Kawhi Leonard scored 21 points during a 105-97 win over the Clippers on Friday, adding three rebounds, six assists, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

He only played 15 minutes in the All-Star Game because he wanted to rest up for the second half, so coach Gregg Popovich is rubbing off on him. For what it's worth, Kawhi actually played 2.0 minutes per game after the break last year with a higher usage rate along the way. His fantasy owners shouldn't expect too much of a drop off until the second week of April.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored 17 points in his return to the lineup against the Clippers on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, two assist, one block and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

Those three treys are the most he's made as a Spur. Gasol had one of the wildest injuries of the season when he broke his hand while in layup lines before the game on Jan. 19. The 36-year-old Gasol will likely be getting some days off with the Spurs comfortably in the No. 2 spot and also Dewayne Dedmon will be used as a defensive stopper to offset Gasol's struggles on that end. That said, the future Hall of Fame big man should be owned in all leagues now that he's back.
Feb 25 - 3:39 AM

Dewayne Dedmon scored four points with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four blocks against the Clippers on Friday night.

He's not dead yet. Coach Gregg Popovich loves to use Dedmon as a situational big man, especially against formidable 4-5 combos like the Clippers have. Even with Pau Gasol back, Dedmon figures to get the most run of the bigs not named Gasol or LaMarcus Aldridge. He could still be a sneaky block specialist, but there will be a handful of bad games due to the matchup-based minutes from night to night.
Feb 25 - 3:35 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 15 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

On paper, Aldridge was expected to see a boost in production while Pau Gasol was out. Well, that did not happen due to Aldridge making just 39.0 percent from the field in his previous February games and a drop in scoring compared to January despite an increase in minutes. LMA tore it up in the second half last season, but he just doesn't have it in his age-31 season. He's more of a mid-round guy than the early-round he's been for most of this decade.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee played 11 minutes with two points, five rebounds and one block against the Clippers on Friday.

He was the primary beneficiary from the Pau Gasol injury and looked great for the last month. We'll see some more Lee at some point when the Spurs rest their bigs, but he's a clear cut candidate for those who used him in deep leagues.
Feb 25 - 3:25 AM

David Bertans was a DNP-CD on Friday.

He had a nice little run as the fifth forward in the rotation, but he's out now with Pau Gasol back. We'll see Bertans again when the Spurs rest players, but there's no need to stash him.
Feb 25 - 3:24 AM

Manu Ginobili scored six points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Clippers on Friday

He didn't need to miss any games due to an ankle injury in his final game before the All-Star break. With the Spurs likely to coast to the No. 2 seed, expect Ginobili to get some days off in the next two months.
Feb 25 - 3:22 AM

Chris Paul returned to action on Friday night during a 105-97 loss to the Spurs on Friday, scoring 17 points with six rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

In his first game back since Jan. 16, CP3 admitted there was some rust on the offense. "There’s no excuses," Paul said about the loss. "This was our first game with everybody. I probably threw some guys off, but we’re going to figure it out." Loss and low assists aside, Paul beating his timetable by a week and getting 33 minutes is encouraging. Expect him to be a first-round player after a very brief adjustment period.
