Davis Bertans scored eight points with seven rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.
He scored all eight of those points in a three-minute span in the first quarter -- that really hurt Dragan Bender. With Kawhi Leonard (quad) set to come back on Tuesday, Bertans is likely looking at a DNP-CD. Dec 10 - 3:54 AM

Davis Bertans went 6-of-12 from the field to finish Sunday's loss in OKC with 16 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds and five blocks in 29 minutes.

In the process, Bertans became the second player in Spurs history to record at least four 3-pointers and five blocks in a game (Danny Green had seven triples and five blocks in 2014). LaMarcus Aldridge was resting tonight and Pau Gasol didn't play in the second half, so this was very fluky, but Bertans deserves credit for taking advantage of the opportunity. Congrats to anyone who played him in DFS, but don't expect to see this again any time soon.

Davis Bertans finished with nine points, a rebound and a blocked shot in 11 minutess off the bench Friday against the Thunder.

Bertans didn't play long, but when he was in he was effective and gave the team a nice spark. He hit 3-of-4 from behind the arc to give him team a lift when they needed it. Despite his solid shooting he continues to have a rather limited fantasy ceiling.

Davis Bertans finished with 16 points and three assists in 19 minutes off the bench in Saturday's blowout victory against the Bulls.

The game was out of hand from the get-go, as the home team outscored the visitors 37-15. The lopsided nature of the game allowed players like Bertans, Matt Costello, Darrun Hilliard and Brandon Paul a little more run. Bertans took advantage the most, hitting 5-of-6 from behind the arc. Despite the solid shooting, he'll be back to a limited role on most nights and therefore his fantasy appeal is rather minimal.

The Spurs have recalled Davis Bertans and Derrick White from the G-League.

Neither player will likely be in the rotation unless the Spurs rest some veterans.
Nov 5 - 1:46 PM

The Spurs have assigned Davis Bertans and Derrick White to the Austin Spurs of the NBA Development League.

There was some hope that Bertans would be more of a factor in San Antonio this season, but he is averaging just 2.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in 7.8 minutes over four games this season.

Davis Bertans (right pinkie finger) will play with a splint for the next week.

He hasn't been shooting the ball well, but even playing is a good sign. Bertans will need a few things to happen to have fantasy value.

Davis Bertans (finger) returned to action for Team Latvia at Eurobasket on Monday.

Bertans was held out of Saturday's game vs. Belgium after suffering a finger injury, but X-rays were negative. The Spurs sent a team official to check up on the injury and he was cleared shortly after. He sported a sleeve on his finger in Monday's 97-92 win over Great Britain, but he looked great with 22 points and seven 3-pointers. He's an elite 3-point shooter and should have a role for the Spurs this season, but their signing of Rudy Gay will likely keep him off the standard-league radar.

X-rays came back negative on Davis Bertans' finger.

Bertans suffered a finger injury during Latvia's opening game of EuroBasket and he was held out of the second game as a precaution. The X-rays ruled out a break, but it sounds like he's still being evaluated. "I'm waiting for what the doctor will say, it's hard to say because I have not had the ball in the hands since Friday, but I do not feel pain," he said. Latvia's third game is on Monday, so we'll have another update then.

Davis Bertans is expected to be "part of the future foundation" for the Spurs, according to beat writer Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express News.

The rookie made a splash in the playoffs for the Spurs and looks like he'll be getting more minutes in 2017-18. While he didn't have a huge impact all year, Bertans ranked first in true shooting percentage among rookies with at least 30 games played in the regular season. If the Spurs lose some depth, Bertans could wind up getting more minutes at both forward spots.
May 27 - 7:54 PM

Davis Bertans scored two points with four rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He actually saw minutes in the first quarter and was a factor even before the David Lee (knee) injury. The Spurs need all the firepower they can get on offense and Bertans has been hot before during his rookie season, so maybe he's a possible solution for Game 4.
May 20 - 11:30 PM

Davis Bertans did not score in two minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

He's been very good lately, but coach Gregg Popovich is not going to trust Bertans with key rotation minutes just yet.
Apr 9 - 12:13 AM

Davis Bertans scored 19 points in a start at power forward on Friday vs. Dallas, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and five triples in 39 minutes.

He has some talent and is the only rookie in franchise history with 60+ 3-pointers and 25+ blocks in a season, but he's usually only relevant when the Spurs rest their studs. That was the case tonight, as Pau Gasol, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard were just three of the seven Spurs who sat this one out. Give Bertans a look the next time the Spurs rest multiple frontcourt players.
Apr 7 - 11:18 PM

Patty Mills, Jonathon Simmons, Kyle Anderson, Davis Bertans and Dewayne Dedmon will start against the Mavs on Friday.

Bertans is coming off a big 14-point game, so coach Gregg Popovich will lean on him again as the starter. If you're looking for a DFS punt or scoring in season-long leagues, Bertans could be worth a look today.
Apr 7 - 7:15 PM

Davis Bertans started the second half for LaMarcus Aldridge on Wednesday, finishing with 14 points, one rebound, one assist, one block and four 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

Coach Gregg Popovich rested his guys in the second half, which allowed Bertans to get some extra run. There will certainly be more rest coming in the next week, so maybe we can see another big game out of the rookie. It's still tough to add him unless guys are ruled out.
