Aron Baynes gave the Nuggets fits on Tuesday, coming off San Antonio's bench for 15 points, four rebounds and one block in a mere 15 minutes.
He was a perfect 3-of-3 from the field and 9-of-9 from the FT line, breaking the career-high for FTs made which he set last month. Despite his per-minute efficiency, Baynes isn't getting enough playing time to be a viable fantasy option. Jan 20 - 11:55 PM

Aron Baynes played two minutes during a 108-93 win over the Wolves on Saturday.

He was ruled out according to multiple reports. Coach Gregg Popovich will do this from time to time. As for Baynes, he was born in the dark and molded by it, so his fantasy value will remain as dimly lit while Tim Duncan is out there.
Jan 11 - 1:59 AM

Aron Baynes (neck) will not play on Friday against the Suns.

Tiago Splitter will play a bit more tonight while Boris Diaw could also get more run. Baynes is not worth owning/using while Tim Duncan is active.
Jan 9 - 7:01 PM

Aron Baynes (neck spasms) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Suns.

Baynes isn't a major part of the Spurs rotation, so his absence doesn't mean much in fantasy leagues. Expect Jeff Ayres, Matt Bonner, and Boris Diaw to pick up some extra minutes if Baynes is unable to go.
Jan 9 - 11:48 AM

Aron Baynes (neck spasms) will not play in Tuesday's game against Detroit.

He was a late scratch for Tuesday's game, and we will provide further details as soon as we know more. Baynes is only averaging 15.6 minutes per game this season, so the Spurs will likely use a committee approach to fill the void.
Jan 6 - 9:00 PM

Aron Baynes scored a career-high 16 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers against the Mavericks on Saturday.

He keeps getting better in the starting lineup. In his previous five starts, Baynes averaged 10.8 points, 7.4 boards and 0.2 blocks in 26.4 minutes per game. It's becoming quite clear Baynes will be worth a look as a low-end fantasy option on the nights Tim Duncan gets his rest. On the other hand, he's not going to thrive while TD is playing, so Baynes is not worth owning in most leagues.

Aron Baynes will draw the start in place of Tim Duncan (rest) on Saturday.

Baynes is a solid rebounder, but he doesn't get many opportunities when the Spurs are healthy. However, the Spurs are fresh off a triple-overtime loss on Friday, so Baynes could be poised for big minutes against Dallas. He is worth a look in daily leagues.

Aron Baynes started against the Blazers on Monday with 15 points, nine rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

He looks more comfortable in his second full season. Baynes had to guard LaMarcus Aldridge for much of this game and he kept him in check on post-ups. Baynes should be a sneaky play on the nights Tim Duncan sits.

Aron Baynes will start on Monday against the Blazers.

Baynes gets the nod and could be a sneaky daily option, but there's not exactly a big body of work to support that statement. The Spurs will be without their Big Three and Tiago Splitter, so somebody has got to get the stats.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 09:01:00 PM

Aron Baynes started out fast in a start against the 76ers on Monday, finishing with 15 points, nine rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes.

He put up a double-double the last time Tim Duncan received a DNP-OLD on Nov. 5 and he put up another gem. Baynes is getting much better as an offensive guy and his jumper is coming around. When Duncan sits again, he'll be a solid plug-and-play in deep leagues and an option in daily.

Aron Baynes will start in place of Tim Duncan on Monday vs. the Sixers.

He'll join Cory Joseph, Danny Green, Boris Diaw and Kawhi Leonard in the first unit. Baynes is known most for being such a big body, and he's played just 16.4 minutes per game. Although, he did play 31 minutes on Nov. 6 the last time Duncan sat and had a double-double.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 06:26:00 PM

Aron Baynes played 18 minutes in a start against the Kings on Saturday with two points, two boards and three assists.

The plan to start Baynes didn't work in a losing effort. He's been somewhat effective as a second-unit big, but his minutes will be capped as long as Tim Duncan is healthy.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 02:32:00 AM

Aron Baynes will replace Matt Bonner in the starting lineup on Saturday vs. the Kings.

Looks like coach Popovich is just expressing himself once again as the Spurs roll with yet another new lineup. Baynes can be a double-double threat if he gets the minutes but it is too hard to guess knowing how often the rotation fluctuates. Baynes is someone for deep league owners to monitor while Bonner should not be owned in almost any league.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 10:17:00 PM

Aron Baynes started in place of Tim Duncan (rest) and had 12 points, 12 rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes on Thursday.

If you threw him into a daily lineup, the move paid off, but he has no fantasy value on most nights.
Thu, Nov 6, 2014 10:42:00 PM

Aron Baynes and Matt Bonner are starting for the Spurs on Thursday night against the Rockets.

With Tim Duncan (rest) out and Tiago Splitter (calf) out, the Spurs are starting a truly unique front line tandem. Neither player should be a consideration for fantasy owners in the short or long term.
