Duncan scored 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-4 FT) with 12 rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Monday's win over the Clippers.

It's his third straight double-double and eighth in his last nine games, although he did miss three games in the middle in that run. The Spurs are doing what they can to keep Duncan healthy for the postseason, and in return he's doing everything he can to get them there.

Duncan will be held out of Saturday's game to rest.

This should surprise nobody, as he has played 91 minutes total in the Spurs last two games, both of which went into triple overtime. Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes all figure to see increased run Saturday.

Duncan played in 43 minutes Friday in a triple overtime loss to the Trail Blazers, scoring 32 Points (12-24 FG, 8-9 FT) and grabbing 10 rebounds.

This was the Spurs' second consecutive 3OT game, and Duncan has combined to play 91 minutes in those matchups. This playing time guarantees that Duncan (and the rest of the Spurs' veterans, for that matter) will get some nights off in the near future.

Duncan dropped 23 points (9-22 FG, 5-15 FT), 16 rebounds, five assists, two steals and three blocks in 48 minutes during the Spurs' 117-116 loss versus the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Duncan struggled mightily from the free-throw line while committing four turnovers, but it was another great stat line from the "Big Fundamental," whose buzzer-beating bank shot from the top of the key sent the game into triple overtime. Though he is always a candidate to be rested on any given night, Duncan is still a stud fantasy producer regardless of format. The Spurs are back in action on Friday versus the Blazers.

Duncan will be rested for Monday's game against the Blazers.

Coach Gregg Popovich is notorious for resting his aging stars, and Duncan will sit out his third contest of the month. Manu Ginobili (back), Patty Mills (shoulder), Tony Parker (hamstring) and Tiago Splitter (calf) are out as well, so the Spurs will be forced to significantly shuffle the starting lineup.

Duncan (rest) will not play Wednesday night against the Knicks.

Duncan will take a seat along with Tony Parker (hamstring), Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Manu Ginobili (rest). As a result, look for Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner to see extra work down low for the Spurs.

Duncan could be rested for Wednesday's matchup with the Knicks.

With the Spurs facing a lowly Knicks team on the second night of a back-to-back, Duncan could take the night off after playing 36 minutes Tuesday. Manu Ginobili (rest) and Tony Parker (hamstring) are also considered questionable, and given what's happened in the past it would not be a surprise if coach Gregg Popovich ends up holding out all three of his veteran stars.

Duncan scored 23 points (10-16 FG, 3-4 FT) and added 14 rebounds, two assists, three steals and four blocks in 36 minutes of action against the Jazz on Tuesday.

Duncan had a Duncan game - scoring and playing defense. Owners should be excited to see Duncan play 36 minutes because coach Gregg Popovich has usually opted to play Duncan less in regular season games. Duncan is averaging 30 minutes a game this season. Nonetheless, Duncan continues to be effective with his role for the Spurs. He has played great of late and there is no reason to expect this trend to end - unless he plays two games in two nights, then you may see him play a reduced role in the second game, if he plays at all.

Contrary to a previous report, Duncan will play Saturday against the Timberwolves San Antonio News-Express reports.

Previous reports had Duncan slated for a night off to rest his old bones. Instead, he'll be in his usual spot in the starting five. The Spurs will still be without Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, both of whom will receive a night of rest.
