Lauvergne collected three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT), three assists, and one rebound in six minutes during Monday's 102-99 loss to the Hawks.
Lauvergne has been quiet lately, appearing in just seven of 12 games since he tallied 11 points and six boards in 26 minutes as a starter during a 100-89 loss versus the Jazz back on Dec. 21. Pau Gasol is dealing with an injury to his shooting hand, and it was Gasol's absence that allowed Lauvergne his last opportunity to start and exceed 15 minutes. If Gasol were to miss Wednesday's matchup against the Nets, Lauvergne could be among those to benefit from a fantasy perspective. Nevertheless, having cleared 20 minutes just twice this season while reaching double figures in scoring only three times through 26 appearances, Lauvergne remains a risky option at best.
Lauvergne, with Pau Gasol (groin) out, will draw the start at center for Thursday's contest against the Jazz, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Lauvergne will likely see extended run as well. In games where he's seen at least 10 minutes of action, he's posted 7.1 points and 4.6 rebounds per contest.
Lauvergne recorded 14 points (7-8 FG), four rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes during Friday's 124-109 loss to the Rockets.
Lauvergne's previous finger injury on his shooting hand seems to be in good shape as he shot 87.5 percent from the floor in limited action. Despite only playing 15 minutes, he was the second-leading scorer for the Spurs in a game where they were clearly outmatched. With the emergence of Kawhi Leonard and a healthy Pau Gasol, Lauvergne will only see worthy usage when Gasol is rested.
Lauvergne (finger) is listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Heat.
Lauvergne was also listed as probable for Monday's contest, but didn't see the court, so the probable designation doesn't necessarily mean he'll ultimately get any playing time. That said, it may be wise to avoid Lauvergne in fantasy leagues for the time being until he's back to full strength. Lauvergne has averaged just 11.3 minutes this season, so he's largely been a non-factor in fantasy anyway.
