San Antonio Spurs

Western Southwest

SA Spurs F Thad Young finished with zero points (0-2 FG) and five rebounds over 14 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 win over Golden State.

Fantasy Impact: Young's role continues to be up and down for the Spurs. His frustrations boiled the other day as he confirmed his frustration with the role. On Saturday, he posted zero points on 14 minutes in a win. He will likely be traded at some point in the season as the Spurs continue a rebuild.

SA Spurs G Lonnie Walker recorded 21 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, one assist and two steals over 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 win over the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: The young guard went nuts posting 21 points on 7-13 shooting while managing to scoop up four rebounds, one assist, and two steals. This can be considered a one-off performance as it marked as season-high with no Devin Vassell in the lineup.

SA Spurs Derrick White closed with 25 points (8-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), one rebound, three assists, and three steals across 36 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 win over the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: White was absolutely electric on Saturday racking up 25 points on 50% shooting from the field. Over the past four games without Devin Vassell and Kieth Diop-Bates, he's played excellent averaging 19.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists across that span. He's trending upwards into a top-75 range.

SA Spurs G Bryn Forbes ended with 18 points (7-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and two steals over 15 minutes during Thursday's 114-83 victory over Portland.

Fantasy Impact: In a blowout win over the Blazers, Forbes was a hot spark off the bench tallying 18 points on 7-9 shooting while managing to nail three 3's. Forbes has played exceptionally well over his past four contests logging double-digit points in three-of-four. He remains off fantasy radars outside of DFS circles.

SA Spurs C Jakob Poeltl amassed 14 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, four blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 114-83 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy Impact: It was an impressive night for the veteran big man. Poeltl managed to score 14 points on 7-12 while notching in nine rebounds, just one shy of what would've been third of the season. Since returning from injury, he's been averaging 13.0 points, 10.2 boards and 2.0 blocks over his past five games. He remains a top-75 player with that type of production.

SA Spurs G Dejounte Murray finished Thursday's 114-83 victory over the Trail Blazers with 15 points (6-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, 13 assists and two steals over 34 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Murray managed to post yet another double-double on the season but failed to do so with efficiency from the floor. The young star shot 6-16 on his way to 15 points.The fifth-year point guard has grown as a scorer with a career-best 18.9 points on the campaign, and he is also on pace for the best marks of his career with 8.4 boards, 8.3 assists, 1.3 three-pointers and 2.0 steals per contest. Collectively, those numbers have helped Murray post top-15 value in nine-category fantasy leagues on the campaign.

SA Spurs F Keldon Johnson had 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 38 minutes during Friday's 96-88 win over the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was extremely impressive on Friday night posting a 17 point and 14 rebound double-double. Despite his 15 PPG average so far on the season, Johnson has struggled to put up other numbers outside of just points the past two weeks making him hard to roster in 12-team fornats.

Fantasy Impact: Expect Keita-Bates Diop to be in the starting lineup again for Wednesday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Spurs F Devin Vassell posted 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes during Monday's 115-111 loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: Vassell has continued to play excellent off the bench despite the up and down minutes on the season. Even with the fluctuating minutes, he's continued to produce fantasy relevant numbers this season ranking inside the top-120 in points leagues. He's worth an add on 12-team rosters.

DeMar DeRozan totaled 20 points (5-21 FG, 10-11 FT), three rebounds, and three assists in 38 minutes in the Spurs 100-96 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: DeRozan underwhelmed in the Spurs' loss to the Grizzlies, putting together a less than ideal performance at the most inopportune time. He couldn't buy a bucket for "free" as he shot 23.8 percent from the floor, making it one of if not the worst scoring performance of his 2020-2021 campaign. It wasn’t a great year for DeRozan as he regressed in almost every major statistical category. He averaged 33.7 minutes, 21.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game while shooting 49.5 percent from the floor and 25.7 percent from beyond the arc. He will look to get back into better form next year.

Fantasy Impact: With Gay on the sidelines, look for rookie Devin Vassell as well as potentially a guy like Keita Bates-Diop to see increased opportunities off the bench.

Gorgui Dieng will not make his debut with the Spurs ahead of the teams game Monday against the Kings. (Source: Tom Orsborn on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It will likely come in the team's second game against Sacramento on Wednesday, March 31. "You play hard, you play well, you are going to play," Dieng said. "If not, you are not going to play. That’s the way I see things."

Former San Antonio Spurs PF/C LaMarcus Aldridge is now a free agent after the team bought out his contract and released him, per Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Aldridge has not played since the team mutually agreed to seek a contract buyout for the 35-year old center earlier in March. He averaged 13.7 points and 4.5 rebounds across 25.8 minutes in 21 games for the Spurs this season and could become a good value in season formatted leagues, as he is available on 49 percent of ESPN waiver wires. Continue to monitor Aldridge and the potential landing spots he will seek as an older free-agent in search of a new home.

Spurs' PG Patty Mills scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 3PT), to go along with three assists in a Spurs victory over the Detroit Pistons on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Mills has been a solid contributor to a Spurs team that has been dealing with injuries and COVID-19 absences this season, averaging 12.2 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.5 rebounds over his last 10 games. However, despite his consistency, with Dejounte Murray seeing most of the minutes at PG for the Spurs, Mills should remain on waivers with perhaps the exception of deeper leagues.

Trey Lyles scored 15 points (7-9 Fg, 1-2 3Pt) 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 26 minutes in the Spurs 107-102 loss to the Thunder at home on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Lyles had a first half of the season to forget but did manage to finish strong as he averaged 16.5 ppg in the last two games. The Spurs are now off for the All-Star break and return to the court next Wednesday on the road against the Mavs.
