Poeltl scored 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and a steal in 35 minutes during Friday's win over the Kings. The fifth-year big has three double-doubles in his last eight games, although he managed double digits in either category only once in the other five contests. Poeltl's erratic production makes him a better option for DFS tournament play but his blocks still give him some season-long value, and over that eight-game stretch he's averaging 10.1 points, 7.0 boards, 2.6 assists and 2.0 rejections.
Poeltl (rest) is unavailable Sunday against the 76ers, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports. The 25-year-old will be sidelined for the front half of the back-to-back set, with DeMar DeRozan (rest) and Dejounte Murray (knee) also sitting for San Antonio. Poeltl should be back in the lineup Monday against the Jazz. Drew Eubanks and Gorgui Dieng should split work at center for the Spurs on Sunday.
Poeltl collected six points (3-5 FG), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in a 116-111 loss to Miami on Wednesday. Poeltl continued his dominance on the defensive end, recording multiple blocks in four of his last five contests. The center's consistency on the glass and on defense has made him a must-roster player in fantasy leagues. Poeltl has averaged 9.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.2 blocks across his last five games.
Poeltl totaled 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and four blocks in 30 minutes during Thursday's 106-91 win over the Pistons. Poeltl notched his first double-double since April 9. The 25-year-old also continued his block party by adding four Thursday night. He now has nine blocks over the last two games and is averaging 2.6 over the last eight. He's also shooting 67.8 percent from the field over that stretch. Not only was he scoring efficiently and protecting the rim, but he also dished out four assists.
Poeltl accumulated eight points (3-3 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, five blocks, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 107-87 loss to the Heat. Poeltl's breakout continued despite the loss, flirting with another double-double while adding five more blocks to his resume. While his scoring is far from a strong point, Poeltl's ability to rebound and block shots has made him a must-roster player since the Spurs parted ways with the now-retired LaMarcus Aldridge.
