Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will start against the Magic on Monday.

Interesting. The Spurs were smoked twice last week with David West in the starting lineup, so they'll mix it up. Hopefully, we'll see some Boban Marjanovic tonight. None of these guys are great adds right now.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw had 12 points, three rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes of Tuesday's win.

Diaw is quietly averaging 9.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists on 58 percent shooting over his last five games, making him possibly worth a look if you're in a very deep league.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored a season-high 20 points against the Rockets on Saturday with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He was eatin' during this win and had some nice production. Diaw isn't having an very impactful season in fantasy, but he steps up when the Spurs need him to. That's basically been the Gregg Popovich motto.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw said he's not interested in sitting games in order to rest.

While Spurs head coach Gregg Popovic has become famous for giving his players games off in order to rest, Diaw said he would prefer to play. ''Why would I? I'm so young,'' he said. ''I'm same age as Tony [Parker], but I don't age as much as much as they do. I stay young.'' Though Diaw is a solid role player for the Spurs, he can be left unowned in all but the deepest fantasy leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored a season-high 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting in Saturday's win over the Celtics.

He also added four assists, three boards, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 25 minutes. Diaw has now played 25 or more minutes in two out of his last three games, but keep in mind that he was averaging just 18.3 minutes per game prior to Saturday. The Spurs have plenty of frontcourt depth, so there's no reason to look Diaw's way outside of really deep leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw played 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with five points, four rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer during a 104-90 loss.

LaMarcus Aldridge said his ankle is a little tender, so Diaw and David West could be looking at more minutes. There's little reason to make a speculative add here at this point, but DFS owners may want to keep an eye on Aldridge's status for Saturday against the Grizzlies.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Gregg Popovich praised Boris Diaw during a recent interview.

"He really understands the game, he’s a really good basketball player," said Popovich of Diaw. "With his size, he can play outside, he can play in. He handles the ball like a point guard. He passes. He’s really an intelligent player and makes a lot of things happen. He’s real valuable to us." While Diaw is a valuable piece to the Spurs, the things he does don’t really show up on the stat sheet. With averages of just 6.3 points, 3.0 boards and 3.6 assists on the season, Diaw isn't worth owning in most leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw quietly filled up the stat sheet on Wednesday with nine points, one 3-pointer, six assists, two steals and three blocks in 20 minutes.

He didn't grab a single rebound but that won't phase owners who cashed in on tonight's defensive stats. Diaw isn't a standard-league option while Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge are healthy.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw returned to action on Sunday from an unspecified ailment with six points in 10 minutes.

"Boris is coming back from a groin or a stomach or something," Gregg Popovich said, "So we didn’t play him a lot of minutes. (He and West) will be in together from time to time and David will be the five." The Spurs are already in midseason form.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw has been cleared to play in Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

The Spurs have been holding him out during the preseason to give him some extra rest since he played for France this summer, so he hasn't been dealing with an injury. With the arrival of LaMarcus Aldridge and David West, Diaw's minutes will surely take a hit this season. Diaw is a low-end option in deep leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw (rest) was back at practice on Friday.

He should play on Sunday. Hopefully, Diaw didn't enjoy too many glasses of red wine with his time off. He's a low-end option in very deep leagues.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 02:56:00 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw (rest) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Hawks.

Diaw is going to have a tough time getting into the rotation with LaMarcus Aldridge and David West in town, and therefore, is not worth drafting in most leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw (rest, rehabilitation) will not play in Monday's preseason game.

Big Mac Boris hasn't digested entirely from the offseason just yet, so the Spurs will keep bringing him along slowly. With Tim Duncan, LaMarcus Aldridge and David West on the roster, Diaw will not exactly enjoy the same role he once did in San Antonio.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw (rest) will not play in Thursday's preseason opener vs. the Kings.

He will join Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili on the sidelines as the Spurs look to keep their aging veterans fresh prior to the start of the season. Diaw's role will likely take a substantial hit with David West and LaMarcus Aldridge in town, so his fantasy value will likely be limited to deeper leagues.
