All signs point to forward Rudy Gay playing in the season opener on Wednesday night against the Wolves.
Gay sat out the preseason finale against the Magic last Friday due to a sore right heel, but he was a full participant in Monday’s practice. He is expected to start at small forward and we do like him as a late-round pick, as he averaged 11.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game on 47.1 percent from the field and 31.4 percent from beyond the arc during last season. He also missed 25 games with bursitis in his right heel so it’s certain that the Spurs will monitor his situation during the season.
