With his team's depth this season, Nando De Colo hasn't seen much playing time with the San Antonio Spurs.
With the lack of playing time, the team has sent him to the Austin Toros, owned by the Spurs organization, to see time on the court and keep sharp if his services are needed during a long NBA season. While De Colo's services haven't been on high demand from the silver and black, there is a team out there that's interested in his services.no comments
According to Fox 29 San Antonio, a sexual assault of a 17-year old teenage girl occurred at a Spurs home game this season at the AT&T Center in one of the bathrooms.
It's always good to hear previous coaches that have come from an organization that the San Antonio Spurs have and are known for and to this day you can still hear the praises the front office and the coaching staff still get.
Atlanta Hawks coach and former Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer talked with Paul Clarke of GiveMeSport praising the organization and talked about what it was like to watch Tony Parker emerge as one of the premier point guards in the league today.
During the interview with Clarke, Budenholzer, or Coach Bud as he is known around these parts, was asked how much he learned from his experience with the San Antonio Spurs, mind you he was with the organization since 1996, and how that made him the coach that he is today.no comments
First year Spurs big man Jeff Ayres has been getting pretty regular minutes thus far this season, and seems to be picking up the Spurs vaunted system pretty well. In particular his rebounding numbers have increased every month this year. So far in January Jeff is averaging 6 RPG as opposed to the two he averaged in the first month of the season. This bodes well for him and the Spurs as the Spurs really needed to get more rebounding from someone in their front court that is not named Tim Duncan.no comments
During the last two seasons, the San Antonio Spurs’ bench has been a tale of two benches.
In the regular season, the bench has looked like world beaters by getting victories against playoff contenders without “the Big Three” of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan. During the playoffs though “the Big Three” have been left to do the heavy lifting and hit clutch shots with only Kawhi Leonard being the sole source of support.no comments
Before Monday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the San Antonio Spurs announced one of their guards would be joining Tiago Splitter on the injured list while the other injured one wouldn’t just return to action, but start as well.
With Danny Green being injured for approximately four weeks, it was Manu Ginobili who returned to the team and got the initial start at shooting guard, as Tony Parker’s 27 points and 7 assists helped San Antonio fight against the pesky-injury ravaged Pelicans in a 101-95 victory that came within the last five minutes of the fourth quarter.

The San Antonio Spurs were hit with some bad news today as shooting guard Danny Green will miss the next four weeks. Green underwent an MRI today, and the team announced he has suffered a break in the second metacarpal bone of his left hand.
During the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves yesterday, Green was seen pointing to his left hand. Many at first thought it was a sprain to his finger but as stated, the X-Ray and MRI confirmed the break.
Green will most likely be replaced by either Manu Ginobili or Marco Belinelli, I believe Belinelli will be inserted into the starting five as he has been playing great basketball as of late.no comments
Boris Diaw has been dubbed as many things in his career for his play, with his recent play lately against the likes of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Love, you can add defensive stopper to that list......wait a minute, what?
Diaw will not turn heads for his speed or lack thereof but with what he can do as a big man on the floor for the San Antonio Spurs. You don't see many big men that know what their role is on the floor. Diaw in fact, does just that. He does not go out and do anything out of the ordinary. He puts a stamp on any game, he does things in games that do not show up in the boxscore. this is what makes him a consummate player.
What Diaw has been doing is putting his body on defenders, and it has caused those to be uncomfortable. Against Dirk Nowitzki and recently Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Diaw has done about as good of a job that you could ask against two of the leagues premier power forwards.no comments
