Laprovittola drew some attention for his play with Argentina in the 2016 Summer Olympics, and was able to carry over that success to training camp with the Spurs, with the 26-year-old doing a quality job of directing the offense. While Laprovittola doesn't profile as a long-term successor to the aging Tony Parker, he'll provide the team with some experienced depth at the position. That will allow rookie Dejounte Murray to see some more extended run in the D-League this season.
As was the case during his college career at Michigan State, Forbes made his living exclusively from downtown during the preseason, averaging 9.5 points per game while connecting on 58.3 percent of his three-point attempts. With Danny Green (quad) likely out for the first three weeks of the season, Forbes will give the Spurs some insurance at shooting guard, but he's not expected to see much run at the position behind Kyle Anderson, Jonathon Simmons and Manu Ginobili.
Leonard put up 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 18 minutes in Friday's 114-99 preseason win over the Rockets.
With the Spurs ruling Danny Green (quad) out for three weeks prior to Friday's game, Leonard settled in next to a new partner on the wing in Kyle Anderson, though it's unclear if Anderson will remain in that role once the regular season arrives. Green's absence shouldn't affect Leonard too much, as the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is bound to deliver high-end two-way production whether he slots in at shooting guard, power forward or his more natural small forward spot. He's still a worthy investment in the later in the first round or early in the second round in most fantasy formats.
Anderson started at shooting guard in Friday's preseason finale against the Rockets, producing 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 20 minutes.
After stating earlier in training camp that he hoped to find more minutes for Anderson this season, coach Gregg Popovich may have been granted his wish Friday, though in less-than-ideal fashion. Starting shooting guard Danny Green was diagnosed with a quad strain and was subsequently ruled out for three weeks, which enabled Anderson to move up to the top unit Friday. It's unclear, however, if he'll stick there when the Spurs open their regular season Tuesday against the Warriors. Jonathon Simmons (calf) also sat out Friday's game with a minor injury, but is expected to return for the opener and could ultimately prove to be a better replacement for Green given his three-point shooting ability, a skill Anderson lacks. Regardless of how it shakes out, Anderson and Simmons profile as the main beneficiaries of Green's absence, with both set to see enhanced minutes as a result.
Coach Gregg Popovich said that Simmons (calf) will miss "a few days," but the swingman is not expected to miss Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Warriors, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
With the Spurs ruling Danny Green (quad) out for three weeks and Simmons also sitting out Friday's preseason finale against the Rockets with a calf contusion, the team suddenly finds itself thin on healthy bodies at shooting guard. Kyle Anderson ended up settling into the starting lineup Friday in place of Green, but if Simmons' injury proves to be as minor as the Spurs suggest, he could end up absorbing a decent chunk of Green's minutes, too. At the very least, look for Simmons to slide up to the second unit, with him and Manu Ginobili serving as the top two backup wings behind Anderson and Kawhi Leonard.
