Insight: Aldridge was 13-for-20 from the field and 5-of-6 at the line. He also had 11 rebounds and two assists. Aldridge has continued to play despite his torn thumb ligament, averaging 23.5 ppg and 8.5 rpg in the last five games. He needs to remain in lineups.
 
3/25/2015 9:06:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) will start Wednesday versus Utah.
Insight: Nicolas Batum will also return, but will come off the bench. Get Aldridge back into your lineups ASAP.
 
3/24/2015 10:42:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) has been downgraded to out for Tuesday's contest.
Insight: Nicolas Batum is also out with a sore back. Consider them both day-to-day for now.
 
3/23/2015 4:35:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) is doubtful for Tuesday's game.
Insight: Aldridge missed Monday's practice. The Blazers can't win in the playoffs without the big man, so for them losing a game in March is preferable to at playoff time. Fantasy owners won't agree. Meyers Leonard should see an increase in playing time, but has little fantasy value.
 
3/21/2015 9:58:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge left Saturday's game with a left hand injury.
Insight: He will not return, which is the same for Nicolas Batum who is dealing with lower back pain. Portland will finish up the night short-handed.

3/5/2015 9:22:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge didn't shoot very well, but when you take 30 shots you are going to put up numbers.
Insight: Aldridge hit just 12 of the 30 shots for 29 points and nine rebounds. Considering he has two bad thumbs, its a miracle he plays at this high a level.

Insight: He was 9-of-25 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line, with two assists and two turnovers as well. Aldridge is a borderline top-10 option in standard leagues.
 
2/22/2015 8:22:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge will not play on Sunday due to a right thumb sprain.
Insight: Aldridge is playing through ligament damage to his left thumb, but the sprain is in his other thumb, on his shooting hand. Aldridge was shooting during practice on Sunday, so hopefully he is sitting just as a precaution. Chris Kaman, Meyers Leonard and Dorell Wright will play more on Sunday without Aldridge.

Insight: Aldridge was 8-of-17 from the field and 8-for-8 at the line. He also had five rebounds, two blocks, two assists and two steals. Even with his injury, Aldridge is a must-start because of these types of nights.

Hot1/28/2015 9:29:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge scored 38 points but it wasn't enough versus the LeBron James-less Cavaliers.
Insight: That's because Kyrie Irving dropped 55 points, nailing 11 3-pointers. Aldridge may have been overshadowed, but he was stellar himself, going 13-of-23 with 11 rebounds. He also was 10-for-10 at the line.
 
Hot1/25/2015 9:13:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) went from expected to missd 6-8 weeks back to fantasy stud in a blink of an eye.
Insight: Aldridge decided to delay surgery on his left thumb for the good of the team and racked up a team-high 26 points on 9-for-22 shooting. He also hauled down nine rebounds and didn't seem to injury the thumb any further by playing. It appears it will be all about pain management and as long as he's out there he's a must-start.
 
1/24/2015 3:17:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) will play Saturday versus Washington.
Insight: This is an absolute shock, as he was expected to miss 6-8 weeks. However, Aldridge is delaying surgery on his left thumb, and will give it a go. Get him in into your lineups immediately.
 
1/22/2015 9:32:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks.
Insight: He will have surgery on his radial collateral ligament. This is detrimental news for owners. Dorrell Wright, Thomas Robinson, Meyers Leonard, and Chris Kaman should all benefit.
 
1/22/2015 1:55:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge has a cast on his thumb and is receiving another MRI Thursday according to The Sporting News.
Insight: Aldridge did not get a reading on his first MRI because of swelling, so he needs another one. The cast, however, cannot be great. It would be a huge surprise to see Aldridge in the lineup on Thursday.
 
1/20/2015 4:05:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge left Monday night's game with a left thumb injury and has already been ruled out for Wednesday.
Insight: X-rays were negative, but he will not go with the team to Phoenix, instead he'll see a hand specialist. This is a huge blow for fantasy owners who cann't replace his 23.2 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 1.9 apg, 1.2 bpg. Thomas Tobinson would see more time, but he hasn't shown much fantasy value to date.
