News: Ginobili went for 27 points (9-12 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 4-7 FT) in 23 minutes against the Mavericks in Wednesday's Game 2 playoff loss.
Impact: Ginobili was simply on fire, hitting shots from near and far in a vintage performance off the Spurs' bench. While the Argentine easily led his team in scoring, committing six turnovers proved costly. Nonetheless, Ginobili figures to enter Game 3 fully confident from Wednesday's offensive outburst.
Wed. Apr 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan (knee) is feeling "just fine," for Wednesday's Game 2, NBA.com reports.
Impact: Duncan briefly left Sunday's Game 1 after banging knees with Dallas' Monta Ellis, but it appears no serious injury occurred. Expect Duncan to start Game 2 and handle is normal workload.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ginobili's wife gave birth to their third child Monday, but he is still expected to be at practice Monday afternoon, which means he's unlikely to miss any games, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Ginobili tweeted that his wife and child are happy and healthy, so it seems the timing of the birth is going to make it possible for him to avoid missing any time.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parker's fiance is due to give birth sometime in the next few weeks, and depending on the timing of the birth, it's possible that he may miss a game at some point, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Both Manu Ginobili and Parker have a child on the way, with Ginobili's possibly coming as soon as Monday. While there's no specific mention in the story about whether or not either of them have said they would miss a game, that's often left to the player's discretion in these situations.
Apr 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan took a brief visit to the Spurs' locker room after bumping knees with Mavericks guard Monta Ellis during the third quarter of Sunday's playoff opener, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Duncan limped away from the scene and took a quick trip to the locker room after spending a few minutes stretching his knee on the bench. By all indications, Duncan appears to be fine and he was able to re-enter the game, but following a hyper-extension in the same knee earlier this month, it's a situation worth taking note of.
Apr 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ginobili had a bench-high 17 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with six boards, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' Game 1 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: Along with Time Duncan and Tony Parker, Ginobili was one of three Spurs to approach or exceed 20 points. It seems like Ginobili will be heard from often in the playoffs, but there will likely be the occasional game where someone like Danny Green or Marco Belinelli steps up to offer the scoring from the shooting guard position.
Apr 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green was held scoreless in 24 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' Game 1 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: He was useful elsewhere, chipping in five boards, one assist, two steals and two blocks, but missed the only two shots he attempted. Manu Ginobili was a much more effective option off the bench, but the nature of the Spurs is to expect the unexpected, in terms of production from the role players.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mills scored nine points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt) in 14 minutes Wednesday versus the Lakers.
Impact: Mills was rested for Monday's game, but returned in a limited capacity two nights later against Los Angeles. As usual, the point guard was aggressive offensively, hoisting nine shots in 14 minutes of action.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ginobili scored 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt) to go with five assists in 23 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday night.
Impact: Ginobili played in both of San Antonio's games this week, so he appears primed for his classic sixth man role during the Spurs' playoff run. The 36-year-old marginally improved his scoring average from a season ago, while maintaining his career total of four assists per game.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parker (back) played just 16 minutes Wednesday against the Lakers and finished the game with 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists.
Impact: Parker featured in an abbreviated role Wednesday as he tunes up for the playoffs. After recently returning from his back injury, Parker appears to be fine from a health perspective entering the postseason, as his 12 points in 16 minutes might suggest.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Splitter recorded 12 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and eight rebounds in 26 minutes Wednesday versus the Lakers.
Impact: Splitter, who was handed the night off Monday, reclaimed the Spurs' starting center position Wednesday. The Brazilian came close to a double-double and led all players with four offensive rebounds.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leonard played 24 minutes Wednesday, posting 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five rebounds, and four assists versus the Lakers.
Impact: Leonard was rested for Monday's game, but returned to the Spurs' lineup for their regular season finale. The small forward led his team in scoring and his two swats were also a San Antonio best in blocks.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baynes will get the start at power forward with Tim Duncan resting, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Baynes enters the starting lineup alongside Tiago Splitter and Kawhi Leonard in the frontcourt. In Monday's loss to Houston, Baynes exploded for six points, three rebounds and five fouls in 22 minutes.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Belinelli (rest) will not play in Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers, Project Spurs reports.
Impact: It's simply a day off for Belinelli, who will conclude the season averaging 11.4 points on a career-high 48.5 percent shooting. The Italian also shot a career-best 43.0 percent from beyond the arc.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Lakers, Project Spurs reports.
Impact: To no one's surprise, the veteran will be held out of the lineup for Wednesday's season finale with the Spurs holding a four-game lead over Oklahoma City for the top seed in the West. Boris Diaw or Jeff Ayres figure to get the start in his place. Duncan will end his 17th NBA season with averages of 15.1 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 29.2 minutes.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Leonard returned Wednesday from dealing with a sore hand.
Impact: He's ready for the postseason.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parker spent the end of Monday's game icing his back, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said there is no new injury and nothing to worry about, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The Spurs have already clinched the NBA's best record, but coach Gregg Popovich played Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan on Monday, and afterward hinted that he may play them again in Wednesday's regular season finale against the Lakers. Even if the back is nothing, it's best to consider Parker questionable for Wednesday, as has been the case for much of the season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: James scored six points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes Monday at Houston.
Impact: With a few of San Antonio's regulars resting, James got his first start as a member of the Spurs. If you decided to rent him for the day, you couldn't have been too disappointed, as his nine rebounds were the second most he's ever recorded in a game.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baynes scored six points (3-6 FG) and grabbed three rebounds in a season-high 22 minutes Monday at Houston.
Impact: Baynes failed to make a significant impact in just his third start of the season. There probably weren't many owners affected by this poor performance given his track record, but in case you were thinking of picking up the big man, let this game serve as a warning.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Belinelli scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), while adding four assists and two rebounds and 33 minutes Monday in Houston.
Impact: Belinelli got the starting nod and played his most minutes in nearly two months. If you're going to take a flier on any of the Spurs' bench players, it should be the veteran guard. With San Antonio's tendency to rest their starters leading up to the postseason, Belinelli could see similar minutes in the Spurs' final game on Wednesday.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan (knee) scored 12 points (4-10 FG, 4-4 FT) to go along with nine rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes Monday at Houston.
Impact: After sitting out Saturday's contest in what now looks like a precautionary move, Duncan was back in the starting lineup Monday. While he didn't produce his normal output, the big man got a nice tuneup before the playoffs begin this weekend.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Belinelli will get the start at shooting guard Monday at Houston.
Impact: Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills are all getting the night off to rest, making Belinelli a pretty enticing option in daily leagues.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan will start at power forward Monday in Houston.
Impact: A lot of the Spurs are taking the night off to rest, although Duncan of all people is still getting the nod, making him a solid option in most formats.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: James will start at small forward Monday at Houston.
Impact: Kawhi Leonard will get the night off to rest Monday, so James is a cheap, high-risk option for daily leaguers, as he's relatively unproven.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baynes will start at center Monday in Houston.
Impact: Tiago Splitter is being held out to rest, but Baynes has proven this season that he's not necessarily a good start in daily leagues, even when he starts.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leonard (rest) won't play Monday at Houston.
Impact: The Spurs are sitting several of their regulars, Leonard among them. Damion James will start at small forward but isn't necessarily a great start for daily leaguers, as he's a pretty volatile and unproven option.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Splitter (rest) won't play Monday in Houston.
Impact: Damion James and Aron Baynes will start in the frontcourt with Tim Duncan, as the Spurs are resting several players, including Splitter, who should be out of fantasy lineups Monday.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mills (rest) won't play Monday in Houston.
Impact: The Spurs are resting several players Monday, with Tony Parker and Marco Belinelli starting in the backcourt. Make sure Mills is out of the lineup.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green (rest) won't play Monday at Houston.
Impact: Marco Belinelli, who will start at the two Monday, makes for a solid fantasy option in Green's absence.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ayres has averaged 3.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists this season with the Spurs.
Impact: Even with the Spurs' extensive rotation, Ayres only manages to play 12.8 minutes per game. This doesn't allow much time for production and it also doesn't help that he's behind Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw on the depth chart.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baynes (ribs) returned from a six-game absence Friday to play four minutes off the bench.
Impact: Baynes has a very minimal role in the Spurs' lineup but may be given more minutes now that San Antonio has clinched the best overall record in the NBA. However, it would be surprising, if he was given enough time on the court to produce relevant numbers.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Green had a career-high 33 points and the San Antonio Spurs rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns 112-104 on Friday and clinch home-court throughout the playoffs.
Impact: Green was 7 for 10 on 3-pointers in pushing San Antonio (62-18) to victory without Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, who both sat out the second game of a back-to-back for rest.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parker (back) returned to the starting lineup Friday against the Suns, scoring 18 points (9-18 FG) and distributing three assists in 24 minutes.
Impact: If one owns Parker in a standard league, and he's playing, he should probably be starting. This season has been relatively disappointing for the aging star, but he remains an effective scorer and efficient shooter capable of quality assist numbers.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Daye started Friday against the Suns in place of Tim Duncan (knee), playing 15 minutes and scoring two points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt) while adding one rebound, one assist, one block, and two steals.
Impact: This was the second night of a back-to-back set for the Spurs, and so Duncan's night off appears more cautionary than anything else. Between Duncan's likely return and Daye's ineffectiveness, Daye can probably remain a fantasy afterthought in most formats.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Tim Duncan and Ginobili will both sit out Friday in the second game of a back-to-back for rest.
Impact: Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Ginobili added 10 points and seven assists in the Spurs' 109-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Duncan and Manu Ginobili will both sit out Friday in the second game of a back-to-back for rest.
Impact: Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Ginobili added 10 points and seven assists in the Spurs' 109-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mills will revert back to a bench role Friday against the Suns, with Tony Parker (back) returning to the starting lineup.
Impact: Mills, who started Thursday and played 36 minutes, will be replaced in the starting five by Parker in his return from a back injury. Thus, Mills should see his minutes restricted but has shown the ability to score in bunches, even in limited minutes.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Daye will start Friday versus the Suns, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Daye is getting the nod at power forward in place of Tim Duncan (knee). With Duncan resting, Daye will match up with Channing Frye, with Boris Diaw playing off the bench like normal.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bonner will miss Friday's game with food poisoning, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Because Bonner recently missed two weeks due to a calf injury, his absence shouldn't be too hard to deal with, although having Tim Duncan (knee) out as well will leave them a bit thin in the frontcourt. Bonner doesn't have much value in any league and hasn't played a significant role with the Spurs this season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ginobili (rest) won't play Friday, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Ginobili will sit out Friday's game against the Suns, presumably to prepare for the playoffs, as the Spurs have all but locked up the No. 1 seed in the West. He'll join Duncan in watching the game from the bench Friday, and it's possible Ginobili may sit out more games as the regular season draws to a close.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan (knee) won't play Friday, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Duncan hyperextended his knee early in Thursday's game, before returning to the court, but won't play Friday against the Suns. The Spurs need just one win or a Thunder loss to clinch the No. 1 seed in the West, so it's likely the Spurs will rest players such as Duncan over the last couple games to keep them healthy and rested for the playoffs.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parker (back) will play Friday versus the Suns, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Parker has been out since Sunday with back spasms but will return to the court, as the Spurs look to clinch the No. 1 seed in the West with a win over the Suns on Friday.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan (knee) is questionable to play in Friday's game against the Suns, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Duncan hyperextended his knee during Thursday's game against Dallas but was able to play through the pain. It was questionable whether he'd play in Friday's game even if healthy, so his status seems dim at this point.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Leonard finished with 16 points and a career-high 16 rebounds in a 109-100 win in Dallas on Thursday.
Impact: Leonard has averaged 17.7 points on 59.5 percent shooting in his last three games.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Mills started in place of Tony Parker, finishing with 26 points and hitting six 3-pointers in a 109-100 win in Dallas on Thursday.
Impact: Mills has totaled 46 points while making 8 of 18 from beyond the arc in two starts this season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds in Thursday's 109-100 win in Dallas.
Impact: It was Duncan's first double-double since March 26. He could be held out a game or two down the stretch to rest for the playoffs.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leonard recorded 16 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 16 rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 37 minutes Thursday at Dallas.
Impact: Leonard's 16 rebounds tied a career-high and were the most he's grabbed all season. Although he struggled from the field, his rebounds, including six on the offensive glass, helped make up for his percentages, and he should return to his normal efficient shooting Friday against the Suns. Along with some of the other Spurs players, keep an eye out for Leonard possibly seeing reduced minutes or even sitting out games, as the regular season draws to a close and the Spurs close in on the No. 1 seed in the West.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan (knee) recorded 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-9 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 39 minutes Thursday in Dallas.
Impact: Despite hyperextending his knee, Duncan finished with his second-highest minutes total of the season, posting a huge double-double to help lead the Spurs past the Mavericks and to within one win of clinching the first seed in the Western Conference playoffs. If they do clinch the No. 1 seed, it's likely that Duncan and some other Spurs starters may be rested in the remaining regular season games to prepare for the postseason.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mills recorded 26 points (9-25 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 36 minutes Thursday.
Impact: Starting in place of Tony Parker, Mills played 36 minutes and scored 26 points on 25 shots in a win against the Mavericks. This was his second game of 20-plus points in his past four games, despite struggling from the field, and while his production is up-and-down along with his minutes, he can really pile on the points when he's hot.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Duncan hyperextended his right knee in Thursday's game against the Mavericks but was able to return, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Owners can be relieved that Duncan was able to return to the game only minutes after he went down. The Spurs are contending for a championship this season, so there's a good chance he'll be rested for many of the final games to close the regular season. Still, he's a fine fantasy producer when he's on the court. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Joseph will return to the bench Thursday in Dallas, Project Spurs reports.
Impact: Patty Mills will replace Joseph in the starting lineup, and it appears Joseph's fantasy value will be nonexistent in most formats. Joseph is averaging just 5.6 points over the last five games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mills will start Thursday in place of Cory Joseph, Project Spurs reports.
Impact: The change in the starting lineup was a game-time decision, and it appears Mills may get more minutes Thursday. Look for him to contribute solid minutes.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ginobili (calf) isn't a part of the injury report for Thursday's tilt in Dallas, Project Spurs reports.
Impact: Ginobili was limited to 14 minutes in Tuesday's game due to a left calf contusion, but considering his lack of presence on the aforementioned report, his removal appears to be more precautionary than anything. Expect him to approach his typical workload of 22.7 minutes per contest on Thursday evening.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Manu Ginobili left in the third quarter of Tuesday's game versus Minnesota with a left calf contusion.
Impact: The injury is not believed to be serious, but San Antonio will likely rest the veteran guard for precautionary reasons.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Parker will play Friday night against the Phoenix Suns after missing the previous two games with a back injury.
Impact: Parker leads the team in both scoring (16.8 points) and minutes played (29.7) this season.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Manu Ginobili had a 26 points and San Antonio eased to a 112-92 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday after losing Tony Parker to injury.
Impact: Ginobili, who sat out the team's game on Thursday versus Oklahoma City in order to rest, was 8 for 11 from the field and 4 of 6 from 3-point range.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Kawhi Leonard matched his career high with 26 points, helping San Antonio to a 112-92 win.
Impact: With Tony Parker injured, Leonard took over offensively, showing off his expanding offensive game with a series of driving layups, pull-up jumpers and going 2 for 2 on 3-pointers. The 6-foot-7, third-year forward was 12 for 13 from the field.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker was forced to leave with back spasms late in the first quarter against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night.
Impact: Parker has missed 10 games this season, including San Antonio's game Feb. 6 at Brooklyn with tightness in his lower back. He has had various leg injuries this season, but also sat out seven games for what was listed as ''rest.''
