LaMarcus Aldridge played 36 minutes on Saturday for 18 points, two rebounds, a steal and a block.
Is this a new low in rebounds for Aldridge? If we have season highs, this matches his season-low of two rebounds (he only had two rebounds back in December against the TWolves). He has been getting more blocks in the last seven games but his dip in points and field goal percentage cancels those gains out. Aldridge has been a top-65 player over that time and it might be a sign of things to come for next year. With Kawhi Leonard’s usage rate going up, Aldridge’s is bound to go down. Avoid him early on but he’s got a top-70 floor and may still be worth a pick in the late 50s. If you do take him, make sure you are prepared for rest days.
