Aldridge finished with 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds and four blocked shots over 35 minutes in Wednesday's 110-98 loss against the Warriors. Aldridge tied a season best with the four blocked shots. His numbers have been down substantially since moving to the Spurs over the past two seasons, as he is no longer averaging 21-23 points like his final five campaigns with the Trail Blazers. Despite the offensive downturn since the start of the 2015-16 season, he is still very useful across most fantasy formats.
Aldridge scored 14 points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 29 minutes in Monday's 103-74 win over the Cavs. Aldridge contributed a little bit of everything as the Spurs rolled over the struggling Cavs Monday. San Antonio has now won five straight games and Aldridge's play has reflected their success. He's averaging an even 20 points per game on 50.6 percent from the field with 7.4 rebounds, two assists and 2.4 combined blocks and steals during the win streak-- all right in line or above his full season averages.
Aldridge provided 23 points (10-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks over 36 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 win over the Grizzlies. Aldridge took advantage of a poor shooting Memphis team to grab a team-high eight boards, marking his third game in the last four with at least that number of rebounds. He had the hot hand from the field once again as well, and he's now shot 54.9 percent (39-for-71) over the last four games. He's enjoying one of his best months of the season overall despite his recent cardiac scare, with averages of 18.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 blocks across 34.6 minutes over 10 games.
Aldridge registered a team-high 26 points (12-24 FG, 2-2 fT) FT) to go with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 38 minutes in a 100-93 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday. Aldridge hasn't been a major presence on the glass since returning from a two-game absence due to a cardiac issue, but he's settled back in as a consistent scoring threat for the Spurs, providing at least 18 points in his last four contests. It's somewhat surprising that coach Gregg Popovich handed the star big man such extended minutes Tuesday, but Aldridge may continue to benefit from healthy workloads while the Spurs vie for the top seed in the Western Conference.
Aldridge submitted 21 points (9-18 FG, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one block across 34 minutes in a 104-96 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday. After going 9-of-24 from the field in a loss Wednesday to the Trail Blazers in his return from a two-game absence due to heart arrhythmia, Aldridge got his shooting back on track Saturday, but his efforts weren't enough to upend the Grizzlies. The fact that he's been given 30-plus minutes in the Spurs' last two games suggests that the team isn't concerned about Aldridge's medical issue presenting any problems, but he's still at risk of sitting for rest purposes Sunday against the lowly Kings as San Antonio wraps up a back-to-back set.
