Opportunity knocks for Blair

In 2011-12, DeJuan Blair started every game until the Spurs signed Boris Diaw late in the season and once that occurred the forward was relegated to a bench role and many times he didn't get any minutes. That lead to a lot of rumors that he would be traded, but that never came to a fruition. One year later and Blair has a chance to have a big role since Diaw could miss two to three weeks due to a lower back sprain.
