Draymond Green made 1-of-10 from the field for five points with eight rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.
He's actually in a brutal offensive slump over his last four, making just 18.2 percent from the field. Green has made just 2-of-15 beyond three feet, but he did make 9-of-10 from the line. He's not on your fantasy team for scoring anyway, so his fantasy owners shouldn't sweat the slump too much. Although, his playing time is also down to just 21.3 minutes per game. Green has been a top-15 player on the season for total value in standard leagues, but his owners can probably expect a slight drop with the Warriors clinching a postseason spot already.
The Warriors are expected to sign Jose Calderon after his buyout from the Lakers.
The Warriors released Briante Weber today, so clearly they feel they have a great shot at Calderon. The 35-year-old guard won't see much playing time unless Stephen Curry is out of the lineup.
Andre Iguodala dished out a season-high nine assists against the Nets on Saturday, adding five points, two rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.
He assisted seven different players in this game with some fancy passing all night. Not having Kevin Durant (hand) helped Iguodala, but his versatility makes him a beneficiary when basically any starter is out of the lineup. He's actually been super sneaky as a sixth-round guy in his last 15 games, so feel free to keep riding him. Although, there will be rest next month.
Patrick McCaw started against the Nets on Saturday with nine points, four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.
Kevin Durant's left hand was bandaged on Friday, but he is not expected to miss much time. It took about three months, but McCaw is starting to show why he had so much hype in preseason and in Summer League. Once the Warriors lock up homecourt, we could see plenty of McCaw in mid-April.
The Warriors will release Briante Weber.
It's buyout season and the Warriors will be looking at guys like Jose Calderon. This is actually a positive for Weber because some team with less talent will be signing him.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored a team-high 16 points during a 112-95 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.
Even with a dearth of wings tonight, RHJ still logged 100 percent of his minutes at power forward. Based on that, it seems like he'll be getting almost all of his minutes there going forward. It's obviously not a bad idea with Hollis-Jefferson's defense and based on how he's made just 29.5 percent on jumpers this year, so keeping him closer to the basket should reduce those total J's. He is trending up, scored at least 15 points in consecutive games for the first time in his career, and is worth a very long look in standard leagues.
Jeremy Lin played 15 minutes with nine points, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Warriors on Saturday.
Just like on Friday, he was right at 15 might again. That doesn't really feel like a coincidence for the oft-injured Lin and the Nets will obviously take it easy on their highest-paid guard. If you want to pick him up, just remember that he will be seeing a ton of maintenance days going forward.
Brook Lopez scored just nine points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.
It's just the seventh game Lopez has played the second half of a back-to-back set, but it's worth a mention he did play in the last set earlier this month. Losing 16 games straight has to be taking its toll on Brook, but this dud is a fluke for one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference. He should flirt with early-round value, but the possible rest is going to be very annoying going forward. This was also his 505th start as Net for the second most in franchise history.
