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. Nov 21 - 12:42 AM

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.

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.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw did a little bit of everything for Team France during an easy win over Latvia on Tuesday, scoring 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go with three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and two turnovers over 23 minutes.

Diaw is capable of putting up decent stat lines from time to time when given the minutes, but playing behind LaMarcus Aldridge and Davis West in San Antonio will make attaining those minutes a very difficult proposition. He'll be someone to consider in daily leagues on the days the Spurs rest a majority of their starters, but he won't have any long-term value in most leagues.

Boris Diaw has co-authored a children's book called, "Hoops to Hippos."

Boris Seuss? Roald Diaw? We'll have to work on his pen name, but Diaw's book sub-titled, "True Stories of a Basketball Star on Safari" has just been published by National Geographic Kids. Stories and safaris asides, Diaw will be hard-pressed to find meaningful minutes for the stacked Spurs this season and isn't much more than a deep-league fantasy option.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 17 points off the bench in Game 6 during a 102-96 loss on Thursday, adding four rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Clippers.

Tim Duncan was not great with 12 points, 13 boards and three assists while Manu Ginobili had just three points in 14 minutes. The Spurs had one of their worst games from an offensive standpoint and just missed a ton of open shots. Game 7 will be at 8:00 EDT on Saturday.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw came up clutch during Game 5 in L.A. on Tuesday, notching 10 points, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.

Diaw made a few timely buckets to help the Spurs escape with a four-point victory, including a critical 3-pointer and a savvy turnaround jumper to beat the shot clock (which you can view via the link below). He's averaging 4.3 assists in the playoffs while committing a mere 0.5 turnovers, giving him an astounding 8.5 assist-to-turnover ratio.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw had six points, five rebounds and three turnovers in a rare start on Sunday, making 2-of-5 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws in 24 minutes.

He matched up better vs. the Suns than Aron Baynes, but will likely return to the bench vs. Omer Asik and the Pelicans on Wednesday. Diaw is only worth fantasy owners' attention in 14-team leagues while in a reserve role, and it doesn't help that San Antonio only has one game left on their schedule.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting with five rebounds and four assists in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday.

With no money counting stats and some inefficient shooting he lost a decent amount of steam as a fantasy asset, but mostly because his schedule advantage is no longer intact. He's a low-end play and if there's something shinier on your waiver wire, don't hesitate to make the move.
