    Lonnie Walker IV (sprained right ankle) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Tuesday's game.

    Walker was ruled out yesterday and has missed the last two games but could end up playing after all. Either way, he's not an option in redraft formats this season.

    Lonnie Walker IV (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out ahead of Tuesday's game.

    Walker has missed the last two games. He's on the edges of the rotation in his rookie season and is only a consideration in dynasty or deep keeper leagues this season.

    Lonnie Walker IV (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    Walker played a season-high 26 minutes with a sub-par stat line (four points, three rebounds, two steals) in Wednesday's game before sitting out Thursday's with the ankle injury. Whether he sticks in the rotation upon returning is unclear but he is likely best left on the wire for the rest of the season.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (left ankle sprain) is being called probable to play on Saturday against the Jazz.

    Good news for the Spurs and Gay owners. Lonnie Walker IV (right ankle sprain) is doubtful to play.

    Lonnie Walker (sprained right ankle) won't play in Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Walker isn't on the fantasy radar, but hopefully this is a minor injury. He's a fascinating prospect in a the best spot possible for him – he fell in the draft partially due to character concerns – but is just a dynasty stash right now. If the Spurs do typical Spurs things, Walker could be a real contributor next season as the team's highest draft pick since they "drafted" Kawhi Leonard.

    Lonnie Walker IV and Chimezie Metu have been called up ahead of Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

    Neither Walker nor Metu has been a regular in the Spurs rotation this season so not much is expected from them on Saturday even with Davis Bertans and DeMar DeRozan sitting. Walker is putting up 15.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.1 triples on the G-League. Metu is putting up 14.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.5 blocks.

    The Spurs have assigned Lonnie Walker IV back to the G-League on Saturday to get some more game-action.

    Walker made his Spurs debut on Thursday and played only five minutes of garbage time. He will likely be called up and down many times this year so the Spurs 2018 first round pick can be left on the wire.

    Lonnie Walker IV made his NBA debut on Thursday, playing five minutes and collecting a 3-pointer and a rebound.

    Walker tore his meniscus in the preseason and it's good to see him take the NBA court for the first time in a meaningful game. He's only a dynasty option this year.

    Lonnie Walker IV has been assigned to the G-League.

    The Spurs have kept the same routine of rookies being groomed in the G-League for a few years now. He was available to play with the Spurs on Wednesday so it is good to see him fully healthy. He'll be available to play in Friday's game with the Austin Spurs and has already logged some time in the G-League this season. We may see him later in the year, but he's just a dynasty hold right now.

    Lonnie Walker IV will be available to make his NBA debut on Wednesday, but says that whether or not he plays will be up to the coaching staff.

    Walker says his knee is feeling great after tearing his right meniscus in the preseason. It's the same injury that felled Walker in college, so the Spurs will probably take it slow with their rookie. He's not on the re-draft radar right but it's good to see Walker ready for action just the same.

    Lonnie Walker (knee) will likely spend most of his year in the G-League, according to Spurs beat writer Jabari Young.

    It's more speculation than a firm report but it makes sense considering how the Spurs tend to treat their younger players. Walker is also working his way back from injury, and while he could give the Spurs a boost eventually the team might not want him to have to learn on the fly at less than 100 percent as they fight through a crowded playoff picture. Walker has minimal re-draft value but can probably be considered a buy-low option in dynasty formats.

    Lonnie Walker made his G-League debut on Friday and scored 14 points with two assists, two rebounds and one block in 19 minutes.

    Walker has been out since the beginning of October after tearing his meniscus for the second time. He said he will be back with the Spurs "very soon" and he should be part of the rotation as they are thin in the backcourt. His college and Summer League stats suggest he is not someone to get overly excited about in fantasy, given it's his first season. The 18th overall pick of 2018 can be left on the waiver wire as of now.

    Lonnie Walker said his knee felt great after Tuesday's practice and that he'll be back with the Spurs "very soon."

    Walker's currently working with the G-League's Austin Spurs and will need to play some games with minutes restrictions before rejoining the big club. That might not be long, however, with Walker saying, "It feels like I am back to Lonnie Walker. Just continue to find my rhythm and everything. But day by day, it is nothing but improvement. Every day, I can see significant difference on my leg and just how I play overall." He's only an option in dynasty leagues this year as the Spurs have enough depth at shooting guard for him to be worked in very slowly.

    Lonnie Walker IV (right knee) will practice practice with the Austin Spurs through Wednesday as he continues to rehab from his torn meniscus.

    It's good to see that Walker is returning to practice in any capacity as a torn meniscus is a serious injury. The Spurs will gladly welcome him back as they continue to make their push for the playoffs.
