Rudy Gay scored a game-high 23 points on 7-of-12 shooting, adding five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes during Tuesday's victory over the Pacers.
Gay produced a vintage performance during the Spurs' final exhibition, dropping 23 points in just 22 minutes. The veteran forward seems destined for a permanent bench role as the Spurs look to develop their youth. His game is far from what it once was but without both LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) and Trey Lyles (appendicitis), Gay has a chance to carve out a meaningful role once again. He is someone to consider with a late-round selection despite the lack of upside.

Trey Lyles ended the season outside the top-200, but stepped up when his name was called and was a top-70 player over the last 15 games.
Lyles averaged 11.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game on 50.4-percent shooting during those 15 games. Overall, he averaged 6.4 points and 5.7 rebounds on 44.7-percent shooting in 63 games played. Unless his role increases going into next season when the Spurs are fully healthy, he will be nothing more than a deep-league target.

Coach Gregg Popovich told the media that Trey Lyles is out for the Orlando restart after suffering from appendicitis.
Lyles was expected to see more opportunity as the Spurs were already without LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder surgery) for the resumption of the 2019-20 season. However, it appears that they will have to lean more heavily on Rudy Gay, Jakob Pöltl and perhaps newly signed Tyler Zeller for the restart.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Trey Lyles put up 13 points with nine rebounds in 41 minutes of action in an overtime loss to the Cavs on Sunday.
Lyles shot 4-of-10 from the field and added two assists, one steal and one block to the box score. He has been the best fantasy player on the Spurs over the last two weeks with top-50 value, so keep him locked in all lineups as long as Jakob Poeltl remains out.

LaMarcus Aldridge (right shoulder soreness) will remain out against the Cavs on Sunday.
Aldridge will miss his sixth consecutive game as he continues being considered day-to-day without any specific updates. With Jakob Poeltl also sidelined, the Spurs will continue to rely on Trey Lyles who is managing top-25 value over the last four games with Drew Eubanks bumped up to about 15 minutes per game as a reserve. Lyles has been wildly inconsistent all season but seems like a must-play at the moment.

Trey Lyles started again on Friday and put up 19 points and added two assists and two rebounds in 23 minutes in a loss to the Nets.
Lyles has been very good with LaMarcus Aldridge on the sidelines, sitting inside the top-50 over the two-week stretch that Aldridge has been out. Lyles is a must-own guy as long as he's out but will shift back to very limited production when Aldridge returns.

LaMarcus Aldridge has been ruled out ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Nets as he continues to nurse a sore right shoulder.
Aldridge will miss his fifth straight game on Friday along with backup center Jakob Poeltl (knee). This means that Trey Lyles is a must-stream big heading into the weekend. LaMarcus' next chance to get out on the court will be Sunday against the Cavs.

Trey Lyles got hot on Monday and scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go with six rebounds, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers.
Lyles always pops up once in a while with a big game like this to tease fantasy owners, but it's fool's gold. LaMarcus Aldirdge (right shoulder) sat this one out and Lyles can't be relied on long-term.

LaMarcus Aldridge (right shoulder soreness) will not play on Monday.
The Spurs play again on Tuesday against the Hornets, so it's possible that he will be available for that one. Trey Lyles was excellent on Saturday and has the opportunity to turn in another solid game.

Trey Lyles scored 20 points (8-of-13 from the field) with nine rebounds, four steals, one block and two triples in 40 minutes on Saturday.
Lyles was relied on heavily with LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) out and Jakob Poeltl (knee) leaving the game after playing four minutes. Lyles will continue to see big minutes while Aldridge and Poeltl are out and is a worthy streamer in standard leagues for points, rebounds and threes. Don't drop a player with long-term value for Lyles though.

Trey Lyles was hot on Monday with 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with seven boards, one dime, one steal, one block and two triples.
Lyles had another decent night, but had a bit less scoring than usual. It's unlikely that he maintains this level of high efficiency production across the board.
