Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw had 19 points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer on 9-of-15 shooting in 25 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 130-91 win over the Thunder.

Diaw's actually been running hot for the Spurs, averaging 14.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and is shooting 56 percent over his last five games. Give him a look if you need a warm body. Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Danny Green, Jeff Ayres and Patty Mills all scored in double digits for the Spurs, but this game was so ugly, there wasn't much to learn from it. The Spurs are rolling, winning nine of 12 games in March with big wins over the Thunder, Hawks and Bulls.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw made 8-of-10 field goals with one 3-pointer on Sunday, finishing an easy win vs. the Hawks with 17 points, two rebounds and two assists.

Diaw had some flashy plays offensively and he even beat the entire Atlanta defense for a breakaway layup in the fourth quarter, which put an exclamation point on the blowout. His steady bench contributions are more valuable in real life and he's only worth owning in leagues with a minimum of 14 teams.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw got hot on Wednesday and had 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and a steal on 5-of-8 shooting in 31 minutes.

This was Diaw's highest scoring game since way back on Dec. 22, so there's no reason to think he's going to suddenly start doing it on the regular. Just keep an eye on him.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw started in place of Tiago Splitter (rest) on Wednesday, but had just four points, two rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes.

Hopefully you didn't take the bait and start him in DFS. Aron Baynes wasn't much better with four points and nine boards in just 14 minutes.

Boris Diaw (illness) will be available to play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

Diaw picked up a DNP-CD on Thursday, but coach Gregg Popovich explained he was dealing with a 100-degree fever, and was suffering a bit of strep, and his decision to withhold him from Thursday's game was to have him available for Friday. However, Diaw will likely be limited tonight playing through an illness, and given the difficult matchup, he's not a very attractive option in daily leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Boris Diaw had a 100-degree fever, and that was the reason he did not play during the Spurs' Christmas Day loss to the Thunder.

Pop said he was trying to save bodies for tomorrow's game vs. the Pelicans, so it seems there's a chance Diaw suits up for that one. If Diaw sits, there will be more minutes to go around for Tiago Splitter, Matt Bonner, and Aron Bynes. Stay tuned.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored a season-high 23 points against the Clippers during a 125-118 win on Monday with six rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

He's playing a lot of minutes and is filling it up. Over his last five games, Diaw averaged 12.2 points, 6.8 boards, 4.8 assists and 1.2 triples in 32.8 minutes per game. Diaw won't be playing this much now that the Spurs are getting guys back, but he's worth a look in standard leagues until Kawhi Leonard (hand) returns.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will start for Friday's game vs. Portland, sending Matt Bonner back to the bench.

Diaw's numbers with the starting unit are nearly identical to his numbers as a reserve, so this news has a greater impact on Bonner who becomes negligible when coming off the bench. Diaw can only be considered a low-end asset in deeper leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 17 points with 13 boards, five assists and three 3-pointer sin 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

It was his first double-double of the season and he matched his season high in triples tonight. Diaw has been a valuable piece for the Spurs this season when they sit their veterans. While he is 32, he hasn't sat any game this season, which could change after tonight. He's a low-end player to own in deeper leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw handed out a season-high nine assists against the Blazers on Monday with 10 points, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He didn't top 26 minutes in any of his previous six games, but was up to 36 tonight with the Spurs resting the cavalry. Diaw has fared well on most of his nights while Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are resting, so just keep this line in mind in the future.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 12 points in an easy 109-95 win over the Knicks on Wednesday with three rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

That's three games in a row with at least four assists and Diaw's 3.4 per game on the year are his highest with the Spurs. Diaw has provided low-end fantasy value in standard leagues, but he should be worthy of starting in most formats on the nights coach Gregg Popovich sits his stars.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw missed all six of his shots and failed to score in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

He's been hit-or-miss all season and scored just two points last Wednesday, 15 on Sunday and then five points on Monday. He's simply not reliable enough to be used on a daily basis, at least for the time being.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting (including three 3-pointes) with seven rebounds, three assists, and a block as the Spurs dominated the Celtics on Sunday.

Diaw also hit both of his free throws, and didn't turn the ball over once in just over 24 minutes of action. Diaw isn't going to have any plays drawn up for him, and his hit-and-miss nature makes him difficult to own in standard leagues, but he could be in for another nice outing on Monday as the Spurs take on the 76ers.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw hit just 1-of-3 shots for two points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 33 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

He also committed three turnovers in his worst game of the season. He had scored in double figures in his previous three games, but was scoring in single figures for most of the season prior to his hot streak. He's always worth a look in fantasy leagues, but is simply unreliable in the Spurs offense.
