Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all played on Monday, and all three could play in Wednesday's finale as part of Gregg Popovich's "controlled rest" plan.
"You can't just sit for a week and then wait for Sunday and expect to be ready," Ginobili said. "We need to play, go up and down and feel good about ourselves." While their minutes and production might not be through the roof, it does sound like there's a decent chance most of the Spurs will be in action in a meaningless final game against the Lakers.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan played 30 minutes against the Rockets on Monday, scoring 12 points with nine boards and two assists.

The Spurs had nothing to play for and they still gave Duncan solid minutes. They will close out the regular season on Wednesday vs. the Lakers and we would be very surprised to see him in the lineup for that one. His fantasy owners can make a proactive cut if there is anything promising on the wire.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will start against the Rockets on Monday night.

It's Bizarro World in Houston with the Spurs' Big Three all playing while Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Tiago Splitter and Patty Mills are sitting out. Duncan should be in all lineups tonight, but we would be a little shocked to see him play on Wednesday.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Gregg Popovich hinted that he won't rest anyone during Monday's game vs. Houston.

Pop emphasized the need to be sharp and in sync for the playoffs, and with two games left on the schedule he may ease up on his extra-cautious approach to resting players. We should get more concrete information after the Spurs warm up for Monday's game, so check back later tonight for updates.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will not play against the Suns on Friday.

Duncan played 39 minutes on Thursday and there was really no way coach Gregg Popovich would have played him that much and put him back out there tonight. He'll likely get at least one more game of rest in the final week, so he's not necessarily a must-own player. Expect Boris Diaw and Tiago Splitter to pick up the slack.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan (rest, knee) is not expected to play in Friday's game against the Suns.

We're not worried about the knee tweak as Duncan played through it Thursday night. But given that he ended up logging a season-high 39 minutes, he's a near lock to sit out the second half of this back-to-back. Boris Diaw will likely draw the start at power forward.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan suffered a knee injury in the first quarter and was able to return, finishing with 20 points, 15 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

His 39 minutes were his second-highest of the season, so the smart money is on coach Greg Popovich sitting Duncan down on Friday night. The team may also sit him out in the finale on Wednesday, which means he could be looking at just two games the rest of the way. His fantasy owners should start thinking about an alternate plan.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan hyper-extended his right knee during Thursday's game, but he's fine and is expected to return.

The Spurs wouldn't let Duncan anywhere near the court if he were in any danger of aggravating the injury, so owners shouldn't fret unless a pessimistic update arrives after the game.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan played only 20 minutes in Tuesday's surprising 19-point loss to the Wolves, scoring 10 points with six rebounds, one assist and four blocks.

Duncan's per-minute numbers have been phenomenal this season and he's retained top-40 fantasy value despite playing under 29 minutes per game. With a relatively low seven DNPs this season, his value has actually increased on a cumulative basis. He's crushing pre-season expectations and is poised for another deep run into the playoffs, thanks largely to Gregg Popovich's careful season-long monitoring of his playing time.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan made just 5-of-15 from the field for 17 points vs. the Thunder on Thursday to go with eight boards, one assist and two blocks in 28 minutes.

His minutes dropped to 28.4 per game in March which was down from 31.0 in February. The Spurs only have one back-to-back set left this season on Apr. 10 and 11, so Duncan may only miss one more game. That said, it’s possible he missed half of the remaining six games.
Apr 3 - 11:04 PM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Tiago Splitter will all be active for Thursday's matchup with the Thunder.

Manu Ginobili will be rested in the second half of a back-to-back. It never hurts to check back for possible updates prior to tip-off but Duncan, Parker and co. appear safe to keep in active lineups.
Apr 3 - 7:00 PM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan is hopeful that Gregg Popovich will let him play on Thursday, since he only logged 20 minutes in Wednesday's road win.

Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard also played under 30 minutes, while Tiago Splitter logged just 11 minutes off the bench, but that doesn't mean that necessarily mean that Pop will play all of them vs. the Thunder. The Spurs have won 19 games despite constant fluctuations in their roster, just another testament to their efficiency and consistency under Pop.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Coach Gregg Popovich said everyone is available to play against the Pelicans on Saturday except Matt Bonner (calf) and Danny Green (foot).

Well, this does comes as a big surprise since playing in a back-to-back against a weak team usually spells trouble for players to get rest. Fantasy owners can use this information how they like and it's still possible Pop limits his guys.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan shot 9-of-15 from the field for 20 points during Friday's easy 133-102 win over the Nuggets with eight boards, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes.

Duncan didn't play in the last 17 minutes of this game and exited with the score at 81-59. The rest might have been nice tonight, but there's still a good chance he'll sit out on Saturday vs. the Pelicans.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan continued his magnificent season on Wednesday during a 108-103 win over the Nuggets, making 12-of-20 from the field for 29 points with 13 boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 36 minutes.

It's just his seventh 20-10 game of the season and his 36 minutes played were his most since Feb. 18. Duncan is likely looking at some DNPs coming up and chances are he'll get one on Friday or Saturday. He usually sits on the back ends of back-to-backs, but that doesn't mean a heck of a lot.
