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.

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.

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.

Davis Bertans did not score in 11 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday with one rebound, one assist and one block.

Hey, those two games in a row earlier this week were fun, but Bertans didn't get much of a chance tonight with a fresh Pau Gasol. Bertans will have some value later in the season and it'll be interesting to see what happens when Dewayne Dedmon comes back.

Davis Bertans scored a career-high 15 points in 23 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, adding two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He's the other part of the George Hill trade. Bertans is a very good shooter and he's been a much better defender lately. The 24-year-old forward is coming off a fantastic 11-point game in 11 minutes on Wednesday and he also got a start back on Monday, so he may be trending up. Obviously, Dewayne Dedmon (knee) getting hurt helps and it's always tough to trust coach Gregg Popovich, so Bertans is only a deep flier for owners with dead weight.

Davis Bertans scored a career-high 11 points for the Spurs on Wednesday, going 4-of-4 from the field with a 3-of-3 mark from downtown.

Bertans also blocked one shot but he didn't have any rebounds, assists or steals in his 11 minutes of action. His emergence in the rotation has stifled Kyle Anderson (zero stats in under a minute of action), and neither guy is worth much attention outside of the deepest leagues.

Davis Bertans started on Monday vs. Dallas but didn't do much, scoring three points (a triple) with two rebounds in 20 minutes.

LaMarcus Aldridge took the night off to rest, so Bertans will head back to the bench on Wednesday where he is averaging just 10.0 minutes per game. He's not a fantasy asset.

Davis Bertans is starting vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

LaMarcus Aldridge is resting Monday, but the veteran PF will be back in the lineup on Wednesday. Bertans is shooting just 33.3 percent from the field this season and is not a fantasy pickup at the moment.

Davis Bertans (right leg) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

It's unclear exactly when Bertans suffered this injury, but with both Bertans and Danny Green (quad) on the sidelines Tuesday night, Kyle Anderson and Jonathan Simmons should get all the run they can handle.

Davis Bertans is expected to see "plenty of time" off the bench this season after making some noise from the 3-point line during the preseason.

"I won’t have to tell him to shoot, which is great," coach Gregg Popovich said after Bertans took 11 3-point attempts in the team’s intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday, making six. "And he gets it off pretty quickly, too. At 6-foot-10, that’s a good thing." Bertans is averaging 5.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.0 treys in just 13.8 minutes through five games, so there is some upside here. A lot of things will need to go right for Bertans this season and he's competing for minutes off the bench with Kyle Anderson and David Lee, so just keep any eye on him if you're in a deeper league.

Davis Bertans has not officially signed his contract and will not play on Saturday.

It's a small letdown for the die-hard fans out there. Bertans is a good scorer, so he would have been someone to watch. Hopefully, he can get under contract for the next time out. He's still not expected to make the rotation.
Sat, Jul 9, 2016 03:12:00 PM

Davis Bertans agreed to a two-year deal with the Spurs.

He was a 2011 second-round pick and has played overseas. Bertans is more of a shooter and has been a bit injury prone. He'll likely just be injury insurance at age 24.
Wed, Jul 6, 2016 06:57:00 PM

The Spurs will reportedly offer Davis Bertans a minimum deal.

The Latvian forward was the 42nd pick in the 2011 draft and currently plays for Laboral Kutxa in Spain. The 24-year-old sharpshooter recently recovered from his second straight torn ACL in his right knee, but he is believed to be 100 percent. While he does have one more year left on his deal, the Spurs will be able to buy him out and offer him a minimum contract.
