Dieng amassed eight points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one block across 20 minutes during Saturday's 151-131 loss to the Timberwolves.
Dieng was productive in Saturday's loss, playing as the backup center behind Sandro Mamukelashvili. The Spurs continue to change up their rotation on a nightly basis, making streaming a hard tactic to employ when it comes to their squad. Based on the current pattern, there is a chance Dieng sits out the final game of the season against the Mavericks on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Posts double-double off bench
Dieng logged 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes during Friday's 130-115 loss to the Warriors.
Dieng made a significant impact off the bench Friday, securing his first double-double of the season and marking new bests in both points and rebounds. The big man caught fire from beyond the arc, nailing four of his five three-point attempts.

Gorgui Dieng: Back on free-agent market
The Spurs didn't retain Dieng after his second 10-day contract expired Jan. 30, Ty Jager of PoundingTheRock.com reports.
Dieng is back on the open market after his latest week-and-a-half-long stint with San Antonio recently came to an end. The veteran center opened the season on the Spurs' 15-man roster, only to be waived in January before re-upping with San Antonio on a pair of 10-day deals.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Sticks in rotation Thursday
Dieng accumulated two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across seven minutes during Thursday's 138-100 loss to the Clippers.
Dieng saw action for the third straight game, although he hasn't had much of an impact when he's been on the court. After signing a second 10-day contract a week ago, Dieng has remained on the fringe of the rotation, basically seeing minutes when the game is over. Clearly, there is nothing to report here in terms of fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Lands another 10-day contract
Dieng is signing a second 10-day contract with the Spurs on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Dieng signed a 10-day contract with the Spurs on Jan. 8 but played just one minute in his lone appearance over the last week and a half. His continued presence with San Antonio shouldn't impact the team's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Back with San Antonio
The Spurs signed Dieng to a 10-day contract Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Across 13 appearances (one start) this season, Dieng is averaging 4.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 11.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Gorgui Dieng: Parting ways with Spurs
Dieng will be waived by the Spurs on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Dieng has had inconsistent playing time for San Antonio this season, and he appeared in just one of the team's last 10 games. He'll be let go following the Spurs' acquisition of Noah Vonleh from the Celtics on Thursday, though San Antonio will also waive Vonleh. Dieng has spent time with the Timberwolves, Grizzlies, Hawks and Spurs during his 10-year professional career, and he may land a spot on a roster elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Moves back to bench
Dieng will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.
With Jakob Poeltl (knee) rejoining the lineup following a one-game absence, Dieng will shift back to his usual reserve role Wednesday. In nine appearances, Dieng has averaged 4.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 10.8 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Grabs seven rebounds in spot start
Dieng supplied seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), seven rebounds and three assists across 21 minutes during Sunday's 123-92 loss to the Lakers.
With Jakob Poeltl (knee) taking a seat for the back-to-back, Dieng stepped in and logged 21 minutes. The Spurs brought Dieng back to San Antonio after a year away with the Hawks. He's only appeared in nine games this season, and it would likely take an injury or roster shake-up for Dieng to be fantasy-relevant.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Starting for Poeltl
Dieng will start Sunday's game against the Lakers.
With Jakob Poeltl (knee) sitting the second half of the back-to-back, Dieng will get the nod at center for his first NBA start since midway through last season. The veteran big man has been a fringe rotation option thus far for the Spurs, but he should be set for a notable bump in minutes Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Dishes out two dimes
Dieng accumulated one rebound and two assists over two minutes during Wednesday's 134-122 loss to Minnesota.
Dieng had no field-goal attempts during Wednesday's defeat, but he still worked as a distributor during his minimal playing time.

Dieng scored seven points in the second quarter, making all three of his shots, and pulling down three rebounds. After playing just nine minutes in his preseason debut Thursday, the 32-year-old filled the box score in his 21 minutes Sunday. He has made 42.8 percent of his three-point shots over the last two seasons and is 3-for-6 from beyond the arc this preseason. Dieng signed a contract with the Spurs in July after playing last season in Atlanta and should get some playing time backing up Jakob Poeltl at center.... See More ... See Less

He joined Atlanta on a one-year pact for the 2021-22 campaign and appeared in 44 games, averaging 3.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.7 three-pointers, 0.3 blocks and 0.3 steals.
