Kawhi Leonard (quad) is rumored to want out of San Antonio.
Jalen Rose said that his sources have been telling him that Leonard has been upset with the Spurs inability to bring in "elite-level talent" during free agency (LaMarcus Aldridge?) and that there's a belief out there that players don't want to play for Gregg Popovich, because Popovich requires you to work hard or something. There does appear to be tension brewing between Leonard and the Spurs, but we're skeptical of Rose's assertion that he wants to be traded. Remember, Aldridge was at an impasse with Spurs' management this summer, but they managed to work things out. Jan 23 - 5:46 PM

Kyle Anderson scored only five points on 2-of-7 shooting on Wednesday, but he chipped in three rebounds, one assist, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

Rudy Gay (heel) is out a few more weeks, Kawhi Leonard (quad) is out indefinitely, and now there are rumors that Kawhi wants the Spurs to trade him. Anderson is a steady mid-round roto value while Kawhi is off the court, so owners should just hold him and see how this plays out.
Jan 25 - 12:12 AM

Danny Green (groin), Kawhi Leonard (shoulder) and Manu Ginobili (rest) will sit out Monday's game against the Kings.

This will be Green's fourth straight game on the sidelines and with all these guys unavailable, Bryn Forbes and Kyle Anderson could be forced into heavy minutes tonight, making them reasonable DFS targets with a favorable matchup in Sacramento. We haven't received another update on Green since Gregg Popovich's ominous quote suggesting he could be shut down for "a while," and with just late-round value on the year, he's not really worth rostering through this injury in most formats.
Jan 8 - 2:25 PM

Kyle Anderson played 36 minutes vs. the Blazers on Sunday, scoring eight points (2-of-4 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with six rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Kawhi Leonard (left shoulder) was out tonight and Gregg Popovich said that he's dealing with a partial tear, but we don't have any more details. The Spurs are listing Kawhi as questionable for Monday but it would be surprising to see him return that quickly -- even Thursday's road game seems like a stretch. With Rudy Gay (heel) also ailing, Anderson should get another heavy workload in a road game vs. the Kings.
Jan 8 - 12:31 AM

Danny Green (groin), Kawhi Leonard (rest) and Tony Parker (rest) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers.

While Leonard and Parker are simply receiving rest days as they work themselves back into things, Green is dealing with an actual injury and Gregg Popovich hinted after Tuesday's game that he could be "shut down for a while." With all these guys unavailable on Wednesday, Kyle Anderson, Bradon Paul and Bryn Forbes will all have the opportunity for some extended run. Green hasn't played well enough this season to warrant a hold through this injury.
Jan 3 - 12:23 PM

Kyle Anderson (knee) looked great in his return to action on Wednesday, posting five points on 2-of-4 shooting, one 3-pointer, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 24 minutes.

Anderson sprained his MCL on Dec. 3 and wound up missing eight consecutive games. He was supposed to be on a 15-minute limit tonight, but he was balling and the Spurs opted to re-insert him late in a close game -- they escaped with a 93-91 road win. Based on early indications, Slo Mo's restrictions shouldn't be nearly as onerous as Kawhi Leonard's.

Danny Green (groin) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Green missed Saturday's game in Phoenix in what could be described as a precautionary move, but he should be back in his regular role on Tuesday night. Kawhi Leonard (quad) is also probable to make his regular-season debut against the Mavs, and once he's fully up to speed, there won't be quite as much opportunity for Green on offense.

Kyle Anderson (MCL sprain) will have an MRI on Monday, but he was walking under his own power in the locker room after the game.

Anderson could be looking at an extended absence, but we'll know more on Monday. "It was a lot of pain," Anderson said. "We’ll see what they say." Even if he's cleared to play, fantasy owners should be leery of him with Kawhi Leonard (quad) reportedly in the "last steps" of his rehab. Pop vowed to find minutes for Anderson even with Kawhi active, but a reduced role could ruin his appeal in standard leagues. Deep-league owners should stay tuned for the MRI results.

LaMarcus Aldridge erupted for a season-high 41 points in a win vs. Memphis on Wednesday, making 17-of-24 shots (3-of-3 from deep) with six rebounds, one assist and one block.

Gregg Popovich has been heaping praise on Aldridge for carrying the Spurs without Kawhi Leonard (quad), and he said unequivocally: "[Aldridge] has been an All-Star." We're not arguing, and neither are fantasy owners, as Aldridge is locked into second-round value through 21 games. Pop did say recently that Kawhi is "very close" to playing, which is a threat to LA's 27.9% usage rate -- the good news is that unlike previous seasons, Aldridge has established himself as a necessary, go-to option for the Spurs' offense.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 01:50:00 AM

Gregg Popovich said that the Spurs would be "lost" this season if it weren't for LaMarcus Aldridge.

"He's gotten us through this period of time without Tony [Parker] and Kawhi [Leonard] in a wonderful way," Popovich said of Aldridge. "He's scoring, he's playing defense, rebounding, running the floor. We'd really be lost without him." Despite not having their two-time defensive player of the year, the Spurs have gotten off to a 12-7 record this season, good enough for the No. 3 seed out West. However, Leonard does appear to be inching his way closer to a return, so LMA owners should consider selling high as it's unlikely he'll maintain a top-20 evaluation upon Leonard's return.

Kyle Anderson hit 4-of-10 shots for 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes of Monday's start against the Mavericks.

Anderson has quietly scored in double figures in five straight games, averaging 12.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.8 steals on 54 percent shooting over that stretch. The 10 boards tied his season high and he's worth picking up right now if you have someone to drop, but he should take a big usage hit once Kawhi Leonard (quad) is finally ready to make his season debut.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 10:57:00 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge torched the Mavs for 33 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and three blocks on Monday, also knocking down all seven of his free throws in a 115-108 win.

Aldridge was incredibly efficient tonight as his dream season continues. He's rolling for the Spurs, averaging 22.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 blocks on 54 percent shooting over his last five games. He'll take a hit once Kawhi Leonard is back for the Spurs, which could be happening in the next couple weeks. Now might be a good time to try to sell high on LMA.

Rudy Gay tied his season-high with 22 points on Tuesday, hitting 8-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Gay made 2-of-2 free throws with one turnover in 24 minutes. He's been solid for anyone who drafted him late, and is coming on strong in his past three games with averages of 18.0 points on 53.9 percent shooting, 1.7 threes, 6.3 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.7 steals. He should retain value even when Kawhi Leonard (quad) returns to action.
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 11:48:00 PM

Danny Green played 33 minutes on Wednesday, finishing the Spurs' season-opening victory with 17 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

Green made 7-of-16 shots, including three 3-pointers, and his level of offensive engagement was eye-opening. Kawhi Leonard (quad) was out tonight, of course, and the Spurs are taking it easy with Rudy Gay (24 minutes), but this is still a great sign for all of Green's owners. He's built for 9-cat.

Kyle Anderson (ankle) helped the Spurs earn a 107-99 win on Wednesday, scoring 12 points with nine rebounds in 30 minutes as a starter.

Anderson started at SF in place of Kawhi Leonard (quad) and he looked great -- he made 5-of-9 shots including a 3-pointer, blocked one shot, and didn't turn the ball over. It's unclear when Kawhi will return, which gives Anderson some appeal as a DFS play or short-term option in deeper leagues. His recent ankle injury obviously isn't a concern.

Kyle Anderson (ankle) will start vs. the Wolves on Wednesday.

Anderson's ankle injury was never serious, and it's interesting to see him get the nod at SF ahead of Rudy Gay. He's not the best per-minute fantasy producer, however, and is more of a DFS punt-play until Kawhi Leonard (quad) returns.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol (rest), Patty Mills (rest), Kyle Anderson (ankle) and Kawhi Leonard (quad) will not suit up for Sunday's preseason game against the Nuggets.

Gasol logged a decent amount of minutes this summer at the EuroBasket tournament, so the Spurs will be taking it easy on him during the preseason, and given his age, he'll likely be picking up some DNP-Olds during the regular-season as well. The Spurs take the floor again for a preseason matchup with the Magic on Tuesday, and for now, we'll be considering all these guys questionable for that one.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 02:45:00 PM

Rudy Gay (rest, Achilles) will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Kings.

Gay has been fully cleared for game action, but as per usual with the Spurs, they'll be taking it easy on their vets for tonight's meaningless game. If Kawhi Leonard (quad) isn't ready for the start of the year, Gay could open the season as San Antonio's starting three-man, so he could be someone to consider taking a late-round flier on on draft day.
Mon, Oct 2, 2017 03:12:00 PM

Mike Conley suffered a right eye injury during Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Conley and Kawhi Leonard had a head-to-head collision, but Conley was quickly ruled out and Leonard was fine after a few moments. There was a lot of blood around Conley's right eye, so expect them to run some tests in the back. Hopefully the Grizzlies will provide an update after the game. He finished with 19 points, six assists, two rebounds, two steals and two triples. If he misses time, Andrew Harrison and Wade Baldwin will both benefit, but there are no great fantasy pickups for now. You can check out the incident below.
Tue, Apr 4, 2017 11:17:00 PM

Speaking with reporters on Monday, Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich hinted that he plans to rest some of his players over the final six games of the season.

The Spurs play four games in five nights, and six games total over the final nine days of the season. Also, they are essentially locked into the two seed. Kawhi Leonard said he doesn't want to rest, but he may not have a choice in the matter. "That’s a lot of games, a lot of activity for the end of the season," Popovich said. "I think we need to manage it wisely."
Tue, Apr 4, 2017 10:36:00 AM

Kyle Anderson and Davis Bertans will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

Danny Green (quad) and LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) will not play today, so Anderson and Bertans will get the call to move into the starting lineup. Joining them will be Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Dewayne Dedmon. With Leonard and Pau Gasol healthy, it's unlikely that Anderson or Bertans will do enough to make a difference in most leagues.
