  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge (sore right shoulder) returned from a six-game absence and led the Spurs to a 119-109 win over the Mavs on Tuesday, scoring a team-high 24 points in a team-high 37 minutes while also adding two rebounds, two assists, three steals, four blocks and a 3-pointer.

    This didn't look like a guy who was listed as doubtful as of this afternoon. Aldridge showed very little rust and went back to his high-usage role immediately, and he's good to get back into all lineups. With the Spurs having eight games over the next two fantasy matchup weeks, a performance like this surely put a lot of minds at ease about the near future.

  • Derrick White
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    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.

  • Rudy Gay
    SF, San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay put up 17 points, four rebounds and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

    Gay remains a late-round guy over the last handful of games but between his low upside and season-long standing around the top-200, there's no reason to rush out and pick him up in standard formats.

  • Trey Lyles
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    Trey Lyles managed to stay productive despite the return of LaMarcus Aldridge on Tuesday, netting himself 14 points, 11 rebounds, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Hopefully you didn't drop Lyles right away when it was announced that LMA was coming back. He stuck in the starting five and has been playing well enough to hang on standard-league rosters for another few games, especially with Jakob Poeltl out indefinitely. Lyles is playing at an early-middle round level over the last two weeks and you can roll with him until he's totally out of gas.

  • Marco Belinelli
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    Marco Belinelli returned from a three-game absence (illness) on Tuesday and connected on 6-of-8 from the field and four 3-pointers on his way to 16 points.

    Belinelli has fallen out of the rotation at times this season but could have specialist value in deep leagues given the injury to Dejounte Murray. He's rarely exciting but would be worth a look in 16-teamers if he can get on a hot streak.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge (sore right shoulder) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    The good news for owners who took a chance on Trey Lyles is that he will remain in the starting lineup. Aldridge, who missed six games, should pick up right where he left off as the Spurs try to keep their playoff hopes alive. Get him back into all lineups.

  • Derrick White
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    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.

  • Lonnie Walker IV
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    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.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge (sore right shoulder) is now being listed as probable for Tuesday’s contest against the Mavs.

    Aldridge has missed the past six games but is looking likely to return in time for owners' playoff matchups. With Jakob Poetl out, Aldridge is looking at a big workload. Trey Lyles has been playing impressive as of late but is going to take a massive hit with Aldridge returning.

  • Marco Belinelli

    Marco Belinelli (illness) is no longer on the injury report.

    Belinelli is on track to return after a three-game absence. He doesn't see enough opportunity to be relevant outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Lonnie Walker IV
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    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.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge is doubtful to face the Mavs on Tuesday as he continues to nurse a right shoulder strain.

    LMA will likely miss his seventh straight game on Tuesday. The team is also without Jakob Poetl so expect Trey Lyles to continue to see all the minutes that he can handle. Lyles is a must-stream player across formats who is capable of returning value for the remainder of the season depending on Aldridge's availability going forward.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    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.

  • Rudy Gay
    SF, San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay put up 19 points with nine boards on 7-of-19 shooting in a loss to the Cavs on Sunday.

    Gay has not been a consistent fantasy option this season, but he has been rolling over the past two weeks with top-110 value. DeMar DeRozan put up 25 points with eight boards on 7-of-19 shooting. DeRozan has consistently been hovering around top-50 value this season and should end somewhere around that range.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Dejounte Murray scored 17 points with seven rebounds, six assists and six steals in a 132-129 loss to the Cavs in overtime on Sunday.

    Murray fouled out in 31 minutes of action and added one triple and one block to the stat sheet. Derrick White returned to the bench and put up 17 points on 4-of-7 shooting in 25 minutes as well. Murray could hold early-round value for the remainder of the season, while White's peak is more of a middle-round option.
