The Scoop:He said he didn't have an aggravation on Friday and just stayed on the exercise bike to stay warm. Belinelli is unlikely to get more than minutes in the teens tonight, so he's not worth starting in most leagues.
The Scoop:Belinelli wasn't even certain to play and this start comes out of nowhere, especially since Green has been playing very well lately and San Antonio doesn't have a healthy backup PG. This will likely be a one-game move from Gregg Popovich, so don't overreact to the unusual lineup.
The Scoop:Belinelli is confined to a bench role, and is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers on the year, so his value is limited to deep leagues. If he plays, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green would see a slight reduction in minutes, but Belinelli won't have a large enough impact to hurt either of their values.
Marco Belinelli returned to the lineup on Friday, playing 10 minutes with five points and two boards.
The Scoop:He has been out for over two weeks and the Spurs will likely ease him back in the lineup considering he's dealt with groin issues before. Belinelli isn't going to have much in most leagues while the wings and guards are healthy.
