Marco Belinelli started again and scored 20 points for the second straight game on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers, and adding four rebounds and a steal.

Belinelli won the 3-point contest over All-Star Weekend and has scored exactly 20 points in three of his last four games. He had 16 in the other one and has knocked down 13 3-pointers during his hot streak. He'll cool off once the Spurs get healthy, and Manu Ginobili is back (16 points), while Kawhi Leonard is very close to returning from his broken hand. This looks like a sell-high moment for Belinelli, although we doubt you can get much in return for him, despite his recent success.

Marco Belinelli started and finished with 20 points, four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers on 8-of-17 shooting in Tuesday's win.

Manu Ginobili returned from his hamstring injury tonight, but played just 15 minutes. Bello is hot over his last four games, averaging 17.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.5 3-pointers, and while he'll likely cool off again, the 3-point champ deserves to be picked up in most leagues.

Marco Belinelli won Saturday night's Foot Locker Three-Point Contest.

He tied Bradley Beal in the final, then beat him with a score of 24 to get the trophy in the tiebreaker. Belinelli ranks second in the NBA for catch-and-shoot 3-point percentage among players with at least 1.0 makes per game and ranks fifth in overall 3-point percentage, so he certainly had the skill set to win this contest. This year's contest allowed players to place a rack of money balls in a spot of their choosing and all the players either went with the last spot in the court or on the first wing.

Marco Belinelli hit 6-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists on Wednesday, coming up just shy of a triple-double.

Belinelli's hot again, averaging 15.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.8 3-pointers over his last four games. He's been a little hot-and-cold this season, but is getting plenty of minutes with the Spurs dealing with so many injuries. Once they're all healthy, expect plenty of inconsistency from Belinelli.

Marco Belinelli (back) will play against the Pistons on Monday night.

He was listed as probable for today and should not have any restrictions after missing Saturday. Belinelli has been a massive disappointment since Manu Ginobili went down, so he's not necessarily a pickup in most leagues.

Marco Belinelli (back spasms) has been upgraded to probable for Monday's matchup with the Pistons.

He should slide back into the starting SG job, sending Cory Joseph to the bench, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Marco's minutes held in check. He's averaged 10.9 points, 1.4 threes, 2.6 assists and 0.7 steals as a starter this season, good enough for value in deep leagues.

Marco Belinelli's back spasms will prevent him from playing on Saturday.

He's day-to-day and might return Monday vs. the Pistons, the first of San Antonio's final two games before the All-Star break. Nando De Colo (nose) and Tony Parker (back) are both active for the Spurs, and guys like Cory Joseph and Danny Green will also pick up extra minutes with Marco unavailable.

Marco Belinelli (back spasms) will be a game-time decision vs. the Bobcats on Saturday.

Belinelli played 34 minutes while ostensibly playing power forward on Thursday, and it seems the activity took a toll. Owners should check back prior to tip-off for updates, but Belinelli has been a 15th-round fantasy value over the past two weeks so he's not worth gambling on in the majority of leagues. The good news for the Spurs' backcourt is that Tony Parker (back) and Nando De Colo (nose) are both expected to play.

Marco Belinelli scored 12 points in a start at power forward against the Nets on Thursday, adding one board, one assist and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Coach Gregg Popovich is laughing at all of us. Belinelli starting at power forward is one of the more ridiculous lineup moves all season, but we can't say we're surprised. The sharp-shooting Italian has really cooled off as the season has gone on and his stats have been a little underwhelming considering all the injuries to the Spurs.

Marco Belinelli hit just 3-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, three rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

We were hoping for big things from Bello with so many of his teammates hurting, but he's only managed to score between 12 or fewer points over his last five games. He's averaging just 8.6 points, 0.8 steals and 0.8 3-pointers over that stretch, meaning he can possibly be dropped for a hot free agent if you don't need his 3-pointers. He's averaging 1.6 of them on the season, but went a couple games without hitting one that killed his recent average.
