The San Antonio Spurs will play a matinée game on Monday, Jan. 15. Before it gets underway, let’s look at the day’s latest news, notes and headlines.

On Monday, the San Antonio Spurs will play a mid-afternoon game as part of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The NBA will have games played throughout the day, with the Spurs vs. the Atlanta Hawks as one of the many that occur.

Prior to this, the Spurs played a game on Saturday night. This resulted in a dominant victory over the Denver Nuggets, 112-80. Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Danny Green all returned from injuries and played in the starting lineup.

After an off day, what developed for the Spurs? Will anything factor into Monday’s game vs. the Hawks? Let’s take a look at the latest news, notes and headlines for the day:

  • The Spurs announced the official injury report for the Hawks game, and it’s unusually short. Only Rudy Gay will not play, due to right heel bursitis.
  • For the Silver and Black, the Nuggets win was a rare night of normality. Almost everyone was healthy, which allowed head coach Gregg Popovich to role out the rotation that may have been planned all along.
  • In the offseason, it appeared LaMarcus Aldridge had a decent chance of being traded. If it did happen, where would the Spurs be at the midway point of the 2017-18 season?
  • Pounding the Rock recently looked at the star role players of the Spurs’ championship runs, with No. 11 as a frequent occurrence.
  • It’s the final day of All-Star voting, so it’s time for Spurs fans to get the final tallies in for their favorite players. Fans can start by voting for LaMarcus Aldridge, who carried this team in the first half.

24 hours left to vote. How many retweets can we get?!
