Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili did not travel for Friday's game against the Denver Nuggets.
They're on the front end of a back-to-back set and should be all set for Saturday's home game against the Hawks. With Duncan out, the Spurs should be using a combination of Matt Bonner, Boris Diaw and David West next to LaMarcus Aldridge. Nov 26 - 10:03 PM

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan grabbed nine rebounds with four assists and two blocks on Wednesday, but he scored only two points on 1-of-4 shooting.

Even if he hadn't contributed in other categories, Duncan has a pocketful of 'free passes' after his excellent play to begin the season. The Spurs' bench also struggled to score tonight, with Manu Ginobili and Patty Mills combining for 12 points on 3-of-19 shooting, but the Spurs still held on for an 88-83 win.

Tim Duncan did not grab a rebound during a loss to the Pelicans on Friday, scoring six points with two assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes

He's played 1,343 career games and this was his first time he's gone without a rebound. Duncan will start a new streak on Saturday against the Grizzlies, but we don't think he'll be able to match the one that ended tonight.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan posted 12 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal and a season-high six blocks in Wednesday's win vs. the Nuggets.

A long time ago we stopped predicting when Duncan's game would substantially decline. His steady mid-round value will take a leap after this vintage performance, and the only real risk for fantasy owners is DNP-CDs. He only missed five games last season, however, and has yet to sit out in 2015-16.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan needed just 23 minutes to secure a double-double in Saturday's win over the Kings, scoring 11 points with 14 boards and two assists.

For a guy who will be turning 40 before the end of the season, Duncan's still got it. His numbers are down across the board as expected and his owners will have to worry about him sitting out some games down the stretch, but the fact that he can still return mid-round value at this age is incredible.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan racked up eight points, 12 rebounds and five assists on Wednesday, but he also committed four of the Spurs' 20 turnovers.

"I'm still trying to figure [my role] out," Duncan said on Tuesday. "I'm not really sure what it is yet, but I'm trying to figure it out." San Antonio was minus-20 in points off turnovers tonight and they're not quite clicking offensively, but they still own a 3-2 record as they head home to face the Hornets on Saturday.

Tim Duncan scored 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks in Monday's win over the Knicks.

Death, taxes and Tim Duncan beating his ADP in fantasy leagues.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan shot just 3-of-9 from the field during Sunday's win over the Celtics, finishing the game with seven points, nine rebounds, five assists, one block and four turnovers through 29 minutes.

Duncan has conceded some of his touches to LaMarcus Aldridge this season, and he has gotten off to a slow start as a result. The Spurs will likely work out the kinks as they adjust to playing with Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge as the focal point of the offense, but Duncan could struggle to return to last year's averages of 13.9 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game as he enters his 19th season of professional basketball.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan logged 13 minutes during Wednesday's exhibition, scoring four points with one rebound, two assists and one block.

Duncan was excused from shootaround for "some personal business" but it's obviously not a concern. He earned another All-Star nod last season at 38 years old and remains a solid top-75 fantasy target, which is a testament to his phenomenal conditioning and, yes, fundamentals.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan (rest) will not play on Thursday vs. the Kings.

So it begins. The Spurs will be able to monitor Duncan's minutes much better this season with LaMarcus Aldridge and David West around, so prospective owners can expect a small dip in production and plenty of maintenance days. Even at 39 years old, Duncan is still a nice mid-round target.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan said he is excited about the additions of LaMarcus Aldridge and David West.

"Wow, it's unbelievable," Duncan said. "I would not have imagined it would turn out this way. We've got a bunch of very unselfish guys and guys that know how to play the game, and I think [LaMarcus Aldridge] and [David West] and all those guys kind of fit into that category, so it's not going to be reinventing the wheel. We're going to keep our system the same as we have over the years and plug in new parts and see how it works." Duncan will shift to center to accommodate Aldridge, but his workload will inevitably decrease during the regular season as the Spurs will want to keep him fresh for the playoffs.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan was voted the 2014-15 Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award on Wednesday.

The award recognizes the player deemed the best teammate based on selfless play, on- and off-court leadership as a mentor and role model to other NBA players, and commitment and dedication to the team. Those qualities very accurately describe the 39-year-old, and luckily for basketball fans everywhere we'll get to witness at least one more season with Duncan donning the Silver and Black. He averaged 13.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 blocks per game last season, while also making it through 77 games. With LaMarcus Aldridge in town, there's a chance he's given some more rest days, but he should still be able to get close to last year's averages.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan's new deal with the Spurs includes a no-trade clause.

The Spurs would never consider trading the one they call Duncan, but it's still a nice gesture to give him the security that he needs. Duncan is expected to slide over to center in order to accommodate the acquisition of LaMarcus Aldridge, but it shouldn't impact his fantasy value. He averaged 13.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.0 blocks during the 2014-15 season, and it's possible that he is able to match those numbers this season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs are finalizing a two-year deal with Tim Duncan, according to David Aldridge of

Duncan's $10.4 million deal includes a player option for the second year and will pay him $5 million for his first year. With the Spurs signing of LaMarcus Aldridge, Duncan should be able to peel back on his 28.9 minute per game average from last season, but he shouldn't see too much of a dip in his 2014-15 averages of 13.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.0 blocks.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan said he will definitely return for the 2015-16 season.

"I'll be on the court next year," Duncan said on Thursday. While this was widely assumed to be the case, it's nice to hear Duncan officially commit to a return for next season. He's an unrestricted free agent, but has been part of the Spurs' courting of LaMarcus Aldridge so it's all but official that he'll be back with the Spurs for at least the 2015-15 season. The only question left is how much of a hometown discount Duncan will give the Spurs when he re-signs and that decision presumably hinges on if Aldridge chooses the Spurs.
