Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting with 10 rebounds and three blocks, and along with Kawhi Leonard he was the only Spurs player with a passable line in Monday's loss to the Jazz.

Leonard wasn't great but he did manage eight points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block in his 25 minutes. Everywhere else fantasy owners probably reached for a trash can to hurl into, and this represents a buy low window for the whole lot of them. People have been counting out the Spurs for well over a decade.

Tim Duncan scored just eight points against the Warriors during a 110-99 loss on Friday, adding three boards, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

Duncan is playing 28 minutes per game on the second half of back-to-back sets, but coach Gregg Popovich said he might lower his minutes tonight. Although, Duncan didn't play in the final 18:37 of this game because the Spurs were down 14 at the time. The Spurs next back-to-back starts on Friday Feb. 27.

Tim Duncan will play fewer minutes on Friday night against the Warriors.

Everyone is available for the second half of a back-to-back set. Duncan should have his hands full after putting up a gem in a loss to the Clippers.

Tim Duncan was awesome on the offensive end against the Clippers on Thursday, making 12-of-14 from the field and all five free throws for 30 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

What a game with a true shooting percentage of 92.6, but it wasn't enough in a loss. He passed Alex English tonight to move up to No. 16 on the all-time scoring list. The Spurs get a back-to-back against the Warriors on Friday, but Duncan should be ready to go based on how he's played in every game since Dec. 20. The Spurs have a smaller margin of error now, currently sitting in the seventh seed in the Western Conference.

Tim Duncan logged his 25th double-double of the season in Sunday's loss to the Raptors, finishing with 12 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two steals in 32 minutes.

He had a costly turnover in the closing moments of the game on an inbounds pass, but it's not necessarily fair to blame him for the loss after such an impressive stat line. He has averaged 29.2 minutes over his last five games, and head coach Gregg Popovich will probably start monitoring his minutes more closely after the All-Star break with playoffs right around the corner. Aside from the risk of occasional DNPs, Duncan is going to be a double-double threat every time he touches the floor. On a side note, Duncan played in his 1,300th career game tonight which ties him with Ray Allen for 14th-most in NBA history.

Tim Duncan had 26 points, 10 rebounds, an assist, steal and block on 11-of-17 shooting in Wednesday's win over Orlando.

He had scored just four and 12 points in his previous two games, and the 26 points were his second-highest total of the season. He hasn't had a day off since Dec. 20, so he's due to get Popped soon. Be ready for it when it happens.

Coach Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday that he believed Tim Duncan would return next season no matter what happens.

"No matter how [the season] ends, I think Timmy is going to look at [retirement] again," said coach Popovich. "And if you ask me, my guess is that he'll go for another one because he has been so consistent this season." Duncan is 38-years-old but you wouldn't be able to tell by the way he is playing. He is currently averaging 14.5 points and 10 boards in 30.2 minutes per game, and it's pretty evident that he still has a lot left in the tank. When it's all said and done, Duncan will go down as one of the greatest power forwards to ever play the game.

Tim Duncan scored just four points in a loss to the Clippers on Saturday, adding eight boards, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

He tied his season-low for points in a game tonight, and it was obvious that he struggled to keep up with the athleticism of the Clippers. While Duncan will play much better than this on most nights, don't be surprised if coach Gregg Popovich starts to reduce his minutes in order to keep him fresh for the playoffs.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan double-doubled in a win over the Bucks on Sunday, scoring 20 points with 11 boards, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 31 minutes.

A good game was long overdue for Duncan, as this was his first double-double since Jan. 16, and the first time he had scored 20 points in a game since Dec. 26. Duncan's minutes will likely start to trend down as the Spurs attempt to keep him fresh for the playoffs, and there is no question that he will likely pick up some more DNPs before the season ends. Having said that, Duncan is still a must-start player when active, but his owners should go ahead and get in the habit of checking the injury report before setting any lineups.

Coach Gregg Popovich said everyone except Marco Belinelli (groin) will play on Friday against the Lakers.

This is your weekly "Spurs are not resting guys on the second night of a back-to-back set" update. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker didn't look great on Thursday in Chicago and they'll look to get it turned around at home vs. the Kobe-less Lakers.

Tim Duncan scored six points with seven rebounds and two assists during a blowout 104-81 loss in Chicago on Thursday.

The Spurs came out flat to start the second half and Duncan didn't play at all in the fourth quarter. Duncan may have turned in his worst three-game stretch of the season, averaging just 11.0 points, 6.0 boards and 0.7 blocks on 44.0 percent from the field in that span. His owners will want to make sure he's a go against the Lakers on Friday considering he hasn't been rested in over one month.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will be playing back-to-back sets for now.

"If it was later in the year, we’d be doing that," Popovich said of resting Duncan and Ginobili on the second night of back-to-back sets. "Now it’s just a minutes thing. They’re not going to play 30 minutes a night, that’s for sure." The tricky part for fantasy owners becomes deciphering when Pop decides that it's "later in the year," but fantasy owners can count on Duncan and Ginobili suiting up for back-to-back sets for the time being.

Tim Duncan made history during Tuesday's game, scoring 11 points and grabbing 12 rebounds to pass Karl Malone for 5th place in career double-doubles.

Duncan now has 815 double-doubles and trails four reasonably auspicious players -- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elvin Hayes, Moses Malone and Wilt Chamberlain. The 38-year-old has missed only five games this season, making him a solid top-40 fantasy value on a cumulative basis. Congratulations to all those who gambled on him on draft day.

Tim Duncan scored a season-low four points against the Wizards on Saturday with nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes.

The Spurs were really lucky to get a win here with so many of their key guys struggling. Duncan has been great and had himself a nice December, averaging 17.9 points, 11.5 boards, 2.2 blocks and 1.1 steals. As long as he's active, you have to start him.
