Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Scores 21 in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aminu scored 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 119-102 loss to the Pelicans in Game 3.

With Damian Lillard being held in check by the New Orleans defense, other Portland players have had to step up -- and Aminu's been the biggest beneficiary, averaging 14.0 points, 10.0 boards and 2.7 three-pointers through three games. The Blazers will be desperate to avoid getting swept Saturday in Game 4, but if Aminu is once again among the team's scoring leaders, it likely spells bad news.

Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Steps up with double-double in Game 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aminu churned out 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), 15 rebounds and one assist across 36 minutes during Portland's 111-102 loss to the Pelicans in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

With frontcourt mate Jusuf Nurkic exiting the game in the third quarter with a leg injury, Aminu stepped up his contributions on both the offensive end and the glass. The result was the veteran big man's best point total since April 1, and his most robust rebound haul since he'd also tallied 15 against the Hornets back on Feb. 4. Aminu's offensive usage would figure to be elevated once again if Nurkic is forced to miss Thursday's critical Game 3.

Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Goes for seven and seven in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aminu registered seven points (3-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes in Portland's 97-95 loss to the Pelicans in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Aminu didn't get too involved on the offensive end, as Evan Turner took on the mantle of complementary scoring source with a surprising 15 shot attempts on night. However, he did generate his typically solid work on the glass, bringing down at least seven rebounds for the fifth straight game when factoring in the last four regular-season contests. Aminu is certainly capable of offering more on the scoreboard when called upon, and his contributions on that end of the floor are likely to come into play at some point during the series.

Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Modest offensive usage in season-ending win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aminu compiled five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), nine rebounds, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in a 102-93 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Aminu wasn't needed much on the offensive end on a night when teammates Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic combined for 59 shot attempts between them. The steadiest aspect of the veteran forward's game has been his rebounding, and accordingly, he wrapped up the regular season with his best tally (7.6) in that category since the 2012-13 campaign. Aminu will continue to be relied on for solid work on the glass during the postseason, as well as the occasional double-digit scoring effort in support of the aforementioned Big Three.

Trail Blazers' Al-Farouq Aminu: Strong contributions on glass Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aminu supplied seven points (3-13 FG, 1-8 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 34 minutes in an 88-82 loss to the Nuggets on Monday.

The Nuggets made life tough on offense for the Blazers as a whole, and Aminu's ragged shooting night was just one of the byproducts of their suffocating defense. However, as usual, the veteran forward helped make up for it with stellar production on the boards, turning in his second 10-rebound game of April. Aminu's scoring totals continue to fluctuate, unsurprising given that he shares the floor with the high-usage trio of Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic. However, his steady work on the glass has helped keep him in the starting five throughout the season, and his strong presence down low should play a pivotal part in the Blazers' postseason journey.
