The Spurs have officially signed Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

Williams will provide the Spurs with another 3-point threat in the absence of Marco Belinelli (groin), but his role likely won't be large enough to warrant attention in most leagues. You can safely leave Williams on the wire for now.

The Spurs are closing in on signing Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract.

There's no doubt that Williams can hit 3-pointers like nobody's business, but it's hard to imagine him having a sizable role in San Antonio. We will let you know if the deal becomes official, but it's safe to leave Williams on the wire for now.

Marco Belinelli (groin) remains out for Wednesday's game vs. Charlotte.

This will be his tenth straight game on the sidelines, and it's clear that the Spurs likely won't bring him back until he is 100 percent. Belinelli should be dropped in most leagues, while players like Patty Mills, Manu Ginobili and Cory Joseph will pick up extra minutes in the short-term.

Danny Green is in the midst of a major shooting slump, but a lot of that has to do with the fact that he has seen an increased workload this season.

"Some days the energy is there," said Green. "Some days, you’re fighting to find it." He is averaging a career-high 30.1 minutes per game, and currently leads the Spurs in minutes played so far this season. Over his last four games, he has made just 8-of-33 shots, including 6-of-21 from 3-point range. He should be able to turn things around soon, but knowing coach Gregg Popovich it's very possible that Green misses a game or two down the stretch in order to keep him fresh for playoffs.

Tony Parker was named FIBA Europe's 2014 men's player of the year on Wednesday.

This was his second straight year collecting the award, and he fully deserves it after helping the Spurs beat the Heat in the NBA Finals last season. However, Parker has really struggled to carry that momentum over into this season, but we also have to consider that he was battling a hamstring issue for quite some time. He is currently averaging 14.4 points, 4.7 assists and 1.7 boards per game, so his owners can only hope that he improves as the Spurs fight to bolster their position in the loaded Western Conference.

JaMychal Green and the Spurs reportedly could not reach an agreement on a second 10-day deal, and both sides will part ways when his contract expires.

He's reportedly receiving interest from Memphis, New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Portland, but as an end-of-the-bench kind of guy, he's unlikely to be able to hold any fantasy value in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.

Danny Green couldn't break out of his cold spell against the Bucks on Sunday, scoring just three points on 1-of-9 shooting while adding two boards, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He has now failed to score in double digits for the fourth game in a row, and it's obvious that he is losing confidence quickly. Green was in the midst of an incredible season prior to this slump, so his owners should hold onto him in the hope that he turns it around soon.
Jan 25 - 10:37 PM

Tiago Splitter shifted to the bench for Sunday's game against the Bucks, scoring eight points with two boards, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes.

Matt Bonner drew the start on Sunday, but this isn't the first time coach Gregg Popovich decided to alter his lineup. Given the constant uncertainty at the center position in San Antonio, neither player is worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 25 - 10:32 PM

Matt Bonner replaced Tiago Splitter in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Bucks, but played just 16 minutes and finished with five points, one board, one assist and one 3-pointer.

The lineup change isn't permanent by any means, and it's well known that coach Gregg Popovich constantly tweaks his rotations depending on the matchup. Even if Bonner remains in the starting unit for another game or two, it's obvious that he is not a reliable asset in almost any league.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan double-doubled in a win over the Bucks on Sunday, scoring 20 points with 11 boards, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 31 minutes.

A good game was long overdue for Duncan, as this was his first double-double since Jan. 16, and the first time he had scored 20 points in a game since Dec. 26. Duncan's minutes will likely start to trend down as the Spurs attempt to keep him fresh for the playoffs, and there is no question that he will likely pick up some more DNPs before the season ends. Having said that, Duncan is still a must-start player when active, but his owners should go ahead and get in the habit of checking the injury report before setting any lineups.
Jan 25 - 10:16 PM

Kawhi Leonard briefly left Sunday's game against the Bucks with a tweaked ankle, but returned shortly after to the tune of 19 points, 14 boards, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He was in the locker room for just a few minutes and didn't appear to be limited at all by his ankle. It's possible that he deals with some swelling in the coming days, but the Spurs are off until Wednesday so he should have plenty of time to recover. This is the kind of stat line that Leonard can put up on any given night, so it looks like he will continue to reward his patient owners for the rest of the way.
Jan 25 - 10:01 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) will not play against the Bucks on Sunday.

This is his ninth straight game on the sidelines and there is still no indication on when he will return to action. Belinelli can be dropped in almost all leagues for now, while Manu Ginobili, Patty Mills and Cory Joseph will all benefit in the short-term.
Jan 25 - 10:47 AM

Kawhi Leonard scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including a three) with 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in the Spurs' 99-85 win over the Lakers on Friday.

So far so good with regard to Leonard's hand and obviously if he's on the floor the production is going to be there. He's returning top 20-25 value on a per-game basis so far.
Jan 24 - 4:06 AM

Tony Parker scored 17 points in 23 minutes on Friday against the Lakers, hitting 7-of-14 shots (including a three) with one rebound and four assists.

Parker is slowly getting his feet underneath him and he profiles like a late-round guy in 8-cat leagues, and the hope for 9-cat owners is that he can truly pick up his game and stay in that same range.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Coach Gregg Popovich said everyone except Marco Belinelli (groin) will play on Friday against the Lakers.

This is your weekly "Spurs are not resting guys on the second night of a back-to-back set" update. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker didn't look great on Thursday in Chicago and they'll look to get it turned around at home vs. the Kobe-less Lakers.
