Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Lands two-way deal with Spurs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop has landed a two-way deal with the Spurs, Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports reports.

Bates-Diop will join his third team in as many seasons since entering the league as a second-round selection in the 2018 NBA Draft. The former Ohio State standout averaged a career-best 6.5 points and 2.9 rebounds in 44 games played last season.

Keita Bates-Diop: Let go by Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets waived Bates-Diop on Sunday, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

Though Bates-Diop was on the books for a modest $1.66 million nonguaranteed deal for 2020-21, the Nuggets evidently didn't see enough from the 24-year-old after acquiring him in February to justify keeping him around for another season. Bates-Diop should get the opportunity to compete for a roster spot with another club during training camp, but any contract he signs likely won't contain much guaranteed money.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Chips in 10 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds in 22 minutes of Monday's 124-121 loss to the Lakers.

Bates-Diop has played sparingly since the NBA restarted, seeing action in just his third game out of six. On the season, the 23-year-old is averaging 6.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per contest.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Available for restart opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop (coach's decision) is available for Saturday's game against the Heat.

Bates-Diop recently cleared quarantine and has been able to practice enough to build up some wind. Considering Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) are out while Jamal Murray (hamstring ) is questionable, it's possible we see Bates-Diop get some run.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop will not play during Saturday's scrimmage against the Pelicans, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

Bates-Diop recently cleared quarantine but still has to pass a physical before taking the floor. He may be able to play during Monday's scrimmage against the Magic.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop will not play Monday against the Bucks due to a bruised left knee, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

Bates-Diop was just called up from the G League on Sunday, but he won't be available for his first game back with the NBA club.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Called up from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets recalled Bates-Diop from the G League's Windy City Bulls on Sunday.

He'll rejoin the parent club ahead of Monday's game against the Bucks following a one-week stint in the G League. Bates-Diop hasn't been a regular in coach Michael Malone's rotation since being acquired from the Timberwolves prior to the Feb. 6 deadline, and that's unlikely to change while Denver remains at full strength at the forward spots.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Sent to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets assigned Bates-Diop to the G League's Windy City Bulls on Sunday.

Playing time has been hard to come by for Bates-Diop since he was acquired from the Timberwolves on Feb. 4. The second-year forward has made only two appearances with Denver, playing only 19 minutes in total. With Bates-Diop's chances of cracking the rotation not likely to improve anytime soon, the Nuggets will send him to the G League for a spell so he can pick up some steady minutes.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Plays 14 minutes in Nuggets debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop had just four points (1-1 FG, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in 14 minutes during Saturday's 117-108 victory over Phoenix.

Bates-Diop made his debut for the Nuggets after coming over as part of a four-team deal. His role figures to be inconsequential when it comes to standard-league fantasy value. The fact the Nuggets were without three regular rotational pieces and Bates-Diop still only played 14 minutes does not bode well for his immediate future.

Nuggets' Keita Bates-Diop: Traded to Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop is being trading to the Nuggets as part of a four-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

Bates-Diop heads to Denver along with Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh and Shabazz Napier. The second-year big man is averaging 6.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in just under 18 minutes per contest across 37 games with the Timberwolves this season.

Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Playing time on decline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop logged zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and no other statistics across five minutes in Monday's 113-109 loss to the Kings.

Bates-Diop's five minutes were his fewest since Dec. 11, as coach Ryan Saunders elected to give more run to two-way rookie Kelan Martin in the narrow loss. The second-year wing out of Ohio State could face another threat to his playing time if Jake Layman (toe) ever returns from his extended absence, though a potential trade of Robert Covington ahead of Thursday's deadline would presumably free up minutes for both players.

Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Scores 15 in 17 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop totaled 15 points (4-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one block in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 104-99 loss to the Pacers.

Bates-Diop reached double figures in scoring for the third time in the last four games and the fifth time in the last nine. Moreover, he matched his season high in assists, though with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee/illness) nearing his return to the lineup, Bates-Diop could see a reduced role in Friday's rematch versus the Pacers.

Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Full line in 27 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop dialed up 15 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 27 minutes during Monday's 122-115 overtime victory versus the Nets.

Bates-Diop matched career highs in rebounding, steals and blocks while reaching double figures in scoring for the seventh time across 20 appearances this season. The 23-year-old sophomore isn't earning enough minutes on a consistent basis to warrant attention in most formats, but the flashes indicate he's a player who could be worth keeping tabs on as the season progresses.
