Top Keita Bates-Diop News

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Scores season-high 25 points

    Bates-Diop ended with 25 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Thursday's 129-127 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Bates-Diop was efficient from the field and busy at the charity stripe en route to a season- and team-high 25 points. The versatile forward has drawn nine straight starts and scored in double figures in all but one of those contests, averaging 14.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 25.6 minutes during that stretch.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Available Sunday

    Bates-Diop (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the Kings.

    Bates-Diop has missed just one game since Jan. 23, a rare feat by a Spurs player in that stretch, and has started in six consecutive games. With Keldon Johnson (foot), Jeremy Sochan (knee) and Devin Vassell (knee) all out, Bates-Diop should handle a large offensive workload once again Sunday.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Questionable Sunday

    Bates-Diop is questionable for Sunday's game against the Kings due to a sprained left ankle.

    Bates-Diop has been one of the most reliable Spurs lately from an availability standpoint. He's appeared in 30 of the past 31 games, and in his six consecutive starts, he's averaged 12.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes. Dominick Barlow and Julian Champagnie could see extra minutes if Bates-Diop is ruled out.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Scores 20 points Friday

    Bates-Diop racked up 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and seven rebounds in 28 minutes during Friday's 136-124 loss to the Wizards.

    Bates-Diop reached 20 or more points for the fourth time in his career, and fantasy managers will be glad to see his minutes and usage trend back up. Availability will be a big question mark for seemingly the entire roster going forward, but Bates-Diop has really emerged as a reliable source of points, rebounds and three-pointers for fantasy managers.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Scores 11 second-half points

    Bates-Diop produced 14 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 130-94 loss to Milwaukee.

    Bates-Diop produced 11 of his 14 points in the second half to finish second behind Devin Vassell (16) as the Spurs' scoring leader. Though he's often been one of head coach Gregg Popovich's preferred spot-starting options and hasn't been subject to rest days or getting games off for minor injuries compared to some of the Spurs' other key rotation players, Bates-Diop's fantasy upside is still fairly low. He's averaging 11.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.3 three-pointers and 0.8 steals in 22.0 minutes over 10 March appearances while shooting 58.1 percent from the field.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Set to start Tuesday

    Bates-Diop is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Pelicans, Paul Garcia of reports.

    Bates-Diop will replace Keldon Johnson (neck) in the starting five Tuesday. Bates-Diop is averaging 11.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 28.4 minutes across his previous 31 starts this season.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Upgraded to available

    Bates-Diop (Achilles) is available for Sunday's matchup against the Hawks.

    Surprisingly, Bates-Diop has been upgraded from doubtful to available and will suit up for a second straight matchup following a one-game absence due to Achilles soreness. He played just 13 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to Memphis but was still able to post 11 points (3-4 FG), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in limited action.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Bates-Diop (Achilles) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Hawks, Paul Garcia of reports.

    Bates-Diop saw 13 minutes during Friday's loss to the Grizzlies, but that caused a flare-up in his Achilles soreness. In his presumed absence, more minutes should be available for Dominick Barlow and Sandro Mamukelashvili.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Will be available, per coach

    Head coach Greg Popovich said Bates-Diop (Achilles) will be available Friday versus Memphis, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Bates-Diop didn't suit up for Wednesday's loss to Dallas due to left Achilles soreness, but he'll return to action Friday. Before he was sidelined, he started 10 of the Spurs' previous 11 matchups and averaged 11.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 27.8 minutes, but the Spurs are closer to full strength now, so it's unclear what his role will be against the Grizzlies.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Questionable Friday

    Bates-Diop (Achilles) is questionable for Friday's game against Memphis, independent NBA writer Matthew Tynan reports.

    Bates-Diop missed Wednesday's game against the Mavericks due to left Achilles soreness, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to return Friday. Keldon Johnson will suit up once again Friday, so Bates-Diop will likely see fewer minutes once he's cleared to return.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Out Wednesday

    Bates-Diop has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks due to soreness in his left Achilles.

    KBD had been playing relatively well with some extended minutes over the past few games with Keldon Johnson (foot) watching from the sidelines. With Johnson cleared for Wednesday's game, Bates-Diop was set to see a reduction in minutes anyway. His next opportunity to play will come Friday versus Memphis.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Solid production in win

    Bates-Diop provided 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 132-114 victory over the Magic.

    Bates-Diop continues to be a steady force for an injury-plagued Spurs squad. The 2018 second-round pick has started 10 of San Antonio's past 11 games and is averaging 11.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 27.8 minutes with 50/40/81 shooting splits. Bates-Diop's role doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon, so fantasy managers can safely expect the same type of steady production from him during the stretch run.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Efficient in return to first unit

    Bates-Diop posted 12 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 25 minutes during Sunday's 102-90 loss to the Thunder.

    Bates-Diop returned to the starting lineup due to the absence of Jeremy Sochan (knee), and he made the most of his chances by hitting 71.4 percent of his attempts from the field. He also secured seven boards, his best mark since Jan. 30 against Washington. Bates-Diop has now scored in double figures in each of his last four starts.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Rejoins starting unit

    Bates-Diop is starting Sunday's game against Oklahoma City.

    The 27-year-old came off the bench Friday against the Nuggets but will rejoin the starting lineup since Jeremy Sochan (knee) is out Sunday. Bates-Diop has started in 17 of his last 19 appearances and has averaged 10.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 28.5 minutes per game during that time.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Removed from starting lineup

    Bates-Diop isn't in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Nuggets.

    Bates-Diop will be replaced by Jeremy Sochan in the starting lineup Friday. Bates-Diop is averaging 4.7 points and 1.8 rebounds in 12.3 minutes across his 21 games coming off the bench this season.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Scores team-high 17 points

    Bates-Diop supplied 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), one rebound and one block over 23 minutes during Sunday's 142-110 loss to Houston.

    Bates-Diop led the Spurs in scoring in this blowout loss, but this was probably due to a combination of things rather than him assuming a dominant role on offense. In other words, don't expect him to become one of the team's go-to players on offense overnight. Bates-Diop is averaging 10.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game since the start of February (14 games).

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Solid all-around effort

    Bates-Diop ended Saturday's 122-110 loss to Houston with 11 points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, six assists and three steals across 30 minutes.

    Bates-Diop didn't have his best shooting performance, but he still posted a decent stat line thanks to his contributions in other categories. The former Ohio State standout has started each of San Antonio's last seven games and is averaging 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in that span.

  • Spurs' Keita Bates-Diop: Modest production in loss

    Bates-Diop contributed 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists over 29 minutes during Thursday's 142-116 loss to the Mavericks.

    With the team dealing with numerous injuries, Bates-Diop has started three straight and 12 of the Spurs' past 13 contests. During that stretch, he's averaging 11.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals-plus-blocks in 29.0 minutes per game. He's been a solid rotational piece for San Antonio all season, but as long as Tre Jones (foot), Devin Vassell (knee), Jeremy Sochan (quadriceps), Khem Birch (knee) and Romeo Langford (thigh) remain sidelined, Bates-Diop figures to continue garnering an increased role and should remain relevant in deeper fantasy leagues.
