Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Records 12 points in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three blocks and two assists over 27 minutes in Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Mavericks.

Walker stepped into the starting five Wednesday in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder), and he logged his highest scoring output since Jan. 8, as he converted on both of his attempts from beyond the arc. Wednesday's performance marked just the second time Walker crossed the double-digit threshold in scoring over the past 21 games, and he holds little fantasy value, even in the deepest of leagues.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: To start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker will start Wednesday's game against Dallas, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Walker will get his fourth start of the season, replacing LaMarcus Aldridge, who's out with a shoulder injury. Walker was unsuccessful in his other three appearances with the first unit, and managed just 6.0 points, 3.3 rebounds 2.7 steals and 1.7 assists in 26.0 minutes on average.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Poor effort once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker scored two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in 23 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 131-103 loss at Oklahoma City. He also added four rebounds, three assists and one block.

Walker started two games before the All-Star break, but he has been coming off the bench most of the season. He has struggled to produce at a decent level and has not reached the 10-point plateau in six straight games. He should be left on waivers moving forward regardless of the format, as he's not producing enough to justify a roster spot even in the deepest leagues.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Limited impact as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker tallied six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and three steals in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 win at Oklahoma City.

Walker delivered another poor performance in his second straight start of the season, and he has topped the 10-point plateau just once in his last 18 contests. Walker might remain in the starting lineup as long as DeMar DeRozan (back) is out, but based on his recent form, there's no reason to think he can be a valuable fantasy contributor outside of the deepest formats.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Thunder, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

With DeMar DeRozan out for a second straight matchup to tend to back spasms, Walker will once again take his spot in the starting five. Walker posted four points, five rebounds and four assists in his second start of the season during Monday's loss against Denver.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Struggles as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker notched four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 127-120 loss at Denver.

Walker was the only Spurs starter who couldn't reach the 10-point threshold and he was outplayed by the likes of Patty Mills and Derrick White off the bench. Walker got the start -- his second of the current season -- due to DeMar DeRozan's back injury, and his value moving forward will depend on the former Raptors star's availability.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is starting Monday's game against the Nuggets, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

Walker was a late addition to the starting lineup, as DeMar DeRozan was scratched minutes before tipoff due to back spasms. Walker hasn't drawn a start since Jan. 4 in Milwaukee, finishing with eight points and two steals across 26 minuted during that matchup.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker: Reaches double figures
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added three rebounds and one block in 15 minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Spurs' 129-102 loss to the Lakers.

Walker was back in double figures in the scoring column for the first time since Jan. 8, ending a 14-game drought. The 21-year-old could be in store for an enhanced role if the Spurs find themselves removed from the playoff picture at some point in the second half, but his typically poor efficiency and lack of numbers outside of the points category suppress his overall fantasy upside.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Poor shooting limits output
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker finished with seven points (2-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 107-102 win over the Heat.

Walker has connected on just 32.1 percent of his attempts from the field over his last five games, finishing with no more than nine points in any of those outings. The second-year swingman typically doesn't offer much consistent production in other areas when his shot isn't falling, so he's probably best suited for deep leagues for now. His outlook could improve if coach Gregg Popovich decides at some point to marginalize starting shooting guard Bryn Forbes and hand more of Forbes' minutes to Walker.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Drops 19 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker scored 19 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three rebounds, an assist and a steal in only 19 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 129-114 win over the Celtics.

The second-year guard continues to see inconsistent minutes in the Spurs' backcourt rotation, scoring in double digits only twice in his last 10 games, but Walker's flashes of upside offer some hope that he could become a key figure in the San Antonio offense down the road. Until that happens, however, he's little more than a DFS deep-tournament dart throw, or a dynasty-league stash, for fantasy purposes.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Moves back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker will come off the bench Monday against Milwaukee, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Walker drew his first start of the season Saturday against the Bucks, but he was held to just eight points in 26 minutes of action. He'll return to his usual bench role Monday, allowing for Bryn Forbes to start at shooting guard.

January 5, 2020 03:36 PM
Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Only eight points in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker managed eight points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals and one assist in 26 minutes during Saturday's 127-118 loss to the Bucks.

Walker made the first start of his career in what was certainly an interesting move by head coach Gregg Popovich. Bryn Forbes shifted back to the bench and so there is reason to think Walker's promotion could be a permanent thing. Walker was certainly not at his best in this one but Forbes was equally unimpressive in his bench role. If Walker remains the starter, he could start to trend up in standard leagues. We are not running to grab him just yet but the situation absolutely warrants monitoring.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker will start Saturday's contest against the Bucks.

With Dejounte Murray (personal) out, Walker will make the first start of his career. In the four games this season that Walker has seen at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 17.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 25.3 minutes.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Explodes for 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker IV scored 20 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes of action during Thursday's 109-103 loss to the Thunder.

Walker IV certainly makes his minutes count when Coach Gregg Popovich calls his number. Going all the way back to early December, Walker IV has posted double-digit scoring in any game where he has logged at least 20 minutes. While not currently a viable fantasy option for most rosters, Walker IV may be an interesting player to stash for the future.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) will play Monday against the Rockets, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

Walker picked up a knee contusion over the weekend, but he's been cleared to play in Houston on Monday after getting through pregame warmups with no issues. He's averaging 13.8 points and 3.0 rebounds across 21.6 minutes over his last five appearances.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Goes through shootaround
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) remains questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets, though he took part in the Spurs' morning shootaround, Matthew R. Tynan of The Athletic reports.

Walker is tending to a right knee contusion in the aftermath of Saturday's overtime win over the Suns, during which he provided 16 points and three boards in 21 minutes. His ability to take part in shootaround is a positive sign with regard to his status for Monday, but official word on his status may not arrive until closer to the 8 p.m. ET tipoff.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is questionable for Monday's game at Houston with a right knee contusion, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

Walker suffered the previously undisclosed lower-body injury during Saturday's matchup with the Suns, but it's now revealed he's dealing with a knee bruise. The 20-year-old has come on strong for the Spurs over the last five games, averaging 13.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 21.6 minutes.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker suffered an undisclosed lower-body injury during Saturday's game against the Suns and was forced to exit, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.

More information should be available after the game, but Walker looks like he'll finish the contest -- which coincided with his 21st birthday -- with 16 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes. The 2018 first-round pick appears to have found a home on the Spurs' second unit, as he's averaging 13.8 points (on 54.2 percent shooting from the field), 3.0 rebounds, 1.2 triples, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 21.6 minutes over the past five games.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Offensive explosion Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had 28 points (10-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, three steals and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 135-133 double-overtime victory over the Rockets.

Walker exploded for a career-high scoring haul during the win, with 19 of his point coming in the fourth quarter alone. He basically carried the Spurs during that period, outscoring the Rockets by himself. This performance needs to be put into context before fantasy managers rush out to pick him up off the waiver wire. The Spurs were without LaMarcus Aldridge (thigh), and Walker got some extra run thanks to the two extra periods in addition to sporting a hot hand. Those in deeper formats could give him a look just to see if Walker can claim a more sizable role moving forward.

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Scores 13 in 16 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went for 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 16 minutes during Sunday's 132-98 loss to the Pistons.

Walker finished with season highs in scoring, assists, steals and minutes while reaching double figures in points for the second time in his last three appearances. The blowout nature of the contest was likely a key factor here, though Walker will look to keep it rolling during Tuesday's tilt versus the Rockets.
