Aron Baynes (ribs) returned to action on Friday in a four-minute stint.
Baynes could theoretically get some run if Pop starts Popping people left and right, but there's no way he should be on fantasy rosters. Apr 12 - 2:27 AM

Date:

Aron Baynes (non-displaced rib fracture) will not play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

For a man his size, it's surprising to see him even break a rib. Baynes has been a beast in the paint for the Spurs and looked great over the summer, but he has plenty of learning to do in the NBA and is years away from fantasy value.
Apr 6 - 6:00 PM

Aron Baynes (rib) will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He cracked a rib over the weekend and this will be his second consecutive game out of the lineup. After an impressive Summer League, Baynes hasn't really done much in his time with the Spurs this year.
Apr 2 - 3:57 PM

Aron Baynes (cracked rib) will not play vs. Indiana on Monday.

He must have hurt himself during Saturday's game, or at practice on Sunday, but his absence won't have an appreciable effect on fantasy lineups since he's averaging just nine minutes per game in March. We'll consider him day-to-day until the Spurs provide a timetable.
Mar 31 - 12:22 PM

Updating a previous item, Aron Baynes is playing against the Suns on Friday.

He wasn't expected to play and the Spurs may have changed their minds on him. Baynes still has no fantasy value.
Feb 21 - 10:55 PM

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

It will be his second consecutive game out of the lineup and the team probably won't need him with Tiago Splitter back and looking good. Baynes can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Aron Baynes (knee) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

His knee contusion must really be bothering him to not play in a game with Tim Duncan sitting out. Jeff Ayres figures to backup Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw tonight.
Feb 19 - 9:08 PM

Aron Baynes made his second start of the season on Monday with four points, six boards and two turnovers against the Pistons.

He likely was in the starting lineup in an effort to combat Andre Drummond's size, but he didn't really have it tonight. While Baynes was able to push guys around in Las Vegas Summer League, he's not having such luck with the big boys. He's not really worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 10 - 10:31 PM

Aron Baynes will start against the Pistons on Monday night.

Of course he will. Coach Gregg Popovich has started some of the wildest lineups of all this year -- like Marco Belinelli at power forward -- and Baynes will make his second start of the season. In his first start he only played nine minutes, so there's little reason to get excited about this.
Feb 10 - 7:36 PM

Aron Baynes came off the bench for nine points and eight rebounds on 4-of-8 shooting in 17 minutes on Saturday.

The eight boards were a season high and while his play tonight was encouraging, it's hard to imagine him doing much on most nights. He is kind of hot right now though, averaging 11.5 points and 7.0 rebounds over his last two games, so owners in extremely deep leagues might want to take notice.

Aron Baynes (leg) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

He has a strain in his lower leg and it's unclear how many minutes he will see tonight. Baynes might be a DNP-CD (coach's decision) or he could build off his 14-point game from Tuesday. He's still not worth owning in almost any league.

Aron Baynes will not play against the Wolves on Friday due to left posterior tibialis strain.

The strain in his lower leg will keep him out of his second game in a row. It's too bad since he was coming off a career-high 14 points on Tuesday. Baynes is really just called into action while the Spurs are missing players due to rest or injury, so he's not worth owning in almost any leagues.

Aron Baynes (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

It's too bad after Baynes had a great game on Tuesday with 14 points against the Raptors. Baynes doesn't really have much of a game beyond five feet of the basket, but he certainly has an NBA body and was a very tough cover in Summer League. Boris Diaw and Jeff Ayres will get most of the minutes vs. to Tim Duncan.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 07:44:00 PM

Aron Baynes scored a career-high 14 points against the Raptors on Tuesday with six boards and one assist in 21 minutes.

He scored 10 points in the first half and he almost matched his entire season output of 17 points before tonight. Baynes was very impressive in Las Vegas Summer League and has the size to be a great low-post player. Obviously, he has a long way to go and is off the radar in all leagues.
Tue, Dec 10, 2013 09:27:00 PM

Aron Baynes showed off on the national preseason stage on Thursday with 16 points, six boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks in just 21 minutes.

He's a mountain of a man and he pushed guys around while at Las Vegas Summer League. Baynes is no lock to be in the rotation and would likely need Tim Duncan or Tiago Splitter to miss time in order to have value. The Aussie went 322nd in a recent expert draft.
