Ajinca has mostly been out of the rotation this postseason, playing just four minutes in each game.

Ajinca played big minutes at times for the Pelicans during the regular season, but hasn't been afforded the opportunity thus far in the series against the Warriors. He has the potential to make noise in extended run however, scoring six points in Game 1 despite the limited court time.

Ajinca had 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 FT) and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes as a starter for Omer Asik (calf) in the Sunday loss to the Clippers.

Ajinca has been productive on the West Coast road trip. In three games, he has averaged 12.0 points and 8.3 rebounds. If Asik remains out, Ajinca remains a decent play in deeper leagues.

Ajinca posted 15 points, eight rebounds, one assist, and one block in 19 minutes of action Friday against the Warriors.

Ajinca got the start for the injured Anthony Davis and managed to produce. This shouldn't be a surprise, as Ajinca has done well as a filler option for Davis over the past month. Still, any sort of value will be short-lived, as Davis isn't expected out for too long.

Ajinca scored 17 points (7-14 FG) to go with five rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

It was an encouraging performance from the big man, but he's been inconsistent of late, with his previous three stat lines failing to generate much value, from a fantasy perspective. That said, he's proven capable of having big nights, it's just a matter of predicting when those will come.

Ajinca saw his minutes shrink in Friday's loss to the Celtics, only scoring four points (2-2 FG) and picking up four rebounds, one assist and a block in 10 minutes.

This was the first time in six games that Ajinca was held to single-digit points, and was the first time in that same span that he played less than 19 minutes in a game.

Ajinca had 10 points and 11 rebounds in 23 minutes Wednesday against Detroit.

Ajinca's production Wednesday remained in line with his recent numbers despite Anthony Davis' return to the lineup. He now has two consecutive double-doubles and is averaging 13.4 points and 8.2 rebounds over his last five.

Ajinca scored 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT) with 12 rebounds, a steal and a block in 25 minutes off the bench Monday.

In five games since Anthony Davis (shoulder) hit the shelf, Ajinca is averaging 14.6 points, 7.8 boards and 1.6 blocks, numbers worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues. Don't hesitate to cut him loose once Davis returns, however.

Ajinca scored a season-high 24 points (9-10 FG, 6-8 FT) and grabbed eight rebounds in only 22 minutes of action Friday in a win over the Heat.

Ajinca has now scored double-digit points in three straight games. However, when Anthony Davis is healthy, Ajinca is immediately going to return the bench, so it's worth leaving him out there for a while on the waiver wire, but he might be worth a flier in some daily formats.

Ajinca scored 16 points (8-12 FG) to go along with nine rebounds, two assists, one block and five turnovers in 27 minutes Monday against the Raptors.

Although Ajinca didn't start Monday, he played significant minutes off of the bench and produced. As long as Anthony Davis (shoulder) continues to be sidelined, Ajinca should see increased fantasy value.

Ajinca returned to the bench Friday against the Magic. He scored two points (1-3 FG) and added one rebound, one assist, and one block in 10 minutes.Though Ajinca has considerable value whenever Anthony Davis or Omer Asik miss a game, he has a hard time making an impact when they are both available.
