Walker had 19 points (7-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Monday's 124-113 loss to the Nets.
Walker turned in what could very well be his best game of the season, continuing his recent return to form. Of course, we need to allow for the fact that the Spurs are without a number of regular rotational pieces, something that has afforded Walker additional playing time. Until both Keldon Johnson and Derrick White (health protocols) are back in the lineup, feel free to stream Walker in if you need points and triples.
Walker scored 17 points (7-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt) to go along with two rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes in Saturday's 117-114 win over the Pelicans.
Walker remained in the starting lineup with both Devin Vassell (COVID-19 protocols) and Derrick White (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined. He took advantage by scoring in double-digits for the fourth consecutive game. However, he also continued to struggle to produce any other stats despite the increased role, and is averaging only 2.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.5 steals per game this season.
Walker delivered 12 points (5-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 32 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Thunder.
Walker returned to the starting lineup following a three-game stint as a reserve, though he probably got the start solely because several other regulars were out -- including DeMar DeRozan (personal) and Derrick White (health and safety protocols). Walker didn't do much to take advantage of the opportunity, as he struggled from the field and didn't add much in the way of secondary stats. His role for San Antonio's next game -- at home against the Pelicans on Saturday -- will probably depend on whether DeRozan is able to return by then.
Walker will start Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Paul Garica of Project Spurs reports.
With a number of regulars, including DeMar DeRozan (personal) and Derrick White (health and safety protocols), unavailable, the Spurs will go with a starting five of Walker, Dejounte Murray, Luka Samanic, Trey Lyles and Jakob Poeltl, while LaMarcus Aldridge will be available off the bench. Walker started the first 22 games of the season before moving to the bench for the Spurs' final three games prior to a string of COVID-19 postponements. Wednesday will mark San Antonio's first game since Feb. 14.
Walker will come off the bench Tuesday against the Warriors and have a 20-minute restriction, Dan Weiss of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Walker missed the last two games with a stomach illness and will face some limitations upon his return to the court. Derrick White (rest) is sitting out the second half of the back-to-back set Tuesday, which could push Devin Vassell or Patty Mills into the starting five.
Walker (illness) will play in Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Walker missed the last two games with a stomach illness but he is set to return for Tuesday's contest. Though his stats aren't all that great, the 22-year-old guard is on pace for a career-best season with averages of 11.2 points on 40.5 percent shooting, 3.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.7 triples across 27.7 minutes per game.
Walker (illness) won't play Monday against the Warriors, but coach Gregg Popovich expects the guard to play in Tuesday's rematch, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The 22-year-old is missing his second consecutive game Monday due to a stomach illness, but he should be back on the court Tuesday. Walker would provide a big boost for the Spurs, since Derrick White (injury management) is poised to sit out the second half of the back-to-back set.
Walker (illness) won't play Monday against the Warriors.
Walker will be unavailable for a second consecutive game due to an illness. Derrick White started in his place Saturday and could see increased usage once again. It's not yet clear whether Walker could return for the second half of the back-to-back set Tuesday.
Walker (illness) won't play Saturday against the Rockets.
Walker only mustered two points in Wednesday's win, and he'll be unavailable Saturday due to an apparent illness. Derrick White and Devin Vassell could see increased run for the Spurs in his absence. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return Monday against the Warriors.
Walker recorded two points (1-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 111-108 win over the Timberwolves.
After a relatively strong start to the season, Walker hasn't been able to find his rhythm. Across the past 10 games, he's averaging 7.6 points on just 35.4 percent from the field and 30.0 percent from deep. As Walker's struggles have mounted, rookie Devin Vassell has seen increased run, and Derrick White should also cut into Walker's role once he fully ramps up from the foot injury that had sidelined him recently.
Walker recorded four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal in 16 minutes during Monday's 133-102 loss to the Grizzlies.
The slide continues for Walker, who no longer looks like a roster-worthy player in 12-team leagues. After putting up 49 points between a pair of games Jan. 10 and 12, Walker has averaged only 9.0 points on 39.5 percent shooting from the field over the Spurs' subsequent 10 contests. Don't expect much improvement for Walker, who could lose more minutes and usage in future contests once Derrick White fully ramps up in his return from a foot injury.
Walker compiled 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three steals, two rebounds and an assist across 20 minutes in Sunday's 121-101 win over the Wizards.
Walker has settled into the Spurs' starting lineup nicely, where he should remain until we see a Derrick White sighting. It was an accurate night of shooting for Walker, who has been on a cold streak of late and has had trouble with his normally sufficient three-point percentages.
Walker posted five points (2-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes during Monday's win over the Blazers.
Walker started the season with four straight games in double digits, but he's been quite inconsistent since then, mixing strong scoring exploits -- such as back-to-back games with at least 24 points on Jan. 10 and 12 -- with poor shooting displays such as Monday's. Walker has made just 40.5 percent of his shots and 35.6 percent of his three-point attempts across his last 10 games; he's averaged 12.7 points per contest in that stretch.
Walker registered 24 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, two assists and a block across 36 minutes in Tuesday's 112-102 win over the Thunder.
Walker left Sunday's game against the Timberwolves with cramps and what appeared to be a hamstring issue, but such issue wasn't noticeable here -- Walker paced the Spurs in scoring and registered his second straight contest with more than 20 points. Walker has scored in double digits in eight of his first 11 appearances this season, and all signs point toward him being in line for a career-best year, which should also translate into him becoming a reliable fantasy asset across most formats.
Walker notched 25 points (9-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block across 30 minutes in Sunday's 96-88d loss to the Timberwolves.
Walker posted his best scoring output of the season in this one, but that wasn't enough to carry the Spurs to victory. Perhaps the most interesting thing here was the fact that Walker left the game early due to what head coach Gregg Popovich termed as a hamstring cramp, but the player himself later confirmed he was completely healthy. He looks like he'll be ready to go for the Spurs' next game Tuesday at Oklahoma City.
Walker had 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one block in Thursday's win over the Lakers.
Walker tied his previous season highs of six field goals made and six boards that he established in the season opener. He is now averaging 12.4 points while shooting 43.8 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from deep. With this type of scoring and limited secondary stats, Walker could serve as a serviceable waiver-wire pickup in many leagues.
Walker scored nine points (3-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding two steals, a rebound, an assist and a block across 30 minutes in Tuesday's win at the Clippers.
The Spurs might have come away with the win Tuesday, but Walker struggled badly on offense once again. Over his last four starts, he's averaged 9.8 points while shooting a meager 36.6 percent from the field, including 25 percent from three-point range.
Walker scored 11 points (4-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and totaled four rebounds along with three assists in a loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.
Walker struggled through his worst shooting effort of the campaign in the loss but still managed to score in double figures for the fourth straight game to open the season. The third-year pro has been given extended run with Derrick White (toe) sidelined to begin the campaign and has performed reasonably well thus far, posting per-game averages of 14.3 points and 4.0 rebounds while making 43.5 percent of his shots from beyond the arc.
Walker recorded 16 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 131-119 win over the Grizzlies.
With Derrick White (toe) sidelined, coach Gregg Popovich gave Walker the nod in a guard-heavy starting five. He responded in a big way, shooting extremely efficiently and rebounding well in the victory. Once White returns in early-to-mid January, Walker's role could be reduced, but there are other players on the roster who could fall victim in a bigger way, including Keldon Johnson (32 minutes) and rookie Devin Vassell (20 minutes).
Walker contributed 17 points (6-11 Fg, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two steals, one rebound and one assist in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 112-98 loss to the Rockets.
Walker shifted into the starting lineup Tuesday with LaMarcus Aldridge moving to the center position. He shot the ball well, finishing with a team-high 17 points, although the supporting numbers left a little to be desired. His role could fluctuate throughout the season based on the individual matchups. While he is likely to have a meaningful role on most nights, his fantasy value is tricky to pinpoint, leaving him as more of a wait-and-see option.
