Tim Duncan scored seven points (3-of-4 FGs) with two boards, two assists and three blocks in 19 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday.
This was his 245th playoff game, moving him past Robert Horry for second place on the all-time list with only Derek Fisher (259) left to beat. Papa Duncan had a pretty quiet series and averaged just 5.3 points, 7.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.7 blocks in the first three games, but the Spurs will likely need a lot more from him in the second round of the playoffs (likely against the Thunder).

Tim Duncan scored six points with three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

It's a little odd to not see Duncan carrying his team this season. This was his 154th win in the playoffs, which ties him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for third all time. He's also going to have a chance to top Derek Fisher's record of 161 games this season, but the Spurs will have to get wins in the Western Conference Finals.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored three points (0-of-1 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) in Tuesday's win over the Grizzlies, adding nine boards, four assists, one block and one steal in 26 minutes.

For the first time in his postseason career, Duncan didn't even attempt a shot in the first half. This game was another blowout, so Duncan didn't really need to overexert himself anyways. He's getting some valuable rest against the injury-ravaged Grizzlies, so at least he will be fresh for the next round.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan said he doesn't want a farewell tour before he retires.

While it's unclear when Duncan will retire, a farewell tour won't be part of the process. "Not my deal," Tim Duncan said. "Not my style." The Big Fundamental isn't the player he once was, but he's still a big part of the Spurs title hopes and we could see him go out on top if the Spurs are able to win it all this season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan finished the Spurs' blowout win on Sunday with seven points, 11 rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 22 minutes.

Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and David West were all back in action after sitting out the Spurs' regular-season finale as a precaution. None of San Antonio's starters played more than Kawhi Leonard's 29 minutes due to the lopsided score, which is an ideal outcome for Gregg Popovich's veteran team.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

LaMarcus Aldridge (finger, rest) and David West (rest) will be joining Duncan on the sidelines for Wednesday's meaningless game, which will open up minutes for Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner and Boban Marjanovic. Diaw is on the radar as a potential punt play in DFS.
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored 12 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one block in Tuesday's 102-98 overtime win over the Thunder, but he will rest on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

Duncan has been a disappointment to his fantasy owners this season due to several DNPs and sub-par numbers by his standard, so he likely won't be anything more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts next season, assuming he doesn't retire. To be fair, the legend is turning 40 in a couple weeks. Boris Diaw and Boban Marjanovic should see plenty of minutes on Wednesday.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder.

With Duncan returning to action tonight, it's a safe bet that he will not play on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks. Duncan is averaging just 8.3 points, 5.8 boards and 1.5 blocks in April, so he's not a great fantasy option.
Apr 12 - 7:20 PM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan (rest) will not play on Sunday vs. the Warriors, while David West will start in his place.

So much for the Spurs not resting any starters. Every other starter is active tonight, so the Spurs will be close to full strength as they try to remain undefeated at home this season. West isn't a great option in DFS because the Spurs will likely use a committee approach to absorb Duncan's minutes.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

It's worth noting that Tim Duncan played 34 minutes on Friday vs. the Nuggets while the rest of the Spurs' starters rested, but coach Gregg Popovich said he isn't planning on sitting guys tonight. Duncan has struggled vs. the Warriors in the past because he doesn't match up well with them, so he's a shaky option in fantasy tonight.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan played 34 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block.

Well, coach Gregg Popovich wasn't lying. He said before the game he wanted to test Duncan's conditioning and the future Hall of Famer came through. While the Spurs are downplaying the importance of going 41-0 at home, Duncan should play on Sunday against the Warriors. Expect the Dubs to attack him in pick-and-roll a lot.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan doesn't have a minutes cap for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

Coach Gregg Popovich said he wants to keep Duncan's conditioning up, which is unusual reasoning for him. It's still possible Duncan doesn't play as much as he usually does, so he's a risky player to use. Boban Marjanovic isn't quite as appealing with this news.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan is expected to rest on Friday against the Nuggets.

He did not look good on Thursday in a bad matchup against an up-tempo Warriors team. We might see some Boban Marjanovic on Friday.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs aren't expected to rest any healthy players vs. the Warriors on Thursday.

Owners should look for confirmation on Thursday afternoon, but it appears safe to deploy Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs trail the Warriors by 3.5 games with five games left (four for the Warriors) but the teams face each other twice, so San Antonio could conceivably steal the No. 1 seed with one final surge. Thursday's game on TNT should live up to the network's slogan, "We Know Drama."

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan returned from a rest day to finish Wednesday's 100-92 win vs. the Pelicans with eight points, nine rebounds and three blocks.

Duncan is a prime candidate for DNP-CDs down the stretch, as usual, which makes him a tough guy to own. He's missed 20 games so far but when he's on the court his owners haven't had cause for complaint, as he's averaged 8.5 points, 7.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 blocks per game, with solid percentages.
