San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan finished with 20 points during the win over the returning Zion Williamson (knee) and the Pelicans. He also added five boards, one assist, and one steal. With his latest outing, the 30-year-old has now logged at least 20 points in 15 of his previous 16 games, while also averaging 26 points per game in January. DeRozan has been the subject of trade talks as of late and could see his production decrease if he gets a new home elsewhere. Nonetheless, wherever the veteran ends up finishing the year, he should remain a must-start moving forward, primarily as a result of his scoring output and efficient shooting percentages alone.
San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. He's missed each of the last three games with an illness. It's unlikely that Gay is facing any minutes restrictions on Thursday. Trey Lyles is expected to see less playing time with Gay back in the mix.
San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay (illness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. He's missed each of the last three games due to an illness. Fantasy owners will have a better idea after shootaround, but it sounds like Gay is going to be good to go for Wednesday. Trey Lyles will lose playing time and value with the return of Gay.
San Antonio Spurs shooting guard/small forward DeMar DeRozan just missed out on a triple-double on Sunday as he tallied 20 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in the close win over the Heat. DeRozan was excellent as he nailed seven of 16 from the floor while making all six of his attempts at the line and he also chipped in a steal while missing his only attempt from three. The Spurs are just a game and a half back of the eighth-place Grizzlies and with this, it seems the DeRozan trade rumors have cooled off. San Antonio plays again on Monday when they face the Suns, who the Spurs have just a half lead over in the Western Conference.
San Antonio Spurs power forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge led his team with 21 points on Sunday in the 107-102 win over the Heat. Aldridge did a bit of everything as he nailed eight of 15 from the floor en route to 21 points and added four rebounds with three assists while drilling two triples to go along with two blocks and a steal in 36 minutes of action. Aldridge continues to be one of the more steady players in fantasy and is having an excellent season with averages of 19.1 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 0.6 steals while connecting on a career-high 1.2 makes from three a night.
