San Antonio Spurs

Fantasy News

  • Davis Bertans - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Davis Bertans (concussion protocol) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

    Bertans was expected to miss this game after missing Sunday's game. There's currently no timetable for him. His absence opens up minutes for Dante Cunningham, who will continue to start. Jakob Poeltl will get more minutes of the bench as he tries to turn around the disastrous start he's had to his San Antonio career.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (foot) is out for Monday's contest.

    Gasol was expected to miss all of San Antonio's roadtrip and we have not gotten word on his timetable. Dante Cunningham will continue to start, while Jakob Poeltl will get extra looks off the bench. With Rudy Gay (rest) questionable, the Spurs frontcourt could be in for some heavy lifting against Anthony Davis and co.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (rest) is questionable for Monday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Gay is a must-own player right now. He's been providing consistent mid-late round value when on the court, but knowing Gregg Popovich, he will get a few games off for rest. Check his status closer to game-time.

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points with six rebounds and nine assists on 8-of-19 shooting in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    DeRozan returned to having primary ball-handling duties and delivered with nine assists and a team win. He will provide early-round value all season long and is definitely the man to own in San Antonio this season.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay started and scored 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Gay has been a top-80 player when he plays this season, so he is a safe must-own player with a high floor and a low ceiling. He added five rebounds and three blocks to the box score in this one. Get him back in your lineups and expect consistent late-round value while he is on the court.

  • Derrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White got moved to the bench and scored two points on 1-of-5 shooting in 17 minutes on Sunday in a win over the Warriors.

    A performance like this one is heartbreaking for owners who were hoping for good things from White. He can still have late-round value if he plays well in his bench role, but as of right now it is understandable to move on and find a better fantasy option if one is available.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge scored 24 points with 18 rebounds and shot an efficient 10-of-16 from the field in a 104-92 win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Aldridge has been outside the top-100 value this season due to his horrid field goal shooting percentage, but that is likely to change once he gets rolling. He is a perfect buy-low candidate as he should return middle-round value once he returns to playing his best basketball.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay will replace Derrick White in the starting lineup on Sunday.

    Gay left Thursday's game but never hit the injury report, so he's fine. White has offered up some uneven play and will work with the reserves in this one. Gay isn't a high-upside fantasy option but he's safe for late-round value as long as he's healthy.

  • Derrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White will come off the bench on Sunday.

    White has been up and down since returning to the court and the Spurs will turn back to Bryn Forbes and DeMar DeRozan as their primary ball-handlers. White should still be able to carve out late-round value, assuming he regains the starting job at some point, but he's not someone that's must-own in 12-team leagues right now.

  • Ben Moore - F - San Antonio Spurs

    The Spurs will sign Ben Moore to a two-way contract.

    Moore played two games with the Pacers last season and was waived in early November of this year. He'll help give the Spurs some emergency depth.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (foot) will not play on Sunday, as expected.

    Gasol was slated to miss all of San Antonio's road trip and there's been no word on his recovery timetable. Dante Cunningham will continue to start up front with Jakob Poeltl getting more run off the bench. Rudy Gay and LaMarcus Aldridge are the only guys up front that you should feel comfortable about.

  • Davis Bertans - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Davis Bertans has been placed in the concussion protocol.

    Bertans will not play on Sunday and there's no timetable for his return. This could open up more minutes for Dante Cunningham at the forward spots but there's minimal fantasy impact here.

  • Patty Mills - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Patty Mills came off the bench on Thursday and scored 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting with two triples, four rebounds and five assists.

    Mills outplayed Derrick White (zero points, two rebounds and one assist) in a huge way. We still like White's long-term value as he's a stat sheet stuffer, but tonight it was Mills who took over. It should also be noted that White is dealing with plantar fascia.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge scored 10 points on 3-of-15 shooting with 16 rebounds, an assist, two steals and two blocks on Thursday against the Clippers.

    Aldridge was absolutely struggling from the field today and he missed shots that he usually doesn't so we're not concerned. He got deep positioning several times on mismatches, but just failed to convert on his attempts. He was still able to go hard on the glass for owners tonight.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay returned from a heel injury on Thursday, scoring 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting with a 3-pointer, six rebounds and two assists.

    Gay came off the bench and still logged 25 minutes which is a good sign as that's all he needs to get to standard-league value. The Spurs are treating him with care which is expected, but when he's on the floor he produces. Keep holding onto him if you can handle rest days on back-to-backs.
