The Spurs were dealing with injuries to LaMarcus Aldridge, Dejounte Murray, Jakob Poeltl and Lonnie Walker IV before the season was halted, but all four are expected to be "good to go" when the NBA resumes action.
Poeltl (MCL sprain) was dealing with the most significant injury of the bunch, and if he's ready then everyone else will be as well. Aldridge was day-to-day with a shoulder strain, while Murray and his strained calf were the biggest headache for fantasy GMs before the season stopped. Initially given no timetable for return, he's ready to go and will split the PG work with Derrick White as the Spurs try to extend their playoff streak.

Lonnie Walker IV (left shin contusion) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.
Walker is a name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues with Dejounte Murray (calf) currently without a timetable to return. Keep an eye on his status as the week progresses, as the Spurs will have the incentive to play Walker if they fall further down the playoff pecking order.

Lonnie Walker (left shin contusion) is questionable to play in Tuesday's contest vs. the Mavs.
Walker could see increased opportunity with the news that Dejounte Murray (calf) is out without a timetable for his return. However, he has yet to produce consistent enough value in standard leagues. Walker is a must-watch player who could be worth a speculative add in the hopes that the team plays him significantly more to end the season. Continue to monitor the news as we will learn more in regards to Walker's availability on Tuesday.

Lonnie Walker (left shin contusion) is questionable to face the Cavs on Sunday.
Walker was helped to the locker room in the second half of Friday's but the injury does not appear to be too serious. Although his role has grown into a steady rotational player on the Spurs this season, his fantasy upside is capped as he is only playing anywhere between 15-to-25 minutes on most nights so leave him on the wire.

Lonnie Walker IV (left leg) was helped to the locker room on Friday in the second half of the Spurs' game vs. the Nets.
Walker has actually improved his play over the past couple of weeks, sitting in the top-175 over the past two. He's got a lot of potential but probably belongs on the wire, injury or not.

Lonnie Walker IV made the most of his start on Wednesday night, finding himself with 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 3PT), three rebounds, two assists and three blocks at the end of the contest.
Walker had a respectable night while filling in for LaMarcus Aldridge. While he likely isn't someone of interest outside of the deepest leagues, he has interesting potential when he sees minutes. It's worth noting he has picked up four blocks over his last two games from the guard position.

Lonnie Walker IV will start for the injured LaMarcus Aldridge on Wednesday vs. the Mavs.
Walker has had some moments that show he has the ability to score. However, he hasn't shown the ability to produce consistently in other categories. He is an interesting dynasty stash but is unlikely to make an impact outside of deeper leagues this season.

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) will not play in Tuesday's contest against the Thunder.

Lonnie Walker started on Monday and scored four points on 2-of-6 shooting to go with five boards, four assists and two steals.
DeMar DeRozan was late scratch with back spasms, so Walker drew the start tonight. He didn't do much scoring, but got it done elsewhere tonight.

Having finally secured a spot in coach Gregg Popovich’s rotation, Lonnie Walker IV also has been enjoying some good times on the court lately.
Walker helped the Spurs rally from an 18-point third quarter deficit to vanquish the Raptors on Sunday. Even though he played only 11 minutes, Pop called on him to play most of the drama-filled final 28 seconds. The explosive guard is still deep in the depth chart but he deserves to be stashed in dynasty leagues.

Lonnie Walker IV took advantage of some garbage time on Wednesday and exploded for 19 poinnts on 7-of-11 shooting with two 3s, three rebounds one assist and one steal in 19 minutes.
Walker IV has been flirting on-and-off with some value but has a lot of players ahead of him in the rotation. He's more of a dynasty stash than a season-long guy right now.

Lonnie Walker IV had his first career start and responded by scoring just eight points (3-of-12)in 26 minutes of action, losing to the Bucks on Saturday.
Walker IV got the start with teammate Bryn Forbes correspondingly moving to the bench. He did everything he could to try to keep himself in the starting line-up but failed to find the mark from the field, converting just 3-of-12. Walker IV should be left on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues.

Lonnie Walker logged 21 minutes on Thursday night, producing 16 points (6-of-10 shooting), seven rebounds and two 3-pointers.
Walker also drew praise from Gregg Popovich after the game, which is definitely a good sign. It's been a lot of stops and starts for Walker, who floats in and out of the rotation, but he does seem to be slowly working his way into the team's good graces. He remains a deep-league target for now, and he's not someone that you have to run to pick up in 20-teamers or anything just yet.

Lonnie Walker, who was dealing with a bruised right knee, is no longer on the injury report ahead of Thursday's matchup vs. the Nets.
Walker has a lot of future potential and could be a name to watch as the season rolls along. However, he is not currently seeing enough minutes to produce value worthy of standard leagues. Walker is someone to add to watch-lists for his long-term potential.
