Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Scores 16 points in 19 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl poured in 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 128-114 win over the Rockets.

Poeltl came off the bench while Trey Lyles started alongside LaMarcus Aldridge down low. Whether Poeltl ends up coming off the bench or starting or oscillates between the two roles depending on matchups, he's a fairly well-rounded contributor capable of producing in every category except threes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Pushed to bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl will come off the bench for Wednesday's tilt with the Rockets, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Poeltl will head to the bench for Wednesday's tilt with Houston while LaMarcus Aldridge will re-join the starting-five. Poeltl started 24-of-77 games a year ago, most of which came in the final quarter of the season.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Well-rounded line in Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl compiled 12 points (6-7 FG, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, and four assists in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 Game 5 loss to the Nuggets.

Poeltl once again drew the unenviable task of defending Nikola Jokic. While Poeltl struggled to contain Jokic once again, San Antonio's 23-year-old center produced playoff career highs in scoring and assists and continues to receive ample minutes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Nears double-double in Game 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl pitched in eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 117-103 Game 4 loss to the Nuggets.

Poeltl was one of two Spurs to earn at least 30 minutes, and he continues to spend the majority of contests covering Nikola Jokic. Poeltl has now seen 30-plus minutes in consecutive tilts, and he's been posting solid rebounding numbers here in these playoffs. Still, his production across most categories remains limited.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Influential despite low production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl had just six points, six rebounds, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during Saturday's 101-96 victory over Denver.

Poeltl played 21 minutes as a starter but managed just six points and six rebounds. The numbers were far from impressive, however, he certainly impacted the game, limiting Nikola Jokic to just 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting. He should continue to start for the duration of the series but is unlikely to put up any sort of dominant production.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl will start Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Poeltl will grab the start at center with LaMarcus Aldridge shifting down to power forward and Rudy Gay heading to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets. In 20 previous starts this year, Poeltl's averaging 5.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 blocks in 21.3 minutes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Shifts to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl will come off the bench Sunday against Sacramento, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.

Poeltl was initially listed in the starting lineup, but the Spurs made a last-second change. Rudy Gay will start at power forward, allowing LaMarcus Aldridge to move to center. There's been no news of an injury to Poeltl, so he should see a solid chunk of minutes off the bench.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Pulls down 10 boards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl totaled six points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks in 25 minutes during Sunday's 115-96 victory over Boston.

Poeltl finished with 10 boards and two blocks in 25 minutes Sunday, his highest amount of playing time in his last three games. Poeltl has the ability to make a difference in the blocks category but is more of a situational player in both fantasy and reality. The minutes are hard to predict and so he is a risky streaming option across most competitive formats.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Coming off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl will come off the bench Friday against the Rockets, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports.

Coach Gregg Popovich is opting to start Rudy Gay over Poeltl. In 50 appearances off the bench this season, the center is averaging 5.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 14.5 minutes.

March 17, 2019 07:48 AM
Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Block party continues Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl finished with eight points (4-7 FG), six rebounds, five blocks, and one assist in 25 minutes during Saturday's 108-103 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Poeltl had five blocks for the second straight game Saturday, helping the Spurs to an impressive victory over Portland. Much like last season, Poeltl has turned things around from a fantasy perspective and is certainly on the radar to be rostered in many formats moving forward. He typically doesn't score a lot of points but is extremely efficient from the field and can add rebounds and blocks at a high rate.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Blocks five shots in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl had 12 points (6-7 FG), nine rebounds, five blocks, two assists, and two steals in 27 minutes during Friday's 109-83 victory over the Knicks.

Poeltl was excellent Friday, coming within one rebound of a double-double while adding a season-high five blocked shots. This was almost certainly Poeltl's best game of the season and demonstrates his fantasy potential. Granted this performance came against the lowly Knicks and was the first time he has scored in double-digits in his last five games. He is more of a blocks and rebounds streamer in 12-team formats, but could start to trend up if the playing time continues.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Plays big minutes in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl (hamstring) re-entered the starting five at center and logged 27 minutes in Sunday's 121-114 win over the Bucks, finishing with eight points (4-4 FG), eight rebounds and three assists.

Poeltl was sidelined for the Spurs' previous game Wednesday in Atlanta due to the injury, but the extended break between contests provided sufficient recovery time. The big man has averaged 7.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks while shooting 68.4 percent from the field over his last four appearances, all starts. The Spurs seem committed to using Rudy Gay off the bench at the moment, so Poeltl looks likely to stick on the top unit as part of a super-sized frontcourt with LaMarcus Aldridge.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Says he'll play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl (hamstring) practiced Saturday and said he will play Sunday against the Bucks, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Left hamstring soreness prevented the center from playing during Wednesday's win over the Hawks, but the expectation is that he'll be back in action against Milwaukee. He's started in each of his past three appearances, averaging 7.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, 1.0 steal and 1.0 assist across 26.0 minutes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Listed as out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl (hamstring) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

Poeltl is battling a sore left hamstring, and while the Spurs hoped he'd be able to play through it, it looks as though he'll be held out Wednesday night. Poeltl's absence could mean Davis Bertans will return to the starting five, which would bump LaMarcus Aldridge up to the nominal center spot.

March 5, 2019 03:56 PM
Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Game-time call vs. Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl is questionable for Wednesday's game against Atlanta due to left hamstring soreness, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

It's unknown as to when this latest injury cropped up, but his status for San Antonio's upcoming matchup is in jeopardy at this point. He'll likely test the hamstring in either morning shootaround or pregame warmups before a decision on his availability is made.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Fills box score in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl pitched in five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, two steals, and one assist in 26 minutes during Saturday's 116-102 win over the Thunder.

Poeltl has combined to earn 60 minutes across the last two contests. He was dominant in Wednesday's win over the Pistons, in which he posted 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 FT), 14 boards, three blocks, and one dime across 34 minutes. Given that Pau Gasol was recently bought out, Poeltl has less competition for minutes and could be a sneaky add if he continues to earn decent playing time.

February 27, 2019 07:00 PM
Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl will start Wednesday against Detroit, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports.

The Spurs are going with their "big" lineup against the Pistons on Wednesday, meaning Poeltl will start in place of teammate Rudy Gay.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Meager numbers in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl put up eight points (4-5 FG), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 24 minutes Saturday in the Spurs' 125-105 loss to the Jazz.

Poeltl drew his second start in as many games with Rudy Gay (ankle) sitting out. Even if Gay's injury proves to be a multi-game concern that allows Poeltl to stick on the top unit, he probably won't offer much appeal as a punt play in DFS. Over his eight starts this season, Poeltl is averaging just 3.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 17.4 minutes per game.

February 9, 2019 04:40 PM
Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl will start at center Saturday against the Jazz, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports.

With Rudy Gay (ankle) sidelined, coach Gregg Popovich will opt to go big against the Utah frontline, starting Poeltl and LaMarcus Aldridge at center and power forward. In seven starts this season, he's averaged 3.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists across 16.4 minutes.

February 7, 2019 04:20 PM
Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Season-high assists in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl compiled seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 FT), six assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 141-102 loss to Golden State.

Poeltl moved into the starting lineup Wednesday, replacing LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) who was sitting this one out. Poeltl finished with just seven points and three rebounds in his 20 minutes but did manage a season-high six assists. Poeltl has been disappointing for the Spurs this season and there is no reason to think that will change any time soon.
