DeMar DeRozan (personal) expected back with Spurs by weekend
San Antonio Spurs guard/forward DeMar DeRozan (personal) is expected to join the Spurs "at some point" during their current five-game road trip, per head coach Gregg Popovich.
The Spurs started their road trip on Sunday and will remain away through Saturday when they face the Milwaukee Bucks. His next opportunities to play are Monday versus the Detroit Pistons and then Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls. DeRozan has been away from the team since last week to tend to the passing of his father. Trey Lyles has started each of the past two games in place of DeRozan but hasn't logged 15 minutes in either contest while totaling just a single point on 0-for-4 shooting. Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, and Keldon Johnson are more apt at filling the void on offense for San Antonio.
numberFire's models expect DeRozan to remain sidelined Monday and view White as the second-best value available at the point guard position on the eight-game slate. That is in spite of the fact the Pistons are allowing the fifth-fewest points per game to White's position this season. He has a salary of $5,300 and our models project White for 30.4 FanDuel points.
