Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) is out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Dieng will be sidelined for the fourth straight contest with a right shoulder injury. Drew Eubanks should work as the reserve option at center for the Spurs.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) will remain out for Monday's game against Orlando, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

Both Dieng and Trey Lyles (ankle) will miss another contest, so the Spurs will be without a couple of their frontcourt depth pieces. Dieng has appeared in three games since joining the Spurs on March 30, though he's totaled just 25 minutes played in those contests.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) is out Sunday against the Mavericks, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Dieng continues to deal with a right shoulder injury and will miss a second game in a row. His next chance to play is Monday against the Magic.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Ruled out, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) is ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Dan Weiss of Fox Sports Southwest reports.

Dieng will sit out Friday's contest in order to manage his lingering shoulder injury. His absence could allow Drew Eubanks to see a slight uptick in playing time, but Dieng was only averaging 15.8 minutes per contest when healthy.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Not looking good for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) is not expected to face the Nuggets on Friday, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Dieng managed to play through his lingering shoulder injury during the Spurs' last two contests, but it looks like he'll have to rest Friday. He generally only handles a depth role for San Antonio, in any case.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Uncertain for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) is questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

Dieng has been dealing with a right shoulder injury of late that recently caused him to miss two games. After appearing in the last two contests, Dieng is back on the injury report and his status for Friday remains uncertain.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Filling small role off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng has logged 19 minutes off the bench in his first two games since returning from a shoulder injury, tallying a combined total of eight points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and two steals during his time on the court.

San Antonio has been rolling out a three-man center rotation since Dieng's return, with starter Jakob Poeltl getting the bulk of the minutes while Dieng and Drew Eubanks pick up the scraps. Head coach Gregg Popovich could open up some extra run for one of Dieng or Eubanks by removing the other player from the rotation, but neither player is expected to dramatically cut into Poeltl's playing time or usurp him for the starting role.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) will be available for Monday's game against the Cavs, Spurs writer Matthew Tynan reports.

Dieng sprained his right shoulder almost immediately after joining the Spurs, but he'll ultimately only miss two games. In his lone appearance since coming over from Memphis, Dieng logged six minutes in a win over the Kings on Wednesday.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Chance to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against Cleveland, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Dieng's shoulder injury has forced him to sit out the last two games, but it looks like he has at least a shot to return as early as Monday. His availability against the Cavaliers could come down to how well he handles pregame warmups.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Could be out one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) could be out for about a week, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

The timetable was provided by coach Gregg Popovich, who noted that it's just his guess, and it will depend on pain tolerance. This isn't a great start for Dieng's tenure in San Antonio.

April 1, 2021 02:32 PM
Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (shoulder) is out Thursday against the Hawks, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Dieng suffered a sprained right shoulder in his Spurs debut Wednesday, and he'll sit out Thursday's action as expected. More information regarding his timetable for a return may arrive in the coming days.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Picks up shoulder sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng won't return to Wednesday's game against the Kings after suffering a sprained right shoulder, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

In the 31-year-old's first appearance with the Spurs after signing over the weekend, he scored one point (1-2 FT) and recorded no other stats in six minutes before leaving with the injury. Dieng should be considered questionable for the second half of the back-to-back set Thursday versus the Hawks until the team updates his status.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Set for Spurs debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (not injury related) isn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

The 31-year-old sat out Monday's matchup with Sacramento after agreeing to a contract over the weekend, and he's on track to make his debut with the Spurs on Wednesday. Dieng is expected to operate as the backup center behind starter Jakob Poeltl for his new team.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Won't debut Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng will not be available for Monday's game against the Kings.

Dieng and the Spurs officially came to terms on a contract Sunday, but he'll be held out Monday -- likely for logistical reasons. The Spurs have an off day Tuesday before a rematch against the Kings on Wednesday night, so that game will likely mark Dieng's debut.

Spurs' Gorgui Dieng: Lands with Spurs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng agreed to a contract Sunday with the Spurs, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

A few days after being bought out by Memphis, Dieng quickly found a new home with San Antonio. The Spurs will clear room on the 15-man roster for Dieng by waiving Marquese Chriss (lower leg), who was already ruled out for the season. The 31-year-old Dieng is expected to step in as the backup center behind Jakob Poeltl, as the team had been relatively thin at the position since mutually parting ways with LaMarcus Aldridge earlier this month. In 22 games with Memphis this season, Dieng averaged 7.9 points on 51.9 percent shooting from the field to go with 4.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 16.9 minutes per game.

Gorgui Dieng: Let go by Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng was waived by the Grizzlies on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Dieng's role had fallen by the wayside lately. The last time he played consecutive games was Feb. 10 and 12, and the last game he appeared in was Feb. 28. In becoming a free agent, Dieng essentially joins the list of buyout candidates looking for new homes, including Andre Drummond and LaMarcus Aldridge. Dieng has upside as a depth big man for a competitive squad. Since 2017-18, he's averaged 6.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.3 combined steals-plus-blocks in 16.0 minutes. He's also shot 36.3 percent from the field and has utility for teams searching for a stretch-five.

Grizzlies' Gorgui Dieng: Doesn't see floor Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng didn't play during Thursday's loss to the Bucks.

Dieng was absent from the lineup for a second straight matchup. The center has now accumulated seven DNP-coach's decisions over the past 11 games, though Dieng has made the most of his minutes when he sees the floor averaging 8.0 points.

Grizzlies' Gorgui Dieng: Scores 15 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng had 15 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 23 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss against the Suns.

Dieng didn't have his best performance Saturday and was forced to embrace a bigger role off the bench due to the fact the Grizzlies were extremely shorthanded in terms of depth, but he responded and reached the 15-point mark for the fourth time this season. He was aided by the fact he made eight trips to the charity stripe, though, because he would've had a rather pedestrian fantasy output otherwise.

Grizzlies' Gorgui Dieng: Excluded from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Friday in the Grizzlies' 109-95 win over the Pistons.

The recent return of Brandon Clarke from a calf injury along with head coach Taylor Jenkins' choice to deploy Kyle Anderson more frequently at power forward appears to have bumped Dieng out of the rotation. Dieng has played only five minutes over the Grizzlies' last four games, with Jenkins leaning on Anderson, Jonas Valanciunas, Clarke and Xavier Tillman as the team's four primary big men.

February 6, 2021 08:40 PM
Grizzlies' Gorgui Dieng: Starting next to Tillman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng will start Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.

Dieng will get the start next to Xavier Tillman. However, Jonas Valanciunas is also available. As a result, the potential workload of all three big men is somewhat unclear.
