Rudy Gay disappeared into the fantasy ether on Friday, playing just 15 minutes and was limited to four points on 2-of-6 shooting with four rebounds and one assist.
Gay is a drop, even in 18-teamers, given how steeply he's dropped over the last month. He's scored in double figures only twice in February and there doesn't appear to be a light at the end of this dark and dreary tunnel.
February 21, 2020, 11:36 pmLaMarcus AldridgePF, San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in across the board once again on Friday, checking multiple boxes with 15 points (6-of-17 shooting), eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one trey and one block in 35 minutes.
The only real blemish on LMA's line was his 6-of-17 shooting from the field. Well, being defended by Rudy Gobert will do that to even the best of bigs. There's no cause for concern and Aldridge's top-25 pace should resume soon enough.
February 21, 2020, 11:32 pmDeMar DeRozanSG, San Antonio Spurs
DeMar DeRozan (back spasms) led the Spurs in minutes with 36 on Friday, showing no signs of his back issue as he posted 18 points (8-of-17 shooting), five rebounds, seven assists and one block.
DeRozan's minutes are a clear sign that he's out of the woods and is ready to continue on his career season. The efficiency and assists should be enough to carry him to a guaranteed top-50 finish at the least.
February 21, 2020, 11:27 pmDejounte MurrayPG, San Antonio Spurs
Dejounte Murray posted a fantastic two-way performance in a 113-104 win over the Jazz on Friday, recording 23 points (10-of-16 shooting), seven rebounds, one trey, four assists and four steals in 33 minutes.
Murray has been playing great basketball lately and hopefully, he can keep it consistent for the fantasy stretch run. The Spurs have a great schedule ahead and he's going to be a potential swing-player for many fantasy teams if he keeps this up.
February 19, 2020, 7:14 pmDeMar DeRozanSG, San Antonio Spurs
DeMar DeRozan (back spasms) said he'll be in the lineup on Friday night.
DeRozan missed San Antonio's two games before the All-Star break after getting hurt during pregame warmups on February 10. The injury never seemed serious and it'll be safe to get DeRozan back into all lineups going forward. Just keep your fingers crossed that the Spurs stay in the playoff hunt and avoid late-season rest days.

The Spurs have officially waived DeMarre Carroll on Tuesday.
Carroll was expected to sign with the Rockets, but with the news of him being waived rather than being bought-out, Carroll will now have to clear waivers first. Feel free to leave him on the waiver wire as the situation plays itself out and we know where Carroll will be playing next.

The Spurs have agreed to buy out DeMarre Carroll.
Carroll only played 15 games this season with the Spurs and there were rumors that he would be traded. It's possible that the Rockets will sign him, but he hasn't been worth owning in fantasy at any point this campaign.

Lamarcus Aldridge scored 25 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and added three assists in Tuesday's 114-106 win over the Thunder.
His production had taken a dip recently but this was a really solid game in what has otherwise been a resurgent fantasy season for Aldridge. He is a top-25 player thus far and is averaging 19.1 points and 7.6 rebounds.
February 11, 2020, 11:16 pmDejounte MurrayPG, San Antonio Spurs
Dejounte Murray had a season-high 25 points to go along with nine rebounds and three assists on Tuesday against the Thunder.
Murray has really ramped up his play in the Spurs' last three games. He had nine assists in the previous two games and had nine boards Tuesday. He has quietly held top-75 value this season and has been extremely good lately. The buy-low period for Murray has seemingly come to an end.
February 11, 2020, 11:05 pmPatty MillsPG, San Antonio Spurs
Patty Mills scored 20 points in a empty line in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.
He had three triples on the evening but had no other stats, aside from a turnover. Mills, Bryn Forbes, and Derrick White end up handcuffing each other on the Spurs and all three of them can be left on the wire in most cases.
February 11, 2020, 10:52 pmDerrick WhitePG, San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White had a nice game Tuesday night against the Thunder with 17 points, eight dimes and 4 rebounds.
White has been usable this year in fantasy, with his value hovering right around 160 consistently. He and Patty Mills handcuff each other's fantasy value and each of them got 28 minutes tonight. White is must-own in deeper leagues and should continue having similar minutes and usage as we head into the All-Star break.
February 11, 2020, 6:54 pmLonnie Walker IVSG, San Antonio Spurs
Lonnie Walker IV will start in place of DeMar DeRozan (back) in Tuesday's game against the Thunder.
Lonnie Walker got the start on Monday and compiled four points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals in Monday's contest, and has shown flashes when given the opportunity. He makes for a cheap option on DFS slates.

DeMar DeRozan (back spasms) is doubtful to play against the Thunder on Tuesday.
DeRozan was a late scratch on Monday and Gregg Popovich said he wasn't sure when DDR would be able to return from the injury. Lonnie Walker started in his place, and figures to do so again tonight. Hopefully DeRozan will be ready to rock coming out of the All-Star break on February 21.
