LaMarcus Aldridge (Knee) Questionable Wednesday vs. Lakers
December 30Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
Aldridge was added to the injury report for the Spurs’ matchup vs. the Lakers with a sore left knee and is officially listed as questionable. Aldridge has taken on a more supporting role with the Spurs this season, averaging just 26.0 minutes per game through his first three contests. That said, he’s still been able to provide some fantasy value, scoring at least 26.1 FanDuel points in his first two games of the season.
If Aldridge is out, expect Jakob Poeltl to draw the start at center. He was excellent in place of Aldridge last season, averaging 0.98 FanDuel points per minute in six games with Aldridge out of the lineup. That would make him a solid value at just $4,200 on FanDuel.
DeMar DeRozan and Dejounte Murray also figure to see boosts in value if Aldridge is ruled out. DeRozan has increased his usage rate by +7.2% with Aldridge off the court this season, resulting in an average of 1.66 FanDuel points per minute. Murray has seen a usage bump of +5.1%, and he’s averaged 1.43 FanDuel points per minute in that situation.
