  • Marco Belinelli: To play in Italy

    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.

  • Spurs' Marco Belinelli: Doesn't end up playing

    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.

  • Spurs' Marco Belinelli: Expected back vs. Denver

    Belinelli (foot) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against Denver, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

  • Spurs' Marco Belinelli: Won't play Sunday

    Bellinelli (foot) won't play Sunday against Memphis, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.

    As anticipated, the veteran will be inactive to tend to a left foot sprain which he suffered in Friday's contest against the Kings. With Belinelli out, Lonnie Walker may see increased run off the bench Sunday. Belinelli will have a chance to return to the floor Monday versus the 76ers.

  • Spurs' Marco Belinelli: Doubtful for Sunday

    Belinelli (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.

    The veteran suffered a sprained left foot during Friday's re-opener. With Bryn Forbes (quad) out, the Spurs will likely be shorthanded again in the backcourt. That should lead to extra minutes for Dejounte Murray, Derrick White and Lonnie Walker. Keldon Johnson also saw 30 minutes in the opener.

    Belinelli will not return to Friday's matchup with the Kings due to a sprained ankle, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

  • Spurs' Marco Belinelli: Sparkles off bench in return

    Belinelli (illness) put up 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes Tuesday in the Spurs' 119-109 win over the Mavericks.

    Belinelli was available off the bench after missing the previous three games with an illness and was able to seize a rotation role thanks to the absences of Dejounte Murray (calf) and Lonnie Walker (lower leg). The 33-year-old was able to deliver some quality three-point production to go along with little else, which has been a familiar refrain throughout his career. Unless the Spurs decide to the reduce the playing time of rookie first-round pick Keldon Johnson, Belinelli could drop out of the rotation once one of Walker or Murray is back in action.
