    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Draws the start Monday

    Diaw will draw a rare start Monday versus the Magic, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. With Tim Duncan out again, the Spurs have opted to give Diaw a chance as a starter. They have gone with David West and Kyle Anderson Previously. In the three games Duncan has been out, Diaw has averaged 4.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.3 steals in 17.6 minutes per game. He will likely see his workload increased a bit Monday in this rare start. It is unclear how long Duncan will remain out, so Diaw has an opportunity to earn more time in the short-term.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Scores 16 points Sunday

    Diaw recorded 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 16 minutes during the Spurs' 112-83 win against the Mavericks on Sunday. Diaw scored 16 points in as many minutes on Sunday, and he continues to give the Spurs solid play off the bench. Over the last five games, Diaw is averaging 9.8 points (52.9 FG, 42.9 3Pt, 83.3 FT), three rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 18 minutes per appearance. He can fill up the stat sheet if given considerable playing time, but coach Gregg Popovich is unlikely to up the 12-year-veterans 19 minute per game load during the regular season unless their unbelievably deep front-court suffers a few injuries.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Scores season-high 20 in runaway victory

    Diaw went off for a season-high 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and two steals across 25 minutes in Saturday's 121-103 win over the Rockets. Diaw has been holding down a second-unit role throughout the season, but the 33-year-old has emerged as one of the team's top sources of offense over the last two weeks. He's reached double figures in the scoring column in five of the last seven games, averaging 11.9 points while shooting an impressive 63.2 percent from the field in that span.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Ties season high with 16 points

    Diaw tied his season high with 16 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and added three rebounds and a steal across 25 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 win over the Nuggets. Diaw reached double digits in the scoring column for the third time in his last four games, but he can't regularly count on hitting the 25-minute mark like he did Saturday. He saw some extra run with Tim Duncan sitting out for rest, but with Duncan set to return for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, expect Diaw's playing time to settle closer to 20 minutes.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Collects season-high 16 points off bench Saturday

    Diaw collected a season-high 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four assists and three rebounds over 25 minutes in Saturday's 108-105 victory over the Celtics. The 13-year veteran has now received 25 minutes of playing time in two of the last three games, and posted double-digit scoring nights in each. Saturday, Diaw put up the most attempts he has all season (11), resulting in a season-high in scoring. Diaw's minutes are often in the teens, making it very difficult to count on any type of consistent production from him, but he has certainly proven capable of putting up a handful of performances similar to Saturday's several times each season.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Plays 25 minutes Wednesday

    Diaw scored 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) to go along with six rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Bucks. Diaw set a new season high on Wednesday for minutes played. He's averaging 18 minutes per game and likely got some extra time off the bench due to the teams dominating performance over Milwaukee. Though Diaw is averaging a good portion of time off bench he is averaging just 4.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game, making him pretty much irrelevant except in deeper fantasy formats.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Records season-high 12 points

    Diaw notched a season-high 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and eight rebounds to go along with three assists, one block, and one steal over 22 minutes in Monday's win over the Trail Blazers. It's just the second time that Diaw has cracked double-digit scoring on the season, as he's typically inhibited by seeing less than 25 minutes per game, which has happened in all nine of his appearances thus far. With LaMarcus Aldridge and Tim Duncan ahead of him on the depth chart and the Spurs unlikely to change up their deep rotations at any point, Diaw will have difficultly sustaining fantasy value throughout the season.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Scores six points Monday

    Diaw managed six points and four rebounds in the Spurs win against New York on Monday. Diaw is currently backing up Tim Duncan at the Spurs' center position, even though they are both true power forwards. They are both playing the center position because of the additions of star veterans LaMarcus Aldridge and David West at power forward. This loaded front court has shown early on that Diaw will be more likely to see less minutes overall than he has in past seasons, in fact he is currently averaging 20.8 minutes per game compared to his 28.5 career average. As a result, his points and rebound numbers have shown a slight dip this year.

    Spurs' Boris Diaw: Making preseason debut Sunday

    Diaw will make his preseason debut Sunday against the Pistons, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Diaw has been on the bench for the Spurs' first three exhibitions for rest and rehabilitation purposes, as he's not dealing with any sort of injury. The 33-year-old had spent the summer playing for the French National Team in the EuroBasket 2015 tournament, so coach Gregg Popovich felt it wasn't worthwhile to wear him out with a full preseason schedule. Diaw is set to serve as the Spurs' No. 4 big man, as starters LaMarcus Aldridge and Tim Duncan and newly-added bench piece David West likely rank ahead of him in the playing time picture.
