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.
Apr 5 - 11:50 PM

Davis Bertans logged 34 minutes as a starter on Sunday, finishing with 11 points, four rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist and one steal.

LaMarcus Aldridge was out with a thumb injury and David Lee didn't play due to a "minor injury." Bertans came in averaging just over 20 minutes in five previous starts, so his activity tonight was very unexpected. He'll be worth considering as a DFS punt play or streaming option, but only if the Spurs opt to rest multiple bigs.
Apr 2 - 6:54 PM

Davis Bertans will start on Sunday in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb).

The former second-round pick isn't a fantasy option despite the temporary promotion. In four previous starts he averaged 5.8 points on 36.0 percent shooting, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks.
Apr 2 - 3:25 PM

Davis Bertans moved back to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Wolves and finished scoreless with one rebound in six minutes.

He didn't get any extra run with David Lee (foot) out, but he shouldn't have been owned in most leagues anyways. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 22 - 12:41 AM

Davis Bertans made a surprise start on Sunday in place of Dewayne Dedmon, but he finished with just two points and one rebound in 15 minutes of action.

Bertans was ineffective to begin the game and wound up back on the bench to start the third quarter. It's probable Gregg Popovich just wanted more offense in his starting unit, or was searching for a spark after two straight losses, but either way it's very unlikely that Bertans will get another start.
Mar 19 - 10:01 PM

Davis Bertans is starting over Dewayne Dedmon against the Kings on Sunday.

Coach Gregg Popovich is trying something new today and will give Bertans his fourth start this season. This could mean Dedmon is resting or Pop just wants to see how the rookie handles minutes with the first unit. Regardless, there's no need to add him here.
Mar 19 - 7:06 PM

Davis Bertans scored 13 points with three rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers against the Warriors on Saturday.

The other part of the Kawhi Leonard deal played really well in this game. Bertans should be in the rotation while LaMarcus Aldridge (heart) is out, but he's really just a deep-league or desperation stream.
