San Antonio Spurs forward/center Pau Gasol broke the fourth metacarpal in his left hand in pregame warmups on Thursday and will likely be out indefinitely. What It Means: Huge news coming out of San Antonio as Gasol had started 39 of the Spurs 41 games this year. While his overall numbers have dipped, he was playing significant minutes (26.4) for the team every night. There is no timetable for his return at the moment. David Lee started on Thursday in his place and will see the bulk of the minutes with DeWayne Dedmon playing a larger role as well. Lee has averaged 8.7 points...

Spurs' Pau Gasol will have surgery on left hand

San Antonio Spurs forward/center Pau Gasol (left hand) is undergoing surgery to repair the fracture of his fourth metacarpal. What It Means: Gasol suffered the injury during warmups on Thursday and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. The Spurs will likely be even more cautious with his usage upon return, so owners may have to cut ties if they need to keep pace or make up ground in the standings. David Lee, Dewayne Dedmon and Davis Bertans should all see more minutes with Gasol out. Lee has had a very solid season so far, and he ranks 43rd in the NBA and fourth among Spurs players...

It sounds kinda funny until you see it. Then it just looks kinda funny. Before Thursday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets, the Spurs announced that Pau Gasol had broken his fourth metacarpal during warmups. How exactly does a player do that?

David Lee double-doubles in start for San Antonio

San Antonio Spurs forward/center David Lee racked up 10 points and a season-high 16 rebounds in a 118-104 win over the Denver Nuggets. What It Means: Lee drew the start and played 33 minutes with Pau Gasol being sidelined by a broken finger. It remains to be seen whether Lee continues to start with Gasol expected to mix about a month, but he will have some increased fantasy value in Gasol's absence whether he remains in the starting lineup or not. Lee has had a very solid season so far, and he ranks 43rd in the NBA and fourth among Spurs players with a 3.1...

Spurs beat Nuggets soundly, led by Leonard, Murray and Lee

San Antonio picked up its 33rd win of the season but lost Pau Gasol for the near future. The Spurs beat the Nuggets for the twelfth time in their last thirteen meetings and for the eighth-straight time at home on Thursday night. No surprise there, the last time the Nuggets left the AT&T Center with a win was way back in Kawhi Leonard’s rookie season in a game in early March of 2012 when the Spurs’ starting lineup included Richard Jefferson and DeJuan Blair. Both teams were short handed in this game, with the Nuggets missing Darrell Arthur, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Gary...

Who should the Spurs start in Pau Gasol’s place?

Who should the Spurs start in Pau Gasol’s place?

The answer may surprise you. Pretty much from the first week of the season on, informed —or perhaps just curious— Spurs fans have been clamoring for Dewayne Dedmon in the starting lineup instead of Pau Gasol, with their reasoning that the younger, bouncier Dedmon would serve as a better defensive anchor than the aging Gasol, who’s more of an offensive specialist in his golden years. We’ve seen Dedmon play quite a bit instead of the veteran Spaniard in certain match-ups, but the idea of displacing him in the starting lineup permanently was always a long shot. To be fair to Gasol,...
