Davis Bertans returned to action on Thursday December 13.

Dec 14 - 3:15 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge made 12-of-14 from the field for 27 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes during a 125-87 win over the Clippers on Thursday.

It's the first time he's made a 3-pointer this season, and he was asked about taking more after the game. "Nah, my value’s inside," he said. Aldridge got hot in the third with 12 points to help the Spurs win that frame 32-20 to earn another blowout win. The Spurs offense has been clicking over their last seven games with a West-leading 117.6 offensive rating, so there could be more fantasy goodness to go around if they can stay hot on that end.
Dec 13 - 11:53 PM

Rudy Gay made 8-of-10 from the field for 21 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block, two steals, no turnovers and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He's looked a lot healthier lately and hasn't been on the injury report. Interestingly, Gay has ditched his Puma kicks because they were causing pain in his heel earlier this season, but the shoe company is working to find an alternative option besides him wearing another brand. His fantasy owners should be rooting for Puma to be taking their time because Gay has been outstanding over his last five, averaging 19.6 points, 7.6 boards, 2.2 dimes, 1.8 steals and 1.2 treys on 61.3% from the field and 94.1% from the line. He's a must-start player right now.
Dec 13 - 11:47 PM

Davis Bertans scored five points with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He was away from the team to be with his family for the birth of their first child. Bertans has gone on some heaters as a shooter, but he's just not going to get consistent minutes in most matchups.
Dec 13 - 11:44 PM

Derrick White scored 11 points in another start with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

This was aided by garbage time here and he did almost nothing in the first half, but it's somewhat encouraging that he's continued to start now that the Spurs have their depth. Plus, not putting Dante Cunningham out there against Tobias Harris or Danilo Gallinari could be a sign from coach Gregg Popovich that White has earned his trust again. Positive spin aside, White has been a letdown and hasn't had a really strong game in about a month, so he still has some work to do to warrant ownership in 12-team leagues. Keep a close eye on him, though.
Dec 13 - 11:42 PM

Davis Bertans (personal) isn't listed on the Spurs' injury report for Thursday's game vs. the Clippers.

Bertans missed the past two games but it sounds like he'll rejoin the team vs. L.A. He's been shooting extremely well from downtown lately, at 57.9% in his past four games, but that's the extent of his fantasy appeal.
Dec 12 - 6:07 PM

Jakob Poeltl hit 4-of-7 shots for eight points, 11 rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns.

Poeltl is hit-or-miss, averaging 10 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over his last five games. If you're in a deep league and desperate for a warm body at center, Poeltl might be worth a look.
Dec 11 - 11:06 PM

Dante Cunningham hit 5-of-7 shots and 4-of-4 3-pointers for 14 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes on Tuesday.

He hasn't done anything since scoring 19 points back on Nov. 19, and this looks like more of a fluke than anything. His minutes weren't much different than normal, but he simply couldn't miss with his shot tonight. He belongs on your waiver wire. He missed his last game with an abdominal strain, but looked good tonight.
Dec 11 - 11:04 PM

DeMar DeRozan hit just 2-of-6 shots for five points, two rebounds and nine assists in 26 minutes of Tuesday's 111-86 win over the Suns.

This was his first game of the season in single-digit scoring, and he had scored at least 26 points in four of his previous five games. Consider this a sort of night off for DeRozan, who usually plays well over 35 minutes a night for Gregg Popovich. He should bounce back on Thursday against the Clippers.
Dec 11 - 11:01 PM

Bryn Forbes started again and hit 8-of-14 shots, 5-of-5 3-pointers and 3-of-3 free throws for a season-high 24 points, a career-high 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns.

He came out on fire tonight and stayed that way, as the Suns refused to guard him. Derrick White fizzled again and Forbes has now scored in double digits in three straight games, making him worth a look in most leagues, despite playing for the wishy-washy Spurs. Just know that this may end up being his best game of the season, as he had everything working against one of the league's worst teams.
Dec 11 - 10:57 PM

David Bertans (personal) will not play on Tuesday against the Suns, as expected.

Bertans wasn't even present at shootaround, so it's not surprising to see him out tonight. His minutes will likely be divvied up between Dante Cunningham and Rudy Gay, with Gay being the preferable fantasy target.
Dec 11 - 7:00 PM

Dante Cunningham (abdominal soreness) will be available to play Tuesday against the Suns.

Cunningham sat out Sunday's game, but it looks like he'll be back in action tonight, which will could result in Chimezie Metu and Quincy Pondexter dropping out of the rotation entirely.
Dec 11 - 6:58 PM

Dante Cunningham (abdominal soreness) participated in Tuesday morning's shootaround.

Cunningham was upgraded to probable and is expected to return from a one-game absence on Tuesday night when the Spurs play the Suns. However, he's not a fantasy factor in standard leagues despite being a starter, as he's averaging just 5.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
Dec 11 - 12:43 PM

Davis Bertans (personal) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Bertans was not with the team for Sunday's game against the Jazz, resulting in minutes boosts for both Rudy Gay and Jakob Poeltl. Gay produced one of his best games of the season Sunday, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds with two assists, one steal and one blocked shot in 34 minutes. Poeltl added two points, six rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot in just under 19 minutes off the bench.
Dec 10 - 6:28 PM

Dante Cunningham (abdominal soreness) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Should he be able to play Cunningham would give the Spurs another option in the front court to call upon with Davis Bertans (personal) listed as doubtful. The Villanova product has been used as a starter for much of this season, averaging 5.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 20 starts. Should Cunningham have to miss a second consecutive game Marco Belinelli, who scored 10 points in Sunday's win over the Jazz, is likely to see more playing time.
