  • Lakers' Lonnie Walker: Full-contact participant Saturday

    Walker (ankle) took part in Saturday's full-contact practice, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Walker was non-contact early in training camp, but it appears he's fully back in the fold with the preseason set to start Monday. He should slot in as a bench guard for the Lakers in 2022-23 but will face more competition for minutes than he did last season in Sacramento.

  • Lakers' Lonnie Walker: Joins Lakers on one-year deal

    Walker and the Lakers agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract Thursday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    After having his qualifying offer pulled by the Spurs earlier in the day Thursday, Walker will head to LA to help improve the team's backcourt following the departure of Malik Monk. The 23-year-old Walker is coming off a 2021-22 season in which he averaged 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists. Walker could see a significant role either as a potential starter or a depth role off the bench behind Austin Reaves or Talen Horton-Tucker.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Qualifying offer pulled

    Walker had his qualifying offer pulled by the Spurs, making him an unrestricted free agent, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Initially, Walker was going to be restricted, but it appears the Spurs are fine letting him walk without contest. Last season, Walker averaged 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 23.0 minutes. He struggled with efficiency, shooting 40.7 percent from the field, 31.4 percent from three and 78.4 percent from the free-throw line. Next year will be his age 24 season. Charania says there will be a strong market for the guard immediately.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Becomes restricted free agent

    Walker was tendered a qualifying offer by the Spurs on Wednesday, making him a restricted free agent, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    The expectation is that Walker will fully test the free-agent market, so fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if he ends up on another team next season. Last season, Walker averaged 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 23.0 minutes. He struggled with efficiency, shooting 40.7 percent from the field, 31.4 percent from three and 78.4 percent from the free-throw line.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Will play Wednesday

    Walker (back) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's play-in game against the Pelicans, Bruno Passos of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

    Walker was sidelined for two of the last three regular-season games, but he'll be available for the win-or-go-home matchup against New Orleans. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 11.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.0 steals in 21.4 minutes per game.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Ruled out Sunday

    Walker has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Mavericks due to low back tightness, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

    Walker will be sidelined for the second time over the Spurs' last three contests due to a back injury. The fourth-year wing totaled 24 points (8-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Warriors and didn't appear to aggravate the injury, so Sunday's absence is likely precautionary. His next chance to play will be Wednesday's win-or-go-home play-in matchup against the Pelicans.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Pours in 24 points Saturday

    Walker accumulated 24 points (8-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Saturday's 100-94 loss to the Warriors.

    Walker missed San Antonio's previous contest with a back injury, but he looked none the worse for wear against Golden State. The University of Miami product led all scorers with 24 points in the loss, registering his highest scoring output since he put up 30 points against Sacramento on March 3. Walker had been struggling entering Saturday, averaging just 6.4 points on 32.4 percent shooting over 17.0 minutes over his previous five appearances while battling the lingering back issue.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Not on injury report

    Walker (back) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

    Walker sat out Thursday's game against Minnesota due to a back injury, but he should return to the court Saturday. The 23-year-old has averaged 8.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 20.0 minutes per game across his last four appearances.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Ruled out Thursday

    Walker (back) will not play Thursday against Minnesota.

    Walker was questionable coming in, but he'll sit out Thursday after playing in each of the last four games. Expect Devin Vassell, Joshua Primo and potentially Romeo Langford to soak up most of Walker's workload.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Questionable Thursday

    Walker (back) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, Bruno Passos of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

  • Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Rough shooting in win

    Walker produced eight points (2-9 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, four rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes in Sunday's 113-92 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Playing in his third consecutive contest after a recent four-game absence due to a back injury, Walker was unable to take advantage of the scoring void that was left open by the absence of Dejounte Murray (illness). The Spurs will likely have both Murray and Jakob Poeltl (back) available for their next game Tuesday against the Nuggets, so Walker could be one of several supplementary pieces that loses minutes as a result.

    Walker (back) is officially available for Wednesday's contest against the Grizzlies, independent NBA writer Matthew Tynan reports.

    As expected, Walker will make his return Wednesday following a four-game absence due to back spasms. The fourth-year guard is averaging a career-high 12.2 points this season, but it's unclear if he'll be limited at all during his first full game in two weeks.
