White is listed among the scheduled participants in Major League Baseball's All-Star celebrity softball game in Denver on July 11, an indication that he has made a full recovery from the sprained ankle that sidelined him for the Spurs' final 13 games of the season, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. White is a native of Colorado, so his inclusion in the All-Star festivities at Coors Field makes sense. The Spurs likely wouldn't have signed off on him taking part in the exhibition event if he wasn't completely healthy, so White looks as though he'll be in store for a relatively normal offseason of training ahead of his fifth NBA season in 2021-22. In addition to the sprained ankle that ended his season, White missed extensive time in 2020-21 while recovering from August toe surgery, a subsequent aggravation of the toe injury and a bout with COVID-19. He shot a career-worst 41.1 percent from the field over his 36 games, but he was productive from a counting-stats standpoint with averages of 15.4 points, 3.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers, 1.0 blocks and 0.7 steals in 29.6 minutes per contest.
Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Wednesday that White (ankle) is unlikely to play again this season, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports. White hurt his ankle during Monday's game against the Wizards, and based on Popovich's comments, the injury is relatively serious. Assuming White is in fact shut down for the season, he'll end his fourth year in the league with a career-high average of 15.4 points to go with 3.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.0 blocks in 29.6 minutes. However, he played just 36 games, as he missed 18 of the Spurs' first 19 contests due to a toe injury. In White's absence, Lonnie Walker and Devin Vassell should see more minutes.
White (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Heat, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. White, as expected, will have to miss at least one game after he sprained his right ankle in Monday's win over the Wizards. After Monday's game, coach Gregg Popovich noted that White's injury "doesn't look good," which would lead one to believe that he could be sidelined for multiple contests. Lonnie Walker and Patty Mills likely will see an uptick in playing time while White is sidelined.
Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said after Monday's 146-143 overtime win over the Wizards that the right ankle sprain White suffered during the contest "doesn't look good," suggesting that the guard will likely miss time, RJ Marquez of KSAT 12 San Antonio reports. White will presumably undergo further tests before the Spurs provide an update on the severity of his injury, but fantasy managers should prepare for him to miss games after he wasn't able to put weight on his right foot and required assistance off the court in the third quarter. The ankle issue is yet another troubling setback on the health front for White, who had previously sat out 24 games due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, and a pair of left toe injuries. The 26-year-old had been playing the best basketball of his career since the All-Star break, averaging 16.4 points, 3.4 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 three-pointers and 1.0 blocks in 31.2 minutes per game over 28 second-half contests. Assuming White ends up being sidelined, Lonnie Walker and Patty Mills would likely be the top candidates to see added minutes in his stead.
White left Monday's game against Washington in the third quarter with an injured right ankle, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. White landed awkwardly after going for a block and had to be helped off the court by teammates. The 26-year-old has already missed 23 games this season due to injuries and COVID-related issues, and he could potentially be looking at more time off depending on the severity of the issue. He had posted nine points across 19 minutes prior to having to exit the game.
