David Lee scored 14 points in another start over the Cavs on Saturday, adding 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 36 minutes.
Wow. Lee caught a lot of flak for his terrible defense and lack of conditioning in the past few years. Earlier this season, Lee said he wasn't motivated in previous seasons and he has focused more on staying in shape this year. It shows. He's not going to be this good and coach Gregg Popovich loves the situational angle, but it makes a lot of sense to add league in standard leagues with Pau Gasol (hand) out 1-2 months.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee grabbed a season-high 16 boards in a start for Pau Gasol (hand) on Thursday against the Nuggets, adding 10 points, two assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

When he's in shape and is playing motivated, he has a similar skill set to Gasol right now. Coach Gregg Popovich said Lee was "fantastic" in this game, which isn't too surprising based on his previous starts. In those previous three, Lee averaged 8.7 points, 9.3 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks in 27.0 minutes. He should have some low-end value while Gasol is out for the next month or so, so he's worth a look in standard leagues for anyone needing a big man for points, boards and percentages.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee started in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) on Tuesday vs. the Bucks and scored 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 26 minutes.

He averaged 8.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.5 assist and 1.0 steal in two previous starts this season, so he's a decent punt in DFS every time he draws a start. Assuming Aldridge returns on Thursday vs. the Lakers, Lee will be an afterthought very soon.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee will start in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Lee did not play in the Spurs previous game on Saturday due to a minor knee injury, but practiced on Monday and is ready to roll. Lee has started two games this season and is averaging 8.0 points and 10.5 rebounds in those two contests. He is worth considering as a DFS tournament play due to his cheap salary. Davis Bertans, who played very well on Saturday, will back Lee up and could see 20-plus minutes.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (left knee contusion) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Lee sat out Saturday's win over the Hornets, but he was back at practice on Monday and he'll be back in action on Tuesday night. However, Lee only logs about 17 minutes per contest, which is not enough time for him to produce meaningful stat lines.
Jan 9 - 5:37 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (left knee contusion) returned to practice on Monday.

He missed Saturday's game vs. the Hornets which was his first DNP of the season, but he should be ready to roll for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks. He's averaging 6.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 17.0 minutes this season. Dewayne Dedmon played 23 minutes against the Hornets, so that number should take a hit with Lee expected back.
Jan 9 - 1:38 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (left knee contusion) will not play Saturday vs. the Hornets.

This will be the first game Lee has missed all season. He is averaging 6.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 17.0 minutes off the San Antonio bench. Starters Pau Gasol and/or LaMarcus Aldridge may see a few more minutes than usual on Saturday. Dewayne Dedmon will also likely see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Jan 7 - 1:31 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee hit 3-of-7 shots for seven points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes on Thursday night.

This marked Lee’s fourth consecutive game playing at least 18 minutes, averaging 22 minutes, eight points and 7.5 rebound during that stretch. He has more fantasy appeal on night’s that LaMarcus Aldridge sits and can be considered a spot start then.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee played a season-high 30 minutes in a start for LaMarcus Aldridge against the Celtics on Wednesday with eight points, 10 rebounds, three assists and one steal.

His best game came in Boston back on Nov. 25, so he certainly likes the revenge factor. Lee was only playing 15.8 minutes per game in his previous outings this month, which is where he'll be most nights. Aldridge is slightly banged up, so expect LMA to rest again at some point. Lee is more of a stream on the nights LMA sits.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee will start for LaMarcus Aldridge against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Revenge game? Lee should see minutes in the upper 20s in this game. He's said he's in better shape, so maybe coach Gregg Popovich lets him loose. Davis Bertans will back him up and could get 20-25 minutes.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee was fantastic against the Celtics on Friday, posting season-highs 15 points and 12 rebounds, adding three assists in 18 minutes.

He didn't have a good time in Boston earlier in his career and even admitted he wasn't at his best as a Celtic. "I think everybody makes mistakes in their career," Lee said after the game. "I think I came in [to Boston] not in the best shape and it wasn’t by design." He looked as spry as ever in this win today, but Lee won't get much opportunity to play unless the Spurs are sitting players.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee started at PF on Sunday and notched eight points, 11 rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes of action.

LaMarcus Aldridge was resting at the tail end of the Spurs' four-game week, allowing Lee to step up as a temporary starter. He looks like a great fit for San Antonio in reality, but his fantasy appeal is limited to very deep formats.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee is starting in place of LaMacus Aldridge (rest) vs. the Heat on Sunday.

The Spurs will likely use a committee approach to soak up Aldridge's workload, but Lee is a decent dart throw in DFS. He's averaging 8.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 14.3 minutes through three games. Lee will be joined in the starting lineup by Tony Parker, Kyle Anderson, Kawhi Leonard and Pau Gasol.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Magic.

Lee gets his first experience as a DNP-POP here. He'll be coming off the bench next year and should be in the rotation as a backup PF/C.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee is looking to contribute to the Spurs in whatever way he can.

Lee is joining the Spurs on a two-year deal for the veteran minimum and knows he'll be more of a role player with San Antonio. "I’m not coming here saying, ‘LaMarcus better watch out, I’m taking his spot,’" Lee said. "Those two guys [Aldridge and Gasol] are established All-Stars. I want to come in here and whatever minutes I’m given, I’m going to play them with energy." Lee won't be worth much in standard fantasy leagues, but he could have some good DFS nights when the Spurs rest players.
