  • Aminu produced 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five rebounds and three blocks across 34 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 126-117 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday. Despite the disappointing team outcome, Aminu generated a third straight strong offensive performance. In fact, the veteran's scoring total served as a season best, and it came on the strength of a new high-water mark of four made threes. The 28-year-old's three swats were also a season high and pushed his November total to six, following seven-game stretch to open the season when he posted just a sole block.

  • Aminu went for 11 points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds and two steals across 30 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 100-94 win over the Celtics on Sunday. Aminu exclusively hit from long distance Sunday, but his buckets came at particularly crucial moments. The veteran floor-spacer drained a 26-footer with 2:34 remaining after the Celtics had closed their deficit to two points, and he then extended Portland's lead back out to six points with a 25-footer with a minute left in the contest. Aminu's scoring contributions tend to fluctuate, but he now has back-to-back 11-point efforts and has hauled in between six and 13 rebounds in all six November contests.

  • Aminu generated 17 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and one block across 33 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 132-119 win over the Pelicans on Thursday. Aminu helped pick up some of the slack on offense on a night when C.J. McCollum struggled to find the net on the way to just eight points. The performance was a fitting representation of what Aminu can bring to the table when he remains involved on offense, as he flashed his underrated shot -- including his three-point prowess -- while also putting in his customarily stellar work on the boards. Due to a good portion of the usage usually going elsewhere in the Blazers' attack, Aminu can't be expected to produce in this fashion on offense consistently, but his stalwart rebounding work and occasional scoring outbursts continue affording him value in all formats and as a DFS play.

  • Aminu registered 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds and one steal across 29 minutes in Monday's 103-93 win over the Pacers. Aminu has been a fairly consistent source of points and rebounds so far this season, averaging eight points and nine rebounds per game so far this year. He faces pressure from Zach Collins off the bench for minutes, but Aminu has done nothing to lose his spot yet and should retain his role moving forward.

  • Aminu finished with 16 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, and one steal in 35 minutes during Monday's 125-124 overtime loss to the Wizards. Aminu had himself a nice outing Monday in what was, unfortunately, a losing effort. He is well-known for producing numbers like this only to follow up with a dud. As with last season, Aminu is going to flirt with standard league value, likely making his way in and out of rosters from week to week. Performances like this one are thoroughly enjoyable and will probably give him a stay of execution for at least another week, perhaps less for those owners with a little less patience.
