Harrison Barnes, former AP student, was cited as being the best Pop Quiz contestant. “Derrick White’s eliminated automatically,” Mitchell said. “because he’s used to it [playing for Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs]. I would say the best has been Harrison Barnes. We haven’t had too many guys go up yet. But we’ve all chipped in.” “I think the only person who got one right was Harrison,” Jayson Tatum added. “Everybody else had to ask a friend.”

White left the game with a sizeable ice pack on the left side of his head, the Associated Press reported. ESPN reported that “White is recovering” after the third-year guard needed four stitches to close a gash over his left eye.

Tom Orsborn: Jerry Colangelo says a “few extra” players will accompany Team USA to L.A. next week. “Every indication” points to Derrick White being one of them, a league source says. #Spurs expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…
Marc Stein: As @USABasketball prepares for its fourth day of practice in Las Vegas, I’m told Sacramento’s Marvin Bagley and San Antonio’s Derrick White have emerged as the strongest of contenders to be included in the roughly 15-man contingent expected to proceed to Los Angeles next week
Ric Bucher: Derrick White is being invited to LA when Team USA reconvenes there next week, a program official told me, which essentially means he has been promoted from the select practice squad to the World Cup roster. (Look for Marvin Bagley to be promoted as well.) One coach told me White was the best player on either team in the Day 2 scrimmages and on Day 3 I saw him damn near replicate that with my own eyes as the select squad played the World Cup squad to a draw in consecutive 10-minute scrimmages.
John Schuhmann: Jerry Colangelo today cited Marvin Bagley & Derrick White as two guys that have stood out on the Select Team through 3 days of camp. Bagley scored quite a bit inside in the portion of scrimmaging that the media saw today.
Mike Finger: Media couldn’t watch the entire scrimmage between USA’s World Cup team (varsity) and select team (jv). But two people who were in the gym just told me the select team dominated in stretches, and both said one of the biggest reasons why was Derrick White.
The 14-man USA Basketball Select Team includes Jarrett Allen (Brooklyn Nets); Marvin Bagley III (Sacramento Kings); Mikal Bridges (Phoenix Suns); Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks); John Collins (Atlanta Hawks); Pat Connaughton (Milwaukee Bucks); Craig; De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings); Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets); Jonathan Isaac (Orlando Magic); Jaren Jackson Jr. (Memphis Grizzlies); Mitchell Robinson (New York Knicks); Derrick White (San Antonio Spurs); and Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks).
Congratulations to San Antonio Spurs’ Patty Mills and his new bride Alyssa Mills as the couple recently tied the knot. A photo recently surfaced from the reception and on hand for the special day were Mills’ former Spurs teammates Tim Duncan and Boris Diaw with his current teammate, Derrick White, on hand to celebrate.
But who do you think is considered valued highest/untouchable and who do you think is likely to be traded? Jabari Young: Think right now, Derrick and Dejounte are the only untouchables. And if someone offers a nice deal for Bertans, I think Spurs will bite.
After guiding the Spurs to the postseason, White exploded for 36 points in Game 3 versus Denver and opened eyes across the NBA landscape. However, as the Spurs’ opening-round series against the Nuggets has now reached six games, White has sputtered at times. “He’s basically a young kid who’s feeling his way,” head coach Gregg Popovich said. “Playoffs are different than the regular season.”
White is also having the tough task of guarding Denver’s Jamal Murray and at times Gary Harris. He is also learning that the postseason is much more physical than the regular season. “They (Nuggets) are just being more physical and not letting me get to my spot,” White said recently.
Harrison Wind: More Malone, on holding Derrick White in check in Game 4 after his career-high in points in Game 3: “Game 3 it was a Derrick White highlight film, or horror show, depending on what vantage point you’re looking at.”
Michael Singer: Gary Harris on whether Jamal Murray took what Derrick White did in Game 3 personally: “I think we all did. Not just Jamal. It just wasn’t on him. It was on all of us. I think we’re all going to take it personally.”
Nick Kosmider: Gregg Popovich said Derrick White’s trajectory “has been like a rocket ship the last few years.” Added, “We put him in a frying pan and he had to sink or swim. He’s been swimming pretty well.”
Tom Orsborn: Aldridge on White’s dunk over Millsap: “I called it both of our dunks because I screamed like I dunked it. It’s like his dunk, but we are going to share it and say it’s, ‘Our dunk.’ ” #Spurs
Tom Orsborn: More from LA on White: “When he is aggressive like that going to the rim, he’s athletic enough that he can make things happen. That was big for us because we all kind of got some juice from it, and it kind of settled him down and got him back into a rhythm.” #Spurs
Paul Garcia: For Sunday’s Spurs-Knicks game, LaMarcus Aldridge and Derrick White are both listed as PROBABLE again
Second-year pro Derrick White, who had emerged as one of the team’s most important pieces before missing the first five games of the rodeo road trip with a plantar fascia injury in his right foot, traveled with the Spurs to Toronto for the start of leg 2. Though the 24-year-old White has not been formally ruled in for tonight’s game against the Raptors at Scotiabank Arena, he’s listed as probable. Coach Gregg Popovich showed confidence he at least would be ready to return at some point on the trip that moves on to New York on Sunday and Brooklyn on Monday.

Tom Orsborn: Asked Derrick White pre-game about the possibility of playing in the Rising Stars game during All-Star Weekend: “It would be pretty cool, but I haven’t heard anything. Growing up, you just watch all the events at the All-Star game. It would be cool to be a part of any event.”
Brett Dawson: For those wondering, NBA last 2 minute report says there was an incorrect non-call on Derrick White’s block on Jerami Grant at 1:45 2OT. White “makes contact with Grant’s wrist and affects his shot attempt.”
Paul Garcia: “Just playing aggressive,” said Derrick White of his progression lately. White said last year playing in the G-League was a big benefit to where he’s at today. “He’s a beast down low,” said White of Aldridge.
Paul Garcia: Pop on DeRozan bouncing back from his early 3/12 shooting start: “That’s why he’s been an All-Star for so long. He’s very confident, he knows what he can do.” Pop also gave some credit to Derrick White, saying he came in ready tonight.
Tom Orsborn: Pop on White’s return making life easier for DeRozan and Forbes: “They are not point guards. And Derrick has assumed that position since we brought him to the Spurs, and he has developed real well. Hopefully, he will continue that process.” #Spurs
In just two games back from his injury, White has shown he may have what it takes to not just be a fill-in point-guard but a viable asset for the team’s future at the most important position in the NBA. “He’s a heady kid, he sees the floor real well, he’s got a great pace about him,” head coach Gregg Popovich said following the team’s win Saturday over the Rockets.
Guard Derrick White could make his season debut against the Heat on Wednesday in Miami after the Spurs listed him as probable in their injury report released Tuesday night. White has been sidelined since he tore a ligament in his foot late in the preseason. He was slated to start at point guard after Dejounte Murray suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason.
Paul Garcia: Derrick White has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday’s game in Miami. Pau Gasol (right foot soreness), Rudy Gay, Murray, and Walker IV are all out.
San Antonio Spurs’ Gregg Popovich gave an update on guard Derrick White’s recovery and said he is on the right track. “He’s progressing as they hoped. I don’t know how much longer it is going to take,” said Popovich to reporters before the team’s recent game against Indiana.
Popovich continued his assessment saying White is on his feet as his recovery continues. “He’s on the court now kind of walking around, trotting around, and putting some weight on his foot,” Popovich said.
Spurs guard Derrick White said Wednesday his recovery from a torn ligament in his left foot has been free of setbacks and is “going in the right direction.” White suffered the injury in a preseason game Oct. 10 at Atlanta. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said the next day the second-year pro would miss six to eight weeks.
Marc J. Spears: Another Spurs guard sidelined. Spurs guard Derrick White has a left plantar fascia tear.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has already penciled two names into his starting lineup this season. LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan, All-Stars both of them, will be in it. Popovich is ready to add a third name as well. Derrick White will be the Spurs’ opening-night point guard after Dejounte Murray’s devastating knee injury. “We’re going with him,” Popovich said. “He’s our guy.”
Tom Orsborn: Patty Mills on if Derrick White is ready to start at PG: “He’s got to be ready. He has come a long way. He had a great summer and preseason…He has that tough, fearless attitude with the ball. And obviously his length on defense can be great for us.” #Spurs

Tom Orsborn: Pop on Derrick White becoming increasingly comfortable in his second season: “Derrick has paid his dues. He’s starting to understand and believe that he belongs, and it’s starting to show on the court.” #Spurs

it became clear to White that the Spurs must trust him, that the moves signal he will have a bigger role this season after appearing in just 17 regular season games last season. “It’s nice to know that they have faith in me, that they are confident in me,” White said Wednesday. “It’s tough to see all those guys go. They did so much for the organization. But I’ve got to make the most of my opportunities. That’s been my focus all summer long, trying to get better and better.” that they have faith in me, that they are confident in me.”
MT: If I recall, San Antonio picked 29th, so were you sweating a bit not knowing if Utah or the Spurs were going to swoop in and steal Hart from you… Jesse Buss: We really wanted Hart, and it’s funny because Hart seems like a Spurs guy. What you’d imagine with some of the players they’ve had. He would have fit there, but they went a different direction (Derrick White), and we felt ecstatic that Hart was there and could come and do a lot of good things for us right away.
