Rudy Gay scored 19 points ( 5-9 Fg, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 Ft) one rebound, one assist, one steal, and two blocks in 20 minutes of action in the Spurs 104-77 win over the Magic on Friday night in San Antonio.
Gay has come out of the All-Star break pretty nicely averaging 16.0 in the last two games. Whether or not he can remain this relevant remains to be scene but with LaMarcus Aldridge no longer on the roster it could be possible. The Spurs will next take on the Sixers in Philly on Sunday.
San Antonio Spurs PF Rudy Gay (health and safety protocols) has been removed from the team's injury report ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Dallas Mavericks.
Gay has accompanied Spurs SG Derrick White in the league's health and safety protocols for COVID-19 since mid-February, leaving the team reliant upon their reserve unit to play extended minutes in their absence. Fantasy managers can roster Gay, as he averaged 11.2 points across 21.9 minutes prior to his stint in the health and safety protocol. His low ceiling makes him a less appealing option in DFS contests but he is worth rostering in most category and point formats.
Spurs forward Rudy Gay (health and safety protocols) is out of Thursday's matchup against the Thunder.
With Gay out, we can expect more playing time for Luka Samanic and Keita Bates-Diop. Samanic totaled 14 points and seven rebounds in 20 minutes, most recently against the Knicks. Bates-Diop totaled eight points and four rebounds against the Knicks with these circumstances Tuesday.
San Antonio Spurs PF Rudy Gay (health protocols) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.
With Gay along with three other Spurs playing be listed out, the team will be severely shorthanded for the upcoming matchup on Tuesday. The expectation is that Trey Lyles would likely draw another start if Keldon Johnson is unable to return due to condition and that veteran center Jakob Poeltl will remain in the starting lineup.
