Matt Bonner (strained right calf) returned from an eight-game absence on Sunday, going scoreless with one rebound and one assist in 12 minutes off the bench.

Bonner is shooting 41.8 percent from downtown this season, just above his career average, but with only 11 minutes per game he doesn't get enough shot attempts to help fantasy owners.
Apr 6 - 10:37 PM

Matt Bonner (calf) is active for Sunday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

He might not even play because the Spurs don't have more room to put guys on the inactive list, but he's probably getting closer. Bonner has no fantasy value.
Apr 6 - 6:02 PM

Matt Bonner (calf) will not play against the Warriors in Wednesday.

He is expected to be out for another week or so and the Spurs won't be counting on him much upon his return. Bonner is fun to watch, but he doesn't have fantasy value.
Apr 2 - 3:59 PM

Matt Bonner (calf) will miss approximately two weeks with a calf strain.

An MRI confirmed a right calf strain for Bonner and the Spurs will be without the sharpshooter for the next two weeks. With only 12 games left on the Spurs' schedule, there is a chance that this is the last we've seen of him for the regular season. Bonner is only averaging 7.9 minutes per game during March, so his absence shouldn't create a void on any fantasy rosters.
Mar 25 - 1:37 PM

Matt Bonner (calf) will not play against the Sixers on Monday.

The Spurs are 20-point favorites tonight and the loss of Bonner probably won't be moving the line in Las Vegas here. He can be ignored in all leagues.
Mar 24 - 6:59 PM

Matt Bonner will not play against the Warriors due to a right calf strain.

He had a calf issue back in November and the Spurs might not just be resting him here. Regardless, Bonner's value in the NBA doesn't reside in the realm of fantasy.
Mar 22 - 9:27 PM

Matt Bonner (nose) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

"By tomorrow, I'll either have a new mask or a new face," Bonner said on Monday. He's one of the easiest players to root for and his unconventional shot is a great microcosm of his character. While we like watching Bonner on the court for his terrific range and how the red-headed big man in a mask should be a great sight, he doesn't have much fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 6:17 PM

Matt Bonner will not play on Sunday due to his nasal fracture.

He is going to wear a mask upon his return to the lineup, but the Spurs will hold him out for now. He's not worth using in almost any fantasy format even with Tiago Splitter out with a shoulder injury.
Jan 19 - 5:32 PM

Matt Bonner (broken nose) will have to wear a mask to play for next four weeks, and it's possible he will need surgery in the offseason.

"The Red Mamba" has no fantasy relevance as he's currently averaging 3.3 points and 1.6 rebounds on the season, but it may be amusing to watch him play with a protective mask.
Jan 19 - 10:53 AM

Matt Bonner suffered a broken nose against the Blazers on Friday and will not return.

He caught Thomas Robinson's head in the face and it's unknown if Bonner was rattled enough to be tested for a concussion. He finished with no points and three boards in six minutes. Bonner might be sporting a mask when he's able to return, which seems like must-see TV.
Jan 17 - 9:42 PM

Matt Bonner stepped up for the short-handed Spurs on Sunday, scoring a season-high 14 points while going 4-of-5 from downtown.

"It's easy if I get [open shots] right when I come in and I'm not hyperventilating from the lack of oxygen," said Bonner, poking fun at his own conditioning. The veteran also teamed with Boris Diaw to stifle Kevin Love, but even without Tiago Splitter (shoulder) there's no reason for fantasy owners to glance at Bonner.
Jan 13 - 9:12 AM

Matt Bonner returned from his strained calf on Wednesday, playing 14 minutes with three points, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He missed six games with his calf injury and will go back to being a bench guy for coach Gregg Popovich. Bonner isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Thu, Nov 21, 2013 12:38:00 AM

Matt Bonner (calf) will return to lineup on Friday.

He doesn't really play much and is just an occasional guy coach Greg Popovich uses to space the floor. Bonner can be left on the wire in all leagues.

Matt Bonner (calf) will not play against the Sixers on Monday.

He's been out since suffering his calf strain on Nov. 5, but hopes to return to the lineup on Wednesday. He's well off the radar in all leagues outside of an extremely deep streaming option in some daily formats.
