  • Aldrich scored three points with two rebounds in ten minutes in Friday's loss to Miami. Aldrich got off the bench for the first time in five games. He could get more playing time with Nemanja Bjelica out for the season with a foot injury. However, head coach Tom Thibodeau stuck mostly with his starters in Friday's game. It's worth monitoring Aldrich's playing time to see if he'll get a larger role.

  • Aldrich played one minute in Monday's 102-88 win over the Kings, recording one block and one turnover and no other statistics. Aldrich has been a fringe option in coach Tom Thibodeau's rotation for the last two months, failing to see double-digit minutes in any of the Timberwolves' 26 games since New Year's Day. It will require an injury to the durable starting frontcourt duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng before Aldrich receives more extensive playing time.

  • Aldrich scored no points and added two assists, one rebound and one block in eight minutes during Friday's 116-108 loss to the Pistons. Aldrich's eight minutes actually matched his most in the last nine games, which speaks to the limited role he holds as the backup to one of the league's top centers in Karl-Anthony Towns. Unless coach Tom Thibodeau decides to utilize more "Twin Towers" lineups with Aldrich and Towns on the court together -- something that doesn't seem to be in the offing -- it's tough to envision Aldrich gaining playing time as the season progresses.

  • Aldrich provided no points, two rebounds and one assist across four minutes in a 101-92 win over the Mavericks on Monday. Aldrich hasn't played more than 10 minutes in any of the Timberwolves' last 12 games, as coach Tom Thibodeau's decision to ride his frontcourt starters heavily hasn't opened up much playing time for the team's reserve options. It will likely take an injury to either Karl-Anthony Towns or Gorgui Dieng before Aldrich gains fantasy relevance, even in deeper leagues.

  • Aldrich scored ten points with 12 rebounds in 27 minutes in Friday's loss to the Knicks. It was his first double-double with the Timberwolves. Aldrich has languished on the bench since joining Minnesota as head coach Tom Thibodeau has given heavy minutes to his starters. Perhaps this performance may finally give Aldrich a larger role.
