Top LaMarcus Aldridge News

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Quality numbers in starting role

    Aldridge posted 18 points (7-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds and one block in 33 minutes Wednesday in the Nets' 124-118 loss to the Nuggets.

    For the first time since returning in mid-January from a five-game absence due to foot soreness, Aldridge entered the starting five. He received the appointment to the top unit due to Nicolas Claxton (rest) and Day'Ron Sharpe (illness) being sidelined, but Aldridge will likely come off the bench Saturday at Golden State in the likely event that both of the younger centers are available. Expect Aldridge to stick in a 20-to-25-minute role when Brooklyn is at full strength in the frontcourt, rendering the 36-year-old more of a low-end option in 12-team leagues.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Starting Wednesday

    Aldridge is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.

    With Nicolas Claxton (rest) and Day'Ron Sharpe (illness) sidelined, Aldridge is set to make his first start since Jan. 1. The veteran is averaging 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in 22.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Catches fire off bench

    Aldridge racked up 27 points (11-15 FG, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 119-118 victory over the Wizards.

    Aldridge's 27 points marked a season high as well as his first time exceeding 20 points since mid-November. Nonetheless, he has been extremely reliable for Brooklyn. Per 36 minutes, Aldridge is averaging 20.9 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game. Factoring in a career-best 56.6 shooting percentage, an uptick in fantasy relevance sans Kevin Durant (knee) is possible.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Returns from five-game absence

    Aldridge provided 13 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 23 minutes during Monday's 114-107 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Making his first appearance since Jan. 7 due to a foot injury, Aldridge came off the bench as the Nets opted to roll with Day'Ron Sharpe (24 minutes) at center with Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) out. Both players split minutes evenly, however, and Aldridge salvaged a decent fantasy line with the steal and block. Whether he recaptures the starting job at some point or not, Aldridge's fantasy value is pretty limited at this point in his career.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Will come off bench

    Aldridge will come off the bench Monday against the Cavs, Billy Reinhardt of Nets Daily reports.

    After missing the last five games with a foot injury, Aldridge will be back in the mix, but even with Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) out, the Nets will bring the veteran off the bench. Steve Nash will continue to roll with Day'Ron Sharpe at center. He'll be joined by Kessler Edwards, Patty Mills, Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Brooklyn is, of course, without Kevin Durant (knee).

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Officially available Monday

    Aldridge (foot) is available for Monday's game against Cleveland.

    The 36-year-old missed the last five games due to right foot soreness but was probable ahead of Monday's contest. Since Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) is out, Aldridge could see additional playing time as long as he doesn't have any conditioning concerns.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Likely to play Monday

    Aldridge (foot) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    So long as he comes out of the Nets' morning shootaround no worse for the wear, Aldridge looks like he'll be able to put an end to his five-game absence due to right foot soreness. Meanwhile, Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) is listed as questionable, while all of Kevin Durant (knee), James Johnson (illness) and Paul Millsap (personal) are out for Monday's game, so Brooklyn finally finds itself thin in the frontcourt.

  • Nets' LaMarcus Aldridge: Likely out Thursday

    Coach Steve Nash said he doesn't expect Aldridge (foot) to play Thursday against the Thunder, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Aldridge sat out the past two games with right foot soreness and is unlikely to be available for the second half of the back-to-back set Thursday. Day'Ron Sharpe could receive another start at center versus Oklahoma City if Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) also remains out.
