Top Keita Bates-Diop News

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Provides offensive spark for Spurs

    Bates-Diop amassed 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 113-104 loss to the Lakers.

    Bates-Diop's final numbers were a little surprising because he seemed to be always active in the loss, making plays everywhere on the court. The decision to start Bates-Diop with Romeo Langford (hip) out was a wise one, and it went so well that Langford will be looking over his shoulder upon his return. The Ohio State product's dynamic play will almost assuredly earn him more playing time.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Starting Wednesday

    Bates-Diop will start Wednesday's game against Memphis.

    Bates-Diop has seen two straight starts with Keldon Johnson (hamstring) absent and was expected to return to the bench Wednesday with Johnson active. However, Bates-Diop will remain in the starting unit in place of Jeremy Sochan. Considering Sochan was not on the team's injury report, Bates-Diop could still see a lessened role despite being tabbed as a starter.

    Bates-Diop (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game versus the Grizzlies, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

    Bates-Diop is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Grizzlies due a right ankle sprain, Ty Jager of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

Bates-Diop will likely move to the bench even if he can play against Memphis.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Offers little despite spot start

    Bates-Diop amassed four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, one block and one steal across 22 minutes during Saturday's 121-116 loss to the Celtics.

    Bates-Diop shifted into the starting lineup Saturday, replacing the injured Keldon Johnson (hamstring). While he was able to rack up two combined steals and blocks, it was an otherwise empty night. The Spurs are certainly pushing hard for a high lottery pick, meaning their rotations are going to be unpredictable moving forward. Bates-Diop is often a beneficiary when others are out, but given his lack of production, he should not be at the top of the list when it comes to potential streaming candidates.
