Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

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.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw is starting again on Friday night against the Wolves.

He is coming off his best game of the season and it was fairly obvious he was going to start tonight. Diaw probably won't be as great, but he's someone to consider in standard leagues against a weak Wolves team.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw played a team-high 39 minutes and hit 8-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, six rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block in Wednesday's big win over the Cavaliers.

That's fantasy gold, right there, but the minutes were a big reason. Diaw normally gets 26 a night, but with Matt Bonner out, Diaw was a featured player for Gregg Popovich. This was his first double-digit scoring night since Nov. 5 and he's averaging 7.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.5 3-pointers, meaning he's probably not worth owning in your league. But this is your sign to keep a close eye on him going forward, in case tonight was the start of a hot streak.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will start against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He has usually been brought off the bench, but the Spurs are without Matt Bonner (illness) and Tiago Splitter (calf). Diaw did a nice job on LeBron last year in the Finals and will likely get more minutes than usual.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw came off the bench and had seven points, three rebounds, four assists, a block, a 3-pointer and five turnovers on 2-of-5 shooting Thursday.

The Spurs were undermanned due to resting Tim Duncan and several other big guns, but Diaw didn't exactly answer the call. Neither did Tony Parker or Kawhi Leonard, and Diaw has played better than this for most of the season. If you own him, don't pay attention to his line tonight. He'll be better in the next one.
