3/6/2014 7:26:00 PM
Description: The Spurs are going with a different look Thursday against the Heat. Instead of starting Tiago Splitter at center with Tim Duncan at power forward, Duncan will slide over to the five with Boris Diaw at the four spot. Splitter will come off the bench. SOURCE: Dan McCarney, San Antonio Express-News
Insight: Miami's lack of a true center (Chris Bosh starts there most nights) allows the Spurs to play a bit smaller. Diaw scored 15 points on 6-for-10 shooting the last time he faced the Heat.
 
3/2/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw had his first double-double since Jan. 28 on Sunday against the Mavs.
Insight: Diaw had 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a block, a steal and a three in the game. In his last 17 games, Diaw has provided 11.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks his last 17 games.
 
2/12/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw came up with 18 points, four assists, three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes Wednesday at Boston.
Insight: That's three straight double-digit scoring games for Diaw, who tends to perform much better with Tiago Splitter out of the lineup.
 
2/8/2014 4:10:00 PM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw (food poisoning) will play Saturday against Charlotte, according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News.
Insight: Diaw had a brief run of fantasy relevance when he averaged 15 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 threes from Jan. 17-28, but he has returned to middling production (6.8 ppg, 2.8 rpg) the last four games.
 
2/8/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw is questionable for Saturday's game against Charlotte due to food poisoning.
Insight: With Duncan back and Diaw likely to return the Spurs frontcourt will be back to their normal rotation.
 
2/6/2014 6:22:00 PM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw won't be in action Thursday against the Nets. SOURCE: Paul Garcia, ProjectSpurs.com
Insight: He's out with food poisoning. That leaves the Spurs incredibly shorthanded for tonight's game. Matt Bonner (3.3 ppg) and Tiago Splitter (8.2 ppg, 6.3 rpg) should both see upwards of 30 minutes on Thursday.
 
1/28/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Spurs F/C Boris Diaw had 22 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two threes in 34 minutes Tuesday at Houston. The 22 points were his most since he had 27 for the Bobcats against the Knicks on Jan. 4, 2012.
Insight: Diaw has made 10-of-11 from 3-point range over the last four games after hitting 13-of-43 in his first 39 contests and scored at least 14 points in five of the last six games. However, Tiago Splitter is expected back by the end of the week or early next week and will take minutes away from Diaw.
 
1/26/2014 4:12:00 PM
Description: Spurs F/C Boris Diaw has scored at least 14 points in four of the last five games.
Insight: Diaw had 15 Sunday at Miami and putting up 21 Friday at Atlanta. The 31-year-old has made 8-of-9 from 3-point range over the last three games after hitting 13-of-43 in his first 39 contests.
 
1/7/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: San Antonio forward Boris Diaw is probable for Tuesday's game against Memphis after dealing with strep throat.
Insight: Diaw is targeting a Tuesday return. That could be good for his fantasy owners as the Spurs are without startering center Tiago Splitter for 3-5 weeks.
 
1/5/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: San Antonio forward Boris Diaw wasn't available Saturday night against the Clippers and is questionable for the Spurs game on Tuesday.
Insight: Diaw was out with strep throat, but is targeting a Tuesday return. That could be good for his fantasy owners as the Spurs will likely be without startering center Tiago Splitter for a while.
 
1/4/2014 6:53:00 PM
Description: San Antonio forward Boris Diaw won't be available Saturday night against the Clippers. SOURCE: Jeff McDonald, San Antonio Express-News.
Insight: Diaw is out with strep throat. Tim Duncan is still the Spurs' main power forward though Matt Bonner and Jeff Ayres could sneak in a few more minutes with Diaw out of the lineup.
 
12/2/2013 1:41:00 PM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw is doubtful for Monday's game against Atlanta after suffering a dislocated left middle finger.
Insight: The injury looked a lot worse than it was - no ligament damage. Diaw is a solid role player who is having his best season since 2010-11 (10.4 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.6 apg), but he's still not on the fantasy radar in most leagues.
 
11/30/2013 10:09:00 PM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw suffered a dislocated left middle finger during Saturday's game and will not return, according to Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News.
Insight: Diaw is a solid role player who is having his best season since 2010-11, but he's still not on the fantasy radar in most leagues.
 
11/25/2013 10:32:00 AM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw is questionable for Monday's game against New Orleans due to bruised ribs.
Insight: Diaw missed Saturday's game with Cleveland. He's been a surprisingly good contributor this season averaging 11.1 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 1.8 apg in around 23 mpg.
 
11/23/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: San Antonio forward Boris Diaw will take the night off Saturday to rest his bruised ribs. SOURCE: Spurs on Twitter
Insight: Diaw has been surprisingly productive this season, averaging double-digit points for the first time since 2011. Matt Bonner and Jeff Ayres figure to see more playing time than usual while he's out.
 
11/1/2013 2:23:00 PM
Description: Spurs big man Boris Diaw will start in place of Tim Duncan in friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Insight: Diaw had a solid opening game with 14 points, four rebounds and a block in 20 minutes of action.
 
5/6/2013 9:54:00 PM
Description: Boris Diaw will start at center Monday against the Warriors.
Insight: Diaw had a cyst removed from his spine last month, causing him to miss the last five games of the regular season and the first four of the postseason. He's only starting because Tiago Splitter is out with an ankle injury. Diaw will probably wind up splitting minutes with DeJuan Blair.
 
4/10/2013 11:51:00 AM
Description: Spurs center Boris Diaw is expected to miss Wednesday's game against Denver. Diaw has been bothered by a strained back.
Insight: Diaw (5.8 ppg, 3.4 rpg) has little fantasy value even when healthy.
 
3/6/2013 8:56:00 PM
Description: Spurs center Boris Diaw will be available for Wednesday's game versus the Bulls. Diaw has been bothered by a strained back.
Insight: Diaw (5.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg) has missed San Antonio's last two games so this will be his first game action since last Wednesday against Phoenix. His season-high in points is only 16 so there isn't a lot of upside here.
 
3/6/2013 10:36:00 AM
Description: San Antonio PF/C Boris Diaw is questionable for Wednesday's game against Chicago with a strained lower back.
Insight: He has missed two consecutive games, but he's not a fantasy-worthy asset and his missed time only means more playing time for Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter who are viable fantasy options.
