Aron Baynes (ankle) will play vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday, as expected.
He sat out Friday's game but the injury wasn't severe, and he's returning at an ideal time vs. the Grizzlies' frontcourt. A handful of reserve minutes aren't enough to give Baynes any fantasy appeal. Mar 29 - 5:18 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) is probable to play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

Baynes is having a tough time battling injuries, but he'll be back. Still, he fights like a a younger man with nothing held back. The Spurs will have Baynes back in their precious armory on Sunday, but they will not need it.

Aron Baynes (ankle) will not play Friday vs. Dallas.

Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw, and Matt Bonner will have the opportunity for some extended minutes tonight, but with 13 games being played tonight, there should be much more appealing options out there to slide into your active roster.
Mar 27 - 12:40 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

America was robbed of being able to watch Baynes collide in the paint with Enes Kanter, Steven Adams and Mitch McGary tonight, but hopefully we will be able to watch him wreak havoc in the paint again soon. Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner might see a few extra minutes tonight, but fantasy owners shouldn't be too excited about that.

Aron Baynes (right ankle) will not play against the Mavs on Tuesday.

Getting hurt wasn't part of his plan and he will temporarily be excommunicated from the rotation. With Baynes out, Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw will have to fulfill coach Gregg Popovich's destiny.
Mar 23 - 5:16 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) left Saturday's game on crutches, leaving him very questionable for Tuesday against the Mavericks.

Regardless of whether or not he's available, Baynes isn't someone who impacts fantasy leagues. Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw (and maybe even Matt Bonner) will hold it down inside.
Mar 23 - 10:20 AM

Aron Baynes suffered a sprained ankle during Sunday's game vs. the Hawks, and he will not return.

Baynes will finish Sunday's game with a turnover and no other statistics to his credit. We'll consider Baynes questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Dallas, and if he's unable to go, there will be more minutes for Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner. Baynes belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.

Aron Baynes (ribs) will play against the Celtics on Friday.

Ah, we were wondering what was going to break first: Baynes' spirit or his body. He has seen his minutes take a nosedive and can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 20 - 6:52 PM

Aron Baynes (ribs) will not play vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

Baynes wasn't a big part of the rotation anyways, but his absence will leave a few more minutes available for guys such as Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner.
Mar 18 - 1:42 PM

Aron Baynes (ribs) will not play on Tuesday against the Knicks.

Manu Ginobili (ankle) has also been ruled out, but that goes without saying as he'll be out at least a week-to-ten days. Baynes' absence opens up a few extra minutes for Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw and possibly even the legend of Matt Bonner.
Mar 16 - 1:23 PM

Aron Baynes will not return to Sunday's game vs. Wolves due to a rib contusion.

He is not a factor in the rotation when the Spurs are at full strength so there will not be any fantasy implications if he has to miss any additional time. Baynes finished with two points, six boards and two assist in 11 minutes. Consider him questionable to play vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.
Mar 15 - 9:04 PM

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.
Feb 21 - 4:06 AM

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.
