Gorgui Dieng News
Free-agent center Gorgui Dieng officially signed a one-year deal with the Spurs. The terms of the contract were not disclosed. The 32-year-old has averaged 7.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists since being drafted in 2013. Dieng may not see regular playing time this season. However, he has room to make some appearances in the starting lineup, giving him streaming appeal in all fantasy formats.
Center Gorgui Dieng is set to rejoin the San Antonio Spurs for the 2022-23 season, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. Dieng appeared in 16 games off the bench for San Antonio in '20-21, before playing last year with Atlanta, where he averaged a career-low 8.4 minutes per outing. With Jakob Poeltl holding down starting center duties for the Spurs, Dieng faces an uphill path to garnering significant minutes in the frontcourt, while Zach Collins stands to lead the team's second unit on the glass. The 32-year-old native of Senegal has proven to be a solid per minute contributor when utilized, but he can remain on the waiver wire in all formats until he sees his playing time trend upward.
Atlanta Hawks center Gorgui Dieng (hand) exited Saturday's preseason win over the Memphis Grizzlies. The veteran suffered a sprained right hand and didn't return. Normally, Dieng's ailments over the years haven't impacted fantasy managers much. Yet, with Clint Capela (Achilles) and Onyeka Okongwu (shoulder) expected to miss time during the regular season, the veteran was projected to see an increased role early on. The team will likely provide an update on his health ahead of its next exhibition against Miami. However, if Dieng misses time moving forward, it may force John Collins to get some run in the middle, while Danilo Gallinari could see an uptick in minutes at the four.
San Antonio Spurs center Gorgui Dieng (shoulder) has been cleared to get back into action Friday against Portland, stemming his absence due to a shoulder ailment at four contests. Dieng stands to reprise his marginal role off the bench behind Jakob Poeltl, while his return likely knocks Drew Eubanks from any level of consideration. Since arriving with the Spurs, Dieng has played just a combined 24 minutes, not having established himself as a fantasy asset in any-sized format.
