Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Double-double off bench
Aldama had 17 points (7-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes off the bench during Friday's 108-94 win over Dallas.
Only four Memphis players even scored in double digits on the night, and Aldama parlayed his efficient offense into his third double-double of the season. The third-year big has supplied more than 10 points in seven of the last eight contests, averaging 17.5 points, 7.1 boards, 2.4 assists, 2.1 threes and 0.8 blocks over that stretch as he moves into a significant role in the Grizzlies' depleted frontcourt....

Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Rejoining reserves
Aldama will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Despite averaging 17.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in his last four games with the starters, Aldama will come off the bench for Wednesday's tilt. Instead, the Grizzlies will start Derrick Rose, Desmond Bane, David Roddy, Jaren Jackson and Bismack Biyombo.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Continues to thrive as starter
Aldama provided 14 points (6-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes during Sunday's 119-97 loss to the Timberwolves.
Aldama has started in each of Memphis' last four games, and even though the team has lost all those contests, Aldama continues to find ways to make an impact while embracing a more significant role. He's averaging 17.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game when playing with the first unit, and that includes surpassing the 20-point mark twice in that span.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Puts up 21 points as starter
Aldama posted 21 points (9-20 FG, 3-10 3Pt) and five rebounds across 36 minutes during Friday's 110-89 loss to the Suns.
Aldama has been one of the few successful stories in a struggling Memphis team, and the Spaniard is finding ways to make an impact on offense while also overachieving even the most optimistic preseason predictions. Aldama has scored at least 20 points in three of his last five outings, and given the way he's been playing of late, he should remain a starter until further notice.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Goes off for 28 points
Aldama registered 28 points (11-27 FG, 6-15 3Pt), 12 rebounds, six assists and two steals across 39 minutes during Sunday's 102-100 loss to the Celtics.
An ankle injury delayed his start to the 2023-24 season, but Aldama is rolling now. The 28 points mark a new season high, and he's officially hot with averages of 23.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 3.3 three-pointers over the last three games. With Brandon Clarke (Achilles) and Steven Adams (knee) likely out for the year, Aldama has a clear path to consistent playing time, even if Xavier Tillman (knee) is cleared to return soon....

Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Delivers double-double in win
Aldama ended with 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes during Saturday's 120-108 victory over the Spurs.
Aldama has been excellent off the bench for the Grizzlies this season and continues to make an impact every time he steps on the court. His bench role means his upside will ultimately be tied to the minutes he sees, but it's worth noting he has scored in double digits every time he's logged more than 20 minutes.... See More ...

Grizzlies' Santi Aldama: Impresses off bench Tuesday
Aldama posted 24 points (9-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 25 minutes during Tuesday's 134-107 loss to the Lakers.
Aldama was one of several Memphis reserves that took advantage of extended minutes in a blowout loss, with the third-year player delivering his best line of the season. Memphis has seemed to settle on the tandem of Bismack Biyombo and Xavier Tillman as its primary options at center, making it difficult for Aldama to see his playing time push up into the 25-to-30-minute range in more competitive games in which starting power forward Jaren Jackson isn't dealing with foul trouble. With that in mind, Aldama doesn't seem likely to see his role expand dramatically, even though he's averaging a solid 11.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers and 0.8 blocks in 21.0 minutes per game through five appearances this season....
