Aron Baynes managed just four points and six rebounds over 25 minutes in Monday's loss to the Jazz.
Baynes had to deal with Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors but regardless it puts a damper on his small fantasy outburst. He can be watched from the waiver wire in most formats. Feb 24 - 1:17 AM

Aron Baynes double-doubled against the Warriors on Friday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

He's made three consecutive starts and has played in at least 24 minutes in all of them. In that span, Baynes averaged 12.7 points, 6.0 boards and 0.3 blocks. It's hard to tell how coach Gregg Popovich will play it here and he usually keeps us in the dark. Of course, Baynes was born in the dark, molded by it, and didn't see the light until he was a man.

Aron Baynes played 26 minutes against the Clippers during a 119-115 loss on Thursday, scoring 14 points with four rebounds and one block.

He played 24 minutes in his last game against the Pistons, which was also a start like tonight. While this isn't likely going to stick and it probably has a lot to do with the matchups, it's worth a mention for owners in very deep leagues.
Feb 20 - 1:56 AM

Aron Baynes will start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He'll start with Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Tim Duncan. This is a fairly meaningless update besides the fact that Tiago Splitter is more likely to be popped out of the lineup. Baynes is not a great option while Duncan is active.
Feb 11 - 6:41 PM

Aron Baynes played just 13 minutes in another start on Sunday against the Raptors, finishing with two points and five boards.

He has started the last three games for the Spurs, but he's averaged just over 15 minutes per game during that span. Head coach Gregg Popovich tends to mix up his rotations frequently, so it would seem that it's just a matter of time before Baynes returns to the bench. It's safe to leave Baynes on the wire outside of ridiculously deep leagues.
Feb 8 - 10:38 PM

Aron Baynes will start against the Magic on Wednesday.

He'll start next to Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Tim Duncan. Coach Gregg Popovich changing his starting lineup is nothing new, so there is very little reason to alter any player outlooks tonight.
Feb 4 - 6:52 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 07:20:00 PM

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.
