Eubanks (rest) posted 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 24 minutes during the Spurs' 79-78 loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
Eubanks drew the start at center and put together another strong showing, checking in second behind Quinndary Weatherspoon in scoring on the Spurs for the night. The big man saw action in 23 regular-season games during his rookie 2018 campaign, averaging a modest 4.9 minutes over those contests. He was naturally much more productive in G League action, averaging 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.5 blocks across 25 minutes in 32 games.
Eubanks will sit out Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League matchup with the Hornets for rest purposes, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Eubanks has played in 31 games with Austin this season, averaging 16.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in 25.3 minutes per game. The center has been one of the primary scorers for Austin, and has thrived with pick-and-roll options such as Travis Trice and Lonnie Walker.
Eubanks led the Spurs with 30 points (11-13 FG, 8-9 FT), six rebounds and three blocks in the Austin's 132-116 loss to Stockton on Sunday.
While the final score might not indicate it, Eubanks was near unstoppable around the basket. Eubanks shot well throughout the evening, scoring 15 points a half, but couldn't keep the Spurs alive in the game. Eubanks isn't entirely to blame, particularly considering the Kings outshot the Spurs from behind the arc 50 percent to 39.3 percent on an equal 24 attempts. His four turnovers, however, were costly, netting Eubanks a plus/minus of -14 and ensuring that the Spurs had dug themselves into a deep hole by the time the offense came alive in the fourth.
Eubanks was sent back to the G League on Thursday, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Eubanks has played just 11 minutes for the Spurs since the start of January, so he'll rejoin the Austin Spurs in order to see more consistent run. Through 14 games in the G League this season, Eubanks is averaging 15.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks across 23.7 minutes.

The rookie is unlikely to see the floor Wednesday unless the game turns into a blowout.

Eubanks has been splitting time between Austin and the team's NBA affiliate, so this designation could simply be a way for the center to get some rest. Austin will take on Salt Lake City on Saturday.
Eubanks tallied 22 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and five blocks in the win Tuesday over the Vipers.
Eubanks was eight-for-10 from the field and a perfect six-for-six from the charity stripe, but it was his work from the defensive end that was truly impressive. Five blocks for a center isn't incredibly stunning, but it's more of a confirmation that the 6-10 big man is a force, particularly for an Austin team that lacks any true size in their starting lineup.
