Rudy Gay (illness) and DeMarre Carroll (illness) are being ruled out ahead of Monday's matchup with the Suns.
Trey Lyles and Jakob Poeltl are looking at extra minutes again in this one. Gay should be back in the lineup soon.

Trey Lyles went scoreless on Friday but managed to post 10 rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 20 minutes.
That's not bad all things considered, though he didn't really do much to take advantage of Rudy Gay's absence opening up more minutes at power forward. He's getting 17.3 mpg on the season and is a rebounding specialist if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel in 20-teamers.

Trey Lyles made another start on Saturday night and came away with five points, three rebounds, three assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes of action.
Lyles is trending back up with at least 20 minutes in each of his last three games. The Spurs might be grasping at straws here but as long as the minutes are there, Lyles is worth a look in 20-team leagues.

Trey Lyles scored 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting to go with eight boards, four assists and three 3-pointers.
Lyles still only logged 25 minutes and he's not worth owning in standard leagues with the Spurs at full strength.

Rudy Gay (undisclosed illness) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.
Gay has not missed any games so far this season while posting last round value in standard leagues in 23.0 minutes per game. If he does miss this one, expect Trey Lyles to have an expanded role with DeMarre Carroll possibly getting in the rotation.

Trey Lyles started for the Spurs on Saturday and quietly produced four points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 17 minutes.
The production was barely worth batting an eyelash and both the usage and minutes were red flags that signal to avoid him in most fantasy formats and league depths right now. Rudy Gay saw the bullk of the minutes at PF, producing a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double with three assists and two blocks in 32 minutes. Gay is worth owning in 14-team leagues or deeper right now.

LaMarcus Aldridge (sore thigh) will be available to play vs. the Kings on Friday.
He'll return after missing his last two matchups and both Jakob Poeltl and Trey Lyles will go back to seeing reduced roles. Feel free to fire Aldridge up in all lineups once again.

LaMarcus Aldridge is questionable ahead of Friday's matchup against the Kings as he nurses a sore thigh.
If Aldridge ends up sitting out Friday, it will mark his third consecutive absence. Jakob Pötl and Trey Lyles will likely see additional minutes if he does sit out.

Jakob Poeltl will replace Trey Lyles in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Wizards.
Poeltl has been disappointing for all those who drafted him in the late rounds of drafts as he has only averaged 15.3 minutes per game. The Spurs are currently on a six-game losing streak so there is a possibility that Poeltl sees his minutes increase if the Spurs perform better with him in the starting lineup. He is best left on the wire in standard leagues for the time being but could be an intriguing DFS play at his price tag.

Trey Lyles notched a fresh career-high with 14 rebounds on Friday, but missed all four shot attempts to finish with just the boards and three assists to his name in 28 minutes.
Lyles has been volatile so far and is too inconsistent to trust as a long-term grab. The activity on the glass was a huge plus and should earn him some brownie points with coach Gregg Popovich.

Trey Lyles started again for the Spurs on Monday but was invisible in 25 minutes, chipping in just eight boards and four assists.
Lyles is a low-end option in deep-leagues right now, so don't get lulled into complacency by his starting role.

Trey Lyles started Wednesday's season opener and produced eight points (3-of-4 shooting) and 11 rebounds in 24 minutes.
The Spurs appear to have found a new way to mess with Jakob Poeltl's confidence, so that's cool. We wouldn't expect this arrangement to stick for long but Lyles is at least worth your attention in 20-team formats. Poeltl's still the better play long-term and had six points, four rebounds and a block in 16 minutes.
October 23, 2019, 7:08 pmTrey LylesPF, San Antonio Spurs
According to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News, Trey Lyles will start Wednesday vs. the Knicks in place of Jakob Poeltl.
There has been a bit of confusion regarding the Spurs' starting lineup heading into their season opener. When Greg Popovich was asked by the media what his starting lineup would be, he responded by saying, "same starters." Popovich used two starting lineups in preseason so it is still possible that Poeltl starts over Lyles. Monitor this situation for DFS lineups as we hope to get more definitive information before tip-off.

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 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.
