Notes 
 We're kind of just putting him here right now as we wait to see how serious the knee injury is. 8-12 weeks is a long time.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
A boring, high-volume center as long as he's in San Antonio. The bad part is that he's a likely trade candidate this season, which could tank his value depending on the landing spot.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Robert Williams aka "Time Lord" is a great fantasy asset...when he's healthy. Last season was the healthiest of his career, reaching 61 games and averaging 10 PPG, 9.8 RPG, and 2.2 BPG. Williams also approached 30 MPG (29.6) and was a game-changer on the offensive boards, averaging 3.9 per contest. A healthy Williams should be listed ahead of Ayton and Vucevic, but can he be trusted over a full season? Prior to last year, Williams played just 113 games in his first three professional year.
Mike Randle - FTN
Jakob Poeltl enters 2021-2022 in an interesting situation. The 26-year-old, 7-foot-1 center should see a big scoring boost on a Spurs team that appears to be rebuilding without Dejounte Murray. Poeltl's 13.5 PPG and 9.3 RPG should be his floor, unless San Antonio prefers to tank in the second half of the season. Still, there is a lot of upside to a young center that has raised his points, minutes, and rebounds per game in four straight seasons.
