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. Sep 15 - 5:36 PM

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

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 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.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday.

The Tiago Splitter injury shouldn't impact him too much but it can't hurt. Diaw has been a solid late-round play with a superior schedule lately and he has another four-game week on the docket next. Pick him up unless you're stocked.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw stepped up vs. the Grizzlies with 10 points, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds and two assists in just 22 minutes off the bench.

Diaw made 4-of-8 field goals and he's now averaging a solid 14.6 points on 58.9 percent shooting, 1.2 three-pointers and 4.4 rebounds over the Spurs' past five games. He's added zero steals or blocks during that span, unfortunately, which is limiting him to late-round value despite the offensive surge.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored 19 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-11 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes.

Diaw is running at a top 90-100 level over his past four games and if you took a chance on him because of his excellent fantasy schedule so far you're winning.

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.
