Cole Aldrich filled the stat sheet against the Raptors during a 95-92 win with 13 points, 16 boards, one assist, two steals and five blocks in 40 minutes.
He had a double-double on Tuesday and finished the season about as well as anyone would have thought. Tyson Chandler did not play tonight and it allowed Aldrich to get serious run as the primary option in the paint. Aldrich was a lottery pick with the Thunder and there's a decent chance this will be his best game of his career from a fantasy standpoint. Apr 17 - 12:14 AM

Updating a previous item, Cole Aldrich will start against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He had a double-double on Tuesday and will carry some momentum into tonight. He's a fantasy option with Tyson Chandler sitting out.
Apr 16 - 6:36 PM

Cole Aldrich played 25 minutes off the bench and hit 4-of-6 shots for 13 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a block in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

This was basically the biggest game of Aldrich's non-storied career and simply suggests that he should have played more this season for the Knicks. With Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony and possibly Tyson Chandler not likely to play on Wednesday, Aldrich should be in line for another nice night.
Apr 15 - 11:17 PM

Knicks rookie Cole Aldrich had six points, eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 18 minutes on Sunday, marking his second-most playing time of the season.

Mike Woodson said that he'll give his young players more minutes down the stretch, with the playoffs already out of reach, and Aldrich may be one of the guys to benefit the most. Unfortunately, his value is too tentative to bother with him outside of deep leagues.
Apr 13 - 10:13 PM

Cole Aldrich had one of the most shocking double-doubles of the season on Wednesday with 12 points, 10 boards, one assist and three blocks in 25 minutes.

The Knicks were without Tyson Chandler (personal), Amare Stoudemire (rest) and Kenyon Martin (ankle) tonight, so he had a huge chance tonight. Stoudemire just got some rest on a back-to-back set here, so it's hard to get too attached to picking up Aldrich. If you started him somehow tonight, pat yourself on the back.
Mar 13 - 12:04 AM

Cole Aldrich will start at center for the Knicks on Wednesday with both Tyson Chandler (personal) and Amare Stoudemire (rest) unavailable.

Jeremy Tyler will also get heavy minutes as the Knicks cobble together a frontcourt, but neither guy stands out as a convincing short-term option. Aldrich is averaging under one point per game in an end-of-bench role for New York.
Mar 12 - 12:31 PM

Cole Aldrich has been recalled from the Erie BayHawks of the D-League.

Aldrich was sent down on Wednesday along with Toure Murry and Jeremy Tyler to get some extra practice time and will be with the Knicks when they take on the Cavaliers Thursday night. The 27-year old has averaged 13.3 minutes over his last three games, but hasn't done much with his increased playing time and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters other than in the deepest of leagues.
Jan 30 - 11:50 AM

Cole Aldrich saw first quarter minutes against the Bobcats on Friday, finishing with two points, eight boards and two fouls in 15 minutes.

The Knicks are paper thin up front and figure to keep bringing Aldrich off the bench to spell Tyson Chandler. Of course, he doesn't make much fantasy value outside of extremely deep leagues.
Jan 25 - 1:05 AM

Cole Aldrich is likely to see some minutes while Tyson Chandler is out.

Mike Woodson has said he'll likely slide Andrea Bargnani into his center spot while Tyson Chandler is out, but it sounds like Cole Aldrich may see some run as well. Woodson said of Aldrich, "He's gotta be ready to play," so it looks like the 24-year-old will see the floor when the Knicks play Charlotte. His career averages of 2.0 points and 2.3 rebounds, however, speak volumes fantasy-wise.

Knicks training camp invite Cole Aldrich hasn't played tough enough or shown enough energy, according to Mike Woodson.

This could be the death-knell for Aldrich's chances to make the team, which seemingly improved when Jeremy Tyler had foot surgery this week.

Cole Aldrich is apparently dealing with knee issues according to beat writer Jared Zwerling.

"Question is knees; always has been since draft," tweeted Zwerling about Aldrich. He played reasonably well for the Kings at the end of last season, leaving some of their fans wondering why he wasn't pursued this offseason. Apparently this is the answer and regardless he has no fantasy value.

The Knicks announced on Tuesday that they have signed FA center Cole Aldrich to a non-guaranteed deal.

Although the Knickerbockers are rather thin up front, Aldrich is no lock to make the team. The 24-year-old big man boasts career averages of 2.0 points, with 2.3 rebounds, over 7.9 minutes in 89 games over three seasons. He is not on the fantasy radar.
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 05:03:00 PM

The Knicks worked out Cole Aldrich, Ike Diogu and Josh Powell on Tuesday.

They also worked out Ricky Davis and Justin Brownlee on Monday. Aldrich hasn't done much in his career and played a career-high 11.7 minutes in 15 games last year. Diogu wasn't in the NBA last year, but he had a nice FIBA outing, averaging 16.6 points per game. The Knicks are more likely to add a big man, but none of these guys will be in the rotation while the Knicks are healthy.

Cole Aldrich is in the processs of working out for NBA teams.

The well is beginning to dry up for free agent big men and Aldrich's time to sign a deal should be near. He won't be more than an end-of-the-bench big in almost any situation, so there's no need to monitor him for fantasy purposes.
Fri, Aug 16, 2013 06:03:00 PM

The Kings reportedly worked out free agent center Cole Aldrich recently.

Aldrich played sparingly for the Kings last season after being traded to them, but became an unrestricted free agent over the summer. The Kings have 14 guaranteed contracts and might be looking for a partially guaranteed deal for their 15th and last roster spot. Regardless of where Aldrich lands, he'll have no fantasy value this season.
