Coach Gregg Popovich said he is undecided about who will start at point guard for the Spurs in Game 3 vs. Houston on Friday.
Coach Pop indicated that Dejounte Murray's role would not change, so Patty Mills is the most likely candidate to slide into the starting lineup. We will have to wait until Friday evening to find out. Mills makes for an intriguing DFS play on Friday. May 5 - 1:46 PM

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he won't rest anybody in the final two games of the season.

"Our execution at both games, defensively and offensively, was very poor," Popovich said on Saturday. "Nobody's going to rest. Everybody's going to play. We already rested everybody, and we have days in between now. It's like the playoffs, kind of. There's no back-to-backs. There's no bad travel or anything like that, so it's time for rhythm and that sort of thing. Hopefully we'll play better next week." The Spurs are locked in as the No. 2 seed, but barring a surprise, fantasy owners should be able to deploy Kawhi Leonard, Pau Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge.

Speaking with reporters on Monday, Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich hinted that he plans to rest some of his players over the final six games of the season.

The Spurs play four games in five nights, and six games total over the final nine days of the season. Also, they are essentially locked into the two seed. Kawhi Leonard said he doesn't want to rest, but he may not have a choice in the matter. "That’s a lot of games, a lot of activity for the end of the season," Popovich said. "I think we need to manage it wisely."

Gregg Popovich stated during a recent interview that he's not ready to retire from the NBA.

"You know what happened? I just got roped in," Popovich joked regarding his retirement plan. "I had to keep making promises. Manu [Ginobili] was going to sign a few years back and he was like, 'Are you going to be here?' Tony [Parker], then Kawhi [Leonard]. Then when we were recruiting LaMarcus [Aldridge], he was like, 'Are you going to be here?' it just goes on and on. So I guess I can never stop, I can never retire." And we hope he never does.

The Spurs are "actively" trying to move up in the draft according to NBADraft.net.

The Spurs currently have the No. 29 pick in the first round, but it's not clear what player they are hoping to get if they do move up. The Celtics, Nuggets, Suns, 76ers and Raptors have multiple first-round picks, so the Spurs should be able to move up depending on what they're willing to give up.

The Spurs have reportedly explored moving up in the first round of the 2016 NBA draft.

San Antonio currently owns the No. 29 overall selection in the upcoming draft, but perhaps they have their eyes on a late first-round target. Tim Duncan and David West both have player options for the upcoming season, and Boban Marjonavic is going to be an unrestricted free agent, so maybe the Spurs look to add some frontcourt help on draft day.

R.C. Buford has won the NBA's Executive of the Year Award.

There is going to be a lot of outcry over Portland's Neil Olshey not winning the award, but he finished second behind Buford. The top five, in order: Buford, Olshey, Golden State's Bob Myers, Toronto's Masai Ujiri and Charlotte's Rich Cho.

Coach Gregg Popovich said "everyone is going to play" on Thursday against the Warriors.

This obviously excludes Boris Diaw, but it sounds like the Spurs are going to try and derail the Warriors in Oakland. Trusting Coach Pop is cardinal sin in fantasy, but it sounds like his guys will be out there.

The Spurs will not rest players against the Raptors on Saturday.

It's a home game and the Spurs are not on a back-to-back set. Plus, they are now the only undefeated team at home.

Gregg Popovich will miss San Antonio's next two games.

Popovich is attending to a family medical situation, and he's expected to return on Thursday vs. Chicago. In the interim, Ettore Messina will step in for Pop.

Gregg Popovich admitted concern over the Spurs' defense without Tim Duncan (knee) in the lineup.

"He’s our base from which everything else emanates," Pop said. "Everybody else knows how to operate based on who he is and what he does. That’s my biggest concern in the game, really — him not being there for everybody to move around." Popovich went as far as to call Duncan "the center of the universe" in terms of San Antonio's defensive schemes, illustrating how important the veteran still is to what his team does.

Gregg Popovich will coach the Western Conference All-Stars.

He probably cares very little about this, as there are no cars involved. Steve Kerr was ineligible to coach the team because coaches cannot coach the All-Star game in back-to-back seasons.

Gregg Popovich was named the Western Conference Coach of the Month for December, but doesn't really care.

"I thought you should at least get a car or something," he said. "If there’s no car, I don’t give a damn." Obviously joking, Pop said that after winning his 16th Coach of the Month award after the Spurs went 14-2 and 10-0 at home. The Warriors are getting all the headlines, but the Spurs, who have won just two fewer games, might be just as good. Orlando's Scott Skiles won it for the East, garnering snickers causing fantasy owners of Magic players to wonder if a cruel joke was being played on them.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich will replace Mike Krzyzewski as Team USA's coach in 2017.

Exciting things are in store for Team USA and there really isn't a better candidate for the job. Popovich is obviously staying with the Spurs as well so there is no need for their fans to panic.

Gregg Popovich didn't travel with the Spurs for their preseason opener in Sacramento on Thursday.

Of course he didn't. The team will instead be coached by assistant Ettore Messina and it's unclear whether Pop will re-join the team for their next two exhibitions on Oct. 12 (in Miami) and Oct. 14 (in Atlanta). Brace yourself for a tidal wave of DNPs throughout the Spurs' preseason.
