Gay finished Sunday's 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers with 19 points (7-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal. Gay remains in the midst of the worst statistical season of his career, but he's at least noticed a temporary boost in value thanks to the absence of LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder). While Gay hasn't been summoned to take Aldridge's spot in the starting five, the veteran has absorbed a good portion of the vacated offensive usage and minutes. During Aldridge's six-game absence, Gay has averaged 13.3 points (on 45.7 percent shooting from the floor), 6.2 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.3 three-pointers in 27.0 minutes.
Gay posted 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes during Friday's 139-120 loss to the Nets. With LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) out across the past five games, Gay has seen increased responsibilities. Over this span, he's averaging 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 25.2 minutes, scoring in double figures in the past four contests. As long as Aldridge continues to be sidelined, Gay makes for a reasonable fantasy option in deeper season-long leagues.
Gay amassed 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 114-113 victory over the Magic. Gay turned back the clock Saturday, basically putting up season-high numbers across the board. With the Spurs very thin on frontcourt options, Gay made the most of his opportunity, flashing his once consistent fantasy-friendly game. At this stage, we have to assume this kind of production won't last; however, if the injuries linger, he could be worth keeping an eye on.
Gay scored 14 points (4-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 18 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 131-103 loss at the Thunder. Gay struggled with his shot in this one, but he compensated for that with a solid rebounding line. That said, most of Gay's value should be tied to his scoring, and he's been poor in that department lately, averaging just 6.2 points per game on 39.6 percent shooting through nine February contests.
Gay finished with four points (2-6 FG), four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes during Friday's 113-104 victory over Utah. Gay continues to trend in the wrong direction and has been outside the top-250 over the past two weeks. Gay is certainly no spring-chicken and the Spurs appear to be edging him out of the rotation more every week. There has been no indication his production is going to increase and he can be safely left on waivers in all competitive formats.
