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.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee filled it up in 17 minutes off the bench against the 76ers on Thursday, scoring 12 points with nine rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers.

It makes a lot of sense to keep him off the bench here. He played 13 of his 17 minutes next to Patty Mills, which has been a winning combo for coach Gregg Popovich. In the last three games, they have a net rating of +26.7 in a grand total of 45 minutes in that span. That aside, Lee has been a ninth-round player since Pau Gasol (hand) went down. He's still a hold, but just remember his value could fall off a cliff in a couple weeks.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee headed to the bench on Sunday and played 26 minutes, finishing with 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting, three rebounds, four assists and zero turnovers.

Lee should retake the starting center job vs. Steven Adams and the Thunder on Tuesday. Gregg Popovich was likely playing the matchups tonight, as Dallas went small with Dirk Nowitzki at center -- they were coming off a loss vs. the Pelicans, with Anthony Davis at center, so it's not a total shock. Lee is a fine player to own with Pau Gasol (hand) still weeks away from a return.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee will come off the bench on Sunday against the Mavericks.

Davis Bertans is staring at power forward, while LaMarcus Aldridge will start at center. With Dirk Nowitzki starting at center for the Mavs, this move makes sense. Lee should still play decent minutes off the bench.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee double-doubled vs. the Pelicans on Friday with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

He finished 5-of-7 from the field and added one block and one steal in 29 minutes. Since Pau Gasol (hand) went down, Lee has stepped up in those five games with averages of 12.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 steals. While he's worth owning right now, Lee could lose most of his value during the fantasy playoffs if Gasol returns in 4-5 weeks.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee moved back into the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. the Raptors and scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting.

He only played 21 minutes despite the starting role, as the Spurs used Kyle Anderson as a small-ball four to match up with the Raptors down the stretch. Lee was still productive and added five rebounds and two assists, and his owners can look forward to deploying him for the next 4-6 weeks until Pau Gasol (hand) is cleared to return. In Gasol's absence, Lee has started the last three out of four games.
Jan 24 - 10:10 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, sending Dewayne Dedmon back to the bench.

The Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard (hand), Tony Parker (foot) and Pau Gasol (hand) tonight, so it makes sense to bring Lee back into the starting five to help infuse some offense into the first unit. Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Lee in the starting five for tonight's game.
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee returned to a bench role on Monday vs. the Nets but still had a productive night with 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting.

Coming off two straight double-doubles, Lee came off the bench because the Spurs needed Dewayne Dedmon's rim protection against Brook Lopez. Lee added seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes, so he's still worth owning even if the Spurs continue to mix and match their lineups based on the opposing team's center. Lee should be a solid source of points, rebounds and shooting percentages for at least the next month with Pau Gasol (hand) out.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

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.
Jan 10 - 6:55 PM
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.
