San Antonio Spurs Player News: All Positions

News: Poeltl (knee) said Wednesday that he's made a full recovery from his right MCL sprain and indicated he'll be ready to play when the season resumes, Jeff Garcia of Fox San Antonio reports. "Although I have no experience with knee injuries, I expect that I will have no problems if the season continues," Poeltl said.
Impact: Poeltl missed five consecutive games with the injury before the NBA suspended its season, but he had been expected to be ready to go by the end of March. With the big man confirming that he's feeling healthy again, he's expected to step back into his normal role as the Spurs' backup center once the season starts back up. Prior to getting hurt, Poeltl had averaged 5.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.4 blocks in 16.6 minutes per game while shooting 61.9 percent from the field in 58 appearances.
News: Belinelli (illness) put up 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes Tuesday in the Spurs' 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: Belinelli was available off the bench after missing the previous three games with an illness and was able to seize a rotation role thanks to the absences of Dejounte Murray (calf) and Lonnie Walker (lower leg). The 33-year-old was able to deliver some quality three-point production to go along with little else, which has been a familiar refrain throughout his career. Unless the Spurs decide to the reduce the playing time of rookie first-round pick Keldon Johnson, Belinelli could drop out of the rotation once one of Walker or Murray is back in action.
News: White started at point guard and churned out 14 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, four blocks and two steals in 35 minutes Tuesday in the Spurs' 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: Entering the starting five in place of the injured Dejounte Murray (calf), White came through with a huge all-around stat line while handling a season-high minutes load. The Spurs are listing Murray as out indefinitely, so White looks like he should have a good opportunity to play at or around 30-plus minutes for at least a few more games. The 25-year-old has shown the ability to rack up defensive stats to go with efficient shooting when given extensive playing time in the past, so he'll likely at least have some temporary value in 12-team leagues until Murray returns.
News: Lyles went for 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: Lyles has scored in double digits in five of his last six games, averaging 15.3 points while shooting 47.1 percent from deep during that stretch. He's not going to score at this rate on a nightly basis, so fantasy owners should try to make the most out of Lyles' hot streak. He's providing decent value as a streaming alternative for users looking for points, rebounds and three-point stats.
News: DeRozan chipped in with 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: DeRozan has cracked the 20-point mark just thrice in his last nine games and he's shooting just 47.5 percent from the field during that stretch, which is a downgrade compared to what he's done most of the season. However, he's making strides as a playmaking threat and is averaging 7.8 assists per game during that nine-game span, while registering nine or more dimes five times in that period.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) notched 24 points (10-23 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four blocks, three steals, two rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
Impact: Aldridge returned from a six-game absence and looked impressive, filling out the stat sheet and posting 20-plus points for the third time in his last five outings dating back to last month. The veteran power forward looked healthy, and he should return to be one of San Antonio's most reliable scoring threats now that he's available again.
News: White is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The 25-year-old also received a spot start Friday and is averaging 16.0 points over his last three contests. White is set for an expanded role in the near future with Dejounte Murray dealing with a calf strain.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) will play and start Tuesday against the Mavericks, Evan Closky of KENS 5 reports.
Impact: As expected, Aldridge will make his return Tuesday from a shoulder strain that cost him six consecutive games. He'll re-join the starting five, and it's possible fewer minutes will be given to Trey Lyles.
News: Walker (leg) will not play in Tuesday's game against Dallas, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Impact: Walker is dealing with a bruised shin that will cost him a second consecutive game. Prior to the injury, the second-year guard had averaged 18.9 minutes over seven games since the All-Star break.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Mavs, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Impact: This comes as a surprise, as the Spurs indicated as recently as Monday night that Aldridge would likely miss another game. His sprained right shoulder is apparently feeling better, however, so as of Tuesday afternoon, the expectation is that he'll return after missing the previous six contests.
News: Belinelli is not on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against the Mavs.
Impact: He missed three games with an illness, but the veteran should be back to availability off the bench Tuesday. With Dejounte Murray out, there's a chance he could see a slight bump in minutes, but Belinelli shouldn't be a fantasy consideration in most formats.
News: Walker (leg) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Impact: The bruised shin kept Walker out of Sunday's loss to Cleveland, and the Cavs will wait to see how he feels Tuesday morning before issuing an update. If he's cleared to play, Walker could be set for a boost in minutes in the wake of the calf injury suffered by Dejounte Murray.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) is expected to sit out Tuesday's game against Dallas, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Impact: The Spurs initially hoped Aldridge would only miss a few games, but assuming he sits Tuesday, it will be his seventh consecutive absence. Expect Drew Eubanks and Trey Lyles to continue handling most of the center minutes.
News: Murray has been diagnosed with a calf strain and is without a return timetable, Evan Closky of KENS 5 in San Antonio reports.
Impact: Murray apparently picked up the injury at some point during Sunday's loss to the Cavs, though he didn't appear bothered, as he finished with 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists and six steals in 31 minutes. The Spurs are notoriously withholding when it comes to injuries, so it's unclear how much time Murray could miss. This week, the Spurs play Tuesday, Friday and Saturday before finishing out a four-game homestand March 16 against Memphis.
News: Forbes put up 19 points (6-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), one rebound and one assist across 32 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Impact: With averages of 12.9 points and 2.8 three-pointers on 50 percent shooting from the field since the All-Star break, Forbes has been an efficient complementary scorer for the Spurs. That's about all he's offering, however, as Forbes has supplied all of 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and no blocks in his eight games since the break. He should be viewed strictly as a streamer for 3-pointers in category leagues.
News: DeRozan compiled 25 points (7-19 FG, 11-12 FT), eight boards, four assists and two steals across 42 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Impact: DeRozan made up for his poor shooting from the field by getting the job done at the free-throw line, raising his season-long rate to 84.4 percent after the 11-for-12 showing. The swingman remains allergic to the 3-point line -- he's only attempted one shot from downtown over his last 15 games -- but his ability to get to the line and convert at a high rate along with his exceptional 52.8 field-goal percentage have him on track to finish with a new career high in true shooting percentage. His 59.8 TS% is more than four points higher than his mark from any other season.
News: Eubanks put up six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Impact: Starting in place of the injured LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) for the third time in four games, Eubanks shined in the defensive categories, but he had little else to hang his hat on. He may continue to draw starts while Aldridge and his top backup, Jakob Poeltl (knee), are sidelined, but Eubanks doesn't look like he'll receive the minutes he needs to be a viable fantasy option in most 12-team leagues.
News: White finished with 17 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), three assists and one steal across 25 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Impact: After moving into the starting five for Friday's loss to the Nets and turning in a quality stat line (19 points, three blocks, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes), White dropped back to the bench as Drew Eubanks received the nod in place of the injured LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder). White didn't see much of a drop in playing time and cleaned up at the free-throw line, but the lack of boards and limited defensive stats probably left fantasy managers disappointed. He'd likely be a clear must-roster option in standard leagues if the Spurs committed to using him in a 30-minute role, but it's unclear whether coach Gregg Popovich intends to do that at any point.
News: Gay finished Sunday's 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers with 19 points (7-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal.
Impact: Gay remains in the midst of the worst statistical season of his career, but he's at least noticed a temporary boost in value thanks to the absence of LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder). While Gay hasn't been summoned to take Aldridge's spot in the starting five, the veteran has absorbed a good portion of the vacated offensive usage and minutes. During Aldridge's six-game absence, Gay has averaged 13.3 points (on 45.7 percent shooting from the floor), 6.2 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.3 three-pointers in 27.0 minutes.
News: Murray put up 17 points (8-18 FG, 1-1 3Pt) to go with seven rebounds, six assists, six steals and a block over 31 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Impact: Coming off a dreadful 3-for-16 shooting performance in Friday's blowout loss to the Nets, Murray bounced back in impressive fashion to finish out the weekend, delivering one of his better all-around lines of the season. Murray's scoring isn't the most reliable from game to game, but fantasy managers roster him primarily for his rebounds, assists and steals, and he's been providing those in droves lately. Since the All-Star break, Murray is averaging 5.6 boards, 4.9 dimes and 2.3 steals per contest.
News: White will return to the bench Sunday against the Cavs, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
Impact: White got the start Friday night in Brooklyn, but he'll move back to the bench as the Spurs go with Drew Eubanks, Trey Lyles, DeMar DeRozan, Bryn Forbes and Dejounte Murray.
News: Eubanks will return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Cavs, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
Impact: The Spurs experimented with a three-guard lineup Friday in Brooklyn, but they'll go back to Eubanks at center Sunday, with Trey Lyles sliding back down to forward. Eubanks saw 15 minutes off the bench Friday, finishing with six points and four boards.
News: The Spurs ruled Walker (lower leg) out ahead of Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Impact: After Walker's bruised left shin prevented him from taking part in morning shootaround, the Spurs wasted no time determining his status for their game later in the evening. He'll be one of four rotation players sidelined for Sunday's contest, leaving the Spurs a little more shorthanded than usual.
News: Walker (lower leg) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, but he appears unlikely to play after missing the Spurs' morning shootaround, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: An update on Walker's outlook for Sunday should arrive well in advance of the 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff, when the Spurs will provide the first two of their three official injury reports. If Walker ends up sitting out, a few extra minutes apiece could be available for the likes of Patty Mills, Derrick White, Bryn Forbes and Keldon Johnson.
News: Murray posted six points (3-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists across 25 minutes during Friday's loss to the Nets.
Impact: Murray couldn't throw a grape into the ocean during Friday's loss, becoming one of just 23 players this season to post a performance with 16 or more field-goal attempts on worse than 20 percent shooting. His shooting has been off lately, with Murray hitting just 38.2 percent of his attempts from the field and 28.6 percent of his threes across the past six outings.
News: Gay posted 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes during Friday's 139-120 loss to the Nets.
Impact: With LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) out across the past five games, Gay has seen increased responsibilities. Over this span, he's averaging 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 25.2 minutes, scoring in double figures in the past four contests. As long as Aldridge continues to be sidelined, Gay makes for a reasonable fantasy option in deeper season-long leagues.
News: White posted 19 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three blocks, two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Friday's 139-120 loss to the Nets.
Impact: White put together an efficient two-way outing Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Spurs to secure a victory. The performance marked the fourth time in White's career that he's posted at least three blocks and one steal, with Friday's effort accounting for the most points in one of those games. Across the past 15 contests, White is averaging 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 24.1 minutes.
News: Lyles posted 19 points (6-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one block across 23 minutes during Friday's 139-120 loss to the Nets.
Impact: Friday's game was played at a breakneck pace of 106.1, which is one full possession more than the fastest team in the league (Bucks, 105.1). Lyles was able to fire off plenty of shots in the process, hitting a season-high five triples in just 23 minutes. He should continue to see starter's minutes while LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) remains sidelined. Over the past four games, Lyles is averaging 16.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 1.5 assists and 1.0 block across 33.3 minutes.
News: Belinelli (illness) will remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup with the Cavaliers, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.
Impact: Belinelli's absence will mark his third consecutive game missed due to illness. His next chance to suit up will come Tuesday against the Mavericks.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's game against Cleveland, Matthew R. Tynan of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Aldridge wasn't included in the Spurs' travel plans for this weekend, effectively ruling him out Sunday. The veteran center's streak of missed games will reach six with his next opportunity to return coming Tuesday against the Mavericks.
News: Walker (lower leg) is considered for Sunday's tilt with the Cavaliers, Matthew R. Tynan of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Walker has been designated as questionable following an early exit in Friday's loss to Brooklyn. A further update from the team ahead of tipoff Sunday should clarify his availability.
News: Johnson had 13 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3PT, 4-6 FT) and five rebounds in Friday's loss to Washington.
Impact: Up from the G League, Johnson appeared in just his seventh game of the season and logged a career-high 21 minutes. The Kentucky product, who saw a then-career-high 15 minutes against Charlotte earlier in the week, also added a steal off the bench.
News: Walker will not return to Friday's game against the Nets due to a left shin contusion, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Impact: Walker played 16 minutes before exiting with the injury. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, so he should be considered day-to-day heading into Sunday's matchup with the Cavaliers.
News: Eubanks will come off the bench Friday against the Nets, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.
Impact: Coach Gregg Popovich will opt to go small against Brooklyn, starting Trey Lyles at center and DeMar DeRozan at power forward. Across the past three games, Eubanks has averaged 5.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 14.7 minutes.
News: White will start Friday's game against the Nets, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.
Impact: Coach Gregg Popovich will opt to go small, starting White, Bryn Forbes, Dejounte Murray, DeMar DeRozan and Trey Lyles. Across White's past five starts, he's averaged 9.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 25.2 minutes.
News: Belinelli (illness) is out for Friday's game against the Nets, Evan Closky of KENS 5 Sports reports.
Impact: An illness will keep Belinelli out for a second straight contest. His next chance to return arrives Sunday against the Cavaliers.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) will not play Friday against the the Nets, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Impact: Aldridge is still recovering from a right shoulder strain and will miss a fourth straight game as a result. With Jakob Poeltl (knee) also sidelined, Drew Eubanks and Trey Lyles should continue to see most of the minutes at center.
News: White collected 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 win over the Hornets.
Impact: White finished with at least two steals and two blocks for the third time this season and contributed across every statistical category. Though he hasn't seen 30-plus minutes since Dec. 12, White continues to churn out fairly well-rounded numbers considering his modest minute totals.
News: Murray went off for 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 win over the Hornets.
Impact: Murray stuffed the stat sheet across every category but blocks, and he was dialed in from deep. He has showcased solid improvement from a shooting perspective while increasing his averages in most per-game stats as well. With the Spurs fighting for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, Murray will try to deliver another quality effort in Friday's bout versus the Nets.
News: DeRozan provided 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 win over the Hornets.
Impact: DeRozan posted his fifth double-double through 58 appearances this season, this after recording his career best (12 across 77 games) in that category in 2018-19. While his second year with the Spurs hasn't been as good in that department, DeRozan is still having a splendid season, as he's sporting a career-high field-goal percentage while continuing to produce well-rounded counting stats.
News: Walker posted 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists across 20 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Pacers.
Impact: Walker has stepped into a bigger, more consistent role lately. Over the past eight games, he's averaging 5.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 20.6 minutes. He's also made 44.4 percent of his 1.1 three-point attempts per game across this stretch and totaled 11 combined steals-plus-blocks. As the Spurs continue to slide out of playoff contention, Walker's role should remain steady or possibly increase down the stretch.
News: Belinelli will miss Tuesday's game against the Hornets due to illness, Evan Closky of KENS 5 in San Antonio reports.
Impact: The veteran saw six minutes of action in Monday's loss to the Pacers, but he'll be held out Tuesday after coming down with an illness. Consider him day-to-day as Friday's game in Brooklyn approaches.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Hornets, Evan Closky of KENS 5 in San Antonio reports.
Impact: As expected, Aldridge will miss a third straight game as the Spurs finish up the second half of a back-to-back. With Jakob Poeltl (knee) also out, the Spurs will likely lean on Drew Eubanks and Trey Lyles for most of the minutes at center.
News: Mills registered 24 points (7-13 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three steals and one assist in 23 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Pacers.
Impact: Mills remains a consistent scoring force off the bench for the Spurs, and this was the ninth time this season where he scored 20 or more points while operating as a substitute. The veteran point guard is more than capable of putting up big numbers on a nightly basis, but he has lacked consistency of late, as he has scored in double figures just twice in San Antonio's last five outings while shooting an ugly 33.3 percent from the field during that span.
News: Lyles scored 20 points (8-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt) and added six rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Pacers.
Impact: Lyles has taken full advantage of the fact both LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) and Jakob Poeltl (knee) are out, and he scored 20 points for the second straight game. He should be tasked with a similar role on offense Tuesday against the Hornets, as Aldridge is expected to remain out for that contest as well.
News: Murray posted 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 25 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Pacers.
Impact: Murray's scoring figures have been inconsistent all season long, but he seems to be trending in the right direction with six double-digit scoring outings during San Antonio's last eight games. Even if he can't score at a consistent pace, Murray does enough to remain fantasy relevant due to his ability to fill the stat sheet on a nightly basis.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) is expected to remain out for Tuesday's game in Charlotte, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The big man will miss a third straight game Monday night against Indiana, and coach Gregg Popovich all but ruled him out for Tuesday's game on the second half of a back-to-back. McDonald notes that Aldridge could be back in the lineup for Friday's game in Brooklyn "if all goes well."
News: Eubanks will enter the starting lineup Monday night against the Pacers, Raul Dominguez of the Associated Press reports.
Impact: With LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) sidelined again and Jakob Poeltl (knee) also out, the Spurs will mix things up and go with Eubanks at center, with Trey Lyles at power forward. Eubanks played 16 minutes off the bench Monday against Orlando and finished with 10 points and three boards.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Indiana, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Impact: A sore shoulder will officially cost Aldridge a third consecutive game, and he could be in danger of missing a fourth with the Spurs playing on the first half of a back-to-back set. With Jakob Poeltl (knee) also out, the Spurs will have to dig a bit deeper into the depth chart up front. Trey Lyles, in particular, should continue to be set for increased minutes as long as Aldridge remains out.
News: Eubanks scored a career-high 10 points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with three rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Spurs' 114-113 win over the Magic.
Impact: With top center LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) sidelined Saturday, Eubanks was summoned from the G League's Austin Spurs to provide extra depth in the frontcourt. Coach Gregg Popovich may not have initially intended to use Eubanks in the rotation, but the two-way player ended up seeing meaningful minutes after backup center Jakob Poeltl (knee) exited in the first half. Poeltl has since said that he expects to be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks with an MCL sprain, while Aldridge looks to be at risk of missing a third straight game Monday against the Pacers. If Aldridge is out, Trey Lyles would presumably shift over from power forward to center, with Eubanks likely serving as the top backup.
News: Poeltl revealed Sunday that he expects to be sidelined 2-to-4 weeks after being diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his right knee, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: The reserve center sustained the injury in Saturday's 114-113 win over the Magic, when he bumped knees with another player midway through the first quarter. While San Antonio isn't putting a timeline on Poeltl's return, the big man's own estimate would keep him sidelined until the second half of March. Two-way player Drew Eubanks or second-year player Chimezie Metu could end up absorbing most of the second-unit center minutes while Poeltl is out.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) was unable to participate in Monday's shootaround, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Impact: Aldridge's inability to go through shootaround doesn't bode well for his chances of playing Monday. The team will likely confirm his status closer to tipoff.
News: Aldridge (shoulder) is considered doubtful for Monday's game against Indiana, Evan Closky of KENS 5 in San Antonio reports.
Impact: Aldridge has already missed the last two games with a sore right shoulder, and it appears he's headed toward a third consecutive absence. Jakob Poeltl (knee) started in his place Saturday night against Orlando, but Poeltl was diagnosed with a sprained MCL on Sunday, so the Spurs will likely have to go with Trey Lyles at center.
News: Poeltl (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained right MCL, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Impact: Poeltl suffered the injury, which was initially called a bruise, during Saturday night's game against Orlando. The Spurs haven't released a timetable, but Poeltl has been ruled out of Monday's game against Indiana, and he could stand to miss extended time.
News: Murray had 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven assists, three steals, two assists and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 114-113 victory over Orlando.
Impact: Murray was able to contribute across the board, turning in his most productive effort in over a week. The minutes have been wildly inconsistent of late, leading to a couple of poor performances. His numbers are far from eye-popping; however, he has been a top-60 player over the past two weeks and should be rostered in most formats.
News: Gay amassed 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 114-113 victory over the Magic.
Impact: Gay turned back the clock Saturday, basically putting up season-high numbers across the board. With the Spurs very thin on frontcourt options, Gay made the most of his opportunity, flashing his once consistent fantasy-friendly game. At this stage, we have to assume this kind of production won't last; however, if the injuries linger, he could be worth keeping an eye on.
News: Lyles finished with 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four steals, two assists and one block in 40 minutes during Saturday's 114-113 victory over the Magic.
Impact: Lyles posted about a month's worth of production Saturday as basically the last man standing in the Spurs' center rotation. He has been a regular starter for the Spurs but is yet to make any real noise across competitive fantasy formats. If the Spurs frontcourt remains banged up, Lyles could at least be on the radar as many prepare for their fantasy playoffs.
