Belinelli will play in Italy next season with Virtus Bologna, Jeff Garcia of Spurs Zone reports. Belinelli will be returning to his home country after not receiving any NBA offers that were to his liking. So, the 34-year-old will go back to the team that he played for professionally at 16 years old. If this is the end of Belinelli's NBA career, his 1,216 made three-pointers rank 70th all-time in NBA history, and he won an NBA title with the Spurs in 2014.
Belinelli (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Wednesday's 132-126 loss to the Nuggets. Belinelli missed the last two games due to a sprained foot but was cleared to play in this one. Nevertheless, the 34-year-old shooting guard didn't end up seeing the court at all. Though the Spurs are still fighting for a playoff spot, coach Gregg Popovich has stated that the team is primarily focused on development. With Keldon Johnson playing at such a high level off the bench of late, it wouldn't be that surprising if Belinelli isn't part of the regular rotation for the remainder of the restart.
Belinelli (foot) will play Wednesday against the Nuggets, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. After missing the last two games with a sprained foot, Belinelli will be back in action Wednesday as the Spurs look to bounce back from their first loss in seeding play. In the opener against Sacramento, Belinelli played 15 minutes off the bench and finished with nine points (7-7 FT).
Belinelli (foot) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against Denver, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. The Spurs won't get Bryn Forbes (quad) back, but they should have the services of Belinelli, who missed the last two seeding games with a sprained left foot. In the re-opener against the Kings on Friday, Belinelli had nine points in 15 minutes off the bench.
Belinelli (foot) will not play Monday against the 76ers, Jeff Garcia of News 4 in San Antonio reports. A sprained left foot will keep Belinelli out for a second straight game as the Spurs play the second half of a back-to-back set. He played 15 minutes off the bench in the opener on Friday, finishing with nine points behind a 7-of-7 performance at the free-throw line.
