San Antonio Spurs Roster
- Western Southwest
- AT&T Center
San Antonio Spurs forward/center Zach Collins (finger) is recovering from surgery after having a procedure done on April 8. A laceration on his left hand became infected after Collins suffered a cut on his finger in a game against Portland on April 6. The big man ended up missing the final two regular-season games because of the issue. Collins has finished his fifth season in the league. He averaged career numbers across the board, scoring 11.6 points per game and registering 6.4 rebounds with 2.9 assists. The 25-year-old was a reserve for most of the campaign and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has already said that the Gonzaga product will be his starting center in 2023-24, so fantasy managers have a lot of reasons to be excited about Collins next season.
San Antonio Spurs point guard Tre Jones had another busy outing Saturday against Minnesota, completing a 151-131 loss with his second triple-double in four games. He notched 21 points and posted 10 rebounds and 12 assists. Jones became only the fifth Spurs player ever with multiple triple-doubles in a season. The 23-year-old saw a run of 12 straight games with at least one steal end, but Jones was hot offensively, shooting 9-for-14 from the field. The young guard has had a very impressive ending to the season, averaging 19.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 10.5 assists for the month.
San Antonio Spurs guard Devonte' Graham (adductor) isn't available on Saturday versus Minnesota. The 28-year-old has played well since joining the Spurs ahead of the trade deadline. However, San Antonio has nothing left to play for, so his season is likely finished. Nevertheless, Tre Jones should handle things at the one. Considering Devin Vassell (hamstring) and Jeremy Sochan (knee) are out, Jones has a higher-than-usual upside. It will increase even more if Keldon Johnson (foot), who is questionable, doesn't suit up either.
San Antonio Spurs forward Keita Bates-Diop poured in a season-high on Thursday as the team grabbed a two-point victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. This game was a huge tank fest, but the 27-year-old at least made the most of it by collecting 25 points, six rebounds, four assists, and one steal on 7-for-11 shooting. He also added 2-for-4 from deep and 9-for-10 from the line. The Spurs have a lot of players that could serve as streaming options, but fantasy managers would have to keep tabs on everyone since the roster is just a turnstile due to injuries and rest days.
San Antonio Spurs forwards Keldon Johnson (foot) and Zach Collins (finger) have both been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against the Phoenix Suns. The Spurs' tank is going full speed ahead as they've listed Collins with a "left fifth finger cut." If that doesn't scream tank job, then nothing does! Since they'll both be sidelined, Keita Bates-Diop, Julian Champagnie, and Sandro Mamukelashvili all could serve as streaming options in deeper leagues, but they wouldn't be recommended in many fantasy championship matchups.
