Timberwolves' Cole Aldrich: Plays eight minutes in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Cole Aldrich: Plays only four minutes Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Cole Aldrich: Gets first double-double of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Cole Aldrich: Production suffering in first season in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aldrich finished with no points and three rebounds across 10 minutes in Saturday's 115-102 loss to the Timberwolves.

Aldrich was one of the top per-minute producers at the center spot last season as the backup to the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan, but his productivity has taken a hit this season, despite the fact that he's seen roughly the same amount of playing time in Minnesota as the understudy to Karl-Anthony Towns. He's averaging only 2.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 12.3 minutes per game this season, compared to 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game in 2015-16.

Timberwolves' Cole Aldrich: Provides two points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aldrich contributed two points (1-2 FG) plus a steal in nine minutes during Thursday's loss to Denver.

Aldrich is averaging 10 minutes through Minnesota's first four contests, providing relief off the bench for Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. For his career, Aldrich averages 3.6 points and 3.7 rebounds in 11.0 minutes, and there's no indication that the 28-year-old's production should stray from that this season.
