Sam Young SG/SF SA 10 Months
The Spurs have waived Sam Young, according to Jared Zwerling of Turner Sports.
Young was in the running for a roster spot at backup SF, along with Corey Maggette and guys like Courtney Fells and Dan Nwaelele. Gregg Popovich said that Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobili will slide over and play SF occasionally, but he added that they're both "a little bit slight for some of the teams we're going to play."

Sam Young and Corey Maggette will be battling for the final roster spot in San Antonio.
According to Gregg Popovich, Sam Young and Corey Maggette were brought in to serve as potential backups behind Kawhi Leonard. "They're both big, strong people for the position," Popovich said. Although serviceable backups in the NBA, for fantasy purposes Young and Maggette can rest safely on the waiver wire.

Free agent F Sam Young reportedly met with the Spurs in San Antonio last week.
The Spurs are thin behind Kawhi Leonard at SF and may have use for a guy like Young, who averaged 2.8 points in 12 minutes per game with the Pacers last year. As those numbers indicate, he won't have fantasy value while stuck in a marginal backup role.

Sam Young (sprained ankle) had two points and three rebounds in eight minutes on Sunday, part of a 16-point effort from the Pacers' bench.
The Pacers' stingy defense was overrun by the Heat tonight, allowing 114 points, and Miami's lead swelled by 12 points during Young's brief time on the court. The good news is that his ankle injury shouldn't be a limitation when Indiana tries to even the series in Game 4 on Tuesday.

Sam Young said that his sprained ankle is "fine" and he'll be ready to play in Game 3 vs. Miami on Sunday.
Young suffered what looked like a pretty bad sprain in the third quarter on Friday and we don't expect him to be 100 percent healthy, but the four-year veteran will be ready to play 10 minutes as a defensive stopper off the bench.

Sam Young suffered a sprained left ankle in the third quarter of Friday's game and is questionable to return.
He landed awkwardly near the basket on the defensive side of the court, then hobbled his way to halfcourt before heading to the locker room. Young has been getting plenty of burn and has been on the wrong end of a lot of big plays so far in this series. Lance Stephenson and Paul George will continue to get plenty of work on the wings.

Sam Young said his ankle feels fine, but he'll sit out Wednesday because the coaches want him to go through a full practice.
The Pacers re-signed the former second-round pick on Monday after waiving him earlier in January. Young has averaged 6.3 points and 2.4 rebounds in his career and doesn't present much fantasy value at all.
