LaMarcus Aldridge scored 18 points with 10 rebounds, four assists and two turnovers during a Game 3 loss to the Warriors on Thursday.
The Spurs just don't have the offense right now and the Warriors know that limiting Aldridge likely means they'll be getting a win. San Antonio will try to avoid a sweep on Sunday night at home, but things aren't looking good for a team that typically makes a postseason run. Apr 20 - 12:02 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge hit 11-of-21 shots and 12-of-12 free throws for 34 points, 12 rebounds and three assists in Monday's 116-100 loss to the Warriors, dropping the Spurs into an 0-2 hole in Round 1.

Aldridge was great and Patty Mills scored 21, but it's hard to see the Spurs hanging with the Warriors without Kawhi Leonard (quad). This was a nice opportunity for the Spurs, as they led by seven at halftime, but the Warriors finished out strong in the second half and won handily. Game 3 is in San Antonio on Thursday, and it's important to keep in mind the Warriors still don't have Stephen Curry (knee), who should be back in Round 2 or 3. The Spurs were 33-8 at home this year, so they've got a chance in Games 3 and 4, but it feels like the Warriors are too young and quick to lose this series.
Apr 17 - 1:21 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 14 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block during a 113-92 loss to the Warriors in Game 1 on Saturday.

The Spurs had more space issues than Apollo 13 in this game, and they couldn't get anything going in the paint. In the first three quarters, the Spurs had zero second-chance points and they only shot 5-of-21 in the paint. The Warriors kept throwing doubles at Aldridge and it didn't hurt Golden State because there isn't enough shooting around him. He struggled against them in the postseason last year and it could be a similar story this time around.
Apr 14 - 5:36 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored eight points with seven rebounds, three assists and no turnovers in 22 minutes during a 129-115 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday.

This Spurs team just isn't what we're used to as they sit in the No. 7 seed and will take on the Warriors this weekend. Aldridge was a complete disaster in the final three games of the season without Kawhi Leonard, but at least the Warriors aren't 100 percent. He'll have his hands full with a lot of Draymond Green.
Apr 11 - 11:03 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled with 15 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks as the Spurs made the playoffs for the 21st consecutive season with Monday's win over the Kings.

The Spurs and Thunder had a tough road to the playoffs, but both teams got it done and secured a spot in the postseason with tonight's wins. The Spurs play the Pelicans in Wednesday's finale, but it's anyone's guess who Gregg Popovich throws out there. The Spurs were just trying to get in and avoid a lost season after suffering through a nine-game season from Kawhi Leonard. Mission accomplished.
Apr 9 - 11:33 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge was good for 28 points, eight rebounds and four steals over 38 minutes in Saturday's 116-105 victory against Portland.

The Spurs were on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs were concerned a few weeks ago. However, Aldridge and his teammates have banded together to win 10 in a row at home to get themselves right back into playoff shape. They might not necessarily go as far as Spurs teams have in the past, but they will be a tough out for one of the top contenders, especially if Kawhi Leonard can rejoin the team, too.
Apr 8 - 12:28 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 28 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 44 minutes during a 122-112 overtime loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.

The Spurs continue to feed him, but he needs some help. Plus, the Spurs just aren't playing defense like they usually do and coach Gregg Popovich mentioned how they can stop people right now. The loss today is kind of a positive for Aldridge's fantasy value because they almost have to play LMA the rest of the way this season.
Apr 5 - 1:14 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge went 13-of-21 from the field and 9-of-9 from the charity stripe on his way to 35 points in Tuesday's narrow loss to the Clippers.

Aldridge added nine rebounds, one assist, two steals, three swats and zero turnovers in his 37 minutes of action, and he got off to a hot start, scoring 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting through a short stint in the first. LMA pretty much got what he wanted all night long, but he didn't get much help on the offensive end from his teammates, and the Spurs ended up blowing an early 19-point lead. They've now lost 10 of their past 11 road games.
Apr 4 - 2:13 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge came through with a 23-point, 14-rebound double-double during Sunday's win over the Rockets, to go with two assists, three blocks and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Aldridge did a really nice job cleaning up the glass on defense with his 30.6 defensive rebounding rate, and the Rockets didn’t really have any answers for him, as he finished 11-of-19 from the field and 1-of-1 from the stripe. With the win, the Spurs are now just 2.5 games back from the No. 3 seed out West and they have a one-game advantage over Minnesota for the No. 4 spot. It looks like the Spurs will make the postseason after all.
Apr 1 - 6:36 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) was fantastic in Thursday's 103-99 win over the Thunder, recording 25 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, two blocks and four turnovers in 34 minutes.

Aldridge got off to a hot start in this one, piling up 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting by halftime, and while he slowed down after halftime, he came through with some clutch buckets for San Antonio down the stretch. LMA didn’t appear to be all that bothered by his knee, and we’d expect him to continue to push through the pain as long as the Spurs’ post-season relevant.
Mar 29 - 11:17 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is being listed in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Thunder.

The Spurs are fighting for their postseason lives, so it looks like LMA will fight through the pain and he should be playing a full complement of minutes tonight. The other listed starters are Dejounte Murray, Patty Mills, Kyle Anderson and Pau Gasol, so barring a last-minute change, Danny Green will come off the bench.

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) will play against the Thunder on Thursday.

After a knee scare on Tuesday and an MRI, Aldridge won't miss a game due to a contusion. There's no talk of him being limited and he should be in the starting lineup. The Spurs need this one, so expect them to feed their best offensive player.
Mar 29 - 6:21 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is still considered questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Thunder.

He spent the majority of his time with the strength and conditioning staff at the morning shootaround, so he likely won't test his knee until warmups. An MRI showed no structural damage, so the good news is that he's day-to-day with a contusion. If LMA can't play, a number of players will have to step up including Pau Gasol, Davis Bertans, Rudy Gay and Joffrey Lauvergne.

An MRI showed no structural damage to LaMarcus Aldridge's knee, and he is considered day-to-day.

The Spurs get good news here, and maybe he has a chance to play on Thursday against the Thunder. Aldridge did not return from his knee injury on Tuesday night, and it was originally called a contusion. If he's out, that means basically every rotation player would have to score more with Pau Gasol, Davis Bertans and Joffrey Lauvergne would have to step up.
Mar 28 - 6:07 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday against the Thunder.

As per usual, it's fairly standard protocol for teams to list players as questionable the day after an injury and on a day that the team is giving an MRI. In other words, don't put too much stock into this update. We should have a more official update from the Spurs later today. If LMA is out, expect Pau Gasol, Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray to have to score more while Joffrey Lauvergne, Davis Bertans and Kyle Anderson would have to play more.
