DeRozan chipped in with 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
DeRozan has cracked the 20-point mark just thrice in his last nine games and he's shooting just 47.5 percent from the field during that stretch, which is a downgrade compared to what he's done most of the season. However, he's making strides as a playmaking threat and is averaging 7.8 assists per game during that nine-game span, while registering nine or more dimes five times in that period.
DeRozan compiled 25 points (7-19 FG, 11-12 FT), eight boards, four assists and two steals across 42 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
DeRozan made up for his poor shooting from the field by getting the job done at the free-throw line, raising his season-long rate to 84.4 percent after the 11-for-12 showing. The swingman remains allergic to the 3-point line -- he's only attempted one shot from downtown over his last 15 games -- but his ability to get to the line and convert at a high rate along with his exceptional 52.8 field-goal percentage have him on track to finish with a new career high in true shooting percentage. His 59.8 TS% is more than four points higher than his mark from any other season.
DeRozan provided 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 win over the Hornets.
DeRozan posted his fifth double-double through 58 appearances this season, this after recording his career best (12 across 77 games) in that category in 2018-19. While his second year with the Spurs hasn't been as good in that department, DeRozan is still having a splendid season, as he's sporting a career-high field-goal percentage while continuing to produce well-rounded counting stats.
DeRozan had 27 points (9-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-9 FT), nine assists, eight rebounds and one steal over 34 minutes in Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Mavericks.
DeRozan has had decreased production over the past three games that may have been attributed slightly to his back injury, but he returned to form as he nearly picked up a triple-double Wednesday. After converting on just 41.4 percent of his field goal attempts over the previous two games, DeRozan made 60 percent of his shots from the field against the Mavericks.
DeRozan notched 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes during Sunday's 131-103 loss at Oklahoma City.
Generally speaking, DeRozan has drastically improved his shooting this season, making an easily career-best 53.0 percent of his attempts. However, he hasn't lived up to that standard recently, making 41.8 percent of his field-goal attempts in his last four contests. It's worth noting, however, that he's been dealing with a back injury of late, which could be the cause of this recent downturn.
DeRozan (back) put up 18 points (8-17 FG, 2-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and one block across 36 minutes Friday in the Spurs' 113-104 win over the Jazz.
DeRozan missed the Spurs' last two games of the first half with back spasms, but the All-Star break provided him with enough time to move past the injury. The fact that DeRozan handled a full minutes load and delivered useful numbers across the board in his first game back should provide sufficient reason for fantasy managers to activate him.
DeRozan (back) said he'll play Friday at Utah, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The veteran wing missed the final two games before All-Star break with back spasms, but he said Wednesday, "I'm perfect. I'm back. No problems. No issues." The absences were DeRozan's first missed games of the season, and he finished the first half averaging 23.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.1 steals over 34.3 minutes in 52 games.
DeRozan (back) won't play in Tuesday's matchup against the Thunder, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
As expected, DeRozan will miss a second straight game while dealing with back spasms. With nine days off starting Wednesday because of the All-Star break, the veteran forward will presumably be ready to go when the Spurs take on the Jazz to begin the second half of the regular season Feb. 21.
DeRozan (back) is considered doubtful to play Tuesday against the Thunder, Jeff Garcia of News 4 in San Antonio reports.
DeRozan was held out of Monday's loss to the Nuggets with back spasms, and it looks as though he'll remain out on the second night of the back-to-back set. Lonnie Walker filled DeRozan's spot in the starting lineup Monday night.
Coach Gregg Popovich admitted after Monday's 127-120 loss to the Nuggets that he was uncertain if DeRozan (back) would be ready to play Tuesday versus the Thunder, John Diaz of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Despite not appearing on the Spurs' injury report leading up to Monday's game, DeRozan was forced to sit out for the first time all season after experiencing back spasms while warming up. The issue doesn't appear to be a major concern at this stage, but given that the Spurs will head into the All-Star break after Tuesday's game, the team may be inclined to hold DeRozan out for the second half of the back-to-back. Consider DeRozan questionable -- at best -- for Tuesday's game at this juncture, with Lonnie Walker likely on tap for another start in the event the veteran sits.
DeRozan has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Nuggets due to back spasms, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
DeRozan was announced in the starting lineup with under one hour remaining before tip, so it appears this injury has flared up at the last moment. Lonnie Walker joins the starting five in DeRozan's place.
DeRozan notched 21 points (6-16 FG, 9-9 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Thursday's 125-117 loss at Portland.
DeRozan topped the 20-point mark for the sixth straight game and continues to be San Antonio's main scoring threat on a nightly basis, but he was uncharacteristically inaccurate from the field -- this was the first time in his last six games where he didn't 50 percent or better. DeRozan can have an off night from time to time, but he does enough across the board to remain fantasy relevant even when his shot stops falling.
DeRozan contributed 28 points (12-21 FG, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds and seven assists in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 129-102 loss at the Lakers.
DeRozan has made double-digit field goals in five straight contests and is going through an excellent run of form, averaging 30.4 points while shooting 55.6 percent from the field during that stretch. That impressive degree of efficiency should boost DeRozan's upside -- which was already high due to his scoring ability -- since he is shooting a career-high 53.7 percent from the field in 2019-20.
DeRozan scored 24 points (10-15 FG, 4-5 FT), six assists, two rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during Saturday's 114-90 win over the Hornets.
Another game, another outing where DeRozan continues to show his improved accuracy is no fluke. The star shooting guard is making 56.8 percent of his field goals during his last six outings. Aside from averaging 27.0 points per game during that span, he is also chipping in with 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists per night. His ability to contribute in several areas of the game with a high degree of efficiency has transformed him into one of the top shooting guards in the league for fantasy purposes over the last few weeks.
DeRozan exploded for 38 points (11-19 FG, 16-19 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 win over the Jazz.
DeRozan has always been an elite scorer, but he seems to be taking things to a whole new level during January. He has scored at least 30 points in three of his last four games and is averaging 26.9 points per game during the current month. He has also contributed steadily in rebounds and assists of late, averaging 6.6 boards and 5.7 dimes per game during that stretch.
DeRozan scored 36 points (11-21 FG, 14-17 FT) to go with 10 rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes during Monday's 110-109 defeat at Chicago.
DeRozan continues to look extremely sharp both at the charity stripe and from the field, as he's making well over 50 percent of his field-goal attempts for the first time in his career. This was his first double-double since Dec. 23, but he's a steady contributor in boards, assists and steals in addition to his consistently excellent offensive output.
DeRozan scored 30 points (10-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 10-11 FT) and added four assists, eight rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 103-99 loss to Phoenix.
It was DeRozan's first 30-point game in five contests but ultimately wasn't enough for the victory. The 30-year-old also led the Spurs in rebounds on the evening.
DeRozan had 18 points (5-15 FG, 8-9 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and three steals in 35 minutes Monday in the Spurs' 120-118 win over the Suns.
After converting at a remarkable 62.3 percent clip from the field over his prior 14 contests, DeRozan finally saw his efficiency drop off. Fortunately for his fantasy managers, DeRozan cushioned the dropoff in his shooting accuracy with another well-rounded stat line. He's now recorded no fewer than five rebounds, four assists or one steal in seven straight games.
DeRozan delivered 20 points (7-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 38 minutes during Sunday's 107-102 win over the Heat.
DeRozan finished exactly one board and one dime shy of posting a triple-double for the third time in the last five games. He continues to benefit in a big way from LaMarcus Aldridge's recent decision to take his offensive talents out beyond the arc, as it has provided DeRozan ample breathing room to go to work from the mid-range and in. Assuming the Spurs prioritize a playoff push and don't break up the team heading into the trade deadline, DeRozan seems set up to have a superb second half of the season.
DeRozan had 25 points (9-18 FG, 0-1 3PT, 7-7 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Friday's 121-120 loss against the Hawks.
DeRozan was just one rebound and one assist shy of his first triple-double of the season, and the veteran scorer continues to deliver at a very efficient rate offensively for the Spurs. He is shooting a career-best 54.1 percent from the field this season, including a stellar 62.0 percent mark during his last five games -- a span where he is also averaging 29.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game. The former Raptors star might not be able to sustain this kind of efficiency during the entire season, but there's no question he has been San Antonio's biggest scoring threat of late.
