David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) returned to action on Thursday with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal, finishing 2-of-2 from the field in 22 minutes.

Lee sat out Tuesday's game but it was mostly a precautionary DNP, and he was never in doubt tonight. The veteran is fitting in well with San Antonio, averaging 7.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He's shooting 61.2 percent from the field, the second-highest mark in his career, but limited minutes continue to spoil his fantasy appeal.

Danny Green disappeared vs. Memphis on Thursday with four points, two assists, one turnover and no other stats to his credit in 22 minutes.

We're more than 85 percent through with the regular season, so anyone owning Green should be inured to occasional duds. He's not worth owning in most points leagues, but continues to eke out value in most roto formats. Owners should at least be spared DNP-CDs given his modest playing time and the Spurs' continued pursuit of the No. 1 seed.
Mar 23 - 11:47 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored a game-high 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting vs. Memphis on Thursday, going 1-of-2 from downtown with eight rebounds, three blocks, one assist and zero turnovers.

Aldridge's mid-range shot was falling tonight, and even praise-stingy Gregg Popovich said afterward, "He looks pretty comfortable shooting the ball." His recent absence due to a heart issue was very brief, and he's been excellent since his return -- in his previous four games, he averaged 21.0 points (48.1 FGs, 100.0 FTs) with 7.5 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.5 triples.
Mar 23 - 11:44 PM

Tony Parker went 5-of-12 from the field on Thursday for 13 points with seven assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in 30 minutes.

Parker shot 8-of-10 from the field on Sunday, but he followed that up with 0-of-6 shooting on Tuesday, so tonight's game basically split the difference. The veteran has been open about the fact that he's no longer needed as an aggressive scorer, and he's very hard to trust on a night-to-night basis for fantasy purposes.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) will play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He was probable to play after missing Tuesday's action. With the Spurs having most of their depth up front, Lee is likely looking at minutes in the upper teens. He's not a fantasy option right now.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) is probable for Thursday against the Grizzlies.

He said he is expecting to play, so this is essentially a non-update. Lee is likely looking at minutes in the teens now that the Spurs are healthy up front.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) said he expects to play Thursday vs. Memphis.

Lee did not play Tuesday, but it was expected to be just a one-game absence. Lee's return will mean LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol will play their usual allotment of minutes on Thursday.
Mar 22 - 1:45 PM

Manu Ginobili returned from a day of rest and scored 11 points in 19 minutes vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

He's going to be annoying to own down the stretch because of all the DNPs, so he belongs on the wire outside of deeper leagues. He shot 4-of-7 from the field with three rebounds, two assists, three steals and one triple.
Mar 22 - 2:30 AM

Davis Bertans moved back to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Wolves and finished scoreless with one rebound in six minutes.

He didn't get any extra run with David Lee (foot) out, but he shouldn't have been owned in most leagues anyways. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 22 - 12:41 AM

Dewayne Dedmon scored two points with five rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

He was back in the starting lineup at the expense of Davis Bertans, but he was benched at halftime for Pau Gasol. Dedmon was averaging 16.9 minutes per game in March prior to Tuesday, so he's not getting enough playing time to help fantasy owners outside of deeper formats.
Mar 22 - 12:39 AM

Tony Parker missed all six of his shots on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, finishing with two points, five assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

He doesn't look healthy right now and did miss four games earlier this month due to a bad back. We expect him to pick up some DNP-rest days down the stretch, but even when he's active, he's a low-end option that's better suited for deeper leagues.
Mar 22 - 12:36 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points on 12-of-24 shooting vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

He got it going early with 12 points in the first quarter, his third-highest scoring quarter this season. This was one of his most complete games of the season, as he racked up five rebounds with three assists, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes. The Spurs don't have another back-to-back set until Apr. 4 and Apr. 5, so LMA hopefully won't be rested too much since the Spurs are within striking distance of the No. 1 seed.
Mar 22 - 12:30 AM

Dewayne Dedmon is starting vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

He came off the bench against the Kings on Sunday, so the Spurs may continue to mix up their lineup depending on the matchups. His minutes will be pretty low regardless of where he starts the game, especially with Pau Gasol healthy.
Mar 21 - 9:29 PM
David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee (foot) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

He's dealing with a sore left foot, but he said he's sitting as a precaution and expects to play on Thursday vs. Memphis. With Lee out, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol could get a small bump in minutes, while we could see more of Davis Bertans at the four.
Mar 21 - 8:24 PM

Tony Parker has embraced his late-career role as a facilitator of the Spurs offense.

Once a main cog in the San Antonio attack, Parker is now merely a minor contributor. "Just try and get Kawhi [Leonard] and [LaMarcus Aldridge] rolling early in the game to make sure they’re in the best rhythm as possible," said Parker. "That’s my job right now. It’s not my job anymore to try and be a scorer or try to be aggressive." Parker is averaging fewer than 11 points and five assists per game for the first time since his rookie season in 2001-02. Add in his injury issues, and it's tough to trust Parker down the home stretch of this fantasy season.
