DeRozan delivered 20 points (8-21 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and four assists across 36 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Thunder. DeRozan has scored at least 20 points in three of his last four games following his one-game absence due to personal reasons on Feb. 24. DeRozan has experienced an uptick in his playmaking numbers this season but remains a reliable scoring threat for the Spurs, and he's been one of the team's go-to players on that end of the floor all season. He is averaging 20.2 points per game while shooting 47.8 percent from the field in 11 games since the beginning of February.
DeRozan ended with 10 points (2-5 FG, 6-6 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds and four steals across 30 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Knicks. DeRozan missed one game due to a personal matter on Feb. 24, but he has excelled as a playmaker since returning to the court and has dished out 11 assists in three straight contests. While the 10-point output -- and particularly the fact that he only attempted five shots all night long -- was a bit disappointing, DeRozan has been finding ways to deliver value outside of his scoring this season. He has dished out double-digit dimes in seven contests already.
DeRozan (personal) scored 32 points (11-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 10-12 FT) to go along with one rebound, 11 assists and two steals across 38 minutes in Saturday's 117-114 win over the Pelicans. DeRozan returned from a one-game absence due to a personal matter and exploded to score at least 30 points for the fifth time this season. He did so primarily on the ability to get to and covert from the free-throw line, marking the sixth time on the campaign he's hit double-digit free throws. DeRozan also supplemented his scoring by matching his season-high with 11 assists to notch his fourth double-double of the season.
DeRozan (personal) will start Saturday against the Pelicans, Dan Weiss of Fox Sports Southwest reports. As expected, with DeRozan returning, he'll join the starting five while Luka Samanic heads to the bench. This month, DeRozan has averaged 19.7 points, 7.4 assists and 5.4 rebounds in 33.1 minutes.
DeRozan (personal) is available for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. DeRozan will return to the court Saturday after missing Wednesday's game for personal reasons. He should have a significant role for the Spurs with several other players out due to injuries.
