DeRozan scored 20 points (6-9 FG, 8-8 FT) while adding 11 assists, six rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 125-104 win over the Trail Blazers.
The Spurs didn't have much trouble downing a short-handed Blazers roster on the road, as DeRozan was one of four San Antonio players to score at least 20 points. The 31-year-old has scored 20-plus in seven of 12 games to begin the season, but Monday's effort was his first double-double.
DeRozan scored 24 points (9-25 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes during Saturday's 103-91 win over the Rockets.
The short-handed Rockets once again put up a fight, but DeRozan made sure the Spurs wouldn't drop two straight games to their James Harden-less opponents. DeRozan has had an up and down start to the season scoring-wise, but he's still on pace for his eighth straight campaign with better than 20 points a game. He's also averaging a career-high 6.7 assists through 11 games, and his 5.7 boards per game isn't too far off his personal best either.
DeRozan (personal) will be available for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
After missing the past two games due to personal reasons, DeRozan will be back Thursday. He's having another excellent season, averaging 21.2 points on 14.8 shots, 7.0 assists (1.3 turnovers), 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 combined steals-plus-blocks.
DeRozan (personal) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.
DeRozan has missed the past two games due to personal reasons, but he could return Thursday. If he remains sidelined, Trey Lyles, Keldon Johnson and Lonnie Walker could continue seeing more time.
DeRozan (personal) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
DeRozan missed Sunday's game against the Timberwolves due to a personal matter, and he'll remain away from the team Tuesday as it finishes out a five-game road trip. The hope is that DeRozan will be back for Thursday's home matchup against Houston.
DeRozan (personal) will not play in Sunday's game against Minnesota, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
DeRozan left the team on its current road trip to tend to his ill father. The 31-year-old is coming off a 38-point outing on Saturday, but he could be out for several games due to this personal situation. In his absence, Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell should see increased workloads.
DeRozan put up 38 points (13-23 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 12-13 FT), five rebounds and five assists across 44 minutes in Saturday's 125-122 overtime victory over the Timberwolves.
DeRozan has seen his shot total, shooting percentage and points scored increase in each of the last three games. For the season, DeRozan has put up at least 19 points in all but two games. He will look for a repeat performance Sunday when the Spurs take on the Timberwolves in the second of a back-to-back.
DeRozan recorded 19 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in Thursday's road win over the Lakers.
A recurring theme for DeRozan right now is his near double-doubles. He has been at most two rebounds or assists short of one four times through eight games. It appears DeRozan could be a more complete option this year, perhaps giving him greater value now than in his past scoring-minded seasons.
DeRozan registered six points (3-9 FG), five rebounds, six assists and a block across 29 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Clippers.
DeRozan has scored at least 19 points in five of his seven games of the season to date, but he's also delivered two subpar performances in which he struggled from the floor en route to single-digit scoring totals. The veteran will attempt to bounce back in a tough road matchup Thursday against the Lakers.
DeRozan posted 19 points (9-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals across 27 minutes in Sunday's 130-109 loss against the Jazz.
DeRozan wasn't anywhere close to recording his first double-double of the season and also failed to reach the 20-point mark for the second time in 2020-21 so, by most accounts, this was one of his weakest performances of the season. DeRozan continues to be the Spurs' go-to player on offense, though, and he's expected to carry a high usage moving forward -- that alone is enough reason to keep him rostered until further notice, especially since he has still scored 19 or more points in all but one of his six games this season.
DeRozan had 23 points (8-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and one block in Friday's 109-103 loss to the Lakers.
DeRozan has yet to record a double-double this season, but he has come awfully close. He has played five games, posting seven to nine rebounds or assists in four of them. During the one game where he recorded 10 assists, DeRozan scored only eight points.
DeRozan tallied 23 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-10 FT), five rebounds and six assists in a loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.
DeRozan bounced back from a 3-for-12 shooting effort his last time out and surpassed the 20-point mark for the third time in four games this season. He also continued his emergence as a solid source of dimes, dishing six assists in the loss. The veteran wasn't much of a passer in the early part of his career, but he has blossomed in that area in recent campaigns and is on pace for a career-best 8.3 APG this season.
DeRozan had eight points (3-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), ten assists, three rebounds and one block during a 98-95 loss to New Orleans on Sunday.
DeRozan's first two games of the season saw him record near 30-point, 10-assist games. While he got 10 assists Sunday, the forward was surprisingly off with his shot. Sunday's matchup marked the first time in two seasons where DeRozan scored less than 10 points.
DeRozan posted 27 points (10-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Saturday's win over the Raptors.
DeRozan was one of six Spurs that scored in double digits in this game, and he ended just two assists shy of what would've been his first double-double of the campaign -- that was also the case in the season opener. DeRozan has surpassed the 25-point mark while dishing out eight or more dimes in each of his first two appearances this season, and he will try to extend that run of sizzling production Sunday at New Orleans.
DeRozan scored 28 points (7-14 FG, 0-0 3Pt, 14-15 FT) and added nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes of Wednesday's 131-119 win over Memphis.
DeRozan was hot in every way in this one and led the Spurs in scoring, rebounds and assists on the evening, although Dejounte Murray tied him in the latter category. The Grizzlies attempted to stop the 31-year-old with fouls, but he missed just one of his 15 tries from the free-throw line. He'll look to keep rolling Saturday at home against Toronto.
DeRozan scored 12 points (4-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven assists, a rebound and a steal across 24 minutes during Saturday's preseason loss to the Thunder.
DeRozan was one of five Spurs players to record double-digit points, but he also showcased his playmaking ability with a team-high seven dimes. He's not known for being much of a distributor throughout his career, but if he assumes more responsibility in the playmaking department, DeRozan's upside could reach a whole new level in 2020-21. He averaged 22.1 points with 5.6 assists per game last season.
DeRozan will exercise his player option for the 2020-21 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
While DeRozan would have had some suitors on the open market, he'll instead delay his free agency by one year and take the $27.7 million owed to him in the final season of his contract. The four-time All-Star averaged 22.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game last season, and he could find himself on the trade market if the Spurs opt to take a more youth-oriented approach.
DeRozan is not in the Spurs' starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Jazz, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
With the Spurs having been eliminated from playoff contention Thursday afternoon, they've pulled DeRozan from the lineup, and it's unlikely the veteran will take the floor. Dejounte Murray, Lonnie Walker, and Jakob Poeltl will remain in the lineup, while Keldon Johnson and Luka Samanic start in place of DeRozan and Derrick White.
DeRozan had 23 points (9-13 FG, 5-6 FT) and six rebounds in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.
The veteran continues to be a steady presence for the Spurs as they hang around in the battle for the final playoff spot out West. DeRozan had another efficient scoring game, hitting nine of his 13 field goals, while adding four assists, two steals and a block.
DeRozan had 27 points (10-16 FG, 7-7 FT) and four rebounds in Sunday's win over the Pelicans.
DeRozan once again led the way for the Spurs' offense, which put up 122 points -- including 41 in the fourth quarter. He hit a key, pull-up jumper to ice the game and also added two assists and one steal in 33 minutes.
