Tim Duncan has officially exercised his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season, but his future is still unclear.
Duncan is 40 years old and is seriously considering retirement, but this is still a good sign for the Spurs. The Spurs aren't going to give Duncan a timetable to make a decision, so it may be a while before we get a firm answer. If he does return for his 20th season in the NBA, he won't be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues after averaging just 8.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks last season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs are planning to have coach Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan board a plane to pitch Kevin Durant to join the Spurs in July.

For the meetings with the Spurs and Warriors, Durant is expected to have his agent and family with him. Durant and Kawhi Leonard would make for quite the interesting pair, and perhaps the transformation of Kawhi is a great selling point. Of course, the Spurs have been a staple in the NBA playoffs for two decades.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan has until June 29 to decide on whether he'll pick up his player option for the 2016-17 season.

With the June 29 deadline to pick up his $6.4 million player option, we should know soon whether or not Duncan will retire or return for one more season. While anything in possible, the 40-year-old looked like a shell of himself in the 2015-16 postseason and it wouldn't be a surprise if that was the end of Duncan's illustrious career.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan's 19 points vs. the Thunder in Game 6 weren't enough as the Spurs were eliminated from the playoffs.

The legendary power forward added five boards and one block in 34 minutes, shooting 7-of-14 from the field. Duncan scored a total of 17 points in the first five games of the series, but he proved tonight that he still has some gas left in the tank. The 40-year-old veteran has a player option for next season, but it's very possible that he just played the last NBA game of his career. When asked after the game if he will retire, Duncan said "I'll get to that when I get out of here and figure life out."

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Thunder.

Duncan has really struggled during San Antonio's second-round series, owning meager averages of 3.0 points and 3.8 rebounds on 31.6 percent shooting through 18.8 minutes of floor time. He'll start tonight, but it's unlikely he exceeds the 18-minute mark.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan racked up four early fouls on Sunday, finishing the Spurs' road loss scoreless with three rebounds in 12 minutes.

The 40-year-old veteran has struggled throughout this series against the athleticism of Steven Adams, 18 years his junior. That resulted in more playing time for Boris Diaw (11 points in 21 minutes) and David West (eight points, seven boards in 25 minutes), a trend that's unlikely to change as the series shifts back to San Antonio.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan made 1-of-8 from the field for two points with nine rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

The future Hall of Fame big man hasn't been a force on offense in the postseason. Duncan hasn't scored more than eight points in any 2016 playoff game and averaged just 6.2 points per game in his previous five. He's tough to trust in DFS.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

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 - F/C - Spurs

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 (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.
Apr 12 - 11:44 PM
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.
