  • Brandon Paul: Let go by San Antonio

    Paul was waived by the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Paul, undrafted out of Illinois in 2013, got his first taste of NBA action with the Spurs last season. He appeared in 64 games, averaging just over two points in 9.0 minutes per game. It's possible he opts to return to the G League or head back overseas. He's spent time in both scenarios since leaving college.

    Paul was not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Won't play Saturday

    Paul has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Jazz due to back spasms, Paul Garcia of TheSportsDaily.com reports.

    Paul has played more than 10 minutes in just one game this month, so his absence won't have much impact on the Spurs' rotation for Saturday's tilt. His next chance to return will come Wednesday against the Suns. In the meantime, Danny Green, Bryn Forbes and Manu Ginobili should continue to see the majority of minutes at shooting guard.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Questionable Saturday with back spasms

    Paul is questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz due to back spasms.

    As of late, Paul has been on the outside of the Spurs' rotation looking in, as he played just two minutes of garbage time in Thursday night's loss to the Rockets. So, should Paul be held out Saturday's game, it likely will have little-to-no impact on the team's rotation.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Recalled from G-League

    Paul was recalled from the G-League on Sunday, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

    Paul made his first G-League appearance of the season Saturday, posting 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and two steals across 29 minutes. However, he'll be recalled after just one game and should be available for Sunday's tilt with the Pacers. That said, Paul has been a DNP-CD in three of the last four games, so he won't be someone to consider for fantasy purposes.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Will start Saturday vs. Suns

    Paul will start at small forward for Saturday's matchup with the Suns, Craig Grialou of the Arizona Republic reports.

    The Spurs are set to be without Manu Ginobili, Pau Gasol and Tony Parker for rest Saturday, as well as both Kawhi Leonard (quad) and Kyle Anderson (knee) with their respective injuries. That allows Paul to pick up the start on the wing and he should be in line for a hefty workload with so little bodies available. Consider Paul a potential punt-play option for Saturday's slate, though his stint in the top unit will likely just last one game.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Starting at shooting guard

    Paul will start at shooting guard in Sunday's game against the Thunder, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    With Coach Gregg Popovich resting multiple key players Sunday, he utilize a smaller starting five that moves Danny Green to small forward and Kyle Anderson to power forward. Paul has been largely out of the rotation since scoring 15 points in 25 minutes in a victory over the Bulls, but he should be in line for an extended role Sunday with San Antonio light on depth.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Scores career-high 18 points in Monday's loss

    Paul provided 18 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during Monday's 108-94 loss to the Celtics.

    Paul posted career highs in scoring, rebounding, made field goals and free throws, and threes. He also matched his career best in blocks. While Paul doesn't figure to be in the mix for too many minutes once Kawhi Leonard (quad) returns, the 26-year-old rookie could carve out a decent role for himself as the fourth or fifth wing on the depth chart behind Leonard, Danny Green, Rudy Gay, and the ageless Manu Ginobili, who will occasionally receive the night off to rest -- as he did on Monday.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Puts up five points Friday

    Paul tallied five points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block through 21 minutes during Friday's matchup against the Magic.

    Paul played a season-high 21 minutes Friday after playing 19 minutes Wednesday. The 26-year-old has seen an increase in minutes since Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) has been out for the Spurs' first five games. Paul will likely move back to the end of the bench when Leonard returns.

  • Spurs' Brandon Paul: Signs with Spurs

    Paul signed a deal Thursday with the Spurs, freelance reporter David Pick reports.

    Paul has been absent from the NBA since he was waived by the 76ers prior to the start of the 2016 season. The former Illinois star, however, has been very impressive in summer league thus far, averaging 14.3 points per game in Las Vegas and 16.5 points per game in Orlando. As of now, the Spurs have plenty of backcourt depth, so it's likely the team just keeps the guard through training camp and preseason before letting him go.
