Daily Fantasy: Aminu looks good tonight!

Consider Al-Farouq Aminu tonight against the Bulls in daily fantasy. Al-Farouq Aminu has been averaging 12.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game this season. He is a solid daily fantasy play tonight against the Chicago Bulls. Aminu will likely see a lot of playing time as Portland's most competent perimeter defender. He will be needed to help cover Jimmy Butler in standard lineups and can also stick with Nikola Mirotic if Terry Stotts decides to go small. Further, the Bulls have not been a great rebounding team this season and Portland has looked good in transition over the last...

The life of a professional athlete includes endless positive and negative analysis from media and fans. Blazers beat writer Casey Holdahl takes a look at how small forward Al-Farouq Aminu handles the constant scrutiny, as the sixth-year veteran attempts to leave basketball on the court and focus on his family off of it. "I want to be able to separate the two and be home and they just see me as Al-Farouq and when I'm (in the gym), I'm Chief. Two different things. To be able to not bring all...

The sixth-year forward is presently the only other Blazer to average double-digit scoring. His 13.7 points per game is far and away a career-high – more than double his offensive production with the Dallas Mavericks last season (5.6 ppg). Mike Richman of The...
