  • Aminu contributed 25 points (7-12 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 35 minutes during a 128-103 loss to the Warriors on Monday. Aminu was just one point shy of his season high in scoring as he finished with 25 points and matched a season high with five three-pointers made. He was the only player on the team other than Damian Lillard to score more than 14 points. Aminu had an up and down season, and this performance came in a somewhat meaningless game, as the team was getting blown out for the entire game.

  • Aminu will not play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans due to rest purposes, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports. With Aminu out, the Trail Blazers will now be without five of their key players including three regular starters. In his absence, Meyers Leonard will likely get the start at power forward alongside Noah Vonleh, while Jake Layman will is expected to see extended minutes off the bench with Portland rather light on frontcourt depth Wednesday.

  • Aminu compiled two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and 12 rebounds over 31 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 win over the Jazz. Aminu was originally slated for the starting five but was removed in favor of Meyers Leonard close to tipoff. The veteran forward turned in one of his worst shooting efforts of the season, but as customary, salvaged the outing with an excellent showing on the glass. It was Aminu's second double-digit rebound effort in the last eight games and he's now averaging 7.2 boards over five April contests.

  • Aminu will come off the bench during Saturday's game against the Jazz, Jason Quick of CSNNW.com reports. Aminu was originally expected to start at power forward, but coach Terry Stotts elected to roll with Meyers Leonard in the starting lineup. Aminu's next chance to return to his starting role will come Monday against the Spurs.

  • Aminu totaled 15 points (4-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-7 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one block over 40 minutes in Thursday's 105-98 win over the Timberwolves. Aminu got the starting nod at center with Meyers Leonard having struggled over the last several games while filling in for Jusuf Nurkic (leg). He turned in his sixth consecutive double-digit scoring effort, a career high. Aminu also drained multiple threes for the third time in the last five games, and could be in line for a notable boost in production if he continues to draw starts at the five for the final three contests of the regular season.
