Lots of offseason turnover, but still another playoff appearance for the Spurs

Lonnie Walker IV started for DeMar DeRozan (rest) on Wednesday, finishing with five points on 2-of-8 shooting, four assists, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 23 minutes.
The scoring isn't great but the other stats are actually pretty solid considering how long he was out there. Walker IV has the talent but is buried under a plethora of guards in San Antonio's rotation, making him no more than a speculation add in dynasty leagues.

The 2019 Summer League Second Team is comprised of Rui Hachimura, Lonnie Walker, Anfernee Simons, Jaxson Hayes and Chris Boucher.
Of the bunch, Hachimura looks the most likely to be fantasy-relevant this season. He's going to have a great chance to log minutes for a Wizards team that's short on depth at the forward spots. In three games in Vegas, Hachiumra averaged 19.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks. Walker is looking to crack the rotation after an injury-plagued rookie season but might have a hard time outplaying San Antonio's capable guards. Simons could slot into the Portland backcourt with the departure of Seth Curry while Boucher is the reigning G-League MVP and Hayes looks like an interesting long-term prospect next to Zion Williamson in New Orleans.

Lonnie Walker IV had another great Summer League showing on Monday in a 93-90 win over the Raptors as he put up 32 points (12-of-23 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), six rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.
Walker's definitely turning some heads with his Summer League play. The Spurs' guard depth is a problem for his fantasy potential this season, but he's doing all he can to earn minutes right now. He's worth keeping an eye on through training camp just in case something changes in the Spurs' back court.

Lonnie Walker IV continued his torrid Summer League pace on Friday night with a 28-point outburst on 11-for-17 shooting with two rebounds and one steal.
Walker IV continues to flash his potential this summer as he hopes to make enough of an impression to be in the mix for reserve minutes in San Antonio this season. Center Drew Eubanks also contributed a nice night with 15 points and three blocks.

Lonnie Walker IV played well on Wednesday in a loss to the Jazz as he put up 19 points and eight rebounds on 7-of-17 shooting.
Walker IV is a second-year player that the Spurs have tremendous confidence in, so it is nice to see him start the Summer League with two stellar performances. Fellow second-year player Drew Eubanks put up 15 points and seven rebounds on 6-of-10 shooting. Walker IV will likely have not have a huge role this season, but could see some meaningful rotation minutes. Eubanks will still be stuck in a deep reserve role.

Lonnie Walker IV scored a game-high 20 points vs. the Cavs in Summer League on Monday, adding seven rebounds, two assists and a steal on 8-for-12 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line in 28 minutes.
That's the kind of game you like to see from a second-year player against other young players. It sounds like Walker has taken some good steps since he was drafted, but with Dejounte Murray returning this season and the rest of the roster largely the same as this past year, it would be a surprise to see Walker get meaningful minutes.

Lonnie Walker IV finished with only one rebound on 0-of-1 shooting in only three minutes in Wednesday's night win over the Mavs.
Walker didn't really do much tonight and it's been that way for the majority of the season. The 20-year old Walker only played 7.1 minutes this year and played in 16 games. He finished the season clean outside of the top-400 in 8/9-cat leagues and wasn't worth owning at all this season. He's more of a project for the Spurs and likely won't be on anyone's draft radar next season.

Lonnie Walker IV was the lone bright spot for the Spurs in a blowout loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday as he had 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting.
Walker was the Spurs' 2018 first round draft pick, so it is nice to see him have a game like this when he gets the opportunity. He needed just 16 minutes to score his 16 points and added three triples and two rebounds to the box score. He can be left on the wire as the added opportunity was solely due to garbage time.

The Spurs have recalled Lonnie Walker IV from the G-League ahead of Friday's game versus the Rockets.
The rookie has only appeared in eight games this season for the Spurs, but with the G-League season ending soon he may see a few extra appearances down the stretch playing limited minutes. There is no reason to have Walker IV on your fantasy radar this season.

The Spurs have recalled Lonnie Walker ahead of Saturday's game against the Thunder.
Walker has only appeared in six games for the Spurs all season and with Bryn Forbes expecting to play, Walker is unlikely to get into the rotation in this one. The rookie is averaging 16.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 triples with a 43.1 percent field goal percentage in the G-League.

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.
