  • Lonnie Walker IV
    SG, San Antonio 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.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Dejounte Murray had his best game of the preseason on Wednesday, finishing with 20 points (8-of-11 shooting), four assists, three rebounds, a steal, two 3-pointers and no turnovers in 21 minutes.

    Murray had yet to find his shot through the preseason thus far, but tonight's matchup against what was a lax Houston defense. Still, a night like this is exactly what he needs to regain some confidence after missing all of last year to injury. He's an interesting, albeit risky, choice in the later rounds of drafts.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge

    LaMarcus Aldridge dominated the Rockets in the Spurs' 128-116 win on Wednesday, putting up 22 points (11-of-13 shooting), six rebounds, a steal and a block in just 22 minutes of action.

    Aldridge made it look easy in this one, and definitely looks ready to go for the regular season. The 13-year veteran head into his 14th season looking as sharp as he has in his last few, and holds a ton of value currently going in the 4th round of fantasy drafts.

  • DeMar DeRozan
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan will not participate in Wednesday's game against the Rockets for rest purposes.

    Rudy Gay will be rested as well. DeRozan should be worth selecting in the first 50 picks or so. DeRozan's long range shooting suffered last season, but his averages of 6.0 rebounds and 6.2 assists were career-highs.

  • Kenny Williams
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    The Spurs have filled the two open spots on their preseason roster by signing Galen Robinson and Kenny Williams, according to Kris M. Gardner.

    Both Robinson and Williams are guards who went undrafted this spring. While neither player appears likely to open the regular season in San Antonio, their Exhibit 10 deals make them strong candidates to become affiliate players for the Austin Spurs in the G League.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Despite a looming deadline for 2016 first-round picks to sign contract extensions, the Spurs’ Dejounte Murray and Jakob Poeltl say they aren’t worried about their futures.

    The deadline is on October 21st, two days before the season opener and if Murray and Poeltl don’t sign extensions, they will enter the restricted free agent market in July 2020. Murray’s future value is largely based on potential, but the torn ACL that forced him to miss all of last season placed his future in doubt. The young point guard, who is represented by Rich Paul, is poised to recapture the form that earned him NBA All-Defense Second Team honors in 2017-18, when he became the only player in the league that season under 6’6” to record at least 400 rebounds, 90 steals and 30 blocks. Poeltl meanwhile is set to earn $3.75 million this season and his inability to stretch the floor in an age when big men routinely play on the perimeter put him in line at this point to receive a team-friendly deal.

    The Spurs have waived Dedric Lawson.

    Lawson, a UDFA out of Kansas, was signed to an Exhibit 10 contract. He averaged 12.3 minutes across three preseason games and will likely spend his year in the G-League.

  • Bryn Forbes
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    Bryn Forbes scored 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting (3-for-6 from deep) in Sunday's 114-123 loss to the Pelicans.

    Forbes appears to be battling for a starting job after doing admirable work last season. It's going to come down to two of Forbes, Dejounte Murray and Derrick White, with White coming off the bench today. Forbes' fantasy game isn't all that exciting but he should be able to sail into top-200 value without a fuss, if that floats your boat.

  • Jakob Poeltl
    C, San Antonio Spurs

    Jakob Poeltl finished Sunday's preseason loss with six points, seven rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 20 minutes of action.

    Poeltl is set to enter the year as a starter and while we haven't updated him in a while, consider this your reminder that he can be a quality source of blocks and field goal percentage available on the cheap. If he can avoid early missteps and keep his confidence up, Poeltl will breeze past his ADP despite possessing minimal upside.

  • Trey Lyles
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    Trey Lyles started for the resting LaMarcus Aldridge on Sunday but didn't do much to impress, logging five points (1-of-5 shooting), six rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes.

    Lyles is going to try and fill the shoes of the departed Davis Bertans as a big who can stretch the floor, but performances like this won't help his case to be in the rotation on opening night. DeMarre Carroll, who had 13 points, four rebounds and three triples, is the far better bet for fantasy production among San Antonio's bench forwards.

  • Trey Lyles
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    Trey Lyles will start in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) during Sunday's preseason game versus the Pelicans.

    Lyles is slated to back up Aldridge during the regular season and does not provide much season long fantasy value, although he does make an interesting DFS play today.

  • Rudy Gay
    SF, San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (rest) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Pelicans.

    There's no need for Gay (or most players, really) to be checking into these meaningless games and he'll get the day off. That could mean additional minutes for DeMarre Carroll and Trey Lyles if you're playing DFS. When the games matter again, Gay will make for a solid if unexciting late-round selection.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) will miss Sunday's preseason game.

    No word on who will replace him in the starting lineup yet. Aldridge is a solid selection in the fourth or fifth rounds of fantasy drafts as a steady, high-level contributor.

  • Trey Lyles
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    Trey Lyles saw some action in a scrimmage on Thursday after missing the first two preseason games with a respiratory issue.

    Lyles is getting some time on court in practices, but it'll be hard for him to crack meaningful minutes with the Spurs this year.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge scored eight points with four boards, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes of preseason action in a 107-89 loss to the Heat on Tuesday.

    Aldridge surprisingly led the team in minutes played, even though he is the elder statesman on the team. His efficiency and ability to do a little bit of everything make him a safe pick in the early-mid rounds of drafts.
