Adrian Benjamins and Neil Rochlani break down the nine games from Sunday. Aldridge and the Spurs continue to play well at home as they take down the Bucks. Joel Embiid is back and looks great…

LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled on Monday with 23 points and 13 rebounds while adding three assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Aldridge attempted as many 3-pointers tonight as his last four games combined in an effort to keep the Warriors' defense honest. The Spurs are riding a nine-game winning streak and Aldridge has been a top-10 player during that span, averaging 23.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 blocks on .554 shooting.

LaMarcus Aldridge had a quiet night against the Blazers, wrapping up his Saturday with 12 points, eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocks.
Not one for the #RevengeGame truthers, but the defensive stats make this a solid outing for fantasy purposes even if it's not what LMA is known for. He'll be fine going forward. In a similar vein, Derrick White posted 13 points, two rebounds and three assists while shooting 5-of-7 from the field but was limited to 26 minutes because of foul trouble.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds with no other stats in an easy win over the Knicks on Friday.
It was a blowout win and there was little need for Aldridge to do much more. He should post a more diverse stat line in the next one so keep him slotted in as normal.

LaMarcus Aldridge dropped 28 points on 11-of-19 field goals and sank all six of his freebies in 38 minutes on Tuesday against the Mavs.
He added seven rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block tonight, too. LMA has been putting up second-round value for a couple months, and is one of the most reliable big men around.
March 10, 2019, 10:27 pmLaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge had his way against the Bucks on Sunday as he recorded 29 points on 14-of-26 shooting with 15 rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes.
LMA is solid and is now actually finishing strong. He's averaging 26.8 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.4 blocks per game over his last five. He may be boring from a fantasy point of view but at least what you see it what you get.
March 7, 2019, 12:04 amLaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge toyed with the Hawks on Wednesday night, going 11-of-16 from the field and 9-of-11 from the free throw line to notch 32 points with nine rebounds, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Aldridge predictably had a field day in this matchup and he's clocking in with top-30 value this season. It looked like he was heading into decline a couple years back but both he and the Spurs deserve tons of credits for sorting out their issues and getting everything back on track. Expect early-round numbers the rest of the way.

LaMarcus Aldridge attacked the Nuggets' frontcourt on Monday and chipped in 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting with nine rebounds, one triple and two assists.
It's was unfortunate that Aldridge did not record any defensive stats tonight, which dampened his fantasy impact. He's boring, yes, but he's still got mid-round value moving forward. So just let him trudge his way to a win for your fantasy teams.
March 2, 2019, 11:15 pmLaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus scored a game-high 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting in a 116-102 win over the Thunder on Saturday while also adding 10 rebounds, a perfect 7-of-7 shooting from the line, one assist, one steal and one block.
Aldridge may not be an exciting player to own in fantasy (was he ever?) but you cannot deny that he's money when it comes to points, boards, shooting efficiency and low turnovers (zero tonight). He's a strong mid-to-early-round play (depending on the night) as the season winds to a close.
February 28, 2019, 12:03 amLaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge put up 24 points on 11-of-22 shooting in a team-high 39 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.
He led the team in scoring in this one and added five rebounds, three assists and two blocks to the box score. Although he has slightly dipped over the past month, he is still retaining top-30 value for the season and has been the man to own in San Antonio.
February 25, 2019, 10:24 pmLaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs in scoring on Monday with 26 points on 12-of-21 shooting with 10 rebounds, an assist and three blocks.
Aldridge took advantage of a soft interior defense and made sure to take the majority of his shots inside the paint. He attempted all but two shots within 12 feet of the basket which has been the theme of his season so far. It's helped boost his efficiency as he's a .509 shooter from the floor this season which is good for nearly top-30 value.
