C.J. Watson (calf) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

Watson has been sidelined since November 9 with the calf injury, so he'll more than likely be brought along very slowly following such a lengthy absence. There's no reason to pick him up in most leagues, but Watson will likely take away most of Shabazz Napier's minutes once he's fully up to speed.
