Tim Ducan's friend and former teammate, Antonio Daniels, thinks that Duncan will return to the Spurs next season.
While Daniels' opinion doesn't quantify as anything concrete, it's all we have to go on as Duncan has been mum about his future since the Spurs lost their playoff series to the Clippers. "I would be very surprised if he retired," Daniels said. "As long as he’s staying at a level where he feels like he’s relevant and competing, I can’t see it." We'll pass along updates as soon as more information becomes available, but the 39-year-old will still be worth a mid-round fantasy pick if he does decide to return. May 7 - 11:16 AM

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan was noncommittal when asked about possibly retiring after the Spurs lost Game 7 to the Clippers on Saturday night.

"I'm not making any statements," Duncan said. While it's hard to imagine Duncan retiring after such a remarkable performance this series, we do have to consider that he is 39 years old. Duncan also added that he could see "the light at the end of the tunnel," but it doesn't necessarily sound like he will rush into a decision. If he does decide to return to the Spurs, he will still be worthy of a mid-round selection after averaging 17.9 points, 11.1 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals in the postseason. We will pass along additional updates as soon as we know more.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan played unbelievably well against the Clippers during a thrilling 111-109 loss on Saturday, scoring 27 points with 11 rebounds and no turnovers in 37 minutes.

It was an amazing game to arguably the best first-round series ever. Duncan clearly has several miles left on his tires and it's hard to imagine him retiring after this season. He's 39 years old, but he might be playing until he's 45 based on how awesome he was tonight. He'll be someone to target in the middle rounds of drafts next season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan remained modest when asked how he's managed to continue to be an effective player on the basketball court even into his later years.

"I’m just trying to keep pace," Duncan said after Game 2's win. "I don’t have a secret. I’m in a great system, I’m on a great team and I’m not asked to do what I used to do. I’m asked to play a role, and I’m happy to play a role. I’m just trying to be as consistent as I can for my teammates." When all is said and done, Duncan will go down as one of the best power forwards to ever play the game. He's been a key piece to all of San Antonio's five championships, he ranks 14th on the all-time scoring list, and he's currently the only player in NBA history to have 9,000+ playoff minutes. Amazing.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan had 22 points (8-of-13 FGs and 6-of-10 FTs), 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in a losing effort on Sunday, as the Spurs fell at home 105-114.

Duncan got off to a slow start but he was as terrific as ever today, and he racked up a few more records that highlight his longevity -- he's the only player to log 9,000+ minutes in the NBA playoffs, and passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for third place in most postseason appearances (trailing only Robert Horry and Derek Fisher).

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan said he was "a little sore, and a little tired" after logging 44 minutes against the Clippers during Game 2 on Wednesday, but he's ready to go for Friday's Game 3.

The 38-year-old was absolutely fantastic during Wednesday's Game 2 win, putting up 28 points with 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block. While it's a bit unlikely he can match his scoring total from Wednesday, he may have to shoulder a bit more of the offensive workload with Tony Parker (Achilles) hurting, so he's someone to consider in daily leagues.

Tim Duncan looked like he was in his prime during the Game 2 111-107 overtime victory over the Clippers, scoring 28 points with 11 boards, four assists, two steals and one block in 44 minutes.

He's 38 years old. Duncan only played 30 minutes in Game 1, but coach Gregg Popovich just couldn't keep the Hall of Famer on the bench. Duncan also became the fifth player in NBA history to score 5,000 postseason points (Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal). Tonight was also his 100th 20-10 game of his playoff career. His playoff resume is one of a kind.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan finished Sunday's Game 1 defeat with 11 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 30 minutes.

Duncan told reporters before Sunday's game, "We've been through just about every situation possible, so we have the capacity and we have the experience to be able to start a series on the road." They now need to win a game in L.A. to advance in the playoffs, and the defending champs will try to leverage their capacity and experience to even the series on Wednesday.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan had 15 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans.

Kawhi Leonard also double-doubled with 14 points and 10 boards, Tony Parker scored 23, and Boris Diaw hit 10-of-14 shots for 20 points, five rebounds and five assists. The Spurs fell out of the Top 4 in the West, meaning they may not have home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. They'll either be the No. 5 or 6 seed, depending on the outcome of the Memphis-Indy game, but they would still be the home team if they are the No. 5 seed, as they have a better record than Portland.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs will deploy their normal starting lineup vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

There was never any doubt about it. Gregg Popovich admitted that he'd prefer to bench all of his key players, but the No. 2 seed Spurs could fall as far as the No. 6 seed during a wild Wednesday to conclude the regular season. They control their own fate, as a win would secure the No. 2 seed, so Spurs' owners can comfortably start Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard and company.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan's brilliant play continued on Sunday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in only 26 minutes vs. the Suns.

The venerable Duncan made 7-of-11 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs, and he's been a model of efficiency since the All-Star break -- among other advanced metrics, he has a 60.3 true shooting percentage, a rebound rate of 16.6 percent, and a net rating of +14.3. The Spurs took the No. 2 seed tonight but they're in a close playoff-position battle with the Clippers and Rockets, so it's probable that Duncan will play in Wednesday's regular-season finale.

Tim Duncan scored 29 points on 12-of-15 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in the Spurs' road win over the Rockets on Friday.

Duncan shut down James Harden on the game's final play and folks argued both sides of whether or not he fouled him on the last-second block. What the first ballot Hall of Famer has done this season as a top-20 play is nothing short of extraordinary.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored just six points against the Rockets on Wednesday with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks.

It's a very solid line with the exception of the scoring. Suddenly, the Spurs are on a nine-game winning streak and are within striking distance of the No. 2 seed. If they're going for it, Duncan may not be rested in the final three games. The Spurs play on Friday, Sunday and Wednesday.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan was his typical efficient self on Tuesday, racking up 12 points, nine boards, three assists, one steal and four blocks in a mere 23 minutes of action.

As soon as Manu Ginobili took the court tonight, history was made -- Duncan, Ginobili and Tony Parker have now played the most games in NBA history as a trio (730), passing previous record-holders Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish. The Spurs' run of success is incredible to behold, and they're once again peaking at the right time this year with the playoffs around the corner.
