Top Keita Bates-Diop News

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Starting vs. Warriors

    Bates-Diop will start Saturday's game against the Warriors.

    Bates-Diop will get the nod with a handful of Spurs resting. In his 13 previous starts, he's averaged 7.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.4 minutes.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Solid numbers off bench

    Bates-Diop registered 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist over 24 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 127-121 loss to Minnesota.

    The 26-year-old forward has taken on a consistent role in the Spurs' rotation over the last four games, scoring in double digits twice during that stretch and averaging 9.3 points and 5.3 boards over 19.8 minutes a night. With Lonnie Walker battling back trouble and Doug McDermott (ankle) done for the season, Bates-Diop will likely retain his spot through the final two games of the regular season and into the play-in tournament.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Leads bench with 12 points

    Bates-Diop produced 12 points (6-8 FG), seven rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Spurs' 113-92 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Bates-Diop missed time toward the end of March due to a back injury, but he's now received double-digit minutes in consecutive contests. Though San Antonio is expected to return Dejounte Murray (illness) and Jakob Poeltl (back) to action in its next game Tuesday in Denver, Jock Landale (foot) -- who exited early Sunday -- could miss that contest. If Landale is out, Zach Collins would likely slide back over to center to serve as Poeltl's backup, an arrangement that would continue to open up minutes at power forward for Bates-Diop.
