Coach Gregg Popovich has decided to give Patty Mills the day off on Tuesday as his team faces off against the Rockets.
This will mark the third straight absence and his fourth since the seeding games began. Even when Mills played, he only saw 20-plus minutes one time and can be dropped in favor of someone who will likely finish out the remainder of the schedule. We are at the point where availability is even more important than talent with just four days left of the seeding games. Derrick White (knee), who is currently a game-time decision, could have some great value if he does suit up as the Spurs still have a chance at the playoffs. Dejounte Murray, Lonnie Walker and Keldon Johnson are also all candidates to see additional opportunity.
