DeMar DeRozan kept his foot on the gas pedal in Friday's 120-121 loss to the Hawks, collecting 25 points (9-for-18 FG, 7-for-7 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and two steals.
DeRozan has been in beast mode for the last month, returning first-round value in that time. The Spurs are battling for the last playoff spot in the West and will need DDR to deliver like this to make it happen, so unless they fade from the picture and fold up shop, there's nothing to keep him from posting another top-40 season. LaMarcus Aldridge is in that same boat and put up 30 points, five rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes tonight.

DeMar DeRozan was lights out on Wednesday night, dropping 30 points on 12-of-14 shooting to go with five rebounds, seven assists and two steals.
It's worth noting that the scoring damage was done without even attempting a shot from behind the arc. That being said, he is on a roll recently and sits in the top-45 despite his hesitation to pull the trigger from deep.

DeMar DeRozan had a big game in his second return to Toronto on Sunday, leading the Spurs to a comeback win with 25 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals.
DeRozan scored 22 of his points in the second half, including a nasty jam on Chris Boucher that saw the big man get basically Rock Bottomed in mid-air. He went 7-of-11 from the field and 11-for-14 from the charity stripe as his excellent run continues, and DeRozan is now up to a sterling .534 from the field on over 16 shots per game.

DeMar DeRozan dropped 36 points on 11-for-18 shooting in Friday's 121-134 loss to the Grizzlies, adding nine rebounds, nine assists, one triple and a steal.
DeRozan can't stop getting buckets these days. While it is amazing to see, it's unlikely he continues scoring at such an efficient pace and you'd be prudent to see if anyone is willing to part with a top-50 player for the scorching DeRozan.

DeMar DeRozan kept up his crazy-efficient scoring binge on Wednesday with 30 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field and 10-of-10 from the line to carry the Spurs to a win over the Celtics.
DeRozan does not appear to be slowing down and even added six rebounds, four dimes and one steal to the box, for good measure. His scoring, assists and high-volume makes and attempts from both the field and the line have kept him within striking distance of finishing the season as a top-50 player in 8/9-cat.

DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs to a 126-104 home win over the Bucks on Monday with 25 points on 11-of-15 shooting, three boards, seven dimes and even a 3-pointer in 33 minutes.
That's eight straight games in which DeRozan has made more than half his field goals. Over that stretch, he's shooting 64.8 percent, which is incredible for a shooting guard. It's clearly unsustainable, but is indicative of how efficient DeRozan has become, especially since the Spurs don't want him shooting from deep (only five 3-pointers attempted over the eight-game span). He's about as safe as a middle-round player can get unless he gets dealt to a team that uses him in a different role.

DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points on 8-of-14 shooting in Saturday's 118-127 loss to the Bucks, chipping in four rebounds, five assists and a steal.
DeRozan played well in this one but the Bucks were just too much for the Spurs tonight. He shot the ball efficiently tonight on 8-of-14 from the field and 10-of-11 from the charity stripe. Even with the lack of any 3-pointers or defensive statistics, DeRozan is still producing 5th round value for the season. He will hope to keep the momentum going as the Spurs will see the Bucks again as they host them Monday night.

Getting the starting nod, Derrick White scores nine points in Saturday's loss to Bucks, chipping in four rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Filling in for teammate Dejounte Murray, White got the start and played 24 minutes in this one, ceding playing time to Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes. The backcourt situation is a big mess and owners are best set to leave any San Antonio guard not named DeMar DeRozan on the waiver wire.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 30 points in Thursday's 103-109 loss to the Thunder, going 13-of-25 from the field with four rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer.
Not to be outdone, LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in 22 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks and four 3-pointers. Despite all the talk of their demise, these two vets somehow have San Antonio in a playoff spot. Until they fall out of that picture, if they do at all, there won't be anything to worry about with this consistent fantasy duo.

DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 24 points on 11-of-18 shooting, adding five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 38 minutes in an overtime win on Tuesday.
DeRozan just keeps on cruising. Aside from a loss in assists and a gain in field goal percentage, he's sitting at almost identical numbers to last season and providing fifth-round value for the season. His name has popped up in some trade rumors, but wherever he plays, his game is pretty rock solid.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 29 points in Saturday's 136-109 win over the Pistons, adding five rebounds and eight assists while shooting a sterling 13-of-16 from the field.
That's more than enough to overlook a strange 3-of-5 mark at the charity stripe. DeRozan's points, rebounds, assists and steals are all down this year, but his efficiency is up at a clean .510 and he's settling in as a steady top-60 type, as always.

DeMar DeRozan posted 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, four assists and one steal as he led the Spurs in a 98-102 loss to the Mavs on Thursday.
This line has been pretty much the a snapshot of what DeRozan has been delivering all season. He's a solid source of scoring, shooting percentages, assists and some rebounds while he's on the floor.

DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points (10-for-11 FG) on Monday, adding three rebounds, 10 dimes and three steals.
DeRozan didn't even attempt one 3-pointer, but he's still churning out mid-round value due to his efficient scoring and dime dishing ability.
December 22, 2019, 12:19 amDeMar DeRozanSG, San Antonio Spurs
DeMar DeRozan scored a team-high 24 points on Saturday while shooting 9-of-14 from the floor and 6-of-6 from the line.
DeRozan failed to hit a three and didn't record a defensive stat. Those lack of money stats are why DeRozan is struggling to stay in the top-75 despite scoring 20.7 points per game on .499 shooting. He is a safe bet to hover around the top-75 on the season but has limited upside.
December 19, 2019, 11:13 pmDeMar DeRozanSG, San Antonio Spurs
DeMar DeRozan scored 12 points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with four rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in an inefficient Thursday night outing against the Nets.
It was another mediocre outing for DeRozan in a rerun of Monday’s game against the Rockets. He really needs to maintain his shooting efficiency to hold value where he is in the top-75, since he doesn’t add many cash counters. DeRozan should bounce back and be a solid popcorn guy going forward.
