Davis Bertans played 19 minutes and hit 3-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, a steal and a block in Tuesday's 10-point loss to the Wizards.
LaMarcus Aldridge left with a knee injury tonight and Bertans saw a spike in minutes after it happened. But Gregg Popovich played his entire team double-digit minutes tonight, and it's hard to see Bertans doing much outside of the occasional solid stat line, with or without Aldridge. Mar 27 - 9:45 PM

Davis Bertans ended up with 14 points across 18 minutes off the bench Saturday in Oklahoma City.

Bertans heated up nicely, hitting 4-of-6 from the floor, including 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. He gave the team nice production, actually tying a team best with the 14 points. It was a strange game for the Spurs, who will turn in their first losing record on the road since the 1996-97 season. Next up is a trip to Houston on Monday, the first contest in a four-game week.
Mar 10 - 11:22 PM

Davis Bertans will move to the bench on Saturday.

He should still get minutes, but he'll likely be back down to 15-20. Bertans isn't really a reliable player to use, especially with the new story on Kawhi Leonard that just came out.
Mar 10 - 8:25 PM

Davis Bertans returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Grizzlies, scoring 17 points in just 19 minutes.

Bertans finished 5-of-9 from the field, 1-of-5 from deep and 6-of-7 from the line to go with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one triple. He moved to the bench to accommodate LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle), but could find himself back in the starting lineup on Thursday vs. Golden State with Pau Gasol already considered doubtful with a shoulder injury. He has fared pretty well in nine fill-in starts this season with 10.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.9 triples, making him a fine speculative pickup in deeper leagues.
Mar 6 - 12:04 AM

Davis Bertans started for Pau Gasol (left knee) on Wednesday, finishing with seven points, three rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

Bertans was yanked early tonight, but bounced back in the second half and wound up playing 17 minutes total. Gasol has a bone bruise and his return date is unclear, and the Spurs also lost LaMarcus Aldridge (sprained ankle) tonight. That gives Bertans some daylight going forward, but his upside is limited as basically a 3-point specialist.
Mar 1 - 1:15 AM

Davis Bertans is starting for Pau Gasol (knee) on Wednesday against the Pelicans.

Bertans is back in the first unit again after he had two starts for LaMarcus Aldridge before the All-Star break. He should be looking at minutes in the upper 20s and will be asked to hoist plenty of treys. He's worth a look as a specialist.
Feb 28 - 7:02 PM

Davis Bertans started for LaMarcus Aldridge on Monday and hit 5-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, four rebounds, one steal and three blocks in 29 minutes of a tough 101-99 loss to the Jazz.

Bertans played 31 minutes on Saturday and 26 minutes in his previous game, and LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) will be out again on Tuesday. If you want to stream him or use him in DFS on Tuesday, it might not be a bad idea, but just don't look for him to post a monster fantasy line. Tonight is as good as it gets with Bertans.
Feb 12 - 11:33 PM

Davis Bertans is starting against the Jazz on Monday.

With LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) out Monday and Tuesday, Bertans could be a nice source of fantasy value and is likely one of the best sources of triples on your wire right now. To be clear, LMA is fully expected to be back after the break.
Feb 12 - 9:14 PM

Davis Bertans finished with 10 points, five rebounds, four assist and a steal with no turnovers across 31 minutes in Saturday's 122-105 loss at Golden State.

Bertans continues to start with Pau Gasol coming off the bench, and he is doing a decent enough job. He was an efficient 4-of-7 from the field, while going 1-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. The good news is that he is taking good care of the basketball, but coach Gregg Popovich wouldn't commit to Bertans as the long-term starter. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues even if he is a part of the starting five.
Feb 10 - 11:03 PM

Davis Bertans started again on Wednesday and had nine points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Bertans logged 26 minutes in a runaway road win vs. the Suns. The Spurs were so good that it's hard to envision Gregg Popovich changing his starters for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors, but he wouldn't commit to Bertans starting over Pau Gasol long-term. As long as the Spurs' frontcourt veterans are healthy, Bertans belongs on the wire in most fantasy formats.
Feb 8 - 1:31 AM

Davis Bertans was good for just eight points on 2-of-7 from the field in Saturday's start against the Jazz.

Bertans was a surprise starter in place of Pau Gasol, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. He added just one rebounds and one assist over 19 minutes, while Gasol scored eight points with 11 rebounds over 20 minutes. It's uncertain if Gregg Popovich is considering this permanently, or if Gasol was originally going to get a rest and then was called upon as a change of heart by Pop. Either way, Gasol is the better fantasy option at this juncture.
Feb 4 - 12:21 AM

Davis Bertans started the second half of Sunday's game, posting eight points, four rebounds, four assists and a pair of 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

Bertans hit 3-of-7 shots overall and his promotion over Pau Gasol (14 points, 11 boards in 25 minutes) after halftime isn't likely to have long-term repercussions. The Spurs were simply not playing well through two quarters, and Bertans was one of three bench players unexpectedly promoted to jumpstart the team. We'll keep an eye on his role over the next few games.
Jan 28 - 11:23 PM

Davis Bertans started on Wednesday and had 11 points, four boards, three assists, one steal and one block, going 5-of-11 from the field with one 3-pointer.

LaMarcus Aldridge was rested tonight in the second of back-to-back games, allowing Bertans to soak up 33 minutes. Aldridge should be rested and ready for games on Friday and Sunday, though, so Bertans is still little more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 25 - 12:07 AM

Davis Bertans got the start on Tuesday with Pau Gasol (wrist) unavailable and hit 4-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 30 minutes.

Bertans has been unreliable this season and isn't worth owning, but on nights when he's starting for the Spurs, he's worth a look as a DFS punt. He came through tonight if you used him.
Jan 23 - 10:39 PM

Davis Bertans will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cavs, with Pau Gasol (wrist) unavailable.

Joining Bertans in the starting five will be Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge. Bertans can be hit-or-miss, but with a chance at 30 minutes tonight, he's someone to think about streaming or throwing out there as a DFS punt play. Joffrey Lauvergne should also see an uptick in minutes with Gasol out.
