Marco Belinelli scored a team-high 21 points against the Mavs on Saturday with three rebounds, two assists and five turnovers.
He played 39 minutes in the starting lineup with the Spurs resting most of their wing guys. Belinelli has been good on the nights he gets heavy minutes, but the problem is that doesn't happen often enough. He'll have a big night again, so keep him in mind the next time the Spurs rest numerous players. Dec 20 - 11:44 PM

Date:

Marco Belinelli will start on Saturday vs. Dallas, replacing Danny Green.

Green will come off of the bench in an effort to monitor his playing time after playing 44 minutes on Friday, so this is by no means a permanent move. Belinelli is worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of 3-pointers, and will also be a decent plug-and-play option Saturday.
Dec 20 - 7:37 PM

Marco Belinelli scored a season-high 22 points against the Knicks on Wednesday with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He scored 20 on Saturday and 13 on Tuesday, so Belinelli is one of the hottest Spurs right now. He should get more chances to score along with the playing time until Kawhi Leonard can return. Leonard shouldn't be out for long, so Bello is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Dec 11 - 1:21 AM

Marco Belinelli is beginning to find his groove with his groin injury now behind him.

"I played the first two games of the season, and then I was injured for a lot of games," Belinelli said. "I think that kind of injury takes time, so I just try to be better every time and do my best every game." Belinelli has made 7-of-13 three-point attempts over his last three games.
Dec 8 - 10:18 AM

Marco Belinelli was on fire to start Saturday's game against the Wolves, finishing with 20 points, two rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He hit a buzzer beater at the end of the first half to give him what was already a season-high 17 points at the break. Belinelli scored just 11 points combined in his last two and Manu Ginobili (shoulder) shouldn't be out long, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Dec 7 - 12:41 AM

Marco Belinelli played 10 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

He did not score and had just three rebounds, three assists and one steal. Belinelli is not 100 percent and the Spurs might have started him just to mix it up. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 23 - 1:52 AM

Marco Belinelli (groin) will make a surprise start for the Spurs on Saturday, sending Danny Green to the bench.

Belinelli wasn't even certain to play and this start comes out of nowhere, especially since Green has been playing very well lately and San Antonio doesn't have a healthy backup PG. This will likely be a one-game move from Gregg Popovich, so don't overreact to the unusual lineup.
Nov 22 - 8:41 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) will play against the Nets on Saturday.

He said he didn't have an aggravation on Friday and just stayed on the exercise bike to stay warm. Belinelli is unlikely to get more than minutes in the teens tonight, so he's not worth starting in most leagues.
Nov 22 - 7:33 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) is a game-time decision vs. the Nets on Saturday.

The Spurs have already ruled out a handful of players, including backup PG Cory Joseph, so it's at least encouraging that Belinelli will try to warm up. He doesn't have enough upside in his bench role to be worth a gamble in fantasy leagues even if he were at full health.
Nov 22 - 6:55 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) is questionable to face the Nets on Saturday.

He only played 10 minutes in his return on Friday and the Spurs have never been shy about resting players in a back-to-back set, so Belinelli could sit. Danny Green has been on fire lately and should be considered as a must-start guy in standard leagues tonight.
Nov 22 - 2:38 PM

Marco Belinelli returned to the lineup on Friday, playing 10 minutes with five points and two boards.

He has been out for over two weeks and the Spurs will likely ease him back in the lineup considering he's dealt with groin issues before. Belinelli isn't going to have much in most leagues while the wings and guards are healthy.
Nov 21 - 11:43 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Belinelli is confined to a bench role, and is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers on the year, so his value is limited to deep leagues. If he plays, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green would see a slight reduction in minutes, but Belinelli won't have a large enough impact to hurt either of their values.
Nov 21 - 12:19 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Belinelli is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers this season, so his return to the court shouldn't matter for owners in standard leagues. Deep league owners will want to check back closer to Friday's tip for an official update on his status.
Nov 20 - 5:16 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He was listed as doubtful and did not have much of a chance to play tonight. Beliinelli should be considered questionable to face the Wolves on Friday. Danny Green and Cory Joseph get some slight bumps in value tonight.
Nov 19 - 5:39 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game.

The Italian is only an asset in deeper leagues for his 3-pointers, so owners in standard leagues can continue to ignore him. If Belinelli can't go, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard will continue to absorb his minutes.
