Al-Farouq Aminu    F  Trail Blazers

 

 

Al-Farouq Aminu finished Wednesday's game with nine points on 3-of-4 shooting, 11 rebounds, three steals and two assists, and he iced the Blazers' victory with a pair of clutch free throws. Aminu was averaging 7.8 points on 31.1% shooting in his previous five games, so it was nice to see him knock down some shots tonight. He still returned roto value in 12-team leagues in that five-game span, however, thanks to 1.6 triples, 9.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.4 blocks and a mere 0.6 turnovers. He's nowhere near as appealing in points-based leagues, of course.

Al-Farouq Aminu went for just five points over 24 minutes in Friday's 118-100 victory in Sacramento. Aminu hit just 2-of-6 from the field and 1-of-4 from behind the 3-point line while adding five rebounds with two steals and no turnovers. That's three consecutive single-digit point totals, and five games in the past six outings with 10 or fewer points. His shot is just not falling right now and his fantasy appeal is limited to deeper leagues at this moment.

Al-Farouq Aminu brought down a team-high 15 rebounds during Thursday's overtime win over the Hornets, adding six points, two assists, three steals and one turnover in 36 minutes. Aminu went 2-of-7 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe, more or less making this your prototypical Aminu line. He won't do much for you in the scoring department, and his shooting percentages often aren't pretty, but he can chip in enough triples, boards, dimes and steals to preserve his late-round value. He is what he is.

Al-Farouq Aminu finished with just five points and nine rebounds over 30 minutes in Friday's 130-105 loss at Toronto. Aminu attempted and made just one shot from the field, a 3-pointer, and he didn't have any other defensive stats. Foul trouble wasn't the issue, as he didn't have one personal. He wasn't needed, as Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic were the offensive heroes, going for 20 or more points each. Aminu is averaging just 7.8 points per game over his past four outings, hitting double digits just once.

Aminu posted 11 points (4-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 104-96 win over the Clippers. Aminu recorded only his fourth double-double of the season, but just barely. He shot only 30.7 percent from the floor, a full 11 percent below his normal average. Aminu does have a talent for putting together decent stat lines to qualify as Portland's fourth-best producer, though he does lack consistency and can't be depended on like some of the other Trail Blazers in the starting five.

Al-Farouq Aminu hit 5-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 14 points, nine rebounds and a block in 28 minutes of Tuesday's easy 118-111 win over the Suns. The Suns had a big fourth quarter (39-26) but still lost by seven, while Aminu bounced back after a quiet game on Sunday, when he had just six points, seven rebounds, a block and zero 3-pointers. Aminu is bouncing around on a lot of waiver wires, but he's quietly averaging 11 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games. He's hit at least one 3-pointer in eight of his nine January games and if you need a big man who can steal and hit 3-pointers, Aminu seems to be coming on after a rather quiet second half of December.

Al-Farouq Aminu struggled in 21 minutes on Sunday, going 3-of-7 from the field for six points, seven rebounds, one assist and one block. Aminu came in averaging 33.0 minutes per game but was the victim of a slow start for Portland -- trailing by 14 points at halftime, coach Terry Stotts wasn't shy about mixing up his rotations in the second half. His shot still isn't falling (42.1 percent in January) but Aminu chips in enough elsewhere to be worth holding in most formats.

Al-Farouq Aminu finished with 19 points, 11 rebounds and three steals over 35 minutes in Friday's 119-113 loss at New Orleans. Aminu hit 7-of-16 from the floor, including 3-of-9 from behind the arc, and he finished with a team-best plus-16 rating. In fact, he was the only Blazers player in double digits in the category. This was a nice game, but he has posted some pretty awful stat lines lately, too. In fact, he has yet to post back-to-back double-digit scoring totals so far through seven games in January. He is a bit erratic in terms of fantasy production, but remains a decent add in category leagues, especially 9-cat.
