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.

Derrick White will start in place of the injured Dejounte Murray (calf) for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.
This should become the norm down the stretch as Murray is without a timetable to return. White has been just outside the top-100 for value on the year, but that is certainly due to jump higher for however long Murray remains out for. Make sure he is not available on your league's waiver wire.

The Spurs announced that Dejounte Murray suffered a calf strain in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cavs and there is no timetable for his return.
This is an unfortunate blow to fantasy GMs who were relying on Murray to help them in their fantasy playoffs. He should be considered day-to-day for now but it is a possibility that he will miss more than a week. Derrick White should benefit most from this injury and he should be scooped up off the waiver wire if he is still available.

Derrick White will be in the starting lineup for the Spurs-Nets matchup on Friday.
We never thought we'd see the day when Derrick White got to start alongside Dejounte Murray, but apparently Gregg Popovich has finally seen the light. Jokes aside, this should only be a boost to White's long-term outlook, as the more he is allowed to play alongside Murray, the more his minute's cap will rise with the Spurs. He was a top-100 player last season, and if he is going to start and see consistent minutes he could be that kind of player again. Murray's value should not change much with the lineup tweak, and you should monitor the situation to see how long the Spurs stick to this change.

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.

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.

Derrick White came off the bench on Wednesday and scored 10 points with two rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.
White appeared to be trending up after playing over 26 minutes in five straight games. Since then he went scoreless in 22 minutes on Monday and was limited to 23 minutes on Wednesday. White has top-75 upside but is held back by the inconsistent rotations in San Antonio. He's a hold in 14-team leagues to see if he can bounce back next game, but he is looking like a drop in 12-team leagues.

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 scored 14 points off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Raptors, hitting 4-of-11 shots (2-of-5 3PTs, 4-of-5 FTs) with four rebounds, four assists and four blocks in 28 minutes.
White had six turnovers too but owners don't care because he's finally flipped that switch — the same switch we saw him flip last season after bouncing on and off the waiver wire. With a nice little stat set, he's a must-own player in 150-player standard formats.

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.
