring game of his playoff career. The Thunder completely forgot Aldridge led the NBA in mid-range makes in three of the last four seasons. He was wide open all game and also had a number of easy buckets near the rim, as well. LMA has been fantastic since January and had success against OKC this season, so he'll be dialed in as a high-end DFS play.
Apr 30 - 10:58 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 3:59 PM

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.
Apr 23 - 12:17 AM

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.
