Dejounte Murray scored zero points on 0-of-7 shooting on Sunday in what seemed to be an off night for the Spurs overall as they got blown out by the Thunder.
Murray played 21 minutes and added three rebounds, seven assists and one steal to the box score. No one on the Spurs scored more than 14 points, so we can chalk this up as a fluke game. Expect Murray to bounce back next game as he remains a middle-round value.

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.

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.

Dejounte Murray played well on Monday with 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with six boards, nine assists, a steal and a triple.
Murray was great tonight and outplayed teammate Derrick White (18 minutes, 15 points on 2-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, four assists and a triple) which led to the minutes discrepancy. He's always going to have more upside than White and with DeMar DeRozan sitting, everything lined up tonight.

Dejounte Murray narrowly missed a triple-double on Saturday with 17 points, nine rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 28 minutes.
Murray broke out on Saturday with his best performance of the season. He scored four points with five assists in 25 minutes on Thursday and inconsistency has been the story for Murray all season. He outplayed Derrick White tonight (13 points with three assists in 25 minutes), but the time share between both players keeps them as late-round options in standard leagues with Murray having the edge over White.

Derrick White came off the bench and scored 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting with one rebound, three assists and a block in 23 minutes on Thursday.
White scored well and got to the line frequently but didn't add much else. Dejounte Murray (25 minutes, four points on 1-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and a steal) had a better overall game, but shot poorly from the floor. Both players will be low-end assets with Murray having higher upside due to being the starter.

Dejounte Murray scored two points on 1-of-7 shooting to go with five rebounds and two steals in Monday's tilt against the Clippers.
Murray saw the floor more than Derrick White (23 minutes, four points, eight rebounds, six assists and two blocks) tonight, even though he didn't outplay him by that much. We'll continue to see both of them cap out each other's value as Coach Pop won't be budging on playing them together anytime soon.

Dejounte Murray and Derrick White played a few minutes together on Saturday night, with Murray producing nine points, 10 rebounds, two assists, four steals and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.
White had 11 points, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in a matching 27 minutes. Gregg Popovich has been hesitant to run two-PG groups with this duo all year, but that particular lineup erased a big deficit and turned it into an even bigger lead. If that persists then both guys will have a serious chance to post middle-round value but right now Murray is the safer choice. Keep your fingers crossed.

Dejounte Murray shot 7-of-10 from the field to score 16 points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 30 minutes on Wednesday.
Murray bounced back after a two-point performance in 22 minutes on Monday. Murray is a top-125 player in January with averages of 9.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 25.1 minutes per game. Murray should continue to have a late-round floor with mid-round upside, but it is hard to tell which outcome is more likely with the inconsistent minutes.

Derrick White couldn't get anything going against the Bulls in a loss on Monday, as he went scoreless (0-of-3 FGs) with two boards, two dimes and one rejection in 22 minutes.
White had some impressive performances this past week, including back-to-back four-block efforts. But tonight was one of the down games that come with the back-up point guard territory. Dejounte Murray wasn't much better, though, with two points (1-of-4 FGs), three boards and four dimes in 22 minutes.

Derrick White was a whirlwind on defense notching three steals and four blocks on Friday, adding 13 points on 2-of-5 shooting from the field and 9-of-11 from the line with six rebounds and four assists.
Wow. White is officially back in the standard-league conversation, especially since he just recorded a season-high 25 points on Monday. He grossly outplayed starter Dejounte Murray, who quietly put up six points, five rebounds, two assists and four turnovers in 20 minutes. For now, Murray is the guard to own and hold, but we wouldn't mind a White pickup in the light of his recent string of good games.

Derrick White exploded for a season-high 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting plus three rebounds, seven assists and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes in a win over the Suns on Monday.
White has been a borderline-rosterable guy for most of the season. This performance is a reminder of what he's capable of, though. In case the Spurs find themselves missing an additional guard or wing (Rudy Gay missed this game with an illness), be ready to snatch up White wherever he's available. Meanwhile, Dejounte Murray grabbed four steals and hit two triples in the win.

Dejounte Murray (illness) is available for Sunday's game.
Murray was previously listed as questionable but he'll be good to get into lineups as usual. There are some inconsistencies in his production, particularly when Derrick White is playing well, but Murray is returning middle-round value and the pros far outweigh the cons.

Dejounte Murray is questionable for Sunday's game with an illness.

Dejounte Murray double-doubled in Friday's home loss, picking up 13 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and three steals in 33 minutes.
Murray took a back seat to Derrick White earlier in the week but took charge again tonight as the two continue to jockey for the lion's share in San Antonio's backcourt. Murray is the better play as a steady middle-round value, though the random disappearing acts when White is playing well are frustrating. White had eight points, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 18 minutes while Patty Mills harshed everyone's mellow by scoring 15 points in 24 minutes.
