Top Jakob Poeltl News

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Officially ruled out Thursday

    Poeltl (knee) is listed out for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Ty Jager of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

    A report earlier in the day suggested Poeltl would likely miss the contest, and the team has now officially confirmed as such after he missed practice Wednesday. The big man's next opportunity to suit up arrives Saturday versus the Heat, while Zach Collins, Charles Bassey and Gorgui Dieng are candidates to shoulder heavier workloads in his absence.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Likely still out

    Poeltl (knee) will likely be sidelined for Thursday's matchup against the Rockets, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Poeltl didn't practice Wednesday, per independent NBA writer Matthew Tynan, and will likely miss at least one more contest due to a knee bruise. The Spurs haven't released their official injury report yet, but it appears like Poeltl will be doubtful, at best.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Expected to miss a week

    Poeltl (knee) will likely miss a week, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Poeltl suffered a right knee bruise during the Spurs' loss to the Lakers on Saturday and will now remain sidelined for at least another week. Thus, the center will presumably be unavailable for the team's next three matchups before possibly being considered questionable Dec. 8 against the Rockets. Zach Collins will likely slide into the starting lineup with Poeltl out.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Officially out Wednesday

    Poeltl won't take the floor Wednesday versus the Thunder due to a bone bruise in his right knee, Ty Jager of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

    Poeltl was expected to sit after he could not practice Tuesday, and the team has now made that official. The big man's absence could make way for additional minutes for Zach Collins, Charles Bassey and Gorgui Dieng.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Not expected to play Wednesday

    Poeltl (quad) didn't practice Tuesday and isn't expected to take the floor Wednesday versus the Thunder, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Poeltl departed Saturday's game early due to right quad soreness, and the issue appears serious enough to leave his status in question for Wednesday's contest. The injury report later in the day should provide an official lens to view his chances of suiting up, but it doesn't look promising.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Won't return Saturday

    Poeltl has been ruled out for the rest of Saturday's game against the Lakers due to right quad soreness, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    This is awful news for the Spurs, as they will miss their best interior presence on both ends of the floor while also having uncertainty regarding the availability of Jeremy Sochan for the rest of the contest. Poeltl ends Saturday's game with 12 points (6-8 FG), six rebounds and a steal across 10 minutes. His next chance to play will come next Wednesday against the Thunder.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Heads to locker room Saturday

    Poeltl headed to the locker room during the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Lakers due to an apparent ankle injury, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Poeltl felt the discomfort after throwing down a dunk in transition, and he was struggling to move back on defense, so he went to the locker room as soon as he had the chance to do so while looking to be in obvious pain. He should be treated as questionable to return to action.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Will play Wednesday

    Poeltl will play Wednesday against the Pelicans, Bruno Passos of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

    Poeltl was initially deemed questionable after missing Sunday's matchup due to knee soreness, but the big man will be available and presumably return to the starting five Wednesday. Across 17 appearances, Poeltl has averaged 13.6 points, 3.6 assists and 1.1 blocks in 28.5 minutes per game.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Questionable Wednesday

    Poeltl is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Pelicans due to knee soreness, independent NBA writer Matthew Tynan reports.

    Despite sitting out the Spurs' last contest against the Lakers to rest his injury, Poeltl may need at least one more game on the sidelines to fully recover. If that's indeed the case, Zach Collins, who will likely return from a lower leg injury, will presumably slide into the starting lineup.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Sits for second game of back-to-back

    Poeltl will sit out Sunday's game against the Lakers due to right knee soreness, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

    Poeltl had been listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the Clippers with the same injury, but he ultimately started and posted 20 points (8-15 FG, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes in the Spurs' 119-97 loss. Head coach Gregg Popovich didn't indicate after the game that Poeltl was dealing with any sort of setback, so the center is presumably just receiving some extra maintenance in the second half of a back-to-back set, which falls in the midst of a stretch of five games in seven days. Expect Jeremy Sochan, Charles Bassey, Gorgui Dieng and Isaiah Roby to compose the San Antonio frontcourt rotation Sunday.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Pours in 20 points in loss

    Poeltl finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's 119-97 loss to the Clippers.

    Poeltl led the team in scoring on a night where the Spurs failed to gain much traction. The team often lives and dies by Keldon Johnson's success, and his reduced production did not help matters. Poeltl had mounted a three-game double-double streak but has now missed that milestone twice in a row.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Will play Saturday

    Poeltl (knee) will play Saturday against the Clippers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    Poeltl was originally listed as questionable due to right knee soreness, but the issue is not as serious as expected and he'll be playing against Los Angeles. Firmly entrenched as the Spurs' starting center, Poeltl is averaging 16.8 points and 10.0 rebounds per game across his last five appearances.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Questionable Saturday

    Poeltl (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's affair with the Clippers, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

    Poeltl was added to the injury report Friday due to right knee soreness, joining Devin Vassell (ankle) as questionable. Considering Saturday's game is the first half of a back-to-back set for the Spurs, the team could opt to be cautious with Poeltl. If that were to be the case, Charles Bassey and Gorgui Dieng would be in line for expanded minutes.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Dominates down low

    Poeltl posted 31 points (14-17 FG, 3-5 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 117-110 loss to Portland.

    Poeltl unsurprisingly did nearly all of his scoring damage on the interior, and he finished with 18 of his 31 points in the second half on nine of 11 from the field. He also notched his sixth double-double of the 2022-23 campaign, his second in three games.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Grabs 10 boards in loss

    Poeltl produced six points (3-6 FG), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block over 20 minutes during Monday's 132-95 loss to the Warriors.

    Poeltl attempted six or fewer shots for the fifth time this season and failed to score in double figures for the fifth time over his last eight appearances after reaching that plateau in six straight contests to start the campaign. Despite the poor scoring numbers, the veteran big man remains a top-75 fantasy player due to his rebounding and shot-blocking prowess. On the season, Poeltl is averaging 12.1 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 blocks in 28.6 minutes per game.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Stuffs stat sheet, double-doubles

    Poeltl accumulated 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and four blocks across 30 minutes during Friday's 111-93 win over the Bucks.

    Poeltl is not known for his scoring ability and has struggled with consistency at times, but even when he doesn't score at a high rate, he's still producing in other categories, such as rebounds and blocks. A solid pick-up for fantasy managers who need a big man that can produce in several areas, he's averaging career-best numbers in rebounds (9.8), assists (3.8) and steals (1.0) per game while also putting up 12.6 points per contest.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Near double-double in overtime loss

    Poeltl provided 22 points (10-12 FG, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 124-122 overtime loss to the Grizzlies.

    Poeltl finished with a team-high-tying scoring total which marked a new season-high for the center. Poeltl, who finished one rebound shy of recording his fifth double-double of the year, has scored 20 or more points in three games this season.

  • Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Lackluster performance in defeat

    Poeltl finished with six points (3-6 FG), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 143-100 loss to the Raptors.

    Poeltl was held under 10 points for a second consecutive game Wednesday and snapped a streak of five successive outings with at least 10 rebounds. His lackluster results can somewhat be attributed to the fact that he played just 21 minutes in a game with a lopsided final score. Still, it's also been discouraging to see him attempt only eight field goals over the last two matchups. Poeltl will attempt to return to form during a back-to-back set against the Clippers and Nuggets on Friday and Saturday.
