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.

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.
Mar 11 - 6:58 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee played just 11 minutes off the bench against the Thunder on Thursday, scoring one point with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

That playing time dip was more than expected because the Spurs gave a look to Davis Bertans. Lee won't be a reliable player in most leagues unless you love the revenge game factors more than we do. He'll get the Warriors on Saturday.
Mar 9 - 11:14 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee will come off the bench against the Thunder on Thursday.

After playing 31 minutes with LaMarcus Aldridge resting on Wednesday, Lee should be back around 20 minutes tonight. He won't be a reliable fantasy play when the Spurs have their full frontcourt arsenal.
Mar 9 - 7:41 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee got the start in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) on Wednesday, playing 31 minutes to finish with 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting, 10 rebounds and two blocks.

Lee went 8-of-8 from the field last Wednesday, so apparently hump-day is when you want to target him in DFS. As solid as he looked tonight, Lee only saw 30+ minutes because Aldridge was out. Expect him to resume playing 18-20 minutes on Thursday.
Mar 9 - 1:20 AM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee will start Wednesday's game in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (rest).

Jonathon Simmons will also start in place of Kawhi Leonard (rest), as Gregg Popovich is giving two of his team's anchors some well-earned rest. Both guys are worth a look as punt plays in late-night DFS lineups, and we should also more minutes for Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and Davis Bertans.
Mar 8 - 7:24 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee went 8-of-8 from the field to score 18 points during Wednesday's 100-99 win vs. Indiana.

D-Lee added five rebounds and one block in 21 minutes, and anyone who rolled the dice on him tonight should be overjoyed. He's maintained a solid spot in the rotation, but lacks fantasy upside while the rest of the Spurs' bigs are healthy.
Mar 2 - 1:45 AM
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 Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee played 22 minutes off the bench and hit 4-of-5 shots for 12 points, 11 rebounds and a block in Monday's win over the Pacers.

Lee's been a bit rough to own lately, averaging 9.8 points and 6.8 rebounds over his last five games, and will take a hit once Pau Gasol is back from his hand injury. Gasol is due back just after the All-Star break, so if you've been rolling with Lee, it's probably time to start making backup plans.
Feb 13 - 10:08 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee came off the bench and hit 6-of-6 shots for 14 points, three rebounds, a steal and a block in Monday's 89-74 loss to the Grizzlies.

We're not clear on why he didn't play more minutes, especially given how hot he was, but such is life with Gregg Popovich. Lee's worth owning as long as Pau Gasol is out with his broken hand and is averaging 9.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.8 blocks over his last five games, despite playing just 21 minutes a night.
