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

Date:

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.
Mar 12 - 12:56 AM

David Bertans was a DNP-CD on Friday.

He had a nice little run as the fifth forward in the rotation, but he's out now with Pau Gasol back. We'll see Bertans again when the Spurs rest players, but there's no need to stash him.
Feb 25 - 3:24 AM

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.
