    Walker went for five points (2-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 128-114 win over the Rockets.

    Impact

    Walker struggled from the field and the charity stripe but contributed across every category. Given the team's depth, Walker will likely have his work cut out for himself in terms of consistently earning enough minutes to hold value outside of deeper leagues. Nevertheless, performances like this one are proof of his potential to make a difference when his number is called.

    Walker will get the start for Wednesday's game against Houston, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Impact

    Walker will start at small forward Wednesday. The second-year wing scored eight points in 14 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    News

    Walker will start in place of DeMar DeRozan (rest) during Saturday's preseason game against the Magic, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Impact

    DeRozan was a late scratch Saturday, and the second-year Walker will step in. He saw double-digit minutes in five games last season, averaging 7.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist.

    News

    The Spurs exercised Walker's $2.89 million team option for 2020-21 on Tuesday, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    Walker appeared in just 17 games and shot just 34.8 percent from the field as a rookie, but the Spurs remain bullish on his long-term potential, making it no surprise they decided to keep him in the fold through his third NBA season. While Walker isn't assured a rotation spot entering 2019-20, he should at least have an easier path to gaining playing time after health issues significantly hindered his efforts a year ago.
