Fantasy News

  • Marco Belinelli - G/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Marco Belinelli (left knee contusion) returned on Wednesday and scored 17 points with three 3-pointers in a 105-101 win over the Mavs.

    He is merely a scoring and 3-point specialist in deep leagues as he does not add much else to the box score. He is barely inside the top-200, but he is a viable option if you are lacking value in those categories.

  • Jakob Poeltl - C - San Antonio Spurs

    Jakob Poeltl saw 20 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday and put up six points on 3-of-3 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and four defensive stats.

    Poeltl's inconsistent play will keep him from being relevant in fantasy, but it is good to see performances like this once in a while. Leave him on the wire.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay returned from a sprained left wrist on Wednesday in a win over the Mavs and scored 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting.

    None of the Spurs' starters were stellar in this game as the six highest scorers on the team were between 12 and 17 points. LaMarcus Aldridge put up eight points with four rebounds and four defensive stats on 4-of-11 shooting. DeMar DeRozan had 14 points with nine assists in a team-high 40 minutes. Aldridge has been the best valued player of the three at top-30, but DeRozan sits at top-50 and Gay sits at top-60 so they are all playing at a high level.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    As per coach Gregg Popovich, Rudy Gay will be in the Spurs' starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Mavs.

    He's missed five games with a sprained left wrist but has been deemed good to go by his coach. Gay will have a shot at getting back on track on his renaissance campaign in 2018-19, delivering mid-round value. He's been one of the season's more pleasant bounce-back guys, crushing his late-round ADP.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (sprained left wrist) has been cleared to play on Wednesday.

    Gay went through shootaround and was already listed as probable so this is a nice, if unsurprising, next step. Fantasy owners should hope that Gay doesn't re-injure the wrist as he did the last time he took the court. Pau Gasol is likely to move back to the bench in this one.

  • Marco Belinelli - G/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Marco Belinelli (left knee contusion) will play on Wednesday.

    Belinelli went through morning shootaround so it was looking good for him to play, and now we have confirmation. He has scored 14, 19 and 24 points with 12 combined triples over his previous three appearances and is safe to use if you'd like to try your luck tonight.

  • Marco Belinelli - G/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Marco Belinelli (left knee contusion) was able to participate in Wednesday's shootaround.

    It bodes well for his status tonight. Belinelli is currently listed as questionable so you'll want to wait for final confirmation before deploying him tonight. Normally he's not a fantasy option but his recent run of strong play has made him a viable option in deeper formats.

  • Marco Belinelli - G/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Marco Belinelli (left knee contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Belinelli had been on a nice scoring run prior to getting hurt, so hopefully he can pick up where he left off even after returning. The sharpshooter sat out of Monday's loss and is a deep-league option for points and threes when healthy.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (sprained left wrist) is probable to play on Wednesday.

    It was reported last week that Gay was without a timetable for return, though it appears a cortisone shot over the weekend has done him plenty of good. Expect Gay to go right back into the starting lineup with Pau Gasol heading back to the bench. Prepare to get Gay back in all lineups.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge stayed hot in Monday's 93-108 loss to the Hornets with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting with 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block.

    Aldridge led the Spurs in scoring and efficiency and it's thanks to his decreased attempts from deep. Over his past 10 games, Aldridge has only attempted two shots from deep and the last time he made a 3-pointer was on December 21st against the Wolves. He's shooting .596 from the field in January and .510 on the season so owners are happy about his move away from 3-point land.

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan scored 14 points on 7-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, five assists and a steal against the Hornets on Monday.

    DeRozan had a rather forgettable night on the offensive end and that's the fourth game in a row where he's failed to hit the 20-point mark. There's a solid buy-low opportunity for him as the Spurs are going to need him to crank it up as they fight for a playoff spot.

  • Derrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White scored 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, seven assists and a block against the Hornets on Monday.

    Over the past month, White has been a top-70 player in 9-cat leagues thanks to his averages of 0.9 triples, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks. He shouldn't be on any waivers in standard leagues.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    After getting a cortisone shot over the weekend, Rudy Gay will hopefully play for the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Gay's return will impact Davis Bertans, who has been solid lately. He could be on a minutes limit, depending on how his wrist responds at shootaround, so stay tuned for updates. Gay has shown that he can deliver across multiple categories this season, so he could return top-70 value when healthy.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (sprained left wrist) will not play on Monday.

    Just in case you missed it, last Friday it was announced that Gay is without a timetable to return. Owners will just have to sit tight and hope that Gay doesn't burn a hole in your roster. Pau Gasol has recently overtaken Jakob Poeltl as San Antonio's fill-in starter, but Davis Bertans and his 3-point shooting might give him the highest upside of the potential beneficiaries since neither Gasol nor Poeltl plays much either way.
