With Kawhi Leonard back in the starting rotation, Rudy Gay assumed a bench role and dropped 13 points on 3-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, and two triples in 26 minutes on Monday.
Gay has been a pleasant surprise this year, turning in reliable late-round value coming off an Achilles injury that ended his year last season. He will likely stick in a bench role with Kawhi back in the rotation, but he is still worth holding as he he should be able to maintain late-round production even in a bench role. Speaking of the Spurs’ bench, Patty Mills (11 points, three triples, one steal) Manu Ginobili (13 points, five assists, three rebounds), and Davis Bertans (eight points, three rebounds, one steal, one block) all saw extended run tonight in the blowout win. They are all still deep league players at this point, but do have some streaming appeal (in the order listed) depending on league size.
