Top LaMarcus Aldridge News

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Efficient performance in loss

    Aldridge accumulated 18 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and six rebounds across 28 minutes during Saturday's 113-107 loss to the Suns.

    Aldridge thrived off the bench for the Nets earlier this month and has looked good since moving into the starting lineup two games ago, putting up 17 and 18 points, respectively. The veteran power forward might be past his prime, but he can still produce when needed. He has scored at least 15 points in five games in a row while also pulling down 7.6 boards per game and shooting a strong 58.1 percent from the field in that span.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Starting Wednesday

    Aldridge is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Michael Grady of YES Network reports.

    Aldridge will make his first start of the season after posting his first double-double of the year in Monday's victory over the Cavs. As a result, Blake Griffin will shift to the bench. Aldridge is averaging 13.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 21.4 minutes per game this season.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Notches first double-double of 2021

    Aldridge produced 21 points (10-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds and one block across 34 minutes during Monday's 117-112 victory over Cleveland.

    Aldridge put together an efficient shooting night, finishing in double figures for the third consecutive game. He remains in a bench role behind Blake Griffin but continues to see 20-plus minutes on a nightly basis, averaging 21.4 minutes over 17 contests in 2021.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Season-high 24 points vs. Cavs

    Aldridge provided 24 points (11-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 109-99 victory over the Cavaliers.

    Aldridge made easy work out of Ed Davis, who was getting a spot start for Jarrett Allen while Evan Mobley (elbow) is also sidelined. Aldridge's scoring has been inconsistent this season. He has four 20-point games and six games with fewer than 10 points.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Major interior presence in win

    Aldridge posted 24 points (11-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a block in Wednesday's 109-99 victory over the Cavs.

    Aldridge saw a bump in minutes with Paul Millsap (personal) and Nicolas Claxton (non-COVID illness) both sidelined and performed exceptionally well, finishing the outing with only his second 20-plus point game in the month of November. The low-post threat hasn't really expanded his range like many assumed would occur entering his second stint with the Nets, but that could be a byproduct of a more concentrated minutes restriction to begin the season.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Posts 21 points in win

    Aldridge scored 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and added eight rebounds and one block in 22 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Magic.

    Aldridge was able to tie his season high in rebounds and he also set a new season high in three-pointers made. The 36-year-old has been a very important piece for the Nets this season despite his limited playing time, as he has averaged 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks while playing only 20.0 minutes per game. The veteran has shown no signs of age slowing him down, though it remains to be seen whether he can keep up this level of efficiency.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Excellent in limited minutes

    Aldridge supplied 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and a steal over 23 minutes in a 118-95 loss to the Bulls on Monday.

    Aldridge has been a volatile contributor off the Brooklyn bench, but he maximized his time Monday. Now 36 years old, Aldridge can't be relied on for critical production, but he currently ranks in the top 15 in player efficiency rating among all league qualifiers. He can warrant roster consideration in deep leagues and is streamable in plus matchups.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Vintage performance in win

    Aldridge recorded 21 points (10-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds, a steal and a block across 28 minutes off the bench in Friday's win over the Pacers.

    Aldridge has been very inconsistent this season, missing one game due to rest, putting up three single-digit scoring efforts and delivering two performances of at least 20 points. The veteran big man is not likely to put up these scoring numbers on a regular basis, though, and while fantasy managers can expect him to have strong performances from time to time, he's more likely to keep his scoring figures in the mid-to-low teens.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Will rest Monday

    Aldridge (rest) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Wizards, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Aldridge will rest the second game of the Nets' back-to-back, but he should be available for Wednesday's contest against the Heat. During his absence, Nicolas Claxton may see an uptick in minutes, but the Nets' second unit will likely have to play small, with Paul Millsap or Blake Griffin manning the center spot.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Grabs eight rebounds in loss

    Aldridge compiled nine points (4-7 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks and a steal across 22 minutes in Sunday's 111-95 loss to the Hornets.

    Nicolas Claxton drew the start under center, but Aldridge should see his fair share of time n the Nets' frontcourt. Blake Griffin had the night off, and while that should have positively affected Aldridge's usage, the absence had minimal effect. Depending on the opponent, the Nets will likely employ a larger frontcourt with Griffin and Aldridge instead of the small-ball approach they used in Sunday's defeat.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Scores 23 points

    Aldridge recorded 23 points (10-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and two blocks during a 114-109 win Friday at Philadelphia.

    Though the Nets have superstars Kevin Durant and James Harden, they benefit from having someone like Aldridge (who is less threatening but capable) playing alongside them. He made seven of his 10 field goals partly thanks to assists by both players. Aldridge's most recent statistical output reinforces the notion that he will be serviceable when healthy.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Coming off bench in opener

    Aldridge will come off the bench for Wednesday's season opener against the Bucks, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Nicolas Claxton will get the nod for his second career start. Aldridge should still see minutes in the low-20s.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Won't play Monday

    Aldridge (rest) has been ruled out for Monday's preseason game at Philadelphia, Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News reports.

    It appears to be a veteran rest day for Aldrige, who will take a seat for Monday's exhibition. Nicolas Claxton (illness) is also unavailable, leaving Paul Millsap, Blake Griffin and Day'Ron Sharpe to handle the work at center for Brooklyn.
