Dewayne Dedmon started on Wednesday and grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds with six points, three blocks and two steals in 26 minutes vs. the Mavericks.
Dedmon started in place of Pau Gasol (rest), who didn't even travel with the team. Dedmon has been a quality addition to the Spurs' bench this season but he's a marginal fantasy option with averages of 4.0 points, 5.2 boards and 1.4 blocks per game. Barring an injury to Gasol, he's nothing more than a blocks specialist. Dec 1 - 12:20 AM

Dewayne Dedmon will start vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

The starting gig puts Dedmon on the radar as a punt-C option in DFS, but this doesn't have any long-term ramifications.
Nov 30 - 7:22 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) played 17 minutes in his return to action on Tuesday vs. Orlando, scoring six points with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks.

Dedmon could have some sneaky value on the nights that the Spurs rest their studs, but standard-league owners should be able to find a better option on the wire like JaMychal Green or John Henson.
Nov 30 - 12:09 AM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) will be available to play Tuesday vs. Orlando.

He could see limited minutes off the bench, but he's not a viable target in most settings.
Nov 29 - 6:57 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) has been ruled out against the Wizards on Saturday.

He was upgraded to doubtful earlier today ,but the Spurs will hold him out for his fifth straight. It should be Davis Bertans and David Lee stepping up in the second unit tonight. Both of those two bench bigs are coming off great games, but are only deep-league options.
Nov 26 - 5:55 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) is doubtful for Saturday against the Wizards.

This would be his fifth game out of the lineup. While he's been out, it's been Davis Bertans stepping up with two solid games in a row. Dedmon was playing extremely well on defense, but he's not worth stashing in fantasy while he's hurt.
Nov 26 - 2:07 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) will not play Friday vs. Celtics.

Dedmon has missed four straight games, but did sound hopeful he might be able to return Saturday in Washington. He is averaging just 13 minutes a night and is not on the fantasy radar.
Nov 25 - 1:07 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) won't play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

He's traveling with the team, so maybe he can return to action Friday vs. Boston or Saturday vs. Washington. David Lee and Pau Gasol will continue to split his minutes.
Nov 22 - 5:27 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (knee) has officially been ruled out for Monday's game against the Mavericks.

Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Dedmon is "getting better all the time," so perhaps he can return to action Wednesday vs. the Hornets. Pau Gasol and David Lee will continue to split his minutes.
Nov 21 - 6:57 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left knee) is not expected to play on Monday vs. Dallas.

Pau Gasol and David Lee will continue to pick up a few extra minutes. Dedmon has a sprained left knee and this will be his third game in a row on the shelf, but he's considered day-to-day.
Nov 21 - 12:38 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left knee) will miss San Antonio's next two games.

Dedmon was forced out of Monday's game with the injury, and he'll now spend both Wednesday's game against the Kings and Saturday's game against the Lakers on the sidelines. David Lee and Pau Gasol will likely be splitting Dedmon's minutes.
Nov 15 - 5:54 PM

DeWayne Dedmon (left knee sprain) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Heat.

The severity is not known, but this a tough blow for the Spurs as Dedmon is likely going to miss some time. We should see some more David Lee off the bench, and it's possible Pau Gasol gets a slight bump in minutes as well.
Nov 14 - 10:36 PM

Dewayne Dedmon played 16 minutes and hit 2-of-4 shots for five points, six boards, a steal and two blocks on Saturday.

He's basically outplaying Pau Gasol and Gregg Popovich isn't afraid to run Dedmon out there frequently to give Gasol a rest. Dedmon is worth keeping a close eye on after averaging 6.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game through three of them.
Oct 30 - 12:57 AM

Dewayne Dedmon was terrific against the Kings in 24 minutes on Thursday, scoring 12 points with seven rebounds and four blocks.

He was awesome on defense and pulled down four important offensive boards. This game comes after a 17-minute, two-block game in the opener, so it's not too high on the fluke scale. Coach Gregg Popovich is the king of situational roles and he may have found his defensive center. Pau Gasol was torched throughout this game and played just 21 minutes. There will be games in which Dedmon falls off, but he should have a game like this one every three or four outings. If you need a big with boards in a 14-team league, give him a look. A DFS takeaway here is that Dedmon may be a sneaky play against elite scoring big men.
Oct 28 - 1:36 AM

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich spoke highly of Dewayne Dedmon.

"He’s a Bruce Bowen in a bigger guy’s body," Popovich said. "We want him to play D, rebound, block shots, run the floor and keep things together in that regard. We’re not going to have 14 plays we run for him." It's literally impossible for Dedmon to fill Boban Marjanovic's shoes, and he may not be in the rotation if David Lee plays a lot of center off the bench. Dedmon is not on the fantasy radar.
