With the league starting back up in late July in a bubble environment in Orlando, Florida, teams have been getting their rosters ready and set up for play.

The newly revised CBA allows the 22 teams playing in Orlando to bring 17 total players. 15 players on standard contracts and two additional two-way players, 13 being allowed to be active for a game.

There are additional rules and procedures for replacing players if they test positive in the bubble for coronavirus or have a season ending injury, but that replaced player would be ruled ineligible for the remainder of the season.

On Tuesday, the San Antonio Spurs signed center Tyler Zeller to their one available roster spot to round out the team roster set to attend the remainder of their season, and maybe a possible playoff appearance.

This is the final Spurs' roster (barring any changes possible from a player opting-out, additional injuries, etc.):

Guards

  • Dejounte Murray
  • Derrick White
  • Patty Mills
  • Bryn Forbes
  • Quinndary Weatherspoon (Two-Way Player)

Guard/Forwards

  • DeMar DeRozan
  • Lonnie Walker
  • Marco Belinelli
  • Keldon Johnson

Forwards

  • Trey Lyles
  • Rudy Gay
  • Chimezie Metu
  • Luka Samanic
  • Drew Eubanks (Two-Way Player)

Centers

  • LaMarcus Aldridge (Out for the Season - Shoulder)*
  • Jakob Poeltl
  • Tyler Zeller

Roster Notes: There was a proposed rule that would have allowed the Spurs to replace Aldridge’s roster spot due to his season ending injury, but this was not passed in favor of allowing two-way players to travel with the team. Thus why he is still part of the overall team roster.
