Tim Duncan played 48 minutes against the Grizzlies during a triple-overtime loss on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with 16 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals.
Yeah, he's probably not playing on Friday against Portland. Duncan actually hit a buzzer-beater to send this game to triple-OT, but he missed 10 of his 15 free throws -- tied his most misses in a game in his career (happened four other times). Again, his fantasy owners should plan on him sitting out one if not both back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday. Dec 18 - 12:45 AM

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tiago Splitter will all be active for Wednesday's showdown with the Grizzlies.

All three players were rested on the second night of a back-to-back set on Monday, so this news comes as no surprise. Duncan is the only must-start option, while Ginobili is worth a look considering Tony Parker (hamstring) is on the sidelines. Splitter, on the other hand, is only an asset in deeper leagues until he earns a larger role.
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tiago Splitter and Tony Parker are out against the Blazers on Monday.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set, so this news is not a surprise. The Spurs do have a game on Wednesday followed by a back-to-back set starting on Friday, so there is a chance that these three guys sit out two games this week. With Duncan out, Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes will benefit.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan (rest) returned to action in the Spurs' 112-110 loss to the Lakers on Friday, scoring 19 points on 9-of-16 shooting with 18 rebounds and two blocks.

Duncan also passed Jerry West for 18th on the all-time scoring list, but he was probably so mad about the loss that he gently tipped over a potted plant in his living room.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will play against the Lakers on Friday.

He rested on Wednesday and there was never really a doubt. He will likely abuse the frontcourt of the Lakers, so make sure he's in your lineup. Aron Baynes loses some value.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He is getting rest tonight on the second half of a back-to-back set. Chances are he's going to be replaced to be replaced by Aron Baynes, but Duncan should be fine for Friday night.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan (rest) and Manu Ginobili (rest) are questionable to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back, so there will always be some uncertainty with these guys. Duncan is catching up to Jerry West on the all-time scoring list, but it might not happen tonight. If he's out, it'll be Aron Baynes and Tiago Splitter (calf) benefiting.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan racked up 23 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, three steals and four blocks in a losing effort on Tuesday, making 10-of-16 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs in 36 minutes.

Huge and well-rounded stat lines like this are the reason why fantasy owners will tolerate the occasional unexpected DNP from Duncan, who is still a top-30 value (per-game) at age 38. We'll keep a close eye on his status for Wednesday's game vs. the woeful Knicks, which has 'DNP-Old' written all over it.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan double-doubled in just 19 minutes during a 123-101 win over the Wolves on Saturday with 13 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks.

Coach Gregg Popovich said Duncan is unlikely to play unless he was beaten up by Duncan, so he apparently beat up his coach before beating up the Wolves. After a slow start, the Spurs have won 10 of their last 11 and look like contenders -- nobody is surprised, of course. Duncan has been a third-round guy on the season, but the DNPs later this year make him more of a mid-round asset.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan is now playing against the Wolves.

Coach Gregg Popovich said Duncan would have to beat him up to get in the lineup tonight, so we'll look for bruises on Pop. Duncan is still a very risky play tonight, but he could have a huge game against a weak front.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan is unlikely to play against the Wolves on Saturday.

He is coming off a triple-double and the Spurs will give him a night off at home. Aron Baynes was phenomenal in the first half the last time Duncan sat, so he's worth a look. Jeff Ayres and Boris Diaw also benefit.
Dec 6 - 7:04 PM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan notched his fourth career triple-double in Friday's road win over the Grizzlies, scoring 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting with 10 rebounds, 10 assists and two blocks.

As usual he's blowing away expectations and the Spurs have gotten pretty good at managing his minutes. Sell high if you want, but make sure you drive a hard bargain for the top-30 player.
Dec 6 - 2:04 AM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will start Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

There's always a bit of uncertainty with the Spurs old guys and back-to-back sets, but Gregg Popovich said that all the players who are in Memphis will be available to play tonight, excluding Tiago Splitter and Patty Mills. Go ahead and get Timmy active for what should be an exciting game against the Grizzlies.
Dec 5 - 5:00 PM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan returned from a day of rest on Wednesday and hit just 5-of-18 shots, but still finished with 14 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks in a heartbreaking loss to the Nets.

The Spurs fought their way back in this one and sent the game to overtime, but couldn't finish the deal. Duncan got a "DNP-Old" on Monday and it won't be the last time, but came through with a nice line if you forget about the bad shooting against Brook Lopez.
Dec 3 - 11:43 PM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan will return for Wednesday's game as expected after resting against the 76ers on Monday.

He got some much needed rest Monday, and owners can safely plug him back into their lineups. Duncan is always a good bet for a double double when he is active, but there is always going to be concerns about him resting more and more as the season progresses. Aron Baynes will head back to the bench Wednesday, but should be owned in deep leagues for his scoring and rebounding ability in the low post.
