Boris Diaw filled the stat sheet in a win over Serbia on Wednesday, scoring 11 points with nine rebounds, nine assists and three turnovers in 29 minutes.
His YMCA-type game usually translates very well in international competition and today was no different. The French ran a lot of offense through him today, especially in the high post. Diaw also had a good rapport with his new teammate Rudy Gobert. He won't have much fantasy value this year, though. Aug 10 - 3:23 PM

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw filled the stat sheet in France's 87-66 loss to Australia on Saturday with nine points, five boards, two assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting.

Diaw's versatility will blend well with his new Jazz team, but he's not going to be a recommended fantasy target so long as Derrick Favors, Rudy Gobert and Trey Lyles are all healthy.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

The Spurs have traded Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz in exchange for the rights to Olivier Hanlan.

The Spurs needed to trade Diaw in order to clear up enough cap space to sign Pau Gasol, so this is an expected move. As for the Jazz, Diaw will give them some additional depth in the frontcourt after they lost Trevor Booker to the Nets, but he probably won't see too many minutes because Trey Lyles looked fantastic after the All-Star break last season.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

The Spurs are reportedly working to trade Boris Diaw in order to clear enough cap space for Pau Gasol.

San Antonio could go another route to clear the necessary space for Gasol, but the "most likely scenario" is finding another team to accept Diaw's $7 million salary (with a non-guaranteed $7.5 million salary in 2017-18). It shouldn't take long for this story to come full circle.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

The Spurs reportedly intend to keep Boris Diaw on the roster.

San Antonio could shave off $4 million off next year's payroll if they waived Diaw, but that is not something the organization is interested in doing. Diaw is only someone to look at in DFS on the days the Spurs rest their studs, but he's a non-option in most season-long settings.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw returned from a groin injury to finish Wednesday's game with four points, seven rebounds, two assists and five turnovers in 20 minutes.

Tim Duncan, LaMarcus Aldridge and David West were all rested tonight but Pop opted to deploy Diaw, likely to give him some rhythm after an extended absence. He'll be ready to go for the Spurs' first-round matchup vs. the Mavs.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw (groin) is only expected to play 15-20 minutes Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

With LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan and David West all set to spend Wednesday's regular-season finale on the sidelines, and Diaw with a minutes limit, Boban Marjonovic and Matt Bonner could earn some quality minutes tonight. Marjonovic is someone to consider as a punt play in DFS.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Gregg Popovich said that Boris Diaw (groin) will return to action Wednesday vs. Dallas.

Popovich is playing all the old guys on Tuesday vs. OKC, but said that it's fair to assume that the older vets that play against the Thunder will likely be rested Wednesday in Dallas. With Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge likely to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, there should be a decent amount of opportunity for Diaw, although he still wouldn't be worth much more than a punt in DFS.
Apr 12 - 6:27 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw (groin) will miss Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

Diaw has missed the Spurs last four games with a right adductor injury and will miss a fifth against the Thunder on Tuesday. The Spurs will likely rest other players with the No. 2 seed locked up, but Boban Marjanovic and David West will likely seen an uptick in minutes against the Thunder.
Apr 12 - 12:13 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw (groin) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder.

He had a 50-50 shot to play against the Warriors on Sunday, but the Spurs held him out as a precaution. If Diaw is able to play on Tuesday, the Spurs might look to give some other players a rest with the No. 2 seed locked up. Diaw is not a great fantasy option.
Apr 11 - 6:15 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw (groin) is targeting a return on Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

He was 50-50 to play on Sunday vs. the Warriors, but the Spurs are being cautious. Diaw's workload will likely be limited Tuesday, so he belongs on the wire unless the Spurs rest several players for that game.
Apr 10 - 5:46 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw will not play against the Warriors on Sunday.

He missed the last three games and he won't play in the next one. Diaw is kind of important for the Spurs against the Warriors because he has so much versatility. David West should get a couple extra minutes.
Apr 9 - 5:11 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw (soreness, right adductor) will not play in the next three games.

He may have suffered the injury on Saturday after playing just 10 minutes. The Spurs will likely rest some of their players in this three-game road trip, so we might get a little more of Boban Marjanovic.
Apr 4 - 6:27 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw started and scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting in a loss to the Thunder on Saturday with four rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes.

Diaw was rested on Friday vs. the Grizzlies, but the Spurs may need to ramp up his workload down the stretch because Tim Duncan will get plenty of maintenance days. In fact, Duncan has already been ruled out for Monday vs. the Grizzlies, so Diaw will likely earn a second straight start. He's still better suited for deeper leagues, though.
Mar 26 - 10:54 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Jazz

Boris Diaw will start at power forward on Saturday against the Thunder.

Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge are being rested, so Diaw, David West and Boban Marjanovic are looking at a lot of minutes in the frontcourt. The Spurs will rest their veterans a lot moving forward, so Diaw could be a sneaky pickup in deeper leagues.
