Nando De Colo will be available to face the Magic on Sunday.
He's going to be the third point guard with the two guys ahead of him playing well in their roles, so there's no reason to think De Colo will be a factor. He can be ignored in all leagues. Feb 23 - 4:54 PM

Nando De Colo is dealing with visa issues and is not expected to be available until Sunday.

The Raptors have a should-be All-Star and a solid backup in Greivis Vasquez, so there's no need for De Colo to hurry. He has no fantasy value.
Feb 21 - 3:11 PM

Spurs traded Nando De Colo to the Raptors for Austin Daye.

Even with Tony Parker sidelined, De Colo has been out of the rotation behind Cory Joseph and Patty Mills. He'll be a third point guard behind Kyle Lowry and Greivis Vasquez in Toronto.
Feb 20 - 3:10 PM

Nando De Colo played 28 minutes off the bench against the Bobcats on Saturday with 15 points, two boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He was sporting his mask due to a nasal fracture on Thursday and he's been effective since the injury. De Colo has played at least 27 minutes in each of his last two games, but he's not involved enough in the offense to be worth a pickup in most formats.
Feb 8 - 9:52 PM

Nando De Colo suffered a nasal fracture in the second quarter and returned to the game with a mask.

He caught an elbow to the face from Andrei Kirilenko and was down on the court for a couple minutes before the training staff tended to him. De Colo and Matt Bonner will both be sporting masks, which should get a couple chuckles from those watching on Thursday. He finished with 11 points, three boards, two assists, two steals and one block.
Feb 6 - 8:55 PM

Nando De Colo and Marco Belinelli will move into the Spurs' starting lineup on Thursday, with both Tony Parker (back) and Tim Duncan (rest) unavailable.

The Spurs are rolling out an ultra-small lineup with De Colo, Belinelli, Cory Joseph, Danny Green and Tiago Splitter. They're facing a Nets team which also features a small lineup with Paul Pierce at PF and we expect plenty of unorthodox lineups throughout the course of the game from Gregg Popovich.
Feb 6 - 6:52 PM

Nando De Colo is starting against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He was pretty much out of the rotation up until the second half of January. Fantasy owners probably shouldn't trust anything coach Gregg Popovich does with his lineups excluding his studs. Although, Marco Belinelli and Boris Diaw should get some run off the bench.
Jan 29 - 9:54 PM

Nando De Colo scored a season-high 13 points in the Spurs' lopsided win vs. Milwaukee, sinking two 3-pointers with four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

This game had too many 'fluke' factors to alter De Colo's outlook, including Tony Parker's absence with a shin injury and the Spurs' 24-point lead after three quarters.
Jan 19 - 9:31 PM

Nando De Colo was recalled by the Spurs on Sunday.

He's been sent down to the D-League five times this year and will come back up. This raises the question of the Manu Ginobili's availability for Sunday, as well. De Colo has no fantasy value.
Jan 12 - 3:12 PM

Spurs assigned PG Nando De Colo and F Malcolm Thomas to the D-League's Austin Toros.

This is De Colo's fifth separate stint with the Toros this season. He's averaging an absurd 25.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 3.25 steals in the D-League, giving us some idea of just how soft the defense is in the minors.
Jan 3 - 12:50 PM

Nando De Colo has struggled this preseason, and he finished Sunday's game with five points, two assists and two turnovers in 12 minutes.

The backup PG spot is hotly contested between Cory Joseph and Patty Mills, and DeColo is on the outside looking in. Gregg Popovich's lineups change often enough that DeColo could easily join the rotation, but his fantasy outlook for 2013-14 is bleak.

Nando De Colo scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting in 23 minutes on Sunday, to go along with two boards and three steals in France's 77-65 loss to Serbia.

No one on France’s team had a particularly good game, but the team came in third in their group and will advance to the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Once the tournament is over, De Colo will head into training camp to battle with Cory Joseph for the backup point guard spot with the Spurs. Even if he wins the job, he only averaged 7.3 points and 4.3 assists in 6 starts last season, so he offers minimal fantasy value.

Nando De Colo suffered an undisclosed injury while practicing with the French national team, according to a French media report.

The injury appears to be minor since De Colo is still expected to participate in France's exhibition game against Finland on Friday. De Colo, who complained about his postseason playing time, will likely battle Cory Joseph and Patty Mills in training camp for playing time behind Tony Parker.

Nando De Colo recently complained about his lack of playing time in the playoffs.

De Colo has fallen behind Gary Neal and Cory Joseph on the depth chart. He has appeared in just three of the Spurs' 12 playoff games, with those appearances coming in strict garbage time. "Next year I'm under contract with San Antonio, and there is no reflection or having to say 'I'm going back to Europe.' I will continue to work," De Colo said. "We'll see with the Spurs if something must be done after the playoffs or not. It's frustrating not to play but there is nothing more to think."

Nando De Colo had six points, seven rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in a fill-in start for Tony Parker (neck) on Saturday.

De Colo has emerged as Gregg Popovich's preferred starting PG in Parker and Manu Ginobili's absence, with Gary Neal (14 minutes) and Cory Joseph (31 minutes) mopping up extra minutes off the bench. It's a crapshoot guessing which guy will go off on a given night, and with Parker day-to-day most owners would be better off avoiding them.
