Al-Farouq Aminu provides a rare boost


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu ended a long double-digit scoring drought Wednesday against the Raptors, as he stepped up in Anthony Davis' absence.

Aminu played 33 minutes despite coming off the bench, and recorded his best scoring total of the season with 19 points on 7 of 8 shooting. He also picked up his fifth double-double of the season, snatching 10 rebounds, while adding one block and two turnovers in a 107-100 loss.

Aminu had gone 10 games without scoring in double figures before Wednesday, and is still averaging 7.7 points per game in the month of March. The fourth-year pro is averaging 7.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game for the season.  


Al-Farouq Aminu eaches double figures


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu put up a solid performance Tuesday against the Cavaliers, scoring 12 points in a 100-89 win.

Aminu shot 6 of 10 in 29 minutes of action en route to his best scoring performance in five games. He added just three rebounds and one assists in the game, both of which come in below his averages for the month.

Aminu is averaging just 7.2 points per game in the month of January, but has scored in double-figures in four of his last nine games. He is also adding 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 15 games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu scored 15 points on 6 of 9 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds in his team's 110-107 loss to the Mavericks Saturday.

It was the third double-double of the season for Aminu, who also tallied two assists in 36 minutes Saturday. He has averaged 7.2 points and 6.7 rebounds over 35 games played.


Al-Farouq Aminu posts 16-21 line vs. Mavericks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu set season highs in points and rebounds Wednesday by scoring 16 poins on 8 of 17 shooting and hauling in 21 rebounds in his team's 100-97 loss to the Mavericks.

Aminu was coming off a then-season-high 14 points in Monday's triple-overtime win, and his 21 rebounds bests his previous season high by 12. He has averaged 6.1 points and 6.4 rebounds this season.


Al-Farouq Aminu hauls in eight rebounds in loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu grabbed a season-best eight rebounds and scored eight points on 3 of 6 shooting while playing 26 minutes in his team's 101-94 loss to the Suns Sunday.

Aminu hasn't been able to crack the double-digit mark on the scoreboard this year but does have six rebounds or more in four of his last five games.


Al-Farouq Aminu doing little with starts


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu is playing a limited role early in the season, averaging just 20 minutes per game after the team's second game Friday. He played just 17 minutes in a start Friday, a 110-90 loss to the Magic.

Aminu scored four points on 2 of 4 shooting, while adding three rebounds and three assists.  


Al-Farouq Aminu to see more minutes


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Wednesday that forward Al-Farouq Aminu could see more minutes at power forward with Ryan Anderson out injured, the team's official site reports. 

Aminu is one of the better rebounding small forwards in the NBA and the Pelicans will ask him to play a bigger role with Anderson out. That said, Aminu is also an offensive liability. 


Pelicans bring back Aminu


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2013) Free agent forward Al-Farouq Aminu has agreed to a 1-year extension with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to The Associated Press. Aminu, 22, started 71 games last year with New Orleans, averaging career highs of 7.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Aminu heads to the market


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2013) Hornets forward Al-Farouq Aminu so thoroughly disappointed through the first three years of his rookie contract, the team opted not to pick up his option for next season. That leaves him as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, coming off his most successful season to date. Aminu transformed himself into an elite rebounder from the small forward position, bringing in 7.7 points per game to go with 7.3 points per game. Both of those numbers represented the best marks of his career, along with a career-high 27.2 minutes per game.
