San Antonio Spurs PF/C LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) will return to the lineup Tuesday night vs. the Dallas Mavericks after missing the past six games. Lonnie Walker has been ruled out due to a shin contusion. Getting Aldridge back is huge for the Spurs, who have been without Jakob Poeltl as well. San Antonio has relied heavily on Trey Lyles and Devin Eubanks the past two weeks. LMA should slide back into the starting lineup.

With Aldridge back — and if he isn’t limited — the Spurs won’t need as much out of Rudy Gay or Eubanks off the bench. DeMar DeRozan gets a plus since less attention is on him on the wing. If Aldridge isn’t limited much, he’s an OK DFS play at $6,500. I’m talking 25-30 minutes though, anything less and Aldridge would have to smash value. If Luka Doncic is out for the Mavs tonight, I like the Spurs getting points at home.
