Samanic could get some minutes instead of Aldridge at the 4. He's healthy, young, and part of their future. LMA is none of those things and I expect him to be on a minutes restriction for a few games when he comes back.

i fully expect him to get traded before the ASB next week

I guess it makes sense that Bruce Wayne has mommy issues.

It's going to be hard. He's been useless all season, so he might just get bought out. I guess it doesn't matter either way for fantasy purposes.

So, is Poetl cleared to play in tonight's game? Just trying to figure out the healthy bodies available for tonight's game

Even should LaMarcus fail to suit up, Patty Mills, Dejounte Murray, Jakob Poeltl, Lonnie Walker IV, Trey Lyles, Drew Eubanks, Luka Samanic, Tre Jones, and Keita Bates-Diop gives them nine active players

I'm guessing some serious mins are in line for Poetl, Mills, Murray and Walker.

100% and will be interesting to see how LMA's return impacts the team. No Derozan so plenty of usage to go around

starting tonight

wanna see how this works out with LMA back in the mix

Me too - LMA is not starting. Not sure if he's there to spell Poetl or will they mix in both guys at the same time

Me three - let’s go !

I’m sitting here like patience on a monument waiting for the Spurs game to start. 

This should give us a decent indication on how it plays out between Poeltl & LMA.

But it’s still a situation we should monitor. Reason being the team isn’t fully healthy yet.  

With Gay, Keldon, DeRozan + D. White still out.

That’s like 70-80% usage right there.

Not that he requires alot of touches to provide value. However it’s something to keep an eye on

If he can pull a DD out of his hat for me tonight, I'd be super happy!!!!

Gotta go Ayton .  It’s just one of those situations 

Plus youll feel alot worse if DA goes off, as opposed to Jakob

If it was end of the week and you’re losing in stocks. I might sing a different tune

But that’s just me.

Hopefully both go off today & you’re good regardless. That would be sweet, as I have them in different leagues as well.

Let’s see what the Austrian sensation does very shortly.  Tip-off in 30 !

Yeah the minutes and continuing to start even with LMA is very positive. I'm thinking they bring LMA off the bench as their 6th man - he's still good enough to kill 2nd units. Meanwhile Poeltl anchors the defence with the starters.

To be fair, I 100% rage posted about Bazley before I dunked on you about this. I ended up being right on that one, but it's a dangerous game we play.

 

Considering what LMA has meant to the Spurs since '17-'18, I'm a little surprised that he's been moved to the bench. It's the right move but I'm skeptical that it will stick. There's a chance that Pop has seen the light.

So I have both Poeltl and LMA now. I need to hang on both, yes?

I would actually put Poeltl higher than LMA right now. Those blocks is Golden and if the minutes sticks, then you got yourself a Stock monster which is really hard to find on the ww

Same situation here. I'm hanging on to both for the time being to see how it shakes out. Best case scenario is poeltl starting and LMA coming off the bench as a 6th man where he can still get some meaningful production

Thanks man. Yeah I held thinking LMA would still need to be eased back in. But, then I remembered he wasn't even doing much prior to the injury.

Alright, until the wheels fall off then!! Makes much more sense for LMA to get going against other teams' bench players.
