  • Aminu generated nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and three steals across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 123-117 win over the Warriors. Aminu wasn't needed much on the offensive end with Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic taking on a lion's share of the workload, but he still rewarded fantasy owners with a solid all-around line. The 27-year-old's production has been all over the map this season, a relatively unsurprising fact considering the high-usage roles of his aforementioned teammates. However, Aminu has been relatively reliable on the rebounding front, and factoring in Wednesday's production, he's hauled in double-digit boards in three of the past five contests, as well as in five of the last 10 games overall.

  • Aminu produced nine points (3-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals and one assist across 29 minutes in Monday's 111-91 loss to the Pistons. Aminu has never been an efficient shooter, but he has been terribly inefficient in his past two games, hitting just seven shots on 24 attempts from the floor, including just one successful attempt on eight tries from three. Luckily, Aminu is a strong contributor in the rebound department, which means if he can become slightly better offensively, he can be a threat for double-doubles on a nightly basis in a slacking Blazer's lineup.

  • Aminu posted 11 points (4-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 104-96 win over the Clippers. Aminu recorded only his fourth double-double of the season, but just barely. He shot only 30.7 percent from the floor, a full 11 percent below his normal average. Aminu does have a talent for putting together decent stat lines to qualify as Portland's fourth-best producer, though he does lack consistency and can't be depended on like some of the other Trail Blazers in the starting five.

  • Aminu contributed 19 points (7-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and three steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 119-113 loss to the Pelicans. The whole Trail Blazer offense played well Friday night, with Aminu reaping the rewards of solid ball movement and open three-point looks. However, he was pummeled on the defensive end against the two all-star big men that the Pelicans boast, especially because the Blazers played small Friday with Evan Turner (illness) out. The plethora of rebounds was more of a game flow benefit rather than skill, and he shouldn't reach 16 field goals attempted again as it was his season-high.

  • Aminu managed 24 points (9-17 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 41 minutes in Monday's 124-120 overtime win over the Bulls. Aminu's scoring total was a season high, and 17 of his points notably came after halftime. The eight-year veteran drained five three-pointers for the fourth time since Dec. 5 as well, and he's now shot between 44.4 percent and 52.9 percent in three of his last four games. Aminu's offensive involvement doesn't often approximate the season-high 17 shot attempts he put up Monday, but he remains capable of a double-digit scoring effort and potential double-double on any given night.
