Derrick White underwent surgery on the second toe of his left foot, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
This is the first news of any foot problem for White, who dealt with a left knee contusion in the bubble. It seems as though he'll be fully ready for the start of next season, but we'll keep you posted. White was just a late-round fantasy player this past season due to limited playing time, and he'll only be able to reach his ceiling if Gregg Popovich relents and allows White and Dejounte Murray to share the floor more frequently. The two overlapped for just 2.7 mpg prior to the league's shutdown, capping each under 30 mpg despite their obvious talents.

Derrick White played 26 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Rockets, totaling seven points, six assists and two rebounds.
White played through a knee concern as the Spurs ran out comfortable winners over the Rockets. He was forced from Sunday's game against the Pelicans and had been deemed questionable heading into Tuesday. The Spurs still have a chance to scrape into the playoffs and so White should be out on the floor for their final seeding game against the Jazz on Thursday.

Derrick White will face off against the Rockets on Tuesday despite dealing with a bruised left knee.
White should have plenty of opportunity against the fast-paced Rockets team that will be without James Harden (rest), Eric Gordon (ankle) and Danuel House (toe). White should be started in restart leagues and can be looked at in DFS contests now that we have word that he is available. Every game is important to the Spurs as they still have a shot at the play-in for the eighth seed. Patty Mills (rest) was a late scratch from the contest which provides even more minutes in the backcourt.

Derrick White will be a game-time decision with a left knee contusion against the Rockets on Tuesday.
White left Sunday's game and did not return after injuring his knee. Gregg Popovich told the media that White's status will be decided by "what he looks like when he warms up." Continue to monitor this news if you plan to play any Spurs guard. The game tips off at 11:00 AM PST

Derrick White (left knee contusion) is questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Rockets.
White suffered the knee injury during Sunday's game and was subsequently ruled out of the remainder of the game. The Spurs need to win all their remaining games but will also want to be careful with one of their key young pieces. Should White miss the game, players like Keldon Johnson, Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli could all have some short-term value.

Derrick White (left knee contusion) was forced from Sunday's game and the Spurs quickly ruled him out for the remainder.
White has been outstanding in the bubble and this news really hurts San Antonio's shot at getting into a play-in series. Before leaving today he was cruising again with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists, a block and two 3-pointers in just 21 minutes. Look for Keldon Johnson, Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli to get some extra run off the bench.

Derrick White is a new man, going off yet again with 24 points (8-of-15 FG, 4-of-5 FT), four 3-pointers, six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one turnover during Friday's 119-111 win over the Jazz.
Another crucial victory for the Spurs as they remain in the playoff hunt, and another outstanding performance as a starter for Derrick White. He nailed 4-of-9 triples, and continues to be a potent weapon from deep. He led the team with 33 minutes and is shaping himself into a mid-round player in standard leagues next season.

Derrick White played a team-high 33 minutes on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with seven assists, two steals, one block and four threes.
White has been given the green light from deep during the NBA restart, averaging 8.0 attempts per game on 45.8 percent shooting. The three-point shooting was the big knock on White this season and was the reason he and Dejounte Murray played limited minutes together. White seems improved in that area so far, and it is opening up the rest of his game. He is a good rebounder for a point guard and can rack up defensive stats in bunches. White could post top-50 value if he plays 30 minutes per game and would have a high floor with his well-rounded fantasy game.

Derrick White dropped 20 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with two rebounds, three assists, a steal and four treys on Monday.
White is finally getting run alongside Dejounte Murray and it's something us hoop heads have been pleading for the entire year. The result is a dynamic guard tandem that pairs amazingly on the defensive end and has led to White being a fantasy force since joining the bubble. The defensive numbers are going to roll in eventually and we're going to see some big lines.

Derrick White had a nice outing versus the Grizzlies on Sunday, scoring 16 points (3-of-8 triples), handing out seven assists and grabbing six rebounds.
White failed to have a steal or block, and did not have his greatest shooting night, going 4-of-12 from the field and 5-of-8 from the line, but the counting stats help make up for those failures. The biggest news is that White received 33 minutes yet again and launched eight 3-pointers. If he can keep firing successfully from deep he will be able to coexist with Dejounte Murray just fine.

Bryn Forbes (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Grizzlies.
Forbes missed the opener against the Kings and is apparently set to miss the Spurs' next game. He had been a regular starter for the Spurs during the initial portion of the regular season, although the playing time typically doesn't result in mouthwatering fantasy production. With Forbes on the sidelines, Derrick White, Dejounte Murray and Lonnie Walker will soak up the bulk of the minutes.

Derrick White did it all for the Spurs on Friday, posting a well-rounded line consisting of 26 points (8-of-15 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), eight rebounds, five dimes, four 3s, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.
White shined tonight and the Spurs will need to bring more lines like this if they're to qualify for the play-in tournament and qualify for the playoffs. The Spurs needed someone to fill the scoring void created by the absence of LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder surgery) and White delivered in spades. This is close to his ceiling, so keep your expectations in check.

Derrick White started at shooting guard and led the Spurs with a team-high 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting from the field (four 3s) and 4-of-5 shooting from the line with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks on Saturday.
DeMar DeRozan took a back seat to White tonight, producing just eight points, three rebounds and three assists. However, once the games start to matter, expect DeRozan to crank things up several notches and be the scoring threat he usually is, leaving White with a lot less usage than he got tonight.

Largely a reserve guard this season, Derrick White was a fantasy headache as a top-140/130 per game player (8-cat/9-cat) who received 24.1 mpg.
This has to be a worst-case scenario for White, who started just 13 games as a result of Gregg Popovich's refusal to start White alongside Dejounte Murray for the majority of the season. On March 6 he finally entered the starting unit alongside Murray, and by March 9 Murray was knocked out of the lineup with a calf strain. This year was a mess, but it is hard to resist targeting White in the standard league drafts again next season. He averaged 10.4 PTS, 3.4 ASTS, 3.2 REBS, 0.9 3PTS, 0.6 STLS and 0.9 BLKS per contest. His percentages were solid at .459 from the field and .857 from the line, plus 1.2 turnovers is a boost in 9-CAT formats. The Spurs have every reason to get their young guards together on the court at the same time, and any increase in playing time will move White up the rankings.

Derrick White was outstanding in Tuesday's home win, registering 14 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, two steals, four blocks and a 3-pointer in 35 minutes of action.
White has been a top-130 type on the full season with stretches of viability and complete frustration, but you need to go check and make sure he's not still free in any of your leagues. With Dejounte Murray out for an undisclosed period of time, White will have the starting PG spot all to himself and is obviously capable of multi-cat lines with elite defensive production. This looks like a player that can put fantasy teams over the championship hump.
