Davis Bertans was quiet on Sunday with three points and four rebounds in 14 minutes, but he earned some pre-game praise from coach Gregg Popovich.
"He is somebody who has a really bright future," Pop said. "He just needs minutes and experience." The Spurs aren't in player-development mode, and Bertans has only played 20+ minutes four times this season, but his 3-point shooting has kept him in the rotation. Just keep an eye on him in deep leagues. Feb 12 - 6:47 PM

Davis Bertans scored seven points off the bench with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

That's still a really solid line even though some of it was in garbage time. Bertans has really been impressive in his rookie season as one of the best offensive rooks per minute, but he's only a deep-league for this week. Pau Gasol could be back around the All-Star break.
Feb 5 - 1:45 AM

Davis Bertans will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

The Spurs will roll with Dewayne Dedmon next to the returning LaMarcus Aldridge (knee). Bertans has impressed in limited minutes, but his role is too volatile when the Spurs are healthy. He's a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues for now.
Feb 4 - 9:16 PM

Davis Bertans made a start against the 76ers on Thursday with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

It looked like Bertans was on his way to a big game with eight first-quarter points, but this will work. In the short term, the Spurs could actually be using Bertans, who has torn his ACL twice, also has a partial finger, and was the other piece in the Kawhi Leonard deal. His efficiency has helped his averages in his last six, averaging 10.0 points, 3.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.7 steals and 2.0 treys in just 19.6 minutes. That's actually good for eighth-round value, so he may have something for owners in deep leagues until Pau Gasol (hand) and/or LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) get back.
Feb 2 - 11:53 PM

David Bertans will start next to Dewayne Dedmon against the 76ers on Thursday.

That means David Lee will be coming off the bench, which makes sense. The Spurs won't need extra usage in their first unit, so putting Lee in the second group to take a ton of shots makes sense. Bertans has been pretty solid in his rookie season and has been shooting the ball well, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues while LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is on the shelf.
Feb 2 - 8:40 PM

Davis Bertans moved back to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Thunder and struggled, scoring two points on 1-of-6 shooting.

The Spurs started Dewayne Dedmon because they needed his size on Steven Adams. Bertans was shooting 42.9 percent from deep prior to Tuesday, but he missed all four of his triples tonight, adding five boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes. He's only worth monitoring in very deep leagues until Pau Gasol (hand) returns.
Jan 31 - 11:46 PM

Davis Bertans was a surprise starter vs. the Mavs on Sunday, posting six points with three rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes.

Bertans' start shifted LaMarcus Aldridge to the center spot, with David Lee coming off the bench. He fared well in his second career start but we don't expect this to last, and Bertans is only a speculative addition in the deepest re-draft leagues.
Jan 29 - 10:57 PM

Davis Bertans will start for the Spurs on Sunday, with LaMarcus Aldridge at center and David Lee coming off the bench.

This is likely a matchup-based move against a Mavs squad that's starting Dirk Nowitzki at center tonight. Bertans has proven to be a reliable perimeter shooter, but there's still no reason to grab him in standard leagues.
Jan 29 - 7:08 PM

Davis Bertans scored 17 points and hit a career-high five 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.

Where do the Spurs find these guys? He logged 20 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-9 from the field with one rebound, one block and one steal. He joined Gary Neal (6) as the only other rookie to hit 5+ 3-pointers in a game for the Spurs, but he's just a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues until he gets consistent burn -- he averaged 11.1 minutes in January prior to tonight.
Jan 28 - 12:36 AM

Davis Bertans scored four points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

When Bertans does get minutes, it's usually behind LaMarcus Aldridge. In this game, he only played next to LMA for four minutes and he actually played well overall today. Over the last 15 games, Aldridge has played only 3.9 percent of his minutes next to Bertans. He's only a pickup if you're desperate with Dewayne Dedmon and David Lee already picked up.
Jan 20 - 12:02 AM

Davis Bertans scored 11 points with three triples in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.

David Lee (knee) returned to action tonight, but Bertans remained in the rotation because LaMarcus Aldridge was out with an illness. Bertans added two assists and one block in 19 minutes, and he was coming off a monster 21-point performance on Saturday with four triples. The Spurs may have found another gem, but he's unlikely to be a factor when the Spurs are at full strength.
Jan 10 - 11:34 PM

Davis Bertans scored a career-high 21 points during a 102-85 win over the Hornets on Saturday, adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

The efficiency was out of this world, making 5-of-6 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line. Bertans is only the second Spur to ever score 20-plus points on fewer than seven attempts from the field. This big game is due to David Lee not playing and also the Hornets doing a great job on Pau Gasol, The "other" part of the Kawhi Leonard deal doesn't have much value, but the Spurs sure can find talent in strange places.
Jan 8 - 12:37 AM

Davis Bertans played 15 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday with three points, one rebound, one 3-pointer and a career-high four assists.

LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) did not play to open up some minutes for Bertans. He's shown some different tools in his time this year and coach Gregg Popovich has given him the green light when he gets minutes. Bertans is obviously only worth a look in extremely deep leagues.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 12:34:00 AM

Davis Bertans was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

He's known as the "enforcer" off the bench. We're kidding. Bertans rarely plays and was ejected after a shoving match with Michael Beasley. He scored one point in eight minutes.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 09:59:00 PM

The Spurs have recalled Davis Bertans from the D-League.

His role in San Antonio is too inconsistent to warrant a roster spot in most leagues.
