Dewayne Dedmon (illness) returned to action, but he only played two minutes off the bench. Lee made his second straight start and shot an efficient 5-of-6 from the field, but played 26 minutes compared to his 33 minutes in Game 4. Assuming Lee sticks in the starting lineup for Game 6, he will be on the DFS radar until his price catches up to his new role. Apr 25 - 11:44 PM

David Lee will remain in the starting lineup for Game 5 vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

While Dewayne Dedmon (illness) is available, coach Gregg Popovich said he will stick with the veteran. Lee played 33 minutes in Game 4, but wasn't too effective with eight points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal. With that said, he should fare better tonight and is on the radar in DFS if you're looking for a cheap PF option.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee made a spot start on Saturday, finishing with eight points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in a loss to the Grizzlies.

He was not very good in the starting lineup, posting a -15 in the +/- stat. Dewayne Dedmon should feel better for Tuesday's Game 5, so expect Lee to move back to his role of minutes in the teens. He did not score in Game 3.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee had a great game off the bench on Friday vs. the Mavericks with 16 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 31 minutes.

The Spurs rested seven players including Pau Gasol, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kahwi Leonard, so Lee was a popular play in DFS and rewarded his owners with a solid game. He finished 6-of-16 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, and he could have another big line or two in the final three games of the season with the Spurs resting up for the postseason. To be clear, Lee could very easily be rested as well.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies, but failed to score in 17 minutes.

He missed a pair of shots from the field with two rebounds and one assist, but that was it. Lee was held out of Sunday's game due to a "minor injury," but he could have some low-end streaming appeal on Wednesday vs. the Lakers if the Spurs rest a couple studs. Just be aware that Lee is also a candidate for a DNP or two in the final five games.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (rest, minor injury) didn't play vs. the Jazz on Sunday.

Lee suited up but Gregg Popovich said he didn't play because of a "minor injury." Lee should return to action on Tuesday, but keep in mind that it's the first game of a back-to-back set. There are no guarantees here.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) returned to action on Thursday with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal, finishing 2-of-2 from the field in 22 minutes.

Lee sat out Tuesday's game but it was mostly a precautionary DNP, and he was never in doubt tonight. The veteran is fitting in well with San Antonio, averaging 7.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He's shooting 61.2 percent from the field, the second-highest mark in his career, but limited minutes continue to spoil his fantasy appeal.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) will play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He was probable to play after missing Tuesday's action. With the Spurs having most of their depth up front, Lee is likely looking at minutes in the upper teens. He's not a fantasy option right now.
Mar 23 - 6:59 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is probable for Thursday against the Grizzlies.

He said he is expecting to play, so this is essentially a non-update. Lee is likely looking at minutes in the teens now that the Spurs are healthy up front.
Mar 22 - 9:15 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) said he expects to play Thursday vs. Memphis.

Lee did not play Tuesday, but it was expected to be just a one-game absence. Lee's return will mean LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol will play their usual allotment of minutes on Thursday.
Mar 22 - 1:45 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

He's dealing with a sore left foot, but he said he's sitting as a precaution and expects to play on Thursday vs. Memphis. With Lee out, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol could get a small bump in minutes, while we could see more of Davis Bertans at the four.
Mar 21 - 8:24 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee came off the bench on Wednesday for 12 points and five rebounds, making 5-of-6 field goals and 2-of-3 free throws in 19 minutes.

LaMarcus Aldridge (heart) was able to return tonight, fortunately, which returned Lee to his typical bench role. He's made 75.0 percent of his shots over the past five games and is a decent source of rebounds, but most owners can do better on the waiver wire.
Mar 16 - 12:47 AM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee scored 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting vs. the Hawks on Monday.

Unlike Saturday's blowout 107-85 win over the Warriors, the Spurs actually needed Lee tonight and he logged 30 minutes with six rebounds, four assists and a block. The Spurs have three more games this week and LaMarcus Aldridge (heart) doesn't have a timetable to return, so Lee looks like a nice pickup for owners targeting points, rebounds and shooting percentages.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee scored 12 points during a blowout 107-85 win over the Warriors on Saturday, adding six rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 18 minutes.

He played 12 minutes in the first half in this game and was looking at a few extra minutes had this game been close. Coach Gregg Popovich kind of uses Lee as an understudy, so he should be stepping up while LaMarcus Aldridge (heart) is out. He didn't really make a difference-making impact when Pau Gasol was out, but give him a look if you're sick of the guy at the end of your bench. The Spurs do play four games this upcoming week and they are now just 0.5 games behind the Warriors.
Mar 12 - 1:12 AM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs will start Patty Mills, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson (knee), David Lee and Dewayne Dedmon on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

With LaMarcus Aldridge (heart) out indefinitely, Lee is a strong short-term pickup. The Spurs play four times next week and Lee averaged 11.5 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists in eight previous starts this season. He won't rack up many defensive stats, but he could be a nice double-double guy with solid shooting percentages going forward.
