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. Jan 25 - 10:16 PM

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

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 - F/C - Spurs

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 - F/C - Spurs

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 - F/C - Spurs

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.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan had 16 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three blocks in Wednesday's overtime win against the Pelicans.

He hit 6-of-12 shots and while his surprise DNPs are a thorn in his owner's collective sides, when he plays, he's usually on point. On a side note, the Spurs finished December with an 8-10 record, which is their first losing full month since Feb. 99. Additionally, the 10 losses were most in any month of the "Duncan era." Wow.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored 20 points against the Pelicans on Friday during a 97-90 loss, adding11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers.

He played 34 minutes in the second half of a back-to-back set. Believe it or not, the reigning champs are just 1-6 over their last seven games. Of course, they'll get it figured out soon. This might help Duncan get a couple extra games on the court, too.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Coach Gregg Popovich said everyone is good to go for Friday except for Tony Parker (hamstring), Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Patty Mills (shoulder).

The Spurs are not playing their best ball these days and are going to need a win against the Pelicans tonight more than usual. Duncan should see his normal playing time, but anything goes with Pop. We'll be on the lookout for the starting lineups a bit later.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, one block, and two turnovers during the Spurs' loss to the Thunder.

Duncan briefly left the game during the closing minutes of the fourth quarter with what looked to be a leg injury, but quickly returned and ended up closing out the game. We'll keep an eye out for any injury news, and although it seems minor, the Spurs are amid a back-to-back set, so he could be rested tomorrow. Duncan posted a plus/minus rating of minus-34 in this one, which is the worst plus/minus rating of his career (post-season or regular-season).

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan returned after being rested on Saturday and had 21 points and 12 rebounds in a win over the Clippers.

He's going to get plenty of rest from Gregg Popovich throughout the regular season, but any time he's going to play, he should be in your lineup, obviously.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will rest on Saturday and won't play vs. Dallas.

We saw this coming from a mile away, as Duncan and Ginobili played heavy minutes in their last two triple-overtime games. Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes will pick up the slack for Duncan, while Danny Green and Marco Belinelli will see a boost in minutes due to Ginobili's absence.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili may be held out of Saturday's game against Dallas in order to rest after Friday's second consecutive triple-overtime loss.

"It's different every night [with the injuries], so it keeps them out of rhythm and we are wearing some guys down," coach Gregg Popovich said. "Timmy [Duncan] is a big worry in that respect and so is Manu [Ginobili]." Duncan played 43 minutes on Saturday, while Ginobili played close to 30, so it is very likely that they will be held out. Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes would benefit the most in Duncan's absence, while Marco Belinelli and Danny Green would soak up Ginobili's minutes. Stay tuned.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan logged 43 minutes in the Spurs' second straight triple-overtime loss on Friday, scoring 32 points on 12-of-24 shooting with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks in the 129-119 thriller.

This was the first back-to-back triple overtime set of games for a team since the Baltimore Bullets did it in December of 1951. The Spurs have to get on a plane and go to Dallas for Saturday's game, and we'd be shocked if Duncan is allowed to play in that one. Then again, we were surprised when he played tonight so owners need to stay tuned.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Coach Gregg Popovich said he will not rest his players on Friday against the Blazers.

Wow. This is shocking considering the Spurs played a triple-overtime game on Wednesday. We can probably assume there will be a handful of rested players on Saturday, though. Of course, Pop may change his mind, so Duncan isn't a 100 percent lead-pipe lock to play.
