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. Jun 29 - 9:37 AM

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

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 - Spurs

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 - Spurs

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.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

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.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

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.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

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 - Spurs

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 - Spurs

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 - Spurs

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 - Spurs

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.
Mar 26 - 6:45 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

David West will likely pick up most of Diaw's minutes, and the chances of a Boban Marjanovic sighting increase sans Diaw, but neither of those guys are likely to make a difference in most settings with Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge healthy.
Mar 24 - 7:21 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will move back to the bench on Monday against the Hornets.

He is likely looking at minutes close to 20 in this game. Diaw won't be a reliable fantasy option while the Spurs aren't resting players.
Mar 21 - 5:51 PM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw started in place of Tim Duncan on Saturday vs. the Warriors and played well, scoring 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting with eight boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

This was a shrewd move by Spurs coach Gregg Popovich because he knew Duncan would struggle against the Warriors' small-ball lineup with Andrew Bogut (toe) out. It would be a surprise if Diaw remained in the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Hornets, so most owners can leave him on the wire for now.
Mar 20 - 12:04 AM
Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will start on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

The Warriors are starting Draymond Green at center in place of Andrew Bogut (toe), so the move makes sense for the Spurs. With that said, Diaw is still not worth picking up in most leagues and should head back to the bench the next time out.
