Advice: Aminu, as he's wont to do, contributed on both ends of the floor as Portland managed to take care of Minnesota.

Advice: He had been on a total tear in his previous three, making 19-of-25 from the field (76%) for 17.3 points per game, but it was obviously not sustainable. Aminu's hot streak valued him to top-75 status, but he'll likely trend down and be more of a top-125 kind of player in standard leagues. That's still fine for most owners in 12-team formats.
