Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Cavaliers.

About the only thing fantasy owners can complain about is the fact Leonard missed all seven of his 3-pointer attempts. He could have blown through the lane for an easy deuce most of the evening, but elected to go outside rather frequently. He still was 11-of-21 overall from the floor, so fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol hit five of his eight field goal attempts, including both of his 3-pointer tries, to finish with 14 points and four rebounds over 21 minutes in Monday's blowout win against the Cavaliers.

Gasol has been coming off the bench with Dewayne Dedmon starting, almost splitting the minutes. However, the veteran Gasol is the big man you want between the two, as he has much more scoring upside without losing much in rebounds. Gasol is also a solid option from behind the arc, hitting nine triples on 13 tries over the past five outings.
Mar 28 - 12:03 AM

Danny Green misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's win against the Cavaliers, but he ended up with four blocked shots and two steals.

Two of Green's swats came at the expense of none other than LeBron James, as that is the kind of night it was for the Cavaliers. Green at least dropped one in the bucket from behind the arc, his specialty, although he has struggled from the perimeter in March. Green has made just five of his past 23 triple attempts over the past seven games, so he isn't really helping any fantasy owners at the moment.
Mar 28 - 12:00 AM

Dewayne Dedmon scored eight points on 4-of-6 shooting while adding 14 rebounds and a blocked shot in 20 minutes against the Cavaliers on Monday.

Dedmon held his own against Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson, cleaning the glass 10 times on the defensive end. Despite the solid performance, he is still only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues since he is in a timeshare with Pau Gasol. Gasol is still your best bet for fantasy production out of the duo.
Mar 27 - 11:54 PM

Danny Green (rest) will return to the court for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

Green sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, but he'll get back out there tonight, which will likely shift Jonathon Simmons back to the second unit. Gregg Popovich confirmed that he won't be resting any of his main guys for Monday's game, so if you own LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard or Pau Gasol, feel free to get those guys active.

Danny Green is expected to return on Monday after sitting out Saturday's game as a precaution.

It doesn't sound like the Spurs will rest any of their veterans for Monday's game vs. the Cavaliers, so owners can tentatively deploy them as usual. Dejounte Murray (groin) is the only player currently ruled out.
Mar 26 - 3:55 PM

Tony Parker (head) is expected to play vs. the Cavs on Monday.

Danny Green (rest) is also expected to return to action as the Spurs try to close the gap with the No. 1 seed Warriors, who are currently two games up. Parker has been playing well when healthy lately, but he's not a reliable option outside of deep leagues.
Mar 26 - 3:53 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week.
Mar 25 - 11:56 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He's been kind of ridiculous as a jump shooter. Since returning from injury, Gasol has made 7-of-8 on corner treys to go with his 51.5 percent on above the breaks for his 24 total treys in 16 games. His defense isn't great, but his shooting has made the San Antonio offense especially tough to guard. Keep him rolling and hope he doesn't rest in back-to-back sets.
Mar 25 - 11:52 PM

Tony Parker scored 10 points with one rebound, three assists and two steals in 22 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He did return after his face ran right into Willy Hernangomez's hip, and Parker looked fine after that. The Spurs have a big matchup against the Cavs in San Antonio on Monday, so Parker will likely be ready for that one. He's not a fantasy option.
Mar 25 - 11:47 PM

Jonathon Simmons scored six points in the starting lineup against the Knicks on Saturday, adding two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes.

He should be moving back to the bench for the next game, assuming Danny Green isn't resting again. Simmons has shown he can score, but there isn't enough opportunity when the Spurs have most of their offensive options active. He should have a couple big games the rest of the way, though.
Mar 25 - 11:45 PM

Kyle Anderson scored two points with two rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

A lot has changed since coach Gregg Popovich talked him up during the preseason. Anderson may have a big game in the last week of the regular season, but he's not going to be a fantasy option until then.
Mar 25 - 11:38 PM

Tony Parker returned to action in the third quarter.

He looks to be just fine. The Knicks had a big run after Parker checked out, so that may have been a factor for his return.
Mar 25 - 10:08 PM

Tony Parker (head) went to the locker room in the third quarter on Saturday.

He was on a drive and lowered his head to collided into Willy Hernangomez's left hip. Parker was able to walk to the bench under his own power, but he went straight to the locker room. With the Spurs up 20 at the time of the injury, Parker may be done for the night. He's likely being evaluated for a concussion.
Mar 25 - 9:56 PM

Kyle Anderson will come off the bench on Saturday.

Anderson will probably get minutes, but he's not a fantasy option as one of the least used players in the NBA.
