News: Splitter (calf) seems unlikely to be ready to take the court for the season opener, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The report stated that coach Gregg Popovich "seems resigned" to starting the season without Splitter, which would mean that the backup center will likely be out at least until the Oct. 31 game against the Suns.

News: Leonard (eye) seems unlikely to be ready to take the court for the season opener, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The report said coach Gregg Popovich "seems resigned" to starting the season without Leonard, which shouldn't come as a surprise, given how drawn out Leonard's bout with pink eye has been. It's not something that should keep him out for a significant period of time, but those in weekly leagues should probably get a solid backup plan in place for the first week of the season. Manu Ginobili and Marco Belinelli would be the most likely options to replace Leonard in the starting lineup, but predicting Spurs' lineup changes can be something of a fool's errand.

News: Leonard met with an eye specialist Thursday and his pink eye has moderately improved, the San Antonio Express-News reports. However, he is set to miss Friday's final preseason game and will return to the specialist Monday to determine his status for the season opener against the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Impact: Friday's absence will be the sixth consecutive preseason game that Leonard will have to sit out with pink eye. This particular type of ailment shouldn't cause problems for Leonard's long-term viability this season, although it's within the realm of possibility that he'll have to sit the home opener against the Mavericks.

News: Leonard (eye) will be evaluated Thursday, the San Antonio Express reports.
Impact: Leonard's eye concern is viral in nature, leaving his status up in the air in advance of next Tuesday's season opener versus the Mavericks. When healthy, he's an across-the-board contributor that would benefit greatly from an increased workload. However, there's been no indication that an expansion of last year's 29 minutes per game will indeed occur.

News: Splitter (calf) is unlikely to suit up for Wednesday's preseason game versus the Hawks, the San Antonio Express-News reports. Speaking of his starting center, coach Gregg Popovich said, "I don't know when he's going to be ready. Hopefully by the time the season starts [on Tuesday]."
Impact: If he fails to take the court Wednesday, Splitter will have one opportunity remaining to make his presence felt in an exhibition before tipping off the regular season against the Mavericks. At the moment, no time line exists for his return to action.

News: Duncan won't suit up for Monday's preseason game against the Kings, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Duncan is resting for the second time during exhibition season, but his three appearances have revealed that Father Time has yet to catch up to him. Overall, he's averaged 16 points (on 64.3 percent shooting), 7.7 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 29.7 minutes. As he enters his age-38 campaign, he continues to represent a steady option to fantasy frontcourts, with the condition that occasional absences are expected (he took 21 DNPs combined over the last two years).

News: Splitter (calf) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against Miami, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Splitter is still hobbled by a strained calf muscle, and at this point, it seems like something that could keep at less than 100 percent entering the regular season. The 29-year-old was to be re-evaluated earlier this week, but that evaluation did not yield a set timetable for his return, at least not one that was made public.

News: Parker will not play in Saturday's preseason game against Miami, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: It's merely a day of rest for Parker, who played a combined 93 minutes in the Spurs' first three preseason games, including 22 against Phoenix on Thursday.

News: Leonard (eye) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against Miami and could miss the remainder of the exhibition slate, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The infection has spread to Leonard's left eye, and while the issue is not believed to be anything serious, the Spurs plan to take all the necessary precautions with the 2014 Finals MVP. Leonard has played in just one game so far this preseason, scoring 14 points with seven rebounds and four steals in 29 minutes in the opener against Alba Berlin back on Oct. 8.

News: Ginobili is dealing with aches and pains in his Achilles and small toe, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: While Ginobili's aches and pains probably aren't enough to hold him out of competition, the fact that he's already struggling to stay on the court is concerning for the long haul of the season. He dealt with a stress fracture during the offseason which limited his ability to train, and he consequentially came into training camp out of shape. The 37-year-old will have to play catch up before the season starts while nursing injuries that won't seem to go away.

News: Splitter (calf) won't travel with team for Thursday's game in Phoenix, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: He was supposed to be reevaluated last week, and presumably they have not yet cleared him to return to game action. It's something that could slow him for the rest of the exhibition season, and it could even linger into the start of the regular season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ginobili won't travel with team for Thursday's game in Phoenix, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: This is simply a rest day for Ginobili and several of the Spurs' other veterans. He will be ready for the start of the regular season.

News: Duncan won't travel with team for Thursday's game in Phoenix, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The Spurs are leaving about one-third of the team in San Antonio, simply to rest them. Look for Duncan to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Heat, and to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leonard has an eye infection and won't travel until it clears up, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: He has already been ruled out for the trip to Phoenix for Thursday's preseason game, and it's not inconceivable that he could miss a couple more exhibitions. Continue to monitor his status leading up to drafts, but he should be ready for the start of the regular season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leonard missed practice Monday with an illness, the San Antonio Express-News' Jeff McDonald reports.
Impact: It's the same illness that kept him out of action in Turkey, but considering it's an illness and not an injury, he should be fine for the start of the regular season.

News: Splitter is out indefinitely with a leg injury.
Impact: Splitter has a strained right soleus, according the Spurs. There is no timetable for his return.
