Deviin Vassell and Jeremy Sochan rule out for the rest of the year

It’s been a tough season for the San Antonio Spurs in 2023-24. At 18-75, the team has the worst record in the Western Conference and will miss out on the playoffs. The one positive for the franchise this season has been the elite play of rookie Victor Wembanyama. 

However, the 20-year-old can only do so much each night to try and help the team win. Wembanyama has had help at times but not as consistent as the team would like. San Antonio’s Devin Vassell and Jeremy Sochan are dealing with injuries. As of yesterday, both players were shut down for the remainder of the 2023-24 season. The Spurs have seven games left before the year is over.

It’s no secret that Victor Wembanyama is the best player on San Antonio’s roster in 2023-24. He’s on the top of other team’s scouting reports. That’s where other players can thrive and find their role with the Spurs. So much attention is drawn to Wembanyama that it often leaves his teammates with wide-open looks. That’s where SG Devin Vassell thrived this season for San Antonio. Vassell was the 11th pick for the Spurs in the 2020 NBA Draft.

This season was his fourth with the team and he made 62 starts in 68 games. The 23-year-old averaged a career-high (19.5) points and (4.1) assists per game. However, his season is being cut short due to a stress reaction in his foot. San Antonio is not in a position to make the playoffs. It makes sense why they are shutting down Vassell early. Not ideal for the team but it won’t matter with just seven games left in 2023-24.

Devin Vassell and Jeremy Sochan are done for the season. 😔
