Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Excellent in win over Utah
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl posted 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 30 minutes during Friday's 119-111 win over the Jazz.

This was Poeltl's best game in the bubble, and it came against a short-handed Jazz squad that was without all of its starters except Joe Ingles. Poeltl set a season high with 19 points and only needed 12 shots to do so. Friday also marked Poeltl's fifth performance of the season with double-digit points and multiple blocks.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Posts double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl posted 12 points (6-7 FG, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 23 minutes during Saturday's 124-119 scrimmage loss against the Nets.

Poeltl logged the second-fewest minutes among the starters in this one, but he delivered a strong performance on both ends of the court. The absence of both LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) and Trey Lyles (side) should allow Poeltl to see meaningful minutes at center once play resumes next week. He should make quite an impact if he can repeat this kind of output in the final games of the regular season.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Starts at center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl tallied eight points (4-6 FG) and seven rebounds in Thursday's scrimmage against Milwaukee.

Getting the start at center with no LaMarcus Aldridge or Trey Lyles, Poeltl played 16 minutes, and the Spurs went plus-2 during that time. Poeltl also added two blocks to his ledger. The former Utah standout should be set for an increased role once seeding games begin.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Will play in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl reiterated Thursday that his knee is 100 percent healthy entering the Orlando restart, Jeff Garcia of News 4 in San Antonio reports.

Poeltl said essentially the same thing back in April, but he noted Thursday that he's experienced no setbacks over the last two-plus months. With LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) sitting out, Poeltl could be set for increased minutes down the stretch.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Deems self fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl (knee) said Wednesday that he's made a full recovery from his right MCL sprain and indicated he'll be ready to play when the season resumes, Jeff Garcia of Fox San Antonio reports. "Although I have no experience with knee injuries, I expect that I will have no problems if the season continues," Poeltl said.

Poeltl missed five consecutive games with the injury before the NBA suspended its season, but he had been expected to be ready to go by the end of March. With the big man confirming that he's feeling healthy again, he's expected to step back into his normal role as the Spurs' backup center once the season starts back up. Prior to getting hurt, Poeltl had averaged 5.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.4 blocks in 16.6 minutes per game while shooting 61.9 percent from the field in 58 appearances.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Expects to miss weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl revealed Sunday that he expects to be sidelined 2-to-4 weeks after being diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his right knee, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The reserve center sustained the injury in Saturday's 114-113 win over the Magic, when he bumped knees with another player midway through the first quarter. While San Antonio isn't putting a timeline on Poeltl's return, the big man's own estimate would keep him sidelined until the second half of March. Two-way player Drew Eubanks or second-year player Chimezie Metu could end up absorbing most of the second-unit center minutes while Poeltl is out.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Diagnosed with sprained MCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained right MCL, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

Poeltl suffered the injury, which was initially called a bruise, during Saturday night's game against Orlando. The Spurs haven't released a timetable, but Poeltl has been ruled out of Monday's game against Indiana, and he could stand to miss extended time.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Out with knee bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl suffered a right knee bruise and won't return to Saturday's game against the Magic, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Poeltl received the spot start in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder), but he played only four minutes and didn't score a point before sustaining the injury during the first quarter. Luke Samanic is up from the G League and could be primed for his NBA debut given San Antonio's frontcourt injuries.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl is in the starting lineup Saturday against the Magic, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) is unavailable, so Poeltl will be called upon for his 10th start of the season. The 24-year-old is averaging 7.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.2 blocks in 27.2 minutes during those contests.

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

Poeltl totaled zero points (0-2 FG), seven rebounds, four blocks, two assists and two steals in 13 minutes during Friday's 113-104 victory over the Jazz.

Poeltl played only 13 minutes Friday but still managed to have an impact in the victory. He continues to come off the bench behind Trey Lyles despite the fact Lyles offers very little in the way of production. The thinking has to be that Lyles can spread the floor for the Spurs, something that Poeltl is unable to do. The minutes are unlikely to increase anytime soon; however, Poeltl remains one of the better blocks streamers across most standard formats.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Loses playing time to Aldridge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl posted four points (2-3 FG, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, three blocks and two assists across 14 minutes off the bench in Monday's 108-105 loss to the Clippers.

Poeltl was able to take advantage while LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) was held out or limited in three of the prior four games, averaging 12.0 points, 8.8 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.8 assists in 22.3 minutes over that stretch while shooting 72.4 percent from the field. Aldridge was ready to handle a more normal workload (34 minutes) Monday and didn't see any action at power forward, leaving only 14 minutes available for Poeltl as the backup center. Unless Aldridge gets hurt again or coach Gregg Popovich is more willing to use him at power forward instead of Trey Lyles and Rudy Gay, Poeltl won't profile as much for than a blocks streamer for fantasy purposes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Productive in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl notched 17 points (7-8 FG, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist in 18 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 114-90 win over the Hornets.

Poeltl has always been more recognized due to his defensive ability, but he has scored in double figures in three of his last four outings. He averages 12.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks while shooting 72.4 percent from the field in 22.3 minutes per game during that stretch, and while he will probably keep coming off the bench in the upcoming contests, he should be productive as long as he gets enough playing time.

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

Poeltl will come off the bench Saturday against the Hornets, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

With LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) back in the starting five after a two-game absence, Poeltl will resume a reserve role. In his past five appearances off the bench, he's averaged 5.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.2 blocks and 1.2 steals in 12.8 minutes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Scores season-high 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl notched 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-8 FT), 13 rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 36 minutes during Monday's 110-109 defeat at Chicago.

It's safe to say he made the most of LaMarcus Aldridge's absence due to a thumb injury. This was Poeltl's highest scoring output of the season, and it came as part of just his second double-double of the campaign; the first was way back on Nov. 23. Poeltl has scored in double figures just five times this season and rarely sees more than 20 minutes on the court, meaning he shouldn't have much upside once he returns to his regular bench role.

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

Poeltl will get the start at center for Monday's game against the Bulls, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Poeltl will replace LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) in the starting lineup. He has averaged 6.9 points and 8.0 rebounds across 26.8 minutes in seven starts this season.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Grabs 10 boards against former club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl provided four points (2-3 FG), 10 rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 20 minutes during Sunday's 105-104 win over the Raptors.

Poeltl had earned 15 minutes or less in six straight showings prior to this one, and he has just six double-digit rebounding efforts through 38 appearances this season. Still, Poeltl is maintaining career-high per-game averages in boards, assists and blocks.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Plays minor bench role in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl logged 13 minutes and supplied two points (1-1 FG), four rebounds and one assist Monday in the Spurs' 126-104 win over the Bucks.

Poeltl's ability to protect the rim and convert from the field at a high clip has made him a mainstay in coach Gregg Popovich's rotation all season, but the center rarely receives enough playing time to make a major impact for fantasy purposes. He's eclipsed 20 minutes just twice in his 13 appearances since moving to the bench, and his role is unlikely to expand while LaMarcus Aldridge is healthy.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Headed back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl is expected to come off the bench Friday night against Sacramento, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

Poeltl has started seven of the last eight contests, though with LaMarcus Aldridge back in action, he'll move back to a bench role. His minutes are expected to decline as a result.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Pulls down career-high 15 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl amassed six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 FT), 15 rebounds, five assists, five blocks and one steal in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 135-133 double-overtime victory over the Rockets.

Poeltl used the elevated run to post a new career high in rebounds, while matching another one with the five rejections. The center is beginning to trend in the right direction, although the absence of LaMarcus Aldridge (thigh) was certainly a factor in this one. Poeltl offers upside in field-goal percentage, rebounds and blocks and is worth a look in 12-team leagues if he can maintain a steady 25-minute role.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl is starting Sunday's game at Detroit, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The 24-year-old came off the bench Friday after starting the previous five games, but he'll reenter the starting lineup with LaMarcus Aldridge (thigh) sidelined. Poeltl is averaging 5.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in 17.5 minutes through 20 games, but he should have an increased workload in Sunday's contest.
